This is one of the most underrated horror games. The game is brutal, challenging and amazingly fun to play.

Resident Evil HD: Remaster
Resident Evil was launched in 1998 and it really aided the launchpad of one of the best franchises of all time. At the advent of 3D game, this game is known for defining the survival horror genre. But, what is more, important is that after two decades later, it still holds the same charisma and thrill.
Owing to this, the game has been re-released again and again and Resident Evil HD: Remaster being the latest one. The game tells you the story of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine (members of the elite task force) who are sent to on an investigation to Raccoon City. But, their mission takes an ugly turn as both of them gets trapped in a mansion infested by not just the zombies but other monsters as well.

With everybody’s mind filled with fear and tension, you will be the one who will have to make prompt decisions and the lives of your friends are entirely dependent on the decisions made by you.

Amnesia games have been keeping the gamers on the edge of their seats since 2010 (year of its first title launch). This awesome collection comprises of – Amnesia: The Dark Descent, an expansion known as Justine, and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. While the expansion and other sequels are mind-blowing, it’s The Dark Descent that has impressed most of the gamers across the globe.
In Amnesia: The Dark Descent, you will be exploring a dark castle, where you will come across Lovecraftian monsters and you have to put your best efforts to avoid them. A Machine for Pigs is also a great horror title but somehow it is less popular amongst the gamers.
