We've all at some point or another played games that have left us with a chill that goes down to the very bone marrow.
Most of the time it can be horror games that do more then just deliver the usual jumpscares, sometimes they go above and beyond with some downright ghastly things that gives you that very chill to the bone feeling.
The Evil Within.
Now while this isn't the survival horror comeback for Shinji Mikami as a lot of people hoped for, it still delivers one hell of an atmosphere with its messed up enviroments and, later on, certain puzzles.
And of course the subject matter of the game regarding the twisted evils that lurk deep inside our minds in one form or another is yet another chilling thing.
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.
Oh boy, this game certainly did a great job at making you feel extremely uneasy when reading some of the journals you find throughout the game.
Especially one early on where Oswald Mandus, the protagonist of the game, had held a big feast where he was serving "pig" meat for his fellow rich men, although anyone who played the game know very well what the meat really was.....
If there is one thing Rockstar Games is quite capable of doing, then it is making games that show the absolutely horrific sides of us humans and one part of their noire detective game L.A. Noire has the protagonist Cole Phelps, while he's assigned to the Homicide department of LAPD, and his partner Rusty Galloway hunt down the infamous Black Dahlia killer.
Cole is forced to play a "game" created by the sick killer involving finding clues to his hideout in locations that are extremely dangerous to get to.
Eventually when they do figure out where the freak is hiding, they find a very disturbing scene with a bathtub full of blood, various tools used by the murderer covered in blood as well as a statue of the mythical figure of Prometheus.
What games have left you with a chilly feeling in the bones?
But do refrain from spoilers if it involves very recent games.
