2020 has been a busy year of gaming and horror-themed games certainly were not in short supply! Going back through the games that were reviewed this year, I picked out games that stayed true to the genre of horror as well as a couple of games balanced on being considered horror or not but were still great games. So here’s the list of the top horror games reviewed, starting from the worst!



The Suicide of Rachael Foster

With an intriguing title that is more of a place card for what the game should really be called, “Firewatch copycat”, the game tries to scare but fails to do so with a story that needed a longer game in order to tell it fully but instead kept it short and garbled making it the worst game reviewed on Horror Fuel in 2020.





Maid of Sker

A visually beautiful game that has as many ups and downs as a fairground roller coaster. With its confusing control layout, blaring soundtrack, bugged boss, and spoiled ending pretty much told to you from the start of the story, this game fell down to be the second worse game to be reviewed here in 2020.





Remothered: Broken Porcelain

The sequel to Remothered: Tormented Fathers slipped backward with the jumbled storytelling and fell on its ass with bugs. It’s not the worse but it’s also not the best but it still has what it offers to fans.






The spiritual successor to the horror gaming phenom P.T. takes what players loved about it and set it to an intriguing story. This walking sim has its good scares when it comes to the chapters but the jump scares within the home are overused.





Moons of Madness

This first-person Lovecraft-inspired space horror delivers the goods when it comes to the right amount of stress and fear without clouding over the story which would have impressed Lovecraft himself.





Resident Evil 3

Following on the heels of the success of the Resident Evil 2 remake, the remake of the popular third installment of the “Resident Evil” game series was an enjoyable rebirth of terror if you’re willing to overlook how short the game itself was which gave the game a feeling of being more like a DLC of the RE2 remake than its own game.





Zombie Army 4: Dead War

This sniper game was too much fun for its own good with hours of Nazi Zombie headshot excitement! Team up with friends or go it alone, either way, you’ll enjoy yourself.





Destroy All Humans!

The HD remake of the 2005 cult classic brought back so much nostalgia including a never before released mission for the game’s anti-hero Crypto to take on.





Mortal Shell

This souls-like game brought the eerie atmosphere and abnormal enemies you would expect in a souls game and even offered up its own unique mechanics. If you’re willing to punish yourself with hours of dying and repeating, this is for you.





Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope

The second installment in the Dark Pictures series did not disappoint and dare I say took up the scares a notch with this tale of witchcraft and mystery for you to solve. The well placed jumpscares and beautifully done lighting and art made this game the best-reviewed horror game of 2020.




The fun doesn’t stop as the year winds down. Over the last couple of months, there’s been information coming out about some horror games coming up in the New Year!


The Most Anticipated Horror Games Of 2021!


Resident Evil Village

Also known as Resident Evil 8, is (you guessed it) the eighth installment of the main series and it’s second first-person game where players pick up where the seventh game left off and again play as  RE7’s protagonist Ethan as he goes to a mysterious village to find answers relating to why his wife was murdered.





Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

The third installment of Dark Pictures Anthology featuring Ashley Tisdal and is inspired by Sumerian Mythology.





Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood

This upcoming game tells the story of a Werewolf named Cahal on the road of redemption as he faces off against a big oil corporation whose activities threaten the tree of life as well as the safety of Cahal’s clan.





Back 4 Blood

From the same team that brought us the “Left 4 Dead” games comes a whole new first-person zombie shooting extravaganza where you and your friends (or you go solo with AI teammates) face off against hoards of infected enemies!




Honorary Mention!


This game is expected to arrive in 2022 but because it’s coming from the same team that made Dead Space, it’s hard not to get excited so early; I’m talking about The Callisto Protocol! This game will take place on one of the moons of Jupiter, Callisto, in a prison where players will have to fight for survival. Not much is known about the game as of now but trust me when I say we’re looking forward to hearing more about it!
