Top 15 Recommended Horror Games by Japanese Readers

Goo rankings recently held another vote for which horror games their readers would recommend. Not just Japanese games, but any horror games in general. It’s important to keep in mind that these aren’t necessarily strictly horror games, but include action and adventure games with strong horror elements as well. Ever wondered what’s popular in the land of the rising sun, and how it compares to games back home? Let’s check them out!

15. The Evil Within (PS4)
14. Outlast Trinity (PS4)
13. Siren 2 (PS2)
12. Dead by Daylight (PS4)
11. Resident Evil 7 (PS4)
10. Silent Hill HD Edition (PS3)
09. Clock Tower (SNES)
08. Dead Space (PS3)
07. Bioshock 2 (PS3)
06. Resident Evil 2 Remake (PS4)
05. Yomawari (PS4)
04. Prey (PS4)
03. The Last of Us (PS4)
02. Resident Evil Origins Collection (PS4)
01. Fatal Frame (PS2)

Goo credits Resident Evil with really kicking off the horror game genre in modern times, which I find hard to disagree with, nor is it a surprise to see it several times on that list. What is a surprise is the first Fatal Frame in that coveted number one spot, and not FF2 or FF3. Interesting.

What are your thoughts on the list? Let me know!
