Favorite horror game/trope?

Working on a horror game, wondering what are some recommendations/some of your favorite tropes or types of scares in video games?

Here is my favorite scare in any game ever. Original silent hill, in the school you go into the locker room and see a locker futzing around, so you open it and a cat jumps out with a loud clanking noise. A classic jump scare, but the intent was not to scare you but to make you remember this scenario. Later on in the dark world, maybe an hour later gameplay wise, you enter the exact same room and the scenario seems to be playing out the exact same way. Something is in the locker bashing on the door wanting out, though when you open the door the inside of the locker is just coated in blood instead of having something inside. The subtlety of that scare really stuck with me all these years later.

I gotta get around to actually playing SH1, I own the disc for ps1, that sounds like an awesome scare.

Right? I prefer when games put me in a perpetual state of uneasiness instead of trying to be balls to the wall scary. It's why SH1 still stands out even though it's 23 years old. They really understood the tension and release cycle.

Agreed, I love uneasiness as well, i hope psychological horror makes a comeback in AAA games again. One of my favorite horror games was Haunting Ground bc of the uneasiness of the whole story and the characters.

I hope it does as well. The point of playing a horror game is to be scared after all. Honestly, the last time I felt uneasy playing a horror game was silent hill 3. I'm not sure if I've been desensitized or if the settings aren't up to snuff.

Make natural sacry sounds using the environment and not just loud booms makes it more engaging and more interesting

Horror lore based off story background and suspense building. Not jump scares 🙅‍♂️

Parasite Eve 2 on PS1 had some great scares/ suspense but my favourite was resident evil 3 when nemisis crashes through doors and buildings whilst chasing you

Alan Wake and Control. They're not typical horror games per se, but there's something really intriguing about dealing with supernatural atmospheres, entities, with a dash of a psychological thriller.
