The final frontier isn’t just filled with unexplored planets and shining stars, at least not according to video games. Some of the best horror games choose the void of space to stage their adventures. Here are 15 games that show off what’s so frightening about being stranded among the stars.

Note: This list is in random order and also consists of unreleased games which are expected to be pretty good when they hit the market.

 Alien Isolation

In space, no one can hear you scream. This was the tag line for the original alien movie, and it stands true for the amazing Alien Isolation. What it does better than the Alien game before it, is that it perfectly captures the primal predatory nature of the Xenomorph. The Xenomorph slinks through the shadows, dropping from the vents and plunging its tail into the player. You never feel safe when you know that it could be anywhere at any moment. The game knows exactly what it means to exist in the Aliens universe and treats its source material with an immense amount of respect. The sense of dread as you sneak through the desolate ship with the entirety of space to your back can’t be beat.
