5 PC and console games that will fill you with terror
resident evil biohazard
Hard to miss this saga of horror launched for the first time in 1996. 20 years later, the series is still as successful, despite some disappointing episodes. Most games in the franchise take the same principle: overcome the onslaught of zombies and other nightmarish creatures while solving simple puzzles. Each episode of the series will see links be created between the characters become emblematic, highlighting a monstrous government conspiracy.
The latest episode has just brilliantly replenished the survival-horror concept launched by his elders by offering a terrifying first-person adventure. Resident Evil VII has also been adapted into VR for even more extreme horror sensations!
Here is another franchise that has made a name in recent years. Outlast propels you into a first-person game that will put your nerves to the test. Each opus will make you visit a charming place, such as a mental asylum or a city full of religious fanatics followers of the end of the world.
You will only have to defend yourself with a camera and your courage. And you will have to resist the horrors that will cross your path! Created by an independent studio, Outlast is a small nugget that any amateur of scary games must own. Note that the first episode and its DLC are compatible with Mac and GNU / Linux.
The zombie hunt has become a classic since the release of Resident Evil. If the saga Dead Rising is less focused on thrills, it is still very pleasant to play with its totally crazy side.
