I actually just started playing Eternal Darkness yesterday, the atmosphere is excellent but it's way too easy to keep your sanity meter up high.Well, if you don't like jumpscares, then I'd advise against Spooky's House of Jump Scares, which doesn't really take itself very seriously anyway, and it's free. And especially avoid FNaF, since that's just jumpscares caused by unfair RNG (Played on a friend's computer, got annoyed and rage quit, didn't bother buying it).
As far as good horror games, I've heard Amnesia is a pretty good horror game, and if you have a Gamecube, I think Eternal Darkness falls under that genre as well, just be ready to be messed around with a lot. There's also a game called the static speaks my name, which is free and I recall is a psychological game about some guy's last few hours alive. Don't quote me on that, though, I haven't played it and I don't actually know if it qualifies horror or not.
Also, if you're fine with Visual/Kinetic Novels, Higurashi is available on steam, though six bucks can be a bit of a steep asking price if you're not generally into games where you literally just read your way through it with little to no actual gameplay.
I've been wanting to play these, I've heard that they are scary as hell. Although i've heard that the HD versions are terribleIf you can get ahold of the classic Silent Hill games (1,2,&3) you shouldn't be disappointed; as long as you don't mind some disturbing content. They're ALL about atmosphere and are still on my top favourite games list.
Yeah, I'd steer clear of the HD re-releases if possible. They removed a lot of the fog and ambient effects, and tried to mess with the visual noise to make up for it. Probably more importantly is that they re-dubbed 2 & 3 with new voice actors, and they lose a lot of feeling in the process.I've been wanting to play these, I've heard that they are scary as hell.

Silent Hill 2 is, I know for a fact. However, the game doesn't support systems with multiple CPU cores, and it can cause the game's audio to loop endlessly. The fix is to go into task manager and assign the game to only run on one core. Silent Hill 3 also has a PC version, though I've never played it. I heard that graphically it's the best version, but there's a couple of game breaking bugs, like falling through the level geometry to your death. How frequently this happens, I'm not sure.I don't know if any of them are on PC though.
