Usually, the games that draw horror fans in the most are the ones with big named companies behind them, with this being why some games end up becoming critically acclaimed. Yet, every now and then, a small named game becomes legendary.
Bendy And The Ink Machine, a twisted indie game with a sequel on the way that spins concepts like 1940’s cartoons on its head is one such game, a game that works better and to far more an effect than any big named property game ever could.
In almost every horror game, the same thing happens to each character. The protagonist’s dumped into some horrifying situation and forced to overcome the evil with limited supplies, adding to the horror. Of course, not all games follow this method.
From its humble beginnings to its large-scale reboot Doom has done the opposite, loading gamers up with a massive armory of weapons and sending them after hordes of demons. Add all that into a good story that reveals more information about the iconic Doom Slayer and Doom is one hell of a game with an awesome storyline.

Good horror games rely on fear to intrigue it’s audiences, leading them down a dark, twisting path full of scares and horrific imagery. A phenomenal horror game, however, relies on emotional impact along with terror.

Not to mention the gut-wrenching ending sets the game in a class of its own.
