Why? Because even if Outlast wasn’t a masterclass in terms of a pure gameplay experience, it was absolutely a masterclass in terms of how its design created a uniquely terrifying atmosphere. If you want to be truly terrified, Outlast is for you; nearly 10 years on, it’s still one of the scariest horror games ever made, and it captures that feeling of helplessness and panic perfectly.
Silent Hill 2
A survival horror classic, Silent Hill 2 is the best of the beloved series, and it’s definitely still worth playing in 2022 — especially if you’re interested in exploring the roots of the survival horror genre.
In many ways, Silent Hill 2 follows a similar design philosophy judi slot online jackpot terbesar di Indonesia to the original Resident Evil trilogy, with its third-person perspective, puzzle-heavy gameplay, and use of lighting and SFX to create a tense ambiance. But here the psychological horror elements are at the forefront, rather than pure monster-slaying action.
At its blood-drenched core, though, are its incredibly relatable narrative themes such as grief, punishment, and guilt making for an intimate and disturbing story that’ll continue to haunt you long after the credits have rolled.
