Halloween is right around the corner, and that means having a scary list of great scary video games to play! If you’re not like me (I do not like scary games) then, check out these games to give you a scare!
10. Doom 3
Yes, the scariest of the series. Doom 3 differed from the previous versions. Small corridors, more dark spaces, and, when it came out, no flashlight on your guns. There were plenty of jump scares from the demons of Mars. It was a good fun shooter that made you slowly walk through every new corridor.
9. The Evil Within 2
The sequel was so freaky, I could not finish it. Also, lots of gore. It gave me a good fright and some haunting scenes that are hard to forget. Even though the combat was ok, it was truly scary.
A different take on scary games. Outlast brought a more pacifist side to the horror games. Armed with only a video camera and your wits. It challenged players to move deliberated, silent, and run screaming if all else failed. The gamer was doing the scream not the character. It was scary, I could not handle. However, people that love this genre will fair better than me.
7. Resident Evil 2
Instead of always aiming for the head, players had to “dismember” xenomorphs.
6. Alan Wake
One of the more interesting games. In Alan Wake, players had to shine a light on everything. I mean everything. The way it worked is that the darkness can only be killed by using the flashlight and shining a light on the enemies. Then, you can blow their heads off with your gun. It was an interesting take, that will sure to fright the best of you.
However, if you have never moved, the alien would find you.
4. Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Step into the light. Also, make sure your lantern is always full of oil. It’s another interesting take on the horror genre. The player is a guy in a castle uncovering the mysteries. However, if the light goes out the darkness will consume you. Make sure to always be near a light source. Descent if you dare!
3. Resident Evil 7
The more innovative games of the Resident Evil franchise. It brought the first person view, and, rebooted the franchise from the terrible Resident Evil 6. It’s a game that will scare you. Resident Evil 7 is gore, very gore, with plenty of dread. The evil family has a secret they are hiding and so does your missing girlfriend. Find out the truth and save your girlfriend? You will only find out if you play the game!
