I'm new to writing, hope you enjoy reading my reviews.

Ok so it's not a review as such but I'd like to know what people find more scary, either the films or the games. From my personal view I have to say that the horror games scare me the most as I haven't found a film that has made me really scared after the film. Unless its been the psychological films.

The readers who think "well why are games more scary than films?". In my opinion games are far more scarier, just for the fact that you are in control of that character and you fight for that character to survive through whatever horror comes. In the film you only experience the frights once, for me that is. with a game there can be different endings, a different sequence of how things happen and so on.

With films I just don't know why but i just don't jump. A game can create an atmosphere easily compared to a film. With sounds, eerie music and dark rooms I believe games are superior to horror films. Still not convinced?. Then some games you should play are: The F.E.A.R series, Silent Hill and Resident Evil series, especially the earlier games in the series. Scariest of all, you must play amnesia.

So then, what side are you on? and what games/films have terrified you the most? I would love any suggestions for me to play and to watch .
