There are games which toss various monsters at the player, forcing one to gun them down with impunity. However, other titles deliver their terror in a more nuanced way. Yes, they may still feature blood and gore but these games are more intent on messing with your head in the most twisted way possible. Let’s take a look at the 15 best psychological horror games.
Outlast 2 may have seen a tremendous bump in visuals but the original Outlast is arguably scarier. There are so many things going wrong in Mount Massive Asylum from mentally ill inmates to grotesque oddities like Chris Walker constantly stalking you. The game is focused on stealth and fleeing from foes with the camera’s night vision offering an edge in the dark (though batteries are needed to recharge). From pure insanity to outright grotesque violence, Outlast is an experience that will stay with you long after it ends.
