It takes a special kind of person to enjoy a horror game. True aficionados intentionally seek out the scariest moments in video games because they assumedly love being drenched in a cold sweat. Some of the scariest video game scenes of all time come from games that aren't particularly well-remembered, but that might just be because players were scarred for life by the eerie titles.
The most terrifying sequences in video games pull off scares that no other medium can accomplish. Sure, it's spooky to see zombies chew up human flesh in the Resident Evil movies, but having to personally escape those zombies adds a whole new dimension of terror to a Friday night scarefest.
