What’s Your Favorite Horror Game of 2015 (So Far)?

I sincerely hope that what’s left of this year is as generous to us as the last five months have been, because I can’t remember what I did before 2015 and its seemingly endless supply of horror games came into my life. Kholat is the only high profile release this month and unless E3 has something special for July-August, this summer is likely going to be just as barren as it usually is.

This fall has only recently started to come into focus as games like Until Dawn (Aug 25) and SOMA (Sep 22) have been given release dates. E3 has been a reliable source for that sort of thing in the past, so expect that number to grow in the coming weeks. Technically, the event runs from the 16-18, but the pre-E3 conferences always bring the biggest announcements so let’s be safe and say it begins with Bethesda’s media briefing on the 14th.

A lot is going to happen this month, so before E3 distracts all of us with news of what’s to come, I want to know what your favorite horror game of 2015 has been so far. You can pick yours from the list below. For the purposes of keeping things manageable, I’ve left out DLC and episodic games that haven’t fully released yet.

With so many new games to choose from, choosing a favorite might not come easily. I’ve narrowed down my favorites to Bloodborne, Dying Light and the Resident Evil remaster, and that’s as far as I’ve gotten. I had the most fun playing Dying Light with friends, but the Resident Evil remake is one of my all-time favs and its remaster was so ridiculously good. Then there’s Bloodborne, which is currently the only game this year to earn our Editor’s Choice badge. Hmmm.

While I think about it, here’s a list of what we’ve reviewed this year. Maybe it’ll help.

    For a person who plays video games nightly and owns a huge collection.. I’ve only heard about half of these. I wouldn’t even consider Wolfenstein a horror game.

    • Wolfenstein: The New Order wasn’t horror, but The Old Blood is a standalone expansion for it that introduces Nazi zombies, the occult and other spooky stuff so it has more of a horror feel to it.

  • The Order and Bloodbourne are both excellent games

    Mine has to be Resident Evil HD. Followed EVER SO CLOSELY, by Bloodborne!

    The only one of these I’ve played is Bloodborne and as far as I’m concerned that is game of the year period. Game of the last 10 years. I haven’t enjoyed a game this much since Final Fantasy 7.

    For me Homesick is just another game for fans of Anna or The Vanishing of Ethan Carter: dull slow and short graphics benchmark with few puzzles…

    Five nights at Freddy’s was the only game where I actually felt terrified. It is the essence of jump scares and most of the games just can’t compare, neither in making me feel afraid or actually jumping up in terror.Other games on this list are either bad, funny, too full of action or Resident Evil which I can’t find attractive anymore since #4.

    Haven’t played White Night yet, but I imagine it would be scarier than Bloodborne. I kinda feel bad voting against WN not knowing for sure.
