PS1 Horror Games List

Last Update: 21 Apr 2012

NES Horror (Trebek)
PS2 Horror List

There's something here to please just about every fan of the genre, from point-and-click graphic adventures to first-person shooters to text-based Japanese "sound novels". The categories I've used are pretty arbitrary since many games have elements from several different designs and others are hard to describe. But that's one of the appeals of horror games if you ask me.

Most Overlooked IMO: Silverload, Juggernaut, Necronomicon, ...いる!, Overblood, Enigma, Mizzurna Falls, 夕闇通り探検隊 (or Season of Twilight, among other titles), Terracon, Yakata Nightmare Project, LSD, Echo Night 2

Note: I couldn't find a translation for most, if not all, of the Japanese games on this list, so I went ahead and translated the titles myself. I am not Japanese, but I have some understanding of the language. If there's something just stupidly wrong with a translation, you can leave a comment.

Sound Novel

A genre that never left the shores of Japan, the sound novel can be described as a sort of visual Choose Your Own Adventure story set to the backdrop of various screens and songs. You progress through the story by reading the screens and making decisions along the way.


Point-and-click adventures go back at least as far as the NES, with the seminal game Uninvited. There are two basic forms of point-and-click games on this list: games like Clock Tower, in which you have 3rd-person control over a character in a 2D or 3D world; and games like Silverload, in which you play the game in 1st-person perspective and explore the environments screen-by-screen.


Basically, what I consider classic "survival horror." These are games where the focus is less on action and more on other elements, say for instance, puzzles, mood and atmosphere, or story.

Silent Hill 1 was a masterpiece, Resident Evil 1-3 are all classics, Dino Crisis 1 was underated imo, and Koudelka is a hidden gem that almost nobody played. I also enjoyed AITD The New Nightmare. Even though it wasn't the greatest survival horror game it had great atmosphere.

"It's an interesting feature of the horror "genre" that it can be designed in so many diverse ways, from point-and-click to RPG. In this sense, "horror" is sort of a super-genre, capable of taking on virtually any kind of game design."

I think horror is a theme not a genre. Some people claim that Baroque is an RPG but I can´t be sure because I never play myself.

Great list anyway. I hope to get more time to play most of them.

I find sound novels incredible interesting. Too bad they were only distributed in Japan. There are so many rare titles here!

Awesome list! I just got ClockTower and Aconcagua, and I'm really excited to play them.

@Fabian - If you can't find any of these games on ebay or any where else on the internet, you can download the ROMs for a few of them here: ( [Link removed - login to see] ).
