best horror games on playstation

Halloween is just around the corner and for most people who wants to get in the mood for the festivities, the best horror games to play on their PlayStation console. I have rounded up the latest and best games that you can play to scare yourself silly. In this article, I’m only listing the ones that have recently come out in 2021.

In no particular order, here are the best horror games you can play on your PlayStation:

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water

What better way to get into the mood than playing a game fighting ghosts with nothing but a camera. This game may have already come out on the Wii U but this was recently announced as an enhanced version of the game. It is now available on all current gen platforms for players to enjoy. Embark on this journey to Mt. Hikami as you explore this eerie mountain along with three protagonists.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

If playing alone is not your cup of tea, The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes might be something you will be interested in. With a Movie Night mode where you can play with at least 4 of your friends or family, playing a horror game has not been this more enjoyable. Take up on this tale of 5 soldiers trapped in an ancient underground temple, as they fight their way out to survive the nightmare they were placed in.

Alan Wake Remastered

Alan Wake Remastered takes us back to this hit game. A world full of shadows that gets frightened at the sight of light. An interesting mechanic that’s reminiscent of the enemies in the Netflix series Locke and Key. If you want to test your courage in the dark, why not play this game with the lights off?

In Sound Mind

If you thought horror games are not scary, think again. In Sound Mind is one of those games where you think you can expect the jump scare but will prove you wrong in every corner. Delve into the minds of people who are battling their own demons and see these demons materialize in front of you. This game will definitely be a worthwile jumpscarefest experience.

The Medium

The Medium was recently released for the PlayStation 5 and I do believe it’s a game worth playing if you wanted to know what’s it like to be in the shoes of a Medium. Uncover items and hidden doorways as you channel the abilities of Marianne. Is it scarier than most games? No not really, but I do remember the parts where you have to hide from the monster to be the most exciting parts of the game.

Death Stranding: Director’s Cut

If you want to play a horror game but also want to enjoy beautiful sceneries, then Death Stranding is something that you might want to try. Although you’d probably end up walking 90% of the time in this game, encountering the BT’s is not something to laugh about. These entities can find you with just a sound so you’d have to be super quiet around them. Encounters with them can be super tense and had me at the edge of my seat all the time.

I’m sure there are more horror games out there that probably didn’t make this list but to each his own. Which horror games are you planning to play?
