Choosing Scary Games

Violence Level.

The very nature of scary games makes them conducive to high levels of violence. Think of the majority of recent horror movies. Many of them have involved a ton of human carnage. This trend can be found in scary games as well but luckily, if you’re more into sheer creepiness than gore, there are some titles which may be more suited to your tastes. Take Amnesia: The Dark Descent for example. The atmosphere will give you chills and the game play is more exploratory, with nary a gun or explosive in sight. Gamers attracted to a bit more action may value the Fear or Left4Dead series instead. It’s a good idea to check the ESRB rating before purchasing any game.

Price.

Just because a game is expensive that doesn’t mean it’s good. There are a number of free scary games you can play online that are just as good as some of the paid titles. It’s a good idea to try some of these first so you can get a feel for what you like and what you don’t like. If you’re a novice gamer, never go for the most expensive title first. These tend to be bigger, require more of your computer’s resources and have a higher learning curve.

Genre.

As with many things, not all scary games are made equal. There are Role Playing Games (RPG), First Person Shooters (FPS) and other types. Which one you buy will depend on your personal taste. One of the most popular genres of scary games is the point-and-click variant. These focus more on thrilling plot twists, intricate storylines and a foreboding atmosphere. However, an adrenaline junkie who likes blowing up things isn’t likely to appreciate a slower placed title that focuses on adventure.
