Top 5 Horror Games Coming to the PS4 in 2016

I have a strange relationship with horror games, to say the least. At times, I adore them. Playing a scary game in a dark room, with a good set of headphones, is one of the most magical experiences gamers can have. But even when I'm having a 'good' time, a part of me despises these games. I mean, who likes being scared? The adrenaline rush, the sweaty palms firmly grabbing the controller with all your strength and the accelerated heart beat. Regardless of how I feel, I still try to play as many horror games as I can. Therefore, I decided to list 5 of the many horror games I can't wait to play on my PS4 this year. Here they are:

5. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood

I was a big fan of Until Dawn. It delivered an extremely original experience that had me on the edge of my seat. That's why I was a bit disappointed when I heard the next game in the Until Dawn franchise was an on-rail shooter for PlayStation VR. However, the more I thought about it, the less worried I got. I believe Supermassive Games can deliver a terrying experience. One I can enjoy in my brand-new, beautiful VR set.

4.  Layers of Fear

Layers of Fear is a psychedelic horror game, in which you control an insane painter in the quest to finish his magnum opus. This one really plays with environmental storytelling. Each turn of the camera may change the look of your surroundings. Already out on PC, Layers of Fear will be out for the PS4 on February 16.

3. Allison Road

How sad were you when P.T. was cancelled? It truly was too good to be true (I hate you Konami). While the rest of us cried and coped with Sillent Hills' death, developer Lilith Ltd. decided to get up and make us the game we all want to play. Just like that, Allison Road was announced. A spiritual successor to PT, this game uses the same mechanics and gameplay ideas, except it doesn't entirely take place in a house. You're allowed to step out and explore a dark forest. Can't wait.

2. Friday the 13th: The Game

I still can't believe this game is actually happening. For the longest time, I would wonder how a 'Friday the 13th' game would look and play like. Well, I guess we're finding out. A 1v7, third-person, asymmetrical multiplayer title, one player controls Jason Voorhees while the remaining seven control camp counselors trying to survive the night. How good does that sound?

1. Outlast II

I loved the original Outlast. Sure, it dragged a bit too long. But the use of sound effects, the enemies you encountered and the terrifying location made it a must-try for horror fans. One of the biggest surprises of 2013. Developer Red Barrels finally announced that Outlast 2 will be released this fall, and they promise the game will test your faith, pushing players to a place where going mad is the only sane thing to do. I'm already sh**ting my pants.
