Alien Isolation is probably number one for me. Before it was the first few Silent Hill games, with the first one taking the lead. Fatal Frame, I can't remember which one, probably was a little bit more scarier than the Silent Hill ones just because of the voices I kept thinking I heard. I never got into them unfortunately besides a rental, but plan on doing so. However, Alien Isolation is the only game that made my heart thump in my chest, and the music helped quite a bit. I haven't played through the DLC, but I definitely need to. They may have done too good of a job capturing the Alien universe.
The original Resident Evil games never really scared me outside of the third one. Seven did a fairly decent job, as well as the remake of the original. The crimson heads really helped. The remake of two is probably what I consider the scariest in the series. Mr. X and the sound design of the zombies are big contributing factors.
