List RulesWhich is the horror game you most want to rise from the grave?

October is a time to celebrate the things that go bump in the night. Horror game franchises, especially those that have long since been forgotten, shine right about now and there's no shortage of them. If you love the little fright you get when an evil character jumps from nowhere to suck away your sanity and soul, then you're probably familiar with the classics. Only the truly dedicated tend to know, however, about the old scary video games that didn't make it as well as their mainstream counterparts. Certainly there are more than a few forgotten horror games that you've heard of but have never had the chance to play. 

This list celebrates the infamous horror gems like Silent Hill and the lesser known gems like Clock Tower but they're all great. There's a nightmare in here for everyone. Which is the horror game you most want to rise from the grave the most? Make sure to vote!
