In your opinion, what are the "main ingredients" to any horror game?

Horror games are supposed to be one of the most immersive and obviously the scariest or unnerving experience out of all the genres. But what makes a game particularly scary, in your opinion? For me it has to be fluent control (I hate tank controls, as they're not needed to be scary - see Amnesia), amazing voice acting, spectacular story and storytelling, a sense of helplessness (no weapons, only running and hiding) and most importantly, an eerie soundtrack that will haunt you for weeks to come.

    I agree. Suspense is the main element for me. Although I don't generally play horror games, when I played 'The X-Files: Resist or Serve', the scares I got came from zombies unexpectedly appearing from behind a door.
