What are the best horror games on PC? Horror games tend to turn traditional action concepts on their heads and force you to run and hide from your enemies. Scary games leave you feeling vulnerable rather than empowered, and more than most, they are the gaming experiences that haunt you long after you play.

So while we have included a few obvious picks like Outlast and Amnesia, you can also expect to find games that use different tactics to raise your heartbeat and get your palms sweating. Don’t worry about this list getting out of date, either: we hop back into our lists regularly to add new scary games.
Remember, as Roosevelt once said, “we have nothing to fear but that bit in FEAR where you’re going up a ladder and Alma suddenly pops out and you are all like argh!” Here are the best horror games on PC you can play right now… if you dare.
