For many people there’s nothing better than getting home of an evening and realizing you’ve got nothing at all booked in, meaning you’ve got a whole evening completely free to dedicate to a new video game. Better still, you’ve got the house to yourself, so you can turn the lights down low and frighten yourself half to death! For some, there’s nothing better than a great horror game, so we’ve curated a list of the most brilliant horror releases for PC, that you’ll want to schedule in some scare time for immediately.
The Last Of Us
Here at Movies Games and Tech, we love the survival horror genre and The Last Of Us part one is a particular favorite because it’s available to play on PC. There have been several remakes of the original game, as well as sequels and remasters, however, sometimes it’s the oldies that truly are the goodies and we think this is the case with The Last Of Us. The first game was released an entire decade ago, but it still stands up as one of the best games in the genre. Of course, the game has also seen a surge in popularity lately thanks to the hit HBO series that allowed us all a glimpse into another side of the characters that we’d come to love from the video game.
For those who haven’t heard of the game before, and somehow missed the series too, this game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. A fungus has spread rapidly throughout the planet, turning people into zombie-like creatures who are intent on spreading the disease by biting and infecting their prey. You follow Ellie and Joel on their quest to survive in this harsh new landscape. Fans of shoot-em-up style games and large open world maps will love this one.
House Of Fun
If The Last Of Us all sounds a little bit too terrifying for you, but you still want a spooky something to get your teeth stuck into then the House of Fun slot by BetSoft might be a good choice for you. This game takes a slot format and is played on a 5×3 grid. It’s a classic style that will be immediately familiar to people who already play slot games and easy to pick up for those who don’t. The game begins with Paul and Jane’s car breaking down, meaning they just go and search for help in the nearest house. Unfortunately for the couple, the nearest house is the House of Fun. The backdrop to the slot game is a spooky house, situated in a garden dotted with gargoyles.
The spooky feel of the game continues into the symbols on the reels, where a terrifying man in a green suit is the highest-paying symbol. You’ll also find a haunted candelabra, a gruesome gargoyle, and plenty more besides. If you want to try out this game but don’t fancy wagering your own money, then VegasSlotsOnline gives players the option to play the full version for free for an unlimited time. This means you can get to know all of the features before diving in and placing your bets.
If you enjoy getting underneath the skin of the characters in horror movies, then this release from Supermassive Games and 2K is a must. It was only released last year, but already it has a cult-like following. The game sees you play as a group of teens, each having spent the summer camp working as counselors. Now, they have to make it through a night out in the forest with no idea what lurks in the darkness beyond. You’ll be spending a lot of time conversing with the others and trying to move stealthily through your environment, but each decision that you make can drastically change the fate of you and the others. We love that this game takes some horror tropes and turns them on their heads, whilst absolutely leaning into others so much so that it’s hilarious. If you’re into over-the-top gore, unexpected surprises and plenty
