    It's not a scary game, but being a zombie survival, I thought I mention it.

    Left 4 Dead (2)

    These games are so polished they make my eyes bleed.
    Such attention to details, and the sound... phew effin briliant.
    Also some of the finest map making that ever made it to PC

    And now something that's also built on Source, yet completely different:

    I applaud the effort. It's dark and gritty, but the bugs man... :(

    Amnesia, The Penumbra series, Call Of Cthulhu and Dead Space 1 and 2. These should keep you scared sheitless for quite a while (and if you have 3D Vision, even better as the immersion level just gets much more intense).

    I tried to play Silent Hill Shattered Memories on the emulator, but it was buggy ;/

    Also throwing this out there, but there will be a new augmented reality Fatal Frame game on the Nintendo DS! Dammit I need a DS now...

    OMFG, I need this. I imagined playing Fatal Frame like this for years and now it is reality - augmented reality that is.

    Some guys playing it at a shrine at night. Looks like just an extra mode to take pics with a ghost.

    Yup, I tried that too and the lights are all wrong, unplayable.
    Tried to play the PSP verion but it's small screen and limited control kind of reduce the enjoyment.

    For me, the first silent hill is the scariest of all silent hills

    Absolutely.

    Although i still like the second one more because of the story and the characters.

    The Series took a major blow after part 3.

    Condemned was by far the only game to ever scare the **** out of me. That game pulled me in and would not let go until it was completed. Great game!

    Doom coz i was too little back then to handle the demon horde :p

    Id say silent hill 2nd coz i was still relatively young and the ****y controls made those damn flying things seem so hard :/

    Nowdays i find that "scary" games make laugh rather than scare. They almost as bad horror movies, if not worse :p

    I loved Doom when i was younger. was hungry for demons blood :D

    I am playing Alan Wake and at first it was a little bit scary, but it got very repetitive! Hopefully it will pick up, only u chapter 3.

    Silent Hill 2 was creepy, very creepy! Also Amnisia got me scared! Also Stalker has its own scary moments!

    F.E.A.R., and as you mention, the expansion packs, are at the top of my list (I agree about some of the packs being scarier than the original). I've played through these each a dozen times. I don't scream like a girl any more, but I still cringe at least every time I play them.
    Doom 3 was definitely frightening on the first play through, but those scares diminish easily.
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. had an underground bunker or two that were wonderfully creepy the first time through.
    Alien vs Predator II was creepy for the first couple of playthroughs.
    Metro 2033 had a few very well done creepy moments.

    I tried to play Silent Hill 2, which would have topped this list if I had gotten further than the first level before the lousy controls were too much, and I stopped playing. I want to play Dead Space, but am concerned that the controls are similarly lousy and haven't yet been convinced that they're not.

    The controls are that way so you can feel helpless, not to mention it was the norm back then for survival horror, there's also that the standard "character moves the direction you press" thing does not work with artsy cameras, and said camera is an important part of what makes those games what they are, as hiding the monsters at odd angles so you can't really see them while your radio goes off telling you there is something nearby can increase tension quite a bit.

    Combine that with the rest of the audio and you have something very troubling. There was truly an awful lot of attention to details in the first 3 games of the series. Give them a chance.

    As for Dead Space, the first one had its moments, but mostly, the way gore and ragdolls are handled is just comical and it actually kind of ruins them to me.

    Games that made me jump?

    Well the original Stalker played in the dark, still has one of the best atmospheres ever and some real jump causing moments.

    AvP, the original one, the motion detector, it is so iconic the first time you get that distinctive beep, beep the hairs on the back of my neck stood up.

    FEAR also had some pretty decent shock moments.
