Ever wondered what it’s like to be in a scary movie? What would it be like to play as a character who would fight demons, zombies, monsters, ghosts, and lethal viruses? The excitement, the adrenaline rushing through your bloodstream, the fear, the anxiety, and finally the joy of defeating the bad guy. One doesn’t have to be a hero to do all this. In fact, all this can be experienced through the comfort of one’s own living room. Games allow for a player to become a part of the character’s story! So for all those who want to experience the thrill of the horror genre first hand here are three online games that you can play for free to feed the gore-hungry self.
1) Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
Basic concept was given by Capcom and later released for the PlayStation video game console in 1999. It is the continuation of the Resident Evil video game series. The plot of the game revolves around Jill Valentine and her pursuit to escape from a city that has been infected with a biological weapon secretly developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella. It is a game designed for constant battling with enemies, and the monstrous nemesis that keeps the player on his/her toes. All of the usual screams, zombie grunts and groans, and various environmental sound effects are present in the game to get the player’s teeth clattering with fear. It is indeed a treat for horror games fans!
Earning a XYZZY Award winner for Best Setting and a nomination for Best game, Anchorhead is a game that is terrifying as it is not the traditional horror or survival horror game. Anchorhead gameplay needs you to be a player who can fully gel in a written story, rather than someone who needs visual or auditory stimulation. Like a good horror novel, Anchorhead creates anxiety that sends shivers down the spine of the player.
3) Eyes: The Horror game
Eyes is a first-person view survival horror game that is most likely to have the layer screaming in his seat. The goal of the game is to retrieve money bags from an old abandoned and haunted mansion. The audio and visual graphics allow for a petrifying and rich experience with a lasting impact. The creepy atmosphere of this game is perfect for horror game fans!
