7. Outlast

Outlast 01

Found footage horror

Outlast 02

Murder most foul

Outlast deposits you in an abandoned psychiatric hospital that’s been overrun by – you guessed it – deranged mental patients. As an investigative journalist biting off more than he can chew, you’re armed with nothing but your camera, whose green infrared mode allows you to see in the dark. Of course, using the camera leaves you vulnerable to dangers skulking around you. The gadget is also in constant need of batteries, so you’ll have to scrounge around for them unless you’re fine with groping around in the shadows.

The game has wowed critics and fans alike, thanks to its eerie, “found footage” atmosphere, and its pervasive sense of creeping dread.

Our rating – 5/5
