Happy Halloween! In honor of the spookiest day of the year, here’s a round up of 5 of my favorite horror games!
From the folks that are also responsible for Amnesia, and the Penumbra series, this first person horror game is quickly establishing a strong hold in the genre. A mix between monsters and jump-scares this game stays with you after you play it.
Play as one of several well worn game tropes in this cinematic horror game. Mirroring every slasher film you’ve seen this game preys on the players expectations, and then pulls the rug out, a choose your own adventure of terror.
This gothic horror title by Hidetaka Miyazaki is immersive and disturbing. Demons and monsters of all ilk will attempt to maim and kill you in this beautifully rendered action role-playing video game.
Five Nights at Freddy’s
You start your new job as a security guard in a creepy ‘family fun center’ where surely Norman Bates would have played as a child. The jump-scares are a plenty in this game, so much so that the 4 chapter is on the way and a bevy of fan made versions have been released since the first, which has only been out since 2014.
The first-person psychological survival horror video game, which was initially a playable trailer for Silent Hills (the now cancelled survival horror video game that was under development by Kojima Productions for PlayStation 4) has become a gold standard in horror games.
