If you are a fan of playing games that make you creep in a dark and secluded space wondering what or when something will attack you then you probably love most of the top horror games on the market. But what if I told you that there are some games that are not so well known but still great? It’s time to get spooked because we’re talking about 10 best horror games.
Dollhouse’s plot is centered on the mind of a therapist suspended from his job, a lonely housewife, and a disturbed young child. Each of their lives is conveniently interconnected, and it’s up to the player to decide how everything is going to play out in a non-linear self-driven horror experience. Sounds cool right? Because it looks creepy as hell.
Our Lord and Savior Cthulhu is back?
Yes, there is a new Call of Cthulhu game, haven’t you heard? This was developed by Frogware and Focus home interactive, and it’s the latest horror game in a long-running series developed by old-school author HP Lovecraft. It’s based on the pen and paper RPG of the same name than many of your guys know and love. What we know is that we’re pretty excited.
The forest is a weird, terrifying survival horror game set in a lush and beautiful forest environment. It’s basically an open-ended, open-world survivor game, similar to Day-Z or Stranded Deep or something like that. You’re fighting off creepy humanoid monsters. As always in these games, you’re the lone survivor of the plane crash, and you find yourself in the forest fighting off these guys. They’re kind of like cannibalistic mutants, and they’re really creepy.
Outlast 2 is the sequel to; you’ve to guessed it, Outlast. We really don’t know anything about this game’s release date (besides the fact that it was postponed) or anything about the game for that matter other than it’s again being developed by Red Barrels studios. But judging by the Whistleblower DLC, it looks like Red Barrel is really looking to take their franchise to another level.
Doom goes on this list because it deserves to be in it. Doom is more of a first-person shooter, but it embraces horror troops and the original was pretty creepy. It remains to be seen how scary Id software made this game, but I am counting on it to be absolutely awesome and visceral and full of destruction, blood and gore, violation of every demon’s personal space right and all that fun stuff.
As there are new games upcoming every month there are really too many choices to make. But not every game is worth playing and we, hardcore horror game fans, are well aware of that. But at least we can try to change the gaming society by not buying and play those horrible abominations of game titles and thus make game developing companies to simply make better games.
