We horror fans love getting scared and a good jump scare from horror games are the best way to deliver such an immersive experience. Here are the top 10 scariest jump scares in video games. You already know that games like Resident Evil, Fatal Frame, and Five Nights at Freddy’s are mentioned here but which scenes in particular? I was looking forward to seeing Silent Hill mentioned but PT, the playable game trailer for the now dead Silent Hills game did make this list.
