Games in the Horror Genre

Horror is a genre in fiction and movies that plays on the audience’s fears to give viewers and readers a thrill. These films and books use scary images, creepy sounds and music, and build up a disquieting atmosphere to make you feel uneasy. Horror often makes use of social fears, such as encountering truly evil people, becoming a victim of malevolent supernatural forces, or being left all by yourself in a dark and unknown place. The genre has its own iconic figures as well, from memorable classics such as Frankenstein’s creature, Count Dracula, and the Devil, to more modern monsters such as Pennywise the evil clown, killer doll Chucky, and the faceless Slenderman.

Survival Horror Games

One popular subgenre of horror in gaming is survival horror, an action-adventure format in which you have limited means to survive a terrible supernatural event. You might be trapped in a haunted mansion, for instance, or find yourself a lone survivor of the zombie Apocalypse. In our collection of zombie games, for instance, you have to gather food, medical supplies, and weapons while protecting your base from the undead.
