Some games don't really scare me at all, but some that are standout in the genre are the 2002 remake of Resident Evil, The Evil Within, Silent Hill 2, Clock Tower and Alone in the Dark. Other mentions should go out to Dino Crisis, Obscure, Siren and Nocturne.
I think RE went rather BS after they made them into shooters, with optional co-op. Uh!
RE2 is supposed to be getting remade. I recently played the DLC for RE7 and they've really altered Chris' looks; I don't think it looks anything like he was in 5, 6 and Revelations, but we can just move on from that, as they changed Jill too. The DLC called 'End of Zoe' is too funny. A guy punching black monsters with just his hands?! LMAO...
I think RE is trying to mix horror and action, with the emphasis being on action only when you're playing an action type character. RE7 was a strange mix of action, horror and mystery.
One game I really enjoyed playing this year, is the remastered version of The Last of Us. It's not a total horror game because you also have to fight other survivors that try to kill you, but it is very well made. The graphics are the best the PS4 can have. There's some zombie like creatures called Clickers.
