Where have I seen Stranger Things' monster before?

Guys, I've just watched Stranger Things this week and I'm torturing myself trying to remember where did I see a similar monster before. More specifically, in which game did I see it? I'm almost sure I saw a monster in a game with the same head, probably not the body, though. Any of you have watched it?

Here's a link for a picture of it, for those who can't remember/didn't see it. I'm not putting the image directly here to avoid spoilers.

It reminds me of Silent Hill and Half-Life.

Yeah, Silent Hill was one of the several inspirations for the show according to the creators. I just couldn't find a monster with the same look.

Are you sure it's a game and not the Parasyte manga/anime?

I've never read or watched the manga/anime, but damn, that's pretty much the same monster (only that the one in ST doesn't really have a face)!

Reminds me of a Dune Sandworm.
