It’s Friday the 13th – time to scare yourself silly. Here are some horror games worth checking out. 

Until Dawn

Until Dawn is a point-and-click horror title for the PS4 that challenges you to keep as many of your teenage retreat-goers alive as possible. An added bonus for this one is Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, a VR title that launched with PS VR last year.

Resident Evil Origins Collection

Take it back to the old school before the launch of Resident Evil VII Biohazard with Resident Evil Origins – Raccoon City is the place to be this Friday night. Alternatively, check out one of the many movies.

Here They Lie

Another VR title, Here They Lie doesn’t sound menacing, but it sure as hell is. In its own  words, it’s a “psychological horror”, so hope you’re keen on losing your mind.

Five Nights At Freddy’s

If you haven’t seen the Markiplier videos, chances are you might not actually know what Five Nights At Freddy’s is. Night gathers and your watch begins – you are tasked with watching Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza and its animatronic costumes after dark – did we mention the costumes develop a life of their own? Good luck.


One of the scariest games on the market. It’s your typical asylum/camera footage job, but so well done that you won’t be able to sleep for a while after. Enjoy getting through the trailer.

Slender: The Eight Pages

Going grocery shopping for mum has never been so terrifying. You’ve gotta trawl around a forest with that big , scary, Vitamin D-deficient guy lurking behind you. No biggie. Milk, bread, eggs, pain, suffering.
