'Resident Evil 7'

Instead of open fields and action gameplay, “RE7” puts players in winding corridors and dark environments. While there are guns in the game, you’ll be relying more on evasion and stealth to get by. “Resident Evil 7” is available to play on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

'Silent Hill 2'

Despite releasing 16 years ago, “#Silent Hill 2” still stands as one of the scariest horror games in the industry.
