Top 5 Best Horror Games of 2017

Game developers have been working overtime to keep up with our gaming fantasies and the choices we have today for games on play station or our smartphones is no longer restricted to car racing or crushing fruits and candy. This is the age where you can be a character in your scariest horror movies by being immersed in the blood-chilling scenes but from the comfort of your chair.

  1. Alien: Isolation 

In this game, you are Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Sigourney Weaver and you are required to navigate the scary space station Sevastopol, ridden with the scariest aliens you have ever seen.

The xenomorph prowls the station, and the weapons on offer will not do a thing, so you are better off staying out of its way, but they work against all the other terrifying occupants. The slightest noise will attract the xeno to you and since you don’t have a stockpile of ammunition, you need to keep running and hiding.

  1. Resident Evil: Biohazard

Resident Evil has millions of fans worldwide for both their movie series and the gaming series.

In this game, you will meet the Baker family, while looking for your wife Mia who went missing mysteriously. You head out to Louisiana to find her, in an eerie farmhouse that houses the Bakers. You are Ethan Winters and it’s really scary when you are fighting this dangerous and unpredictable, supernatural family with very limited ammunition. So you will spend some considerable amount of time hiding.

  1. Little Nightmares

This game does not have the shootings and the goriness of other horror games, but when you are a young girl, navigating through the world that is constantly morphing, one time feeling like a house, the next time a restaurant and sways dangerously, your guts will be out all through the game.

Your character is Six, and you are in a bright yellow coat, which is pretty much attractive to the monsters in this game, which pop out in kitchens, bedrooms, the bathroom and you have to continuously dodge them.

  1. Outlast 2

With Outlast 2, you totally forget about the guns and the grenades and instead pick up your camera which is your sole weapon in this game. The battery doesn’t last as long as you think and especially in night vision, which is not so rosy when you have to rescue your wife from cultists who will want to kill you at every corner.

  1. Emily Wants to Play

There was the scary film, The Exorcism or Emily Rose, and then there is this game. You are a pizza delivery boy and you are done with the day’s delivery, well except on house on your route home. You know on the door, that opens, the lights are on, but nobody is behind that door and as you take a few steps inside, the door shuts behind you and your frantic efforts to open it are useless. You have to play with Emily and you won’t love the game.

In conclusion, these top 5 games aren’t the only games in the market today but you will want to start with these before you give others a try. These games promise all the suspense, the goriness and the scary scenes you have been longing for.
