It has always been fun for people who like horror to be able to interact with things in video games, and game developers have been more than happy to let them do that! From their twisted minds, some of the most disturbing and dark gameplay experiences ever thought up have been made. Whether it was in a video game or not, these experiences have been made.
Over the years, the PlayStation 3 had a lot of great horror games, from sequels to well-known franchises to new games that were scary all on their own. Play some of these scary games on your PS3 if you still have one.
Silent Hill: Homecoming (71)
Metacritic reviews for Silent Hill: Homecoming were a mixed bag when compared to previous games in the series, but the game still had a lot of things that made it one of the best horror games on the PlayStation 3.
The game’s clever use of subconscious thought to make terrifying monsters is one of its main selling points, as is the main character’s guilt as the player explores past traumas and how they fit into the world of Silent Hill.
Siren: Blood Curse (78)
The Japanese have a good track record when it comes to making creepy horror games, and Siren: Blood Curse is no different. Cult favourite: This remake of the PS2 game blends elements from its sequel to make a riveting and scary survival horror game.
They work well together because the game is very dark. It has a lot of de-saturated colours, film grit, and dark sound effects.
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (79)
The sequel to the seminal FPS horror classic F.E.A.R. wasn’t as well received as its predecessor, but it still held up most of the core gameplay elements that fans loved so much. It also took the storyline into much deeper and darker psychological territory.
Principal antagonist Alma returns to wreak havoc on those she believed wronged her, but her enthusiastic focus on the main character soon leads to some disturbing scenes that are as unsettling as they are effective.
The Darkness (80)
Play as Jackie Estacado, a mob hit-man who turns into a one-man wrecking crew after discovering that a demonic entity has been living in his bloodline for generations. The game is called The Darkness and is based on the comic book of the same name.
The Darkness is very different from other horror games for the PlayStation 3. In this game, the player takes on the role of the monster, which means they can rain down demonic destruction on enemies, eat their hearts, and make the streets red with blood.
Condemned 2: Bloodshot (82)
Condemned 2 brought more action elements to the franchise in comparison to its tightly-wound psychological predecessor, but the horror was still very much present. The story picks up where the original left off, with Metro City’s people going crazy.
The player must rely on a tough combat system to stay alive. They must use melee weapons until they can get guns. In this movie, there’s a lot of violence, but it’s the Crazies-style psychological horror that makes the movie scary for people.
Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut (84)
If you like survival horror and 2D games, this retro-styled indie game is for you. It got an 84 from Metacritic for that. It makes the player feel more afraid and nervous by making them follow strict rules in order to stay alive.
People hide in the shadows to avoid monsters, use very little ammo in battle, and aren’t able to take a break because they want to keep the player as vulnerable as possible. It also has hallucinations that can be changed by a lot of different things, which makes it even scarier.
Resident Evil 4 HD (84)
In 2005, Resident Evil 4 first hit the Gamecube. After that, Capcom started porting the game to almost every platform out there. The iconic game hasn’t lost any of its terrifying power over the years, with fans still praising how it changed the way the series worked.
Resident Evil 4 HD is known for changing the zombie movie feel of the first four main RE games for a more Gothic horror aesthetic and a different type of undead enemy. This keeps some of the series’ roots but adds new life to the storyline.
Dead Space (88)
Dead Space changed the way people think about sci-fi horror. It used innovative combat and a scary atmosphere to sell its premise. In fact, the combat was worth the highest praise because it added more suspense to the game.
Industrial cutting tools and military equipment were used to cut down the ghastly monsters in the game. The player had to use precision attacks to cut down their legs, arms, and heads. If they didn’t, they were swarmed and killed in the most horrible of ways.
Resident Evil: Revelations
This is a great third-person shooter game that combines horror, survival, and action. Resident Evil: Revelations is a lot like Alan Wake, but it’s a lot better. There are two people in the game who work for the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) to stop a Bioterrorist Organization called II Veltro from putting people at risk. Jessica Sherawat is the main character in this game. You have to play as her and go to the floating city of Terragrigia, where you have to kill off genetically modified creatures and mutants called Bio Organic Weapons BOWs. Resident Evil: Revelations lets you use sophisticated weapons to fight off hardcore enemies, fight in melee and long-distance battles, and complete tasks. It also lets you enjoy an amazingly addictive and quite immersive game experience. Resident Evil: Revelations is a great mix of Action-Adventure, Horror-Survival, and Shooting aesthetics. It has a beautiful setting, eye-catching graphics, a well-written storyline, and a fun game-play.
If you like FPS games, Doom 3 is a great one. It will put you in the most thrilling, scary, and difficult game-play ever. Survival and FPS fans will love this game, which tells the story of a demonic invasion at the Union Aerospace Corporation’s Mars Research and Development Center. The attack forced you into a corner, and now your only goal is to live and get out of the facility. But it’s not as simple as it looks. You’ll need to be brave, pick up weapons, and go face the devil and his minions. You have to shoot and kill them in order to live. If they don’t, they’ll have no shame in killing you. You can use Grenades, guns, Chainsaws, knives, and so on as your main weapons and you must live. Doom 3 has a great story, cool graphics, great gameplay, and a lot of different enemies, as well as a scary and challenging environment.
