The video game horror genre is such a unique and thrilling experience that everyone should appreciate. You aren’t just a spectator watching something awful happen to characters you don’t care about onscreen. You are the character. Every step you take can either bring horror or salvation, and sometimes there is no choice. You have to overcome your fears to take the next step and to continue through the game.
If this sounds like the sort of thrill that you are looking for, we have rounded up the best games for horror fans of every intensity. Regardless of whether your idea of a thrill is watching the latest in eerie horror movies, a slasher flick, or even if you get your adrenaline pumping from playing online casinos UK games, here is the roundup of the best games in 2020 for thrills (and of course, those guts):
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
Resident Evil is one of the biggest and best franchises in the horror game genre, and the newest installment, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, harkens back to its golden era. You can expect all the traditional survival-horror gameplay that we all loved back in the day.
This remake has been long-awaited, especially after the success of the remake of Resident Evil 2. Follow Jill along as she investigates the infection in Raccoon City, available on consoles and PC now.
The Last of Us Part 2
The Last of Us was a masterpiece, and the sequel looks just as stunning and nervewracking as its predecessor. Follow a now grown-up Ellie as she deals with a human cult in this vengeance-based storyline. Unfortunately, the game has been delayed yet again, but fingers crossed we’ll be able to get our hands on it before the end of 2020.
Remothered: Broken Porcelain
The sequel to Remothered: Tormented Fathers is expected to be released in 2020. Though not much is known about it yet, it is expected to follow along the same vein that made its predecessor so successful. Set in Ashmann Inn, this psychological horror is sure to be right up the alley of any suspense fans.
The Wolf Among Us
Moving on to more mystery horror games, we have The Wolf Among Us. Made by the same company that brought us the widely successful Walking Dead series, this serial-game reportedly features great writing, immersion, and a truly incredible point and click adventure experience.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
