The best horror PC games (2021) for Halloween

Halloween is coming and this means that it's time to play some scary computer games, surround yourself with horror scenery, get the spine-tingling creeps, and make sure that you are ready for the upcoming holiday.


One of the scariest games on the market thanks to its splendid dark ambiance and well-developed graphics. The main character, a child lost somewhere in a parallel world, has to go through a number of locations, overcome obstacles he encounters on his way and get rid of enemies pursuing him. Along the way, he has to solve riddles and puzzles. It’s not such an active game, more an atmospheric one, where you still get goosebumps while hearing some weird echoes, eerie footsteps, or even creepy silence.

Resident Evil 8

One of the most famous horror franchises is back with Resident Evil: Village (for PC) that came out on May 7th, 2021. This 8th installment of the series follows Ethan and Mia Winters and their daughter Rose in their new home in Romania. However, their new life isn't as perfect as it may look at first and their past makes its way back to them. Resident Evil 8 is a true survival horror that offers an immersive experience and outstanding characters. Similar to the previous opus of the saga, get ready for surprising confrontations, puzzle-solving, and tension!

Little Nightmares

In Little Nightmares, you play as a little girl in a yellow raincoat, who is stuck on a scary vessel called the Maw with lots of weird and even grotesque creatures whose only wish is to gobble everything they see. As you walk by, everything seems huge and dangerous and the stylish game design only enhances the creepy feeling. During the game that can be played in 4-5 hours, you will encounter lots of puzzles, mysteries, and enigmas. Just perfect for Halloween!

World of Horror

World of Horror has a very interesting design: it’s made as a tribute to old Macintosh RPGs so if you are a fan of old games and graphics, this one is for you. You have to fight scary monsters, solve puzzles and make decisions that are crucial to the development of your game journey. The monsters and frightening creatures are inspired by the work of horror Manga writer Junji Ito so it makes the game even more mysterious and artistic.
