I want to know what your most anticipated horror game(s) is right now. And please, take your time. This is a safe place for you to sift through the enormous selection of titles that pepper the still mostly hazy 2016-2017 release schedule. I’ll even help you make a decision that represents you as an individual, because you’re not a comment on a website, you’re a whole bunch of wet and squishy stuff packed inside a person-shaped skin bag that sometimes enjoys exploring virtual worlds inhabited by monsters and an assortment of other horrors.
This is a wildly open-ended question, so let’s start with what’s coming up within the next few months. We have the finale of The Walking Dead: Michonne next week, as well as the console release of The Park (PS4, XBO) and Neverending Nightmares (PS4) in the first week of May. Then we have an avalanche of demons in the new Doom, followed by a stampede of zombies in the remastered Dead Island Definitive Collection to cap off the month. We might also get Narcosis.
June starts strong with Insomniac’s Oculus Rift exclusive Lovecraftian horror game Edge of Nowhere — one of many virtual reality horror games we’re looking forward to right now — and after that, Umbrella Corps and PAMELA.
In the more distant future that’s still 2016, we have the third season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Allison Road, Visage, Friday the 13th: The Game, Last Year, Outlast II, Perception, Inner Chains, Dead by Daylight, The Hum: Abductions, and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, among so many others.
That’s hardly everything, but it should give you an idea of the horrors to come.
So, which horror game(s) are you most looking forward to?
