The 7 Horror Games That are Better Than Resident Evil 7

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Developer: Frictional Games

Release date: 8 September 2010

Platforms: PC, PS4

Amnesia gets under your skin and never leaves. Those who had the chance to play this stunning horror game admit that the only possible way to play the game was in short time bursts -- it was just too scary. The funny thing is that it doesn’t offer any sort of revolutionary gameplay, but Frictional Games still managed to come really close to what many would call “a perfect horror game.”

Amnesia provokes contemplation, and you start asking yourself: Where the true horror comes from? Is it the outside world or the inside of our minds? It plays with your fears like no other game, and it is truly horror inducing. The dark corridors of the old castle, screams behind the walls, moving shadows, creepy hallucinations... and your own loud heartbeat. Everything here is made to unsettle the player.

Capcom clearly went for the same effect when creating RE7. Did they manage to build the same level of terror? Well, they did to a certain extent, but the atmosphere of Amnesia is still heads above the one in RE7.
