The Scariest Video Game Monsters Of All Time

Whether horror, action, adventure, or anything in between, game developers like to create monsters that terrify you. From creepy little girls to eldritch horrors, this is really why we like to play video games: to slay demons that scare us. Lucky for you, we've compiled a list of some of the scariest video game monsters of all time. Vote up the ones that truly frighten you, and downvote the ones that you don't think are very scary. 

From Silent Hill's Pyramid Head, you get a horror that you can't escape — the truly ugly look of your inevitable judgment. In other places, like Resident Evil, you get the utterly gross Lickers, whose tongue will cut you in half, their brains are on the outside of their heads, and they can climb on walls. Then, there's always the Headcrabs from Half-Life, which will never fail to make you jump out of your seat. Scary monsters in video games are always welcome, if only so that we can end them. 

Check out our list of the best video game monsters and vote for your favorites! Then take a look at some of our other video game lists to see what you should be playing next.
