As the Halloween season ends, a whole slew of great new survival horror games are being released. The horror genre originates back to old apple computers but became more popular in the PlayStation days with games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Both series have gone on to spawn multiple sequels and set the standard for many survival horror games of today.
There are many survival horror games that went somewhat unknown and its these games that I feel do the genre best. One such game is Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Amnesia is a game where you as the protagonist must survive in a dark castle filled with strange creatures and spirits with no means to fight back.
A more popular game that has recently been released is a game called Five Nights at Freddys. This is a very different take on the genre where you play a security guard at an amusement center where the animatronic characters come to life at night and try to kill you.
Slender is a free game available for download where the main character is pursued by Slender man through a dark forest where 8 notes must be collected to finish the game.
