When it comes to scary games, the best thing you can do is start slow. For example, if you have no experience in horror games, jumping right to something like Outlast is not recommended. Don’t be a hero and play Phasmophobia by yourself because that will most likely just send you hiding under a bed. A game that has elements of horror but is more campy than scary is the original (not remake) Resident Evil 4. There’s a good combination here that is perfectly tolerable for new horror players.

Be In Good Company

There’s a reason that games like The Forest and Phasmophobia have multiplayer options. Being trapped on an island with cannibals is a lot easier when you have company with you. Thus, if possible, have a friend sit with you in person or on voice chat while you go through a single player game. Their reassurance, presence and support will make things a lot more comfortable for you.

Play Something Secure

There’s one thing all of the most terrifying games have in common, and that is giving you either no form of personal protection or taking it away completely. Therefore, it’s a good idea to pick horror games where you always have something on hand for most of the game. It will make you feel more secure, minimizing your emotional vulnerability to scary creatures.

Overall, the most important thing is to gauge and understand your tolerance level. Scary games aren’t for everyone and that is completely okay. However, if you’re in the mood to try to something out of your comfort zone, use these tips next time!
