Buckle up, gamers. Things are about to get terrifying.

Psychological Horror to Mess With Your Mind

1. Returnal

Prepare to question everything you know about reality as you’re trapped in a brutal, alien-infested time loop. Returnal isn’t just about combat; it’s about atmosphere. The haunting soundscapes, the chilling environments, and the constant threat of death create an experience that burrows deep into your psyche.

2. The Medium

What’s scarier than one reality? Try two. In The Medium, you play as Marianne, a medium who travels between the real world and the spirit world. Solving puzzles and evading terrifying entities in two separate dimensions will make you question which reality is truly the more horrifying one.

Survival Horror to Test Your Courage

3. Resident Evil Village

The iconic Resident Evil series is back and scarier than ever. Village throws you into a gothic nightmare filled with werewolves, vampires, and other horrifying creatures. Prepare for intense combat, challenging puzzles, and Lady Dimitrescu – a villain so tall and imposing she’ll haunt your nightmares.

4. Outlast 2

Found footage horror meets survival gameplay in Outlast 2. You’ll be running, hiding, and praying you don’t get caught by the deranged cultists who roam the Arizona desert. Just a heads-up: this one is not for the faint of heart (or stomach).

Jump Scare Horror for Quick Thrills

5. Visage

Inspired by the likes of P.T. and Silent Hill, Visage is a psychological horror masterpiece that relies on atmosphere and jump scares to keep you on edge. The meticulously crafted environments and chilling sound design are almost too real for comfort.

6. The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

If you prefer your horror in bite-sized chunks, the Dark Pictures Anthology has you covered. House of Ashes puts you in the middle of an Iraqi desert, trapped in an ancient Sumerian temple with something sinister lurking in the shadows. Every choice you make can mean life or death for you and your team.

Indie Horror Games That Pack a Punch

7. Bendy and the Ink Machine

Don’t let the cartoon aesthetic fool you, Bendy and the Ink Machine is a surprisingly disturbing descent into a nightmarish cartoon studio. Solving puzzles, battling ink creatures, and uncovering the dark secrets of the studio will leave you with chills long after you finish playing.

8. Little Nightmares II

This puzzle-platformer may look cute, but the world of Little Nightmares II is filled with grotesque creatures and disturbing imagery. You’ll need to use your wits and bravery to survive this horrifying adventure.

Classics Remastered for a New Generation

9. Demon’s Souls

The game that started it all. Demon’s Souls on PS5 is a breathtaking remake of the classic souls-like experience. Prepare for brutal difficulty, cryptic storytelling, and terrifying enemies that will make you scream in both frustration and fear.

10. Dead Space

This sci-fi horror classic has been given new life on the PS5 with stunning visuals and immersive 3D audio. Get ready to dismember some terrifying necromorphs aboard the USG Ishimura – just try not to throw your controller across the room in the process.
