It's Halloween and if you're not dressing up for some work party or taking your kids trick-or-treating, you might want to indulge in some
And since it's Halloween, it makes sense to choose a game that will scare the living bejeesus out of you. Good thing some of the scariest video games ever made are currently on sale!
We decided to create a nice convenient list for you.
Here are eight terrifying video games you can currently get for under $10.
1. Alien: Isolation
Alien: Isolation might be one of the most overlooked games of the last decade. Not only is it utterly, utterly terrifying, it's just a brilliantly well-designed experience and you should play it no matter what.
Instead of depending on scripted scares, Alien: Isolation pits you against a perfectly designed Alien that actually responds to your movements. Every experience is different. If you make too much noise, you're dead. If you don't pay attention to your surroundings, you're dead. Alien: Isolation is probably the best pure horror experience in video game history. It's currently available for $8.74 on Steam.
Oxenfree is more spooky than scary. It's unsettling. It's also an incredibly well-written tale about teenagers trapped on an time-bending, universe-shifting island. Play it! It's available for $4.99 on the Humble Store
3. Amnesia: The Dark Descent
A terrifying first-person experience where you must manage your sanity, Amnesia: The Dark Descent was popular among YouTubers, who would scare themselves to death playing it. It's routinely described as one of the best horror games ever made.
Outlast 2, like its predecessor, is an intense survival horror experience. It's packed with traditional scares and treads on some truly weird areas. It's about a religious cult, antichrists and hell and whatnot.
So yeah, you can kinda tell where this is going. Prepare yourself.
