We all know that horror video games are the best genre, and it looks like your favourite horror titles are going to get much spookier in the months to come.
Last year was a bumper year for horror gaming fans, with everything from virtual reality titles to casino slots games featuring some scary action. The good news is that it looks like there are plenty more chills in the pipeline.
While many people were keeping things cute and cuddly on their Nintendo Switch devices, true horror enthusiasts all know that last year’s best game was Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
This truly terrifying title earned some fantastic reviews through incredible audio soundscapes and gruesomely detailed graphics. And, while its virtual reality version left some people feeling a little nauseous, it definitely pointed to the future of horror gaming. It was also quite a turnaround for the Resident Evil franchise that had been plagued by many underwhelming releases.
Similarly, the Alien: Isolation game was another fantastic title from a much-loved franchise that used plenty of eerie atmosphere and jump scares to terrify a whole new generation of gamers.
Of course, not all horror titles had to be so nightmarish. Nintendo Switch users got to enjoy Resident Evil: Revelations that managed to be creepy despite the very unscary aesthetics of the handheld device.
And even some of the slots games, like Dracula at the InterCasino website, managed to be pretty spooky despite giving users some less than terrifying payouts.
Looking back at the best horror games throughout the history of gaming shows no lack of variety. From the near-perfect survival horror The Last of Us, to the creepy first-person chills of the Slender Man game, to the killer robots of Five Nights at Freddy’s, it seems that developers love creating games that terrify us.
So what horror titles can we look forward to in the upcoming months?
SIE Bend Studios are set to give us the promising PS4 zombie-survival horror title, Days Gone, at some point in 2018.
So, whether you are experiencing sci-fi terror on Mars with Moons of Madness, or you’re stepping back into the Until Dawn universe with Unreal’s The Inpatient, it looks like 2018 will be a bumper year for horror games.
With plenty more spooky titles appearing on the InterCasino gaming website, as well as a new ‘Walking Dead’ game, and the hugely promising ‘Vampyr’ title, we can all look forward to plenty of chilling gaming moments in the coming months.
