Every gamer who appreciates being one has ever tried spooky video games. Be it the bloody ones, with monsters or psychological terror, these titles have something special that makes them irresistible, although after playing them we have to pay the price of not sleeping for a couple of days and feel that something is going to come out of the closet.

Not happy to make you travel a desolate ship almost blindly, the developers of Dead Space decided that it would be a good idea to add the necromorphs, an extraterrestrial race with horrible designs and creative nature that make them adapt to the lack of limbs.

Only the minds of Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima could bring this game to life. We only met the demo, but with that, it was more than enough to name it as one of the most terrifying games.
The plot takes place in a hallway, where you have to go around the same place several times, but in each of them, it makes you feel the real terror. The best is the end, so intense that it still lives in our memory.
