TU TEN: Spookiest Horror Games

Looking for a great interactive horror experience that doesn’t involve walking around “the bad part of town?”

Have movies become too predictable to successfully scare you?

This Halloween, why not try one of these top ten horror videogames?

Outlast: This game is a great experience to play alone or with a group of friends.

Set in an insane asylum, it boasts a plethora of jump scares and horrific encounters with no guns or offensive weapons to defend yourself.

It can be found on almost any platform.

Five Nights at Freddy’s (series): Looking for a game that is cheap but effective? Five Nights at Freddy’s has you covered.

This game (or any of its sequels) can be picked up on PC for anywhere between five and seven dollars.

It is comprised almost solely of jump-scares, but is a great game to play with friends.

Dead Space (1 or 2): Asylums and pizza restaurants not your thing?
Try taking a vacation in the cold vacuum of Dead Space.

Featuring futuristic settings, zombie-like abominations and copious amounts of dismemberment, this game is a solid choice for those looking to be spooked in space.

It can be picked up on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 as well as PC.

Alien: Isolation: In space no one can hear you scream.

And scream you will, either out of fear or frustration of this difficult game.

Alien: Isolation is a great example of high budget horror done right.

With stunning graphics, intelligent enemies and a lot of sneaking around, this game is one of the best choices on this list and can be found on almost any platform.

Slender: the Eight Pages: It was popular a few years ago and is still around for those who want to play a horror game at the low price of zero dollars.

It’s similar to Five Nights in the sense that it mostly relies on the feeling of something coming to get you mixed with the occasional jump scare and is probably best played with friends.

Amnesia: the Dark Descent: Nightmare castles, dark dungeons, tortured monsters; if any of these sound like a great experience, check out Amnesia on PC.

It can be purchased on Steam and is just the right thing to scratch that “spooky dungeon” itch.

Bioshock: Bioshock, while a little dated in graphics, remains an eerie experience.

It is set in the failed underwater city of Rapture where looting and insanity have become the norm.

The dimly lit art deco hallways of a once great metropolis are filled with danger.

This game isn’t quite as horror driven as the others on this list, but it is still worth checking out and can be found on most last gen platforms and PC.

SOMA: Created by the same minds behind Amnesia, this game is set in an underwater base named PATHOS-II.

You must outsmart your way around ever-present danger, as there is no way to fight back in this game. It can be purchased on PS4 and PC.

Silent Hill (series): The silent hill series is to horror games what The Exorcist is to horror movies.

Relying mostly on psychological horror and atmosphere, this series inspired many others to take the atmospheric and less gore-based approach to creating Horror games.

These games can be found on Xbox, Playstation and PC.

Resident Evil (series): Another grandfather of survival horror to make this list, this game strives less for atmospheric and mental horror and more for the gritty/gory type of encounter.

The earlier games in the series provide a classic horror experience, while the newer games provide a challenging adventure.

These games can be found on Xbox, Playstation and PC.
