What are the Scariest VR Games?
When you play a normal horror game, usually it is an intense experience, especially if there are jump scares involved, but that is nothing than what is felt when you play a scary game with a Virtual Reality Headset. Suddenly you are no longer a passive participant outside of the screen, you are now the protagonist. With Virtual Reality, horror games can become nightmares that are prone to giving you heart palpitations. Below you will find some of the scariest VR games that only become worse with VR.
Undoubtedly, the reasons why horror games leave so much of an impact is because of how the plots can leave us burning with questions and shock at the twists. This is where the glory of the game Wilson’s Heart comes in. Built for the Oculus Rift, you wake up in a 1940’s hospital only to find that your heart has been replaced with a strange device. As you try to escape, you are left at the mercy of those who wander the corridors. Not only does this game have terrifying characters and a freakish atmosphere, but the story is immersive and deep, the game being only heightened by its gorgeous graphics. It is certainly worth a play.
A Chair in A Room
When you think of the horrors of virtual reality, you certainly would not think of a game about a chair inside of a room. However, looks can be deceiving and this game is certainly one for that. It handles the themes of abuse, drug addiction and mental delirium. You can only find answers to a potential investigation of a murder by going into your own psyche to explore your thoughts and feelings. The publishers, Wolf & Wood Interactive LTD, have certainly made a game that will stick with you for days to come.
Here They Lie
On the PlayStation VR, Here They Lie invites you to take a trip into a horrifying world which you cannot escape. Trapped in a city filled with strange and terrifying creatures, you will be stalked and will have to wrestle with the moral choices of life in this town in order to uncover the mystery of the workmen in yellow. This game is truly a treat for those who enjoy a little psychological horror, as well as dramatic and dark storylines.
Don’t Let Go!
Simple game play can be just as effective as a strong plot. Enter Don’t Let Go!, a game that forces you to confront your biggest fears without letting go of your keyboard or game controller. The way to win? Sit still and watch as ghouls, scorpions and spiders drop onto you. Keep calm and it will be over before you know it.
