[FEAR Awards] The Worst Horror Games of 2014!

Last year left us with a bunch of great horror games, and like every year before it, some steamy turds were dropped on us as well. A couple of the most abysmal titles were about on par with the worst of 2013, and that’s a serious accomplishment for a year that vomited up both Aliens: Colonial Marines and The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.

In my opinion, there are a few games on the list below that are worthy of this title, but I’ll leave it to your clicker finger to select the year’s worst offender.

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.

    Am I one of the only ones who really liked Daylight? The first time I played I was utterly terrified, screaming a lot. I remember just starting, then the thing with the lopsided head starts running at me, I run in a room and shut the door, back into a corner and watch the door handle move about, after 1 minute I hear a noise inside, from the corner…. So scary.

      I enjoyed it too. It wasn’t exactly what i expected but was fun. Bad is that Zombie Studios is closing after 20 years of work…

      I enjoyed it as well, it scared the shit out of me and my family, I agree it wasn’t very well put together but it was a fun game for $5.

      That was 2012 🙂 Yea, it’s bad enough that its effects still ring through 2014, but…

    F.E.A.R. Online wins. Second position: Haunted House. And third position… The Evil Within!!!

      Just curious about what you didn’t like about The Evil Within. For me, it just isn’t scary. Its kinda cheesy!

      • Brodequin

        The only HORROR in this game is the main character physical condition: after five seconds of
        running he is almost dying. My 85 years old grandpa can run times longer
        and faster hehe…

        I didn’t like it because of tons of bugs, letterboxing, 30 FPS cap, clunky controlls… Too many Resident Evil 4(which i don’t like) similarities…
