Horror is a genre that many people enjoy. The exhilarating feeling that they experience because of fear makes them enjoy the genre. Well for all the fans of the horror genre and gaming, and for people who wish to venture into and experience the horror genre.
Today we have made a list of a few virtual reality (VR) games that will bring the horror alive that we feel you will enjoy. And with all that being said, let’s get right into it.
Narcosis is a game that could be termed as a psychological horror game. This game is set deep under the ocean. A natural calamity has destroyed an underwater facility and all the people along with it, except the player character. You are forced to roam the deep ocean floor between rocks, ruins of the facility and whatever lives in the water.
This game will give you a serious sense of isolation. This game is masterfully crafted with smooth gameplay, great cinematic visuals, and creepy audio to set the tone of the game.
This show really makes you feel uncomfortable with its torturously slow pace (it was intentional in case you were wondering) and the feeling of isolation and loneliness deep down on the ocean floor. The experience is world-class.
4. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
Until Dawn was a great game on its own, but when a VR version of it released under the title Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, people immediately wanted to try it out. This game is set in a carnival or amusement park. You will be on many rides and your objective is to take down hordes of different types of scary creatures including mankind’s scariest enemy – clowns.
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is a great shooting game that is fast-paced and delivers the scares pretty well. You will need to have sharp eyes and a good peripheral vision to spot the enemies before they get too close. Overall, Rush of Blood is a thrilling game and we highly suggest that you try it.
3. Alien: Isolation
The non-VR version of this game has received the title of the 2014 Game of the Year from PC Gamer. That should be pretty self-explanatory on why you should play this game.
