Horror games are usually also survival games, forcing you either to dismember monsters in self-defence, or running away from them to avoid being dismembered yourself. From Silent Hill and Doom to Five Nights at Freddy’s and Alien: Isolation, there have been many brilliant and/or popular examples of that diverse category. This list isn’t about them, however. Instead, I’d like to collect a handful of lesser-known games that are interested in creepiness rather than horror, that cultivate a sense of pervasive unease and wrongness rather than cries of oh my god I almost shat my pants. Some of them are fun in a twisted way, others are unnerving, and a few are downright disturbing. All of them are worth playing.
