Horror games in VR is an extremely difficult challenge to undergo. It gets difficult when you are actually in the horror game which is exactly why we love the VR world because it takes you inside the game letting you have first-hand experiences but when it comes to a horror game, I guess I shall pass on that opportunity(LOL). Playing a horror game on the PlayStation is crazy enough but in VR is taking the creeps to yet another level!
Even though we know for sure we can pee in our pants, VR horror games are one of the best experiences and having the VR aspect added to a horror game takes it to another level! Without wasting any time let’s see some of the scariest horror games that we can play on the Vive.Without wasting any time let’s see some of the scariest horror games that we can play on the Vive.
1 The Brookhaven Experiment
The Brookhaven experiment is one of the most amazing games which will take you to the environment of The walking dead and is more like a narrative game making it overall amazing gaming experience. The storytelling really gets you excited and thrilled along with the post-apocalypse situation which is quite scary.
One of the scariest horror games that one could play on the HTC Vive, the Brookhaven Experiment is one of the best games where you need to keep shooting all the creepy and disgusting monsters that come your way. This game is definitely going to be one of the best horror games we have in VR.
2. A Chair in a Room
A chair in a room is one of the most engaging VR horror games you might ever find. In this intense game, you would find yourself solving puzzles and try collecting as many clues as possible to unravel the mystery around the hospital in which you have been stranded. It is one of the most amazing VR horror games and is extremely engaging.
The narrative is broken down into 6 chapters where each of them have around 30 minutes of gameplay giving you enough time to calm down after each chapter, LOL. This game only gets better in VR and it is a mix of horror and art of puzzle solving which will get you through most of the situations.
3. Emily wants to Play
This is a narrative gameplay where you are a pizza delivery boy and encounter an odd house where you have one of your pizza deliveries. Due to the heavy rains, you decide to step inside the house for a moment soon to realize that it was one of the biggest mistakes you could have ever done.
As you enter the house the door behind you closes and the nightmare begins. You need to get out of the house and the game begins. There are a few creepy dolls and a girl named Emily who roams in the house, you need to stay away from her and try not to get locked in the same room else this could be the last pizza you would ever deliver.
HordeZ is a survival shooting game where you are trying to survive after a zombie apocalypse. This is a simple game and not packed with a bunch load of narratives. You have more of the shooting and fights with the zombies and other disgusting monsters.
The graphics in VR for this game is extremely amazing and you might like the way the developers of the game have paid attention to detailing. The game keeps you engaged and even if it isn’t as scary as the other narrative games, it is very interesting and a must try for all the Vive owners.
5. Dead Secret
This is a mystery game where you try to understand how a professor gets killed in house but you realize soon you are the next victim. This game involves lots of puzzle solving and connecting the dots in order to unravel the mystery behind the death of the professor.
The game is extremely immersive and engaging, you would end up spending hours on the game making it engaging and addictive. With an amazing storyline and the best graphics, one could possibly ask for, this game certainly had to make on the list.
6. Marlene Act 1 Betwixt
Coming back to the shit scary titles where you almost pee your pants, Marlene Act is one of them. In this game, you are in a cottage trying to figure out what happened to your estranged sisters only to find that you are being followed by a strange unknown figure all the time.
The narrative gets creepy and quite scary after a while, and it is one of the best narrative games on the list. This game is worth trying, however, it may not be the best horror game but would always be one of the best horror games one could ask for.
7. Albino Lullaby
This game cannot be termed as a horror game but is definitely creepy and a little mysterious. The narrative gets pretty interesting where you are supposed to collect items and discover a few things about different characters. It is like a pure narrative game where initially you might feel a scared but then the fear slowly fades away due to your involvement in the narrative.
The game has amazing graphics and detailing, the entire experience is very immersive in the VR and the way the story unfolds really keeps you engaged throughout the game. I played the game twice and really liked it since it wasn’t as scary as the others on the list!
Well, this game is not exactly the kind of horror game where you are surrounded by ghosts and zombies and are petrified to death by a few jump scares. This game triggers all the natural fears that one can possibly have. The game is about geometric shapes and each of them has different features which are pretty unsettling.
The levels on this game are pretty damn hard and things get shit freaky after a while. It equals to the fear of falling from heights with scary sound effects and trust me things can get really disturbing because of the VR component.
