I've found that it's pretty much impossible for a horror game to truly scare me, and I'm hoping there's at least one game out there (preferably a cheap one) that can pull it off.

The most any game has ever done to me is a slight twitch at a jumpscare from FNAF2. It wasn't even enough to qualify as making me "jump". (Though it was accompanied by a faked yelp for comedic purposes, as I was recording at the time.)

So, any of you have a game that can scare someone who is dead inside/immune to fear?

Try Fatal Frame/Project Zero II or Silent Hill 2.

If those doesn't scare you then you're probably lost;).
A comparison article of the 3DS and the Vita can be found on my blog:

If you post some examples of things you find scary outside of games, we should be able to suggest things!

For jump scares, the upcoming Visage looks great. Also if you can find a way to play PT as suggested above, please share!

I always like to suggest Resident Evil: Revelations as well, as it has great atmosphere and did jump scare me a few times. I haven't finished it yet, but it is great so far.

If you like atmosphere, I suggest all things Fatal Frame/Project Zero.

Actually didn't care for PT. Do you have any idea what's going on with Visage? PS4 disc release? Game looks awesome.

I probably know less than you do about Visage! I watched some stuff on YouTube about it, and it does look pretty cool.

I would recommend you to play The Last of Us on survivor difficulty or higher difficulty than that. Last time I played this game was on Hard difficulty, I could manage do the speed run. Yesterday I tried to play on Survivor difficulty and it was really challenging. You have less ammo, less supplies, tougher enemy.
If you can't have fun doing this, you're doing it wrong

The evil within on Akumu is an absolutely insane run! I've never done it before and I'm not planning on doing that!
