Monsters, killers, dangers and the scent of fear in the air can be smelt for miles.

11. Dead by Daylight 

Dead by Daylight Gameplay

This game is a multiplayer where one player takes the role of a legendary killer, and the other four players will have to run, fight, and survive against these killers with unfathomable power. Finish the levels quest with all of your team, and you might just survive to the next round. With interesting and interactive environments, this cat and mouse horror game is great with your friends… and to figure out which one of those said friends won’t come back for you.

When you’re hung up to dry, no one can save you but your team.  


10. Resident Evil HD

Resident Evil Gameplay

The story takes place in 1998 outside of Raccoon City where multiple murders have taken place to lead the STARS officers to the mansion that started it all. You can either play as Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine while you explore the world. This game had a visual remake in 2015 to buff up voice acting and several game elements.

The dream team we always loved, and know the devastating future of.  


9. Resident Evil 2 Remake

Resident Evil 2 Remake Gameplay

You follow the story of either Leon Kennedy, a very new rookie cop that was supposed to start work before the outbreak. Or the alternative Claire Redfield, a very well-known STARS operative’s sister, as they try to find each other again in the middle of Hell itself: Raccoon City. They race against time to stop the Umbrella Corp from destroying them, the city, and all evidence of the company’s numerous crimes.

No one likes Lickers, we like them least when they jump off the ceiling at us.  


8. Alien: Isolation

Alien: Isolation Gameplay

In this game, you play as Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen and the main protagonist of the series. While trying to discover what happened to your mother, you’re faced with the creature stalking you every movement. You leave your nice, cushy welding job to go to a station soon to be shut down, only to find the alien hunts in the very halls you crouch run down. Don’t run, don’t make noise, or she’ll find you.

She hunts you, not the other way around.  


7. Friday the 13th: The Game

Friday the 13th: The Game Gameplay

Our villain is back with another interesting game surrounding Camp Crystal Lake! You and six other unlucky souls will do everything possible to escape and survive while the most well-known killer in the world tracks you down and brutally slaughters you. With a very similar gameplay to Dead by Daylight, this game lets you play as either camp counselor or murderer. Good luck!

Did someone say they wanted a smashing good time? Bet they didn’t mean their skulls.


6. Prey

Prey Gameplay

Prey is a fantastic, futuristically set game where you play the younger (male or female, woo for gender select!) sibling to the tech giant, William Yu. Now trapped out in space with no memory of what happened, your research station is now filled to the brink with creatures never seen before; and they all want revenge for their captivity. You work your way back to your brother, learning about the aliens that have taken over everyone and everything.  

Always check and make sure that your coffee cup didn't actually move. 



SOMA Gameplay

This thought-provoking game made you really consider what the definition of life is. You were once a man with a rare and strange form of brain disease- so for research, you volunteered for a brain scan. Who knew you’d wake up centuries into the future in a nonhuman body desperate to save the last scraps of humanity… or so you think. With tons of plot twists and deep questions on the true meaning of consciousness and soul in the balance, you will have to survive the end of the world. And that’s also at the bottom of the ocean, by the way.  

What you see is not always true, and sometimes, it’s more fact than you can accept.


4. The Evil Within

The Evil Within Gameplay

This terrifying game follows the story of a down on his luck cop who gets trapped inside an experiment. Unfortunately, this experiment is run by an insane mental patient that thinks he can rule the world with his brain. Ripping people from one reality and forcing them into another controlled by his mind alone. During this, you find several plot pieces concerning outside the world of the lunatics head- such as to the case of your missing wife and daughter. Fight through the nightmares to free yourself from this cursed place.

What goes bump in the night no longer concerns you, it just scares the life out of you.


3. Outlast

Outlast Gameplay

One of the best trilogies released today and made gamers everywhere fear to play this alone, Outlast sets the bar for mental asylum based horror games. You play as a reporter in the first game, breaking into the now condemned Mt. Massive Asylum to only find patients left behind and grotesque murders everywhere. Discover the secret deep below this place, and you might just survive to write the article.

The monsters inside may walk on two legs, but they are not human in any sense. 



GTFO Gameplay

Who doesn’t like going into a pitch-black prison that’s taken over by monsters that have killed all your friends? Oh, and any noise or light at all will end your playthrough and start you from the beginning! This game is intense and recommended for playthroughs with four people, even though many have tried to play it by their lonesome. You, and your other three cellmates, are now being sent on a mission to go in and bring back your target; preferably alive.  

The onslaught is never-ending at times, be prepared with your friends to fight until dawn.


1. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

With scenes that wanted to make us puke, and other scenes that made us want to cry- this Resident Evil game took a new spin on several of the franchises usual styles. This created a terrifying game where you follow a husband looking for his wife, who had been missing for several years until sending a very cryptic message to him one day. When you go after her, you find much, much more than you bargained for.

Honey, I think I want a divorce after you lied to me about being dead and a secret government agent.
