The horror genre – no matter in games, books, or movies – stagnates. It’s hard to say whether it’s too difficult to scare us, who’ve seen so much blood, gore, and screamers, or the genre is to narrow. At GamesMojo we’re leaning towards the first point.

Nevertheless, we continue to believe that horror won’t die, and will finally transform into something unbelievably horrific.

While it’s still unclear, try something from our selection of the best horrors of the waning decade, then challenge yourself to sleep with the lights off.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent (2010)

This survival horror by Frictional Games, developers of the hardcore Penumbra series, made The Dark Descent more approachable for the general audience. At the same time, they used all the groundworks to make this horror more atmospheric.

The story is about a helpless young man from London, Daniel, who finds himself in a haunted castle in deep forests of Prussia. He can hardly remember who he is and knows that some supernatural presence is hunting him.

There’s no way to fight or escape, so you have to hide from beasts of darkness and try to keep sane. That’s hardly implementable, so eventually, you get involved in horrible death rituals.

GamesMojo team recommends Amnesia: The Dark Descent as a brilliantly scripted horror story with an incredibly oppressive atmosphere. Even though it’s 9 years old, chill down your spine is guaranteed.

Hello Neighbor (2017)

The first good thing about this Russian-American horror is multiplatform accessibility. You can play Hello Neighbor on your iOS, Android, Xbox One, PS4, PC, or Switch. The graphics are dramatically different, but the atmosphere is unswerving.

You play a young boy who notices that his seemingly ordinary neighbor hides something in his basement. The mission is to get inside, figure things out, and get out alive. Antagonist’s AI can set up the traps around the house, depending on your behavior patterns. That makes the entire thing totally unpredictable and scary as hell.

Alien: Isolation (2014)

Space setting is one of our favorites at GamesMojo.com. The Alien universe is rather overused, and we weren’t anticipating something impressive, but the release amazed us. The game features the original ‘70’s lo-fi concept of what the future would be like.

You play Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, who is forced to enter the Sevastopol station apart from her team. The entire craft’s communications are offline, and it’s controlled by facehuggers. You have to hide from aliens because there’s no chance at all to defeat them and walk along with the fascinating narrative.

Dying Light (2015)

Zombies are so great that we can’t fail to pay attention to every release in the zombie-apocalypse setting. Dying Light doesn’t scare you with screamers or exclusion.

Unlike the vast majority of zombie survivals, you’re not a tough hard-to-kill guy. You’re realistically vulnerable, but possess the art of parkour (well, some zombies do either).

You can explore the open-world city of Harran, inhabited with uncountable hordes of zombies, which are rather strong and scary. The real horror starts when you enter the city at night because of more severe mutants who get out of their covers. It’s impossible to avoid immersion and empathy to the protagonist.

Dead Space (2008, 2011, 2013)

The Dead Space had meager chances to see the green light because EA was convinced that a sci-fi horror shooter is a nonsense. The now-dead VIsceral Games dispelled doubts of the mother-company when Dead Space became one of the most recognized horrors ever.

All 3 chapters are true masterpieces of UI, UX, plot, and gameplay. You play Isaac Clark, a space engineer who faces a terrible alien virus. The plague turns all people on the station into necromorphs.

Those who survived, go mad on the grounds of religious deception or try to support alien manipulations. This horror is the most stylish and unusual amongst other titles of this top-list.
