Virtual Reality is truly revolutionizing the way people get to experienced things. One of the best ways wherein VR is utilized is through entertainment systems. Today, we take a look at the best heart thumping horror games you can get in the market!
Horror, as a game genre, only experienced a spike in the early 2000s. This was primarily because the game graphics that used to permeate the market did not exactly equate a good gaming experience. With virtual reality being at the forefront of gaming now, the horror genre has a whole new world to offer gamers. Here are some of the best VR horror games available for play:
This offering is from Oculus Rift—one of the biggest names in Virtual Reality games—and it does an excellent job of putting players in a highly stressful environment. Players are teleported to what seems to be dungeon and have the unpleasant task of having to survive traps and creatures that you will have to hide from.
Why it’s good: The feeling of being chased is something that will never go out of style. When your survival is on the line, the VR environment does a wonderful job of making the experience come off as insanely real.
Emily Wants To Play
The life of a pizza delivery person seems to always end up so interesting—at least, it is when media gets a hold of it. Players get to see things from the point of view of a pizza man on the last leg of a regular day.
Why it’s good: If you are a fan of jump scares then this is one game that you will want in your collection. Released late last year, it has continued to be one of the most highly recommended games to play. It is also a fairly delightful game to see as a bystander as well.
The game is creepy and the audio track is pretty good in making things seem on edge. Despite being released last year, it continues to have relatively good ratings from critics and users alike.
Resident Evil VII
Is there anyone on this planet that does not know of the famous Resident Evil series? While it would not be anything out of the usual to expect zombies and genetically engineered creatures, this showcases a different turn in the game’s direction. It seems that they have decided to really put in the ‘resident evil’ in the game by providing a creepy and supernatural spin to this horror game.
Why it’s scary: This game is completely different from the others in its franchise. It provides a completely fresh take in an otherwise overly saturated series.
If you really think about it, horror is always going to be a popular medium. What always lacks is a relatively immersive and safe environment or means wherein horror lovers could indulge. With VR technology only getting better and better, horror lovers everywhere now have much to look forward to. What about you? What particular virtual reality horror game would want to play?
