While P.T (A playable teaser for the now cancelled game Silent Hills) never had an official soundtrack, one of the creepy audio elements gamers could experience were the strange recordings (one in Swedish) coming from the radio in the hallway.
The horror genre has a huge following, and with games being a more interactive experience than books and films, the horror also become more real and terrifying. It is safe to say that music and audio in horror games play an important part.
Moving on to a much smoother soundtrack, Rule of Rose caused chaos and debate when it first came out, while not really being one of the most graphic horror games out there. Elements of bullying and sexual imagery are rough, but it is the atmosphere and the music that truly get under your skin. The soundtrack was composed by Yutaka Minobe and were recorded without electronic instruments as the developers wanted to add a more human element the atmosphere of the game.
