Outlast is one of the best-looking and sounding survival horror games to date. The combination of dynamic lighting and fabulous soundscape keeps you on edge every second of the experience.

Players get to play as a night security guard in a pizza restaurant called Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza and have to defend themselves from the malfunctioning animatronic animal characters in the restaurant by tracking their movement through the building using security cameras.

The game is simple, but extremely scary, as you usually have no clue where the characters are until they are right in front of your face.

8) Welcome To The Game

7) Soma

Available on: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Classic Mac OS.

Rating: 10/10 Steam.

Enter the world of SOMA and face horrors buried deep beneath the ocean waves. It is an unsettling story about identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human. Delve through locked terminals and secret documents to uncover the truth behind the chaos. Players will face corrupted humans, twisted creatures, insane robots, and even an inscrutable omnipresent A.I. and must figure out how to get past them. The game is so frightening that creators added a “Safe Mode” just so people could actually progress through the game.

6) Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Available on: macOS, Linux, Microsoft Windows, Classic Mac OS.

Rating: 10/10 Steam.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent throws you into a creepified Prussian castle with no memory of who you are or how the hell you got there, where danger can lurk behind every corner. Your only means of defense are hiding, running, or using your wits.

The game had a sanity mechanic that increases the longer you look at horrifying images and stay in the darkness, creating illusions, attracting monsters, and even slowly killing the player themselves.

5) Devotion

Available on: Microsoft Windows.

Rating: 8.2/10 IGN.

Devotion is one of those games that will keep you thinking about it for weeks after you’ve beaten it. The game is short, concise, and well-paced from start to finish. It’s a story about a Taiwanese family succumbing to mental anguish and slowly breaking down over the course of its three-hour runtime.

The game has been unavailable to purchase after it was review-bombed on Steam, following reports that it contained some imagery that was mocking the president of a country. But the game is now back on sale, launching its own store featuring Devotion and its first game, Detention, both available in DRM-free formats.

4) Layers Of Fear

Available on: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Android, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Macintosh operating systems.

Rating: 9/10 Steam.

The game is basically a psychedelic horror that betrays the player’s sense of place and reality as the world itself is constantly shifting, and conspires against them, and mocks them in subtle ways. As you progress, the surroundings constantly change, forcing you to either adapt quickly or get consumed by the horrors of the game.

3) The Evil Within

Available on: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox 360, Xbox One.

Rating: 9/10 Steam.

This game is a survival horror game by the original creator of Resident Evil, The Evil Within is a frightening experience. Everything is terrifying almost all the time, and you rarely have enough bullets to feel anywhere close to safe.

Shinji Mikami, the creator of this game, became famous for the mind-blowing action in the game that still manages to terrify the player with tight settings, dense atmospheres, and spooky enemies.

2) Dead Space

Available on: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows.

Rating: 9/10 Steam.

This game got very popular back when it was released in 2008, and is often credited with helping jump-start the horror genre comeback of the late 2000s. The player must play as Isaac Clarke, an engineer who finds himself having to survive a mysterious alien scourge that has infected the ship and wiped out its crew.

The story is engaging and the action is up to the mark. The atmospheric qualities, as well as fast-pace and extreme violence, will get under your skin and make you jump.

1) Alien: Isolation

Available on: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Macintosh operating systems.

Rating: 9/10 Steam.

Alien: Isolation returned the series to its horror roots, functioning as something of a love letter to Ridley Scott’s original film, as it retains and builds upon the frightening concepts that film introduced.

The player is trapped on a ship while trying to uncover the mysterious circumstances of her mother’s disappearance and is soon forced to confront the same terrifying thing that separated them. Unlike Colonial Marines, there is only one alien in the game that will constantly learn and evolve to get at the player.
