This Generation’s 10 Greatest Horror Expansions!

Yes, Minecraft is a horror game. If you disagree, that’s fine, but I recommend you get over it, because it totally is.

Way back in 2010, Mojang turned it upside down with a substantial content update called the ‘Halloween update’ that added a bevy of new features, including pumpkins that can be turned into jack-o-lanterns and a biome generator. By far the biggest addition it brought with it was the Nether, an underworld you could craft a portal to travel to. It was inhabited by new enemies, like Pigmen — the hellish reincarnation of the many pigs slain in the overworld — and massive fireball spewing ghosts called Ghasts.

If you were playing Minecraft back then, this was a pretty big deal.

Since I’m only human, I may have missed something you feel deserves to be on this list. If that’s the case, feel free to let me know in the comments. But before you do that, I’d like to give out an honorable mention to Skyrim’s Dawnguard expansion. It’s not scary, but it did have some mild horror themes (vampires!).

Before you start ripping me apart, you should really tell me which of the above expansions you enjoyed the most!

    Great article, Adam! I’m so glad you included so many of my favorite games, like inFamous, Left 4 Dead and Alan Wake. And I’m with you on Resident Evil 5. That game is the reason I’ve been best friends with a guy across the ocean from me for 4 years! It may have taken us over 6 months to get through that *Ahem* “short” campaign, being that our schedules were hard to match up and, when we finally did, we would sometimes forget all about RE5 and dive into a game of Left 4 Dead, but it was an amazing game for making friends. 😀

    I loved the Call of the Dead (and I’ve never even played an actual Call of Duty campaign or co-op haha). But playing as Robert Englund, shredding zombies is so incredibly awesome!
