Best Halloween Horror Games
When Halloween draws near, there's just one thing on our minds: horror games. Also candy, but horror games, too! Getting yourself frightened enough for a few nightmares is a simple matter of firing up a good horror game and jumping in. So turn off the lights, start the downloads, and prepare for a scare.
Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location - The amazingly successful episodic horror series Five Nights at Freddy's released a brand new expansion just in time for Halloween. In case you've been too scared to try the game before, here's the scoop. You're a security guard working the night shift at a pizza place called Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. The animatronic characters in the joint are malfunctioning, and in order to survive you have to track their location by switching through security cameras. It's a tense and invigorating game, one part puzzle, one part horror, and all parts amazing.
Killing Room - Looking for a little terror with your first person shooting? This intense FPS takes place in a twisted parody of a reality show where you're a contestant in the Killing Room. Demented enemies attack you full-on, forcing you to pick up a painfully large weapon and spray bullets until you run out. Features like permanent death, random level generation, and insanely high difficulty are perfectly designed to make you feel unsettled and in serious danger at all times. If you want to experience horror while testing your reflexes, Killing Room is the way to go.
Dying Light - What if surviving a zombie apocalypse took more than just bullets? What if you had to run, hide, drive, fly and crawl your way across a massive open world, all while setting traps and using your wits to stay alive? That's exactly what the heavy-hitting action game Dying Light aims for, and boy does it pack a punch. Arm yourself and scavenge for supplies as you do everything in your power to live through the night. The zombies are hungry for brains, don't let them have their way or it's game over for you!
SOMA - Nobody knows horror like Frictional Games, the masterminds behind Penumbra and Amnesia. SOMA is a survival adventure game that will chill you to the bone. Deep below the ocean is an abandoned facility. As you delve through locked terminals and secret documents, you slowly start to realize it's not as abandoned as you thought. There are no guns or bombs in SOMA. To survive, you have to outsmart your enemies. Failing that, turn around and run. Just... run. One of the most amazing horror games ever made. Guaranteed to give you nightmares.
