The Best Horror Games in 2023

Many of the best horror games have come to our favorite platform in the past few years. This makes sense since horror games have been on PC for a long time.

Horror Games

PC game is about the best graphics. The best horror games know, just like the best horror movies, that what you don't see can be just as scary as what you do.

Horror Games

Whether you like "body horror," "cosmic horror," "folk horror," or just "big men are chasing you with a chainsaw," PC gaming has a lot of scary games that should scare the hell out of you.

After decades of survival horror games, Resident Evil 2's remake did something that almost didn't seem possible: it made zombies scary again. The shambling horde is scary because it looks like it can't be stopped.

Resident Evil 2

If you like your scares in first-person, Resident Evil 7 is still a grisly delight, especially the creepy first half, and Resident Evil Village is like a gothic tribute to the best parts of the series. Don't pass up the underrated Resident Evil Revelations 2

Resident Evil 2

Silent Hill 2 is about a mentally damaged widower who fights his way through a foggy purgatory full of zombie-like creatures, dog-like creatures, and whatever Pyramid Head was. It was one of the first horror games to have a narrative that was subjective

Silent Hill 2

While we wait to see how the Silent Hill 2 remake turns out, retail copies of the original PC port of Silent Hill 2, which are very hard to find, can cost a lot. Still, this is probably the best way to play it now with mods and changes to textures and resolution.

The Evil Within 2 moves away from the pure survival horror of the first game in favor of a more open world full of grotesque and sometimes stomach-churning sights.

The Evil Within 2

This psychological horror game tries to scare you in ways other than just by jumping out at you. In fact, Shinji Mikami says that the "casual" setting is the best way to play The Evil Within 2.

After Left 4 Dead, many great four-player co-op shooters came out, like many zombies following the game's main characters. Some of these co-op shooters are great; you can find them on our list of best FPS games

Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead is always telling a story because of how it moves. Unique enemies have attacks that force you to work together during both quiet and swarming attacks. The survivors in Left 4 Dead 2

TV shows like Ghost Hunters helped make a kind of fake-science paranormal investigation popular, and Phasmophobia lets you and up to three friends become well-equipped paranormal investigators.

Phasmophobia

You can only carry a few tools at once, so you need your friends to help you carry the rest. Technical devices like EMF readers, flashlights, cameras, and magical tools like crucifixes may all be needed.

Phasmophobia

Like most scary movies, Man of Medan is best watched with friends. You play as a group of friends stuck on a ghost ship and have to explore and make quick decisions that could lead to their deaths.

Man of Medan

It's a tricky ship where you can't trust your eyes or your co-op partner, who might be seeing something completely different. It's a B-movie, but the jump scares are great; by the end, you'll be a nervous wreck.

The Walking Dead games from Telltale are from a time when "big choices" were a great way to sell video games. We talked a lot about moral dilemmas, choices, and the results of those choices

The Walking Dead

In its zombie apocalypse, you make many split-second decisions between two characters in danger. One of them will die, and the other will live until the budget for recording two sets of dialogue for every scene they're in runs out.

The Walking Dead

You'll find strange plot twists and glimpses into the scary unknown, all of which are supported by great voice acting. This isn't your typical first-person horror game, and while it sometimes forces you to do boring combat set pieces

Sylvio

You have 12 days to save a town suffering from disease, paranoia, mob justice, and strange things happening out of this world. The clock isn't just there for show. Things happen in real-time time,

Pathologic 2

Still the king of vampire games, Bloodlines was so sure of itself that it let you use your vampire powers however you wanted. You can pick NPCs off the street to eat them, move around as freely as you can in an immersive sim

Vampire: The Masquerade

The murderous artificial intelligence set the stage for GlaDOS. Still, what makes System Shock 2 such a memorable horror game is how the character grows and learns, how rewarding it is to explore

System Shock 2

The motion tracker can help you stay away from the xenomorph's grasp, but the alien can hear the sound and even see the screen's soft green light, so every time you look at the device, you're taking a risk.

Alien Isolation

Outlast 2 is a try-and-fail stealth game, so it might not be for everyone. However, it is one of the most exciting games because of its story. As a reporter looking for a missing woman in Arizona, your wife is taken by a crazy cult early on

Outlast 2

Dagon can be played on a regular screen, but it's best when played in VR. Harry Parry Lovecraft's work was often about the fear of size, which in his later work took the form of the endless black spaces between galaxies.
