5 Awesome Horror Games You’ve Probably Never Played

Alone in the Dark: The Nightmare


You’d be forgiven if you somehow managed to miss Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare, developer Darkworks’ chilling entry in Infogrames’ pioneering survival horror franchise. While the title was generally well received by critics, the game had the misfortune of launching in the midst of the gaming landscape changing. As the 32-bit era gave way to sixth generation of consoles this exceptional Lovecraftian descent into horror was quickly forgotten. It’s a shame too, because it’s arguably the best game in the long-running horror franchise. With haunting pre-rendered environments, superb lighting, and a nightmarish cast of demonic enemies just waiting to disembowel you, this atmospheric trek through a haunted mansion is sure to shave off a few years of your life with solid scares and soul-crushing atmosphere.
