TOP 10 Xbox One Horror Games


10. Call of Cthulhu


Bringing the terrifying world of H.P. Lovecraft to life, this investigative RPG puts you in the shoes of private investigator Edward Pierce as you attempt to uncover the truth behind a grisly murder. Thanks to the game’s unique sanity and psychosis crisis mechanics, Edward must also deal with horrifying visions and walking nightmares, making the game a truly frightening experience.


9. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan


Playing out like an interactive film, Man of Medan puts you in control of a horrific narrative journey where every choice you make has a consequence. The story revolves around a group of divers searching for a WWII plane wreck and encountering a ghost ship where nightmares become reality, and as all characters in the game can live or die based on your decisions, this is a truly intense and often horrifying game.


8. The Evil Within 2


This solid sequel expands the scope of the series which ratchets up the tension considerably, resulting in an often-harrowing gaming experience. While the first game played like a Resident Evil wannabe, The Evil Within 2 finds its own grisly voice as you embark on a hellish journey to rescue your daughter, with large maps offering the freedom to explore and proceed how you want. This is a thrilling horror game and one that is definitely worth your time if you’re brave enough.


7. Dead by Daylight


This online-only multiplayer horror game is a truly innovative and immersive experience. With one of the finest atmospheres in horror gaming, Dead by Daylight puts you in the shoes of either a maniacal slasher or one of four survivors. The rules are simple – if you draw the slasher, you kill. If you draw a survivor, you must survive. A truly thrilling game that absolutely nails the horror movie atmosphere, more so than any other game on this list.


6. Outlast Trinity


The critically-acclaimed Outlast franchise, available now on disc as a complete package containing all 3 games, is surely one of the most frightening gaming series out there. These psychological survival games will push you to your limits of sanity due to an absolutely horrifying atmosphere that will provide you with nightmare fuel for days. To say any more will spoil their power – go in blind if you feel like you’re ready for one of the scariest experiences in gaming.


5. Dying Light: The Following


With The Following, Dying Light is bigger, better and scarier than ever before. This enhanced version of the acclaimed survival horror puts you in the shoes of undercover agent Kyle Crane as you are sent to infiltrate a quarantine zone overrun with the undead. A fluid parkour system means you can free-run the entire map, making those chases all the more exciting, while well-executed gunplay means laying waste to the hordes is deeply satisfying.


4. Alien: Isolation


Alien: Isolation puts the player into an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger, as you must navigate a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space while being stalked by a staggeringly intelligent and dynamic Alien who responds to your every move to hunt you down. Every step you take has consequences, making this an incredibly intense experience – and a truly horrifying one when you are caught.


3. Little Nightmares


This disturbingly charming puzzle platformer sends the player on a grim adventure into a stunningly designed world where you must confront your childhood fears. Hypnotising the player with ever-present suspense, Little Nightmares is an experience like no other that will have you on edge throughout, with art design and imagery that will linger in the dark recesses of your mind for many months to come. Hauntingly beautiful, and totally unmissable.


2. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard


This remaster of the cult classic kart racer has managed to retain all of the charm and fun of the original CTR, making it a great game for local co-op or tearing up the leaderboards online. But this isn’t just cheap nostalgia bait, and developers Beenox has added more than a graphical update. Brand new unlockable kart parts, character skins and customisation items means there’s even more incentive to be the fastest on the track.


1. Resident Evil 2


Based on the original PlayStation release from 1998, this updated version of Resident Evil 2 completely rebuilds the game from the ground up. Breathtakingly photorealistic visuals and stunning lighting create an intense, atmospheric and cinematic experience that makes the scares all the more impactful. This is how you do a re-release, and reminds us why the Resident Evil franchise is absolutely the leader of the pack in the horror genre.
