GZ Picks: Top horror games to get you through October


With Friday the 13th upon us and Halloween coming up, we couldn't stop thinking of the games that have scared the crap out of us here at GameZone.

Now, horror games are a touchy subject. What someone considers scary is entirely subjective, so, we won't be listing out things like 'The Scariest Games of All Time' or top horror games. Heck, we won't even supply arguments on why we like these horror games (although you can totally ask us why!).

Instead, we have listed what we would each personally consider the best horror games. This means we are taking gameplay, story, and our overall feelings of the game into account. The games aren't listed in any particular order and you can really just consider it an idea of what horror games to look into if you're jonesing for some spooks.

Without further ado, here are the horror games that we consider the best!
