10 games that will make you happy that you had a sleepover.

Are you having a sleepover with your friends? Why not spend your sleepover being spook out by amazing and terrifying horror games? Here the top 10 horror games to play at a sleepover with your friends. 


10. Five Nights at Freddy’s 

 The game follows a night guard named Mike Schmidt who watches Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza at night. However, the animatronics roam at night and try to kill Mike. You must make sure Mike survives every night he works. 

 The game is from the first-person perspective. To survive, you must use cameras to keep an eye on the animatronics while keeping them out of your room by shutting the doors close. Using the cameras and shutting doors close drain the batteries, so those two things must be done wisely or you will die.

9. Dead by Daylight

You play as a killer and hunt down survivors, or play as a survivor and escape from the killer. Four survivors must work together to escape the killer who wants to hunt them down and sacrifice them to a monster called the “entity.” 

As a survivor, you must repair the generators so that the exit can be unlocked. The killer, on the other hand, can catch the player and hook them to begin the sacrifice. Survivors can use items against the killer to slow the killer down.

8. Bendy and the Ink Machine

You play as a retired animator who goes to a studio he once worked for, but only to find that cartoon characters, brought to life by an ink machine, are out to kill him.  You solve puzzles while fighting off monsters in the dark studio. 

 The game is in a first-person horror game. There are weapons you can get to fight against monsters such as Bendy but you must manage your resources wisely. The monsters are terrifying. 
this game has a cult following despite the mixed reviews from critics. If you are interested in a game with horrifying cartoon characters, this should not disappoint you.

7. Secret Neighbor

Secret Neighbor gameplay

You play as the neighbor and try to capture the children or you play as a child and explore the neighbor’s house while avoiding the neighbor. If you are a child, you must keep you guard up as the neighbor can disguise himself as a child to catch you off guard. 

The game plays much like the first Hello Neighbor if you are playing the child. You explore the home, and you can use items to defend yourself and slow the neighbor down. Playing as the neighbor does changes the pace as this is the first game where you can play as the neighbor. If you liked the first game, then you and your friends should like this game.

6. Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly

Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly gameplay 

Taking place in Japan, you play as a girl named Mio who goes to a village with her sister. The village turns out to be filled with dangerous ghosts. You must find out the truth about the village while fighting off the ghosts using a camera. 

You explore areas and solves puzzles like other survival horror games. Your method of defense is different from other horror games; you use a camera. The game is in the third person, but it shifts into first-person when you use the camera. You take pictures of ghosts to kill them. 

You want something a bit different, then try this game out (as well as other Fatal Frame games). This and other games in the series are terrifying.

5. Amnesia: The Dark Descent

You play as a young man named Daniel who finds himself in a castle. You must explore the castle while avoiding the monsters lurking. You can only run or hide from the monsters as you have no ways of defending yourself, and they will keep searching for you. 

You have a health bar that can be depleted if hit by a monster, but health is not the only thing you have to worry about. You have to worry about maintaining your sanity which can be depleted by looking at monsters and being in the dark. You can light up areas with items such as tinderboxes that you can find, but you must manage your resources always.

SOMA gameplay

You play as someone named Simon who finds himself in a submarine research facility. As you find out what is going on, you must avoid being attacked by monsters such as the leviathan and a robotic monster. 

This game was developed by the same company that made Amnesia. Like Amnesia, the game is in the first-person view and you must find clues and access new areas while avoiding the monsters trying to kill you.

3. Outlast

You play as a journalist named Miles who goes to investigate an Asylum because he heard that experiments are taking place there. He finds that the patients (who were experimented on) roam the Asylum and have killed much of the staff. You must help Miles find a way out while as you find out the details of what took place. 

The game plays similar to Amnesia. The game is in first-person and you must run and hide from enemies as you don’t have any means of defending yourself. Much of the asylum is unlit, so you must use your camera (in night vision) to see, but it drains the battery; you can find batteries throughout the game, but you must conserve them.

2. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles gameplay 

This game is a rail shooter (similar to House of the Dead) where you play scenarios based on Resident Evil 0, 1, 3, and an original scenario. You play as different characters, depending on the scenario, and you fight zombies and other monsters. Always be prepared to shoot because there will be a lot of monsters. 

You unlock new levels, and other content, as you play throughout the game. There are many weapons you can use to fight monsters, and some of the scenarios are reimagined (particularly Resident Evil 3). If you want a Resident Evil that plays like an arcade rail shooter, then check this game out.

1. Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

This is the second game to the Resident Evil Chronicles series where the scenarios cover Resident Evil 2, Code Veronica, and a new scenario. You play as different characters, depending on the scenario, and you fight off zombies and other monsters. 

This game plays like Umbrella Chronicles; the gameplay plays the same as it is a rail shooter. There are fewer scenarios in this game, but the scenarios are much longer though. You will like Darkside Chronicles if you liked Umbrella Chronicles.
