[FEAR Awards] The Best Multiplayer Horror Game Of 2013!

FEAR

The horror genre has seen a gradual increase in games that offer some sort of multiplayer component this past year. That probably sounds like a bad thing, since it often means bad things for the player who would prefer a polished single-player campaign over a tacked on multiplayer. For 2013, it was actually a good thing.

I noticed a trend as I was sifting through last year’s offering, and that was a noticeable jump in titles that brought with them thoughtfully crafted multiplayer modes, rather than hastily slapped together features that had the sole purpose of adding one more thing to the list of features on the back of the box.

That’s a good sign. Now let’s thank these developers by voting on their games!

    Ehhhh, DayZ probably shouldn’t be on the list being in Alpha and all but it probably won’t matter anyway: The Last of Us was hands-down the best.

      I made the early decision that if a developer is charging for their game’s alpha, it’s eligible for a nomination. And I never actually played the multiplayer in The Last of Us, but I heard it’s good.

    Ahhh, I see. Then Dayz deserves to be on here and should probably win then. Player encounters are nerve-racking and that’s a good thing.
