Alien: Isolation The Evil Within Five Nights at Freddys The Last Door
Best Horror

You’ve sat through four Paranormal Activities and barely batted an eyelid and you watched Saw for breakfast while chowing down on your cornflakes, but these games came along and the living daylights are now scared from your very being. The best horror game teeters on the brink between intense and unplayable, waiting to push you into the abyss, challenging your sanity and testing your metal. Only the hardiest of gamers can play any of these alone, with the lights turned out and an immersive headset on.

Five Nights at Freddys
A veritable nightmare for anyone even mildly perturbed by freaky animatronic toys come to life, Five Nights At Freddy’s was a surprising indie cult hit this year that eschewed the ever-popular survival genre in favour of some freaky point-and-click adventure. You’re not paranoid … they really are out to get you.

The Last Door
Who knew pixels could be so utterly terrifying? The Last Door manages to create a genuinely creepy game with super-retro graphics and a Lovecraftian storyline. The fuzzy pixel style means you can never quite make out what it is you’re seeing, and there’s nothing more terrifying than letting your imagination fill in the blanks.
