Resident Evil Revelations 2 was definitely one of those titles for me, and it wasn’t until years after its initial release that I got a chance to play it.

So step into the shoes of iconic heroine Claire Redfield as she travels to the desert island prison in search of Barry Burton’s missing daughter in this classic originally released in 2015.

Purists might argue that this game isn’t technically horror, but anyone who’s actually played it will tell you that living through the trauma and ashes caused by this game is its own kind of terror. This trauma experienced is arguably what has made this game such a compelling experience for so many over the years.

Explore the challenges of wartime survival through the eyes of a child. The original release’s DLC brings a whole new perspective to the trauma of the first by putting you in charge of a cast of adults and children doing their best to survive in a city under siege during wartime.

Buy West of Dead for $0.87

This game is just fun….period.

It’s a horror game for sure, the only difference is that in this game you are the horror. Set in the small town of Purgatory, Wyoming in 1888, as you race for cover, pin your opponents, and make strategic moves around the dark angles of procedurally generated hunting grounds.

Even if you don’t play the entire game, even a few hours in the world of this game is enough to get your money’s worth.
