1) Dead by Daylight

Gameplay trailer

The last game in our list is another survival horror game. This one borrows from everything that came before it. You can play as a survivor where it’s your job to escape by either restoring power to the generators or by finding a back door out. Or, you can play as a killer and that’s where the real fun begins.

The killer’s main objective is simple: stop the survivors. The Entity wants the survivors hunted down and sacrificed before they can escape. All the killer has to do is patrol the area to find the survivors. Once the survivor has been injured and caught they are hung on a sacrificial meat hook to later be devoured.

There are some amazing options as the killer. Each one has its own skill. You can play as the nurse from Silent Hill or Freddy Krueger or even one of their original characters. Each one has an unique skill like bear traps, invisibility, or hatchets. The killer cannot upgrade their skills but you can add perks like Barbecue and Chill which unlocks potential in one's aura reading ability. So after hooking a Survivor, all other Survivors' aura are revealed to you for 3 seconds.

Fellow survivors can come to your aid but you cannot save yourself.

One of the original characters from Dead by Daylight you can see, in the background, one of the sacrificial hooks.

This game is full of fun easter eggs from cult classic horror movies and games like this one from the Saw franchise
