List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Xbox at some point.

If you owned a Xbox at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few horror games in your collection. After all, is there anything better than a scary video game that will make you jump out of your skin as you play it? The games on this list pit you against zombies, mutants, animals, and even other humans that are bent on killing you. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Xbox horror games of all time. At the time when the Xbox was the big thing, we had never seen graphics as killer as these before, and the horror games were even scarier as a result.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling horror games that were released for Xbox. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. This list features items like Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill 4: The Room, and many more. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
