Outlast: The Scariest Halloween Game
Friday the 13th: The Game
The goal of Friday the 13th: The Game is to make counselors scared. It has so many crazy and ridiculous parts that do the opposite. When Jason Voorhees is on the hunt, the scary atmosphere is often ruined by things like funny emotes, fake death scenes, and physics that don’t make sense. Even though Friday the 13th: The Game doesn’t take itself too seriously, it can be very scary when it wants to be.
In online lobbies, players are split into counselors and Jason. The counselors have to try to stay alive while Jason tries to find them. There’s nothing like the rush of adrenaline that comes with outrunning Jason, but even if players know that Jason is a joke, they’ll still be surprised by how scary he can be. This is the perfect Halloween game.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Outlast might make Amnesia: The Dark Descent look like a walk in the park. Since both games came out in 2013, they have been in a tight race for the title of “scariest survival horror.” Amnesia deserves a lot of credit for making a name for itself in the harsh early 2010s, when technology was not as good as now.
Outlast claims to be based on the horror movies Quarantine and REC. There are a lot of similarities between it and Amnesia that aren’t just a coincidence. In fact, it’s not too much of a stretch to think that Amnesia walked so Outlast could run. In Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Daniel has to get through Castle Brennenburg by solving puzzles, staying sane, and staying away from all kinds of scary creatures. Enjoy Halloween night with this thrilling game!
Kojima Productions let Playstation 4 owners experience the terror of P.T. as a sneak peek at the game Silent Hills, which was still being made at the time. The Japanese company Konami gave up on the project mentioned above, so the P.T. demo was never finished. After the announcement, Konami took P.T. off the PlayStation Store and made it impossible to reinstall.
Still, P.T. has the right to be remembered as one of the most immersive and scary experiences of the 21st century, especially the scene where the main character meets Lisa’s ghost in the hallway, an image that is scary enough to stick in your mind. Instead of using graphic violence and bloody images to make people feel uncomfortable and build suspense, P.T. creates a more real, paralyzing, and all-around fear.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a bit different from other Resident Evil games because it introduces the Baker family. They are a normal but slovenly group who were taken over by Eveline, a bioweapon that is disguised as an orphan girl. After the Baker family took in Eveline and agreed to raise her as their own, she infected them with a superorganism (Mold) and took control of their minds and basic functions, turning them into sadistic, cannibalistic slaves and murderers.
Ethan Winters must fight off the Baker family and leave the abandoned Louisiana ranch in order to find his wife Mia, who is also in Eveline’s control. There, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard adds a welcome dose of surrealism by mixing life-threatening situations that can be survived with boss fights that are impossible to win and impossible odds.
The Evil Within
Another horror title from 2014 is The Evil Within. Player will follow Krimson City Police Detective Sergeant Sebastian Castellanos. He is investigating the scene of a mass murder at Beacon Mental Hospital. He meets nightmare creatures and has to fight for his life in a dangerous place. After beating bosses, getting collectibles, and avoiding traps, players move on to the next level.
On the surface, The Evil Within looks like a gory bloodbath, but it’s really a thoughtful exploration of creepy themes that scratches the itch of gamers who miss the good old days. From beginning to end, the story has a tense, interesting, and, most of all, spine-chilling atmosphere that modern retellings have failed to match.
Even though it doesn’t need an introduction, Five Nights at Freddy’s isn’t a Halloween game that most people would expect to see on this list. Five Nights at Freddy’s is another example of the unstoppable and historic wave of hit games that came out in 2014. It seemed to become a huge hit spawning multiple sequels of a fictional universe that includes everything.
The player takes on the role of a security guard for the restaurant chain Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. To survive for several nights, they must use tools like lights, doors, and vents. These tools protect themselves from the hostile and intelligent robots that roam the environment. The idea behind Five Nights at Freddy’s is both appealing and terrifying. It has its own encyclopedia of lore and a group of loyal, enthusiastic, and passionate fans.
Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn was the first horror game in 2014 that wasn’t perfect. It broke the trend of a single protagonist facing non-human entities over and over again. In Until Dawn, eight friends return to the Washington family lodge on Blackwood Mountain exactly one year after Hannah and Beth Washington went missing and were thought to have died in a terrible accident.
As the characters get back in touch with old friends, a sadistic serial killer and the curse of the Wendigo come after them. There is blood, suspense, jump scares, and a story that keeps you interested. It has everything you could want in a scary Halloween games.
Silent Hill 2
In situations like this, you could name any Silent Hill game, but Silent Hill 2 stands out from the rest. Back in 2001, the cult-classic game for the Playstation 2 shook up the horror genre by daring to push the limits of immersive survival horror further than ever before.
James Sunderland is a widower who gets a letter from his dead wife. In it, she asks him to meet her in Silent Hill, which is both cute and creepy. Like the main characters James stops thinking logically and does what he’s told. Only to find all kinds of monsters living there. Even with the limited technology of the early 2000s, this Halloween games could still scare the living daylights out of any gamer.
Slender: The Eight Pages
This Halloween game is about the humanoid folklore figure called the “Slender Man,” who is known for taking kids away. In Slender: The Eight Pages, the main character is in a forest and tries to get eight hand-drawn notes.
Every time Slender-Man found a page, it gets harder to get away from Slender-Man. It’s a race against time that makes your blood run cold. Even though Slender might not be as scary as it used to be. Anyone who’s scare will find themselves looking twice at dark corners and shadowy shapes.
