BEST HORROR GAMES

Next month is October, and that means that the Halloween season is just about to shift into gear. While many will be watching horror movies and eating lots of candy, in this post we wanted to talk about a handful of great horror games that you should play next month. From FPS action to slow-burning survival horror, this list should scratch just about every horror itch you may have. Without further ado, we present the best spooky games to play this October.

Condemned: Criminal Origins

In the mid 2000’s the horror genre needed something to spice things up, and Condemned: Criminal Origins offered just that. The game is played in the first-person perspective, but rather than being a shooter it instead puts much more emphasis on melee combat. Players will be traversing rundown buildings, creepy school hallways and even a farm as they get up close and personal with numerous baddies as they hunt down the elusive Serial Killer X. The game was inspired by classic horror movies like Silence of the Lambs and Se7en, and it definitely lives up its inspirations.

Silent Hill 2

It says something that this game is still being talked about so long after its release, but this PS2 classic is still worth revisiting. Players take on the role of James Sunderland, who comes to Silent Hill after receiving a message from his wife (who is dead). What follows is some of the most bizarre and psychotic encounters you can imagine, which is all wrapped up in perhaps the most heart-wrenching horror story there is. Combat is slow and clunky, which is a quirk to some, but for many it only increases the tension when dealing with the horrors this game has to offer.

P.T.

It’s incredible to think that something that was simply a teaser for what would have been a full game has become so iconic, but here we are with P.T. Hideo Kojima had some great ideas for the Silent Hill series, with the devastatingly-canceled Silent Hills forever haunting the dreams of horror fans. The brief demo for the game had you walking through the halls of a house while being stalked by a creepy lady, and things just get more twisted from there. We won’t go into too much detail, but there may or may not be a fetus in a bathroom sink at one point. We’ll never know what the full game might have been like, but P.T. alone is a terrifying experience that you’ll never forget.

Resident Evil 7

The Resident Evil series was a sinking ship for many years, with Capcom electing to take more and more of an action-direction that got worse with each iteration. However, with Resident Evil 7 they finally decided that enough was enough, taking things back to its horror roots while taking plenty of influence from other big horror games of recent memory. It switched things to a first-person view for the first time in the main series’ history, and offered up a story and characters that were horrifying. Here’s to hoping that the company can keep the good times rolling with Resident Evil 8.

F.E.A.R.

Last on our list is one that is truly a genre-defining experience, and that is F.E.A.R. An FPS doesn’t seem like it would make for a particularly scary game, but Monolith Games crafted one of the most unsettling and scary games of all time. This is largely due to the ever-looming evil that is Alma, who stalks the player throughout the game and suddenly appears randomly. The game masterfully uses its own UI to constantly make you feel unsettled, with the UI going unstable whenever something strange is happening. However, these things may not be happening directly in front of you, and it’s that feeling of not wanting to look around to see what is going that makes the game as scary as it is. Throw in a twisted and enthralling story filled with great characters and you have one of the greatest horror games of all time.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!

In a development that is likely to delight console manufacturer Sony, the Italian national team seems to be caught up in a scandal involving PlayStation. Manager Luciano Spalletti has previously expressed his concerns about his players staying up late playing video games on their PS5s. This led to speculation that he may have implemented a ban on the gaming system during his squad’s Euro 2024 camp. However, when speaking to the media before the team’s upcoming match against Albania on Saturday, he made it clear that he is fine with his players relaxing with video games, as long as they don’t stay up too late playing.

“I have no qualms about any genre of games – we’ve set up a gaming room with two PlayStations,” he stated. It seems to be quite popular, and I’ve even tried it out myself. However, they have the ability to do so at the appropriate time of day. It is quite concerning that they are awake until such late hours of the night. It is important to prioritize a healthy sleep schedule. We must emphasize the importance of adopting a proper lifestyle while playing games. I never claimed that we couldn’t play PlayStation, which is both unfair and untrue. I mentioned that staying up until 3AM or 4AM is not something we can do – it’s a distinct situation.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, echoing his coach’s sentiments, revealed that the entire team finds pleasure in playing PS5, but only when it’s fitting. “After dinner, we spend time together in the games room, where we let loose and unwind. This has fostered a strong sense of camaraderie among us,” he observed. We share a few laughs and enjoy each other’s company for a couple of hours. There are absolutely no problems in that regard, the m

Italy’s disciplined gaming time seems to have paid off as they emerged victorious with a 2-1 win against Albania in their opener on Saturday. This impressive performance puts them joint-top of Group B after just one game. They will have to bring their A-game for their upcoming match, as they are set to take on Spain, their fierce rivals, in Gelsenkirchen on Thursday.

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.
