[FEAR Awards] 2014’s Best Multiplayer Horror Games!

Up until a couple years ago, multiplayer was most often a feature a developer would tack on to their game to help with sales. Nowadays, games like Dead Space 3 are finding creative ways to implement co-op, while the devs behind The Last of Us, Depth and Damned continue to innovate with their competitive offerings.

Multiplayer isn’t a bad word anymore, it’s becoming accepted by more and more horror fans.

I’ll always prefer to experience my spooky scary games solo, but I welcome this trend so long as developers continue invest time and creativity into finding inventive ways to incorporate multiplayer into their games.

Below are a half dozen horror games that we feel have done multiplayer right. Their modes are fully realized and only have a positive benefit on the game itself. We’ll leave it to you to decide which game did it best.

Greatest Gore | Scariest Game | Best Monster | Best Multiplayer | Most Original
Best DLC | Best New IP | Most Disappointing | Best Indie | Horror Game of the Year

For the unfamiliar, The FEAR Awards is your chance to pick the best and worst horror games of the year. I’ll reveal a new category and its respective nominees every day until Jan 10. From there, voting will remain open until Jan 15, followed by a reveal of all of the winners on Jan 16.
