Halloween is almost here, and in anticipation for the night of frights, we’ve rounded up the scariest, most terrifying, and downright horrifying games that you should boot up this month!
Resident Evil 2
Platforms: PS2, Gamecube
The first game in the long-running Resident Evil series raised the bar in the horror genre, and then the sequel took things to a whole new level. Creepy police stations, deserted streets, abandoned schools and some of the scariest creatures made this game something to be afraid of. With the highly-anticipated remake coming in 2019, it couldn’t be a better time to play this Capcom classic.
The Evil Within
Platforms: PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One
From the disturbing creatures to the spine-chilling environments and traps, The Evil Within pulls no punches with its horror delivery. Coming from the mind of Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil‘s creator), you know you’re getting some horror pedigree with The Evil Within, and Bethesda’s nightmarish survival horror delivers it in spades!
Silent Hill is the pinnacle of spooky survival, opting for a slower-pace but still delivering the heart-pounding tension. From the eerie fog to the static over the radio as monsters approached, Silent Hill scored big in the horror department and even built a cult following of fans, who to this day still consider it one of gaming’s scariest titles.
Platforms: PC, PS3, Xbox 360
While two following sequels are pretty damn scary, the original Dead Space takes the prize for leaving everyone trembling. EA’s insatiable shot at the horror genre went on to create one of the most cinematically frightening and hair-raising games of all time.
