Because of that, we wanted to create a list with some of the coolest horror games that will make your autumn evenings memorable and a whole lot of fun!
SOMA is an amazing game and it does have a very good story. It has more of a psychological twist instead of relying on jumpscares but it’s really good and one of the games that you should play this autumn for sure.
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth
It might be an older game, but Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is indeed offering the novella appeal all while bringing in a good set of scares. It’s also offering a good lore from the Ctulhu mythos which is great!
Dead Space series
It’s hard to pick a specific game from this series. All of them are connected and they are a lot of fun even if they are very scary at times. You should play all 3 of them in their natural release order. Rest assured that there’s a lot of fun to be had here.

Left 4 Dead series
Left 4 Dead is a very good cooperative game and one that’s actually a blast to play. It’s very active after so many years and it does a very good job in offering intense gameplay options.
Resident Evil series
All of these games are great and while the quality did decline with the last few entries, you are still set to have a ton of fun. People that love psychological horror will surely enjoy this title.
