From Haunted Houses to Zombies: The Most Frightening Scary Horror Games
Do you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared out of your wits? Are you a fan of horror movies and looking for a new way to experience fear? Look no further. In this article, we will explore some of the most terrifying scary horror games that will leave you trembling with fear. From haunted houses to zombies, these games will push your limits and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Haunted Houses: A Classic Thrill
If you’re a fan of haunted houses, then horror games that feature eerie mansions or abandoned buildings are sure to provide an exhilarating experience. One such game that comes to mind is “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.” Set in a dilapidated plantation house in rural Louisiana, this game combines atmospheric horror with intense gameplay. As you navigate through dark corridors and solve puzzles, you’ll encounter grotesque creatures and terrifying jump scares that will keep your heart pounding.
Another notable haunted house game is “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.” In this first-person survival horror game, players find themselves trapped inside an ancient castle with no memory of how they got there. With limited resources and a lurking presence that feeds on fear, this game is guaranteed to make even the bravest players feel vulnerable and terrified.
Zombies: A Never-Ending Nightmare
Zombies have been a staple in horror culture for decades, and scary horror games featuring these undead creatures are always popular among thrill-seekers. One standout title in this genre is “The Last of Us.” Set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected humans turned into zombies, this action-adventure game blends intense combat with an emotionally gripping storyline. The realistic graphics and immersive gameplay make every encounter with the infected a heart-pounding experience.
For those seeking a more intense zombie experience, “Resident Evil 2” is a must-play. This remake of the classic survival horror game takes players back to Raccoon City, where a zombie outbreak has turned the population into flesh-eating monsters. With its atmospheric setting and relentless undead enemies, this game will keep you on your toes as you fight for survival.
Psychological Horror: A Mind-Bending Challenge
If you prefer horror games that mess with your mind, then psychological horror games are perfect for you. “Silent Hill 2” is often regarded as one of the best examples of this subgenre. As players control James Sunderland through the foggy town of Silent Hill, they unravel a deeply disturbing story filled with symbolism and psychological torment. The game’s haunting atmosphere and psychological twists will leave you questioning reality long after you’ve put down the controller.
Another mind-bending horror experience is “Layers of Fear.” In this first-person exploration game, players step into the shoes of a disturbed painter as they navigate through a constantly changing mansion. Delving into themes of madness and obsession, this game uses clever storytelling and visual trickery to create an unsettling experience that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Survival Horror: Fight or Flight
For those who enjoy intense gameplay and heart-pounding action, survival horror games provide an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other. “Outlast” is a prime example of this genre. Armed only with a camcorder, players must navigate through an abandoned psychiatric hospital filled with deranged inmates. With no means to defend yourself other than hiding or running away, every encounter becomes a tense battle for survival.
Another standout survival horror game is “Alien: Isolation.” Set fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s iconic film “Alien,” players assume the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter as she tries to survive aboard a space station infested by one relentless xenomorph. The game’s AI-driven alien enemy constantly adapts to the player’s actions, making every encounter a nerve-wracking game of cat-and-mouse.
In conclusion, if you’re a fan of being scared senseless, these scary horror games will provide an unforgettable experience. Whether you prefer haunted houses, zombies, psychological torment, or survival challenges, there is a game out there that will cater to your darkest fears. So grab your controller and prepare for a night of terror as you dive into these spine-chilling virtual worlds.

The tombstone of Selina found near the house
For many years I have heard about the infamous Kirby Road in Vaughn, Ontario but it wasn't till recently that I finally was able to look into it. I was driving to a pre-wedding party for my cousin at her groom-to-be's house, and noticed that the road his house was on, Stephanie Blvd, was right off of this Kirby Road I had heard murmurs of before.
Supposedly, this road often fools with your radio, your car will not start and all sorts of things that lead people to believe it was haunted. When I researched this, I found this wonderful blog , which I owe a great deal of credit to for my further discoveries, as she was able to explain some of the legends surrounding this road, and the supposedly two haunted houses there, as well as the solitary tombstone of a teenage girl located on the road. I'll be focusing on one aspect of the haunted Kirby Road on this blog:
"There [are] three stories concerning these houses. The first house is reported to have a reputation of crying babies and laughing children that are not there, and a tombstone with the words “Selina, I was a cute child,” written upon it nearby the house. It is also reputed that if you park your vehicle on the driveway and sit quietly, the little girl, “Selina”, will run around your vehicle, all the while tapping on it here and there."
Sure enough, I just came back from visiting the site for the first time, and eventually did find Selina's tombstone. The tombstone is unique; not only because of the very peculiar "I'm a cute kid" epitaph, but because of the lack of last name, typeface, and obviously the location. It is located three lampposts from the supposedly haunted house; a house my companion and I had decided we would go see after the tombstone. However, plans change.
We did not see an apparition of Selina, hear her cry/laugh, or see anything spookier than any rural road at 1:30 AM would be. But, part of the legend of Kirby Road includes a truck that will supposedly chase away anyone who comes to investigate and then suddenly disappear.
Some accounts say it's red, some that it has only one headlight. After we were done looking at Selina's stone, we decided to wait till one moving car passed by, so that it would be slightly safer to walk back on the shoulder of the road. But the car did not pass. It pulled over; right in front of us and Selina's tombstone. A pickup truck, but one with both headlights, and one that we believed to be black. The windows were not rolled down and nobody got out of the truck. My companion and I found that as good a time as any to get out of there, and proceeded to walk back to my car, which I had parked over at Stephanie Blvd, just under half a kilometre away.
The truck did not move from its place for at least five minutes. I remind you that this was at approximately 1:30 AM. I suppose it is entirely possible that the driver just saw two people at the side of the road, and decided to pull over and see what was going on, or that they too knew that Selina's tombstone was there and just happened to be visiting at the same time. But the fact that nobody ever got out of the car or approached us in any way is peculiar. And the fact that it was a pickup truck is at least eerily coincidental.
We didn't get a chance to investigate the house. I know I will certainly be making another trip there, as I still do have so much left to discover. Who is Selina? Why does she have a tombstone at the side of the road? Which stories about Kirby road are true? And how are they related, if at all? I'm being a little dishonest here as I have discovered the answers to a few of these questions already. But we'll save that for another time for now.
From The Natural Mama
This Friday past, we decided to check out two houses we had heard about on Kirby Rd in Maple, Ontario. It was an interesting experience to say the least. I “saw” something that would blow my mind, and is not the first time I’ve seen a possible apparition (I’ll get to that little story later on). There are three stories concerning these houses. The first house is reported to have a reputation of crying babies and laughing children that are not there, and a tombstone with the words, “Selina. I was a cute child,” written upon it, nearby the house.
It is also reputed that if you park your vehicle on the driveway and sit quietly, the little girl, “Selina,” will run around your vehicle all the while tapping on it here and there. I did not experience this part of the suspected phenomena, but did see what I believe to be a young girl around the age of eight or nine years old, with a night gown on, and long, black hair sitting in the second tree, (on the right when walking into the property from the drive way) staring back at me. She was leaning outward and staring right at me. Scared the living crap out of me when I caught this “apparition” out of the corner of my eye, and turned back to see what I thought was shadowing. It was clear as day to me, but then, I am a believer in the paranormal.
We did voice recordings and photographing of the place as well, and have some interesting photos and recordings of both houses (still going through all of it). The people who own this land are in the process of renovations, (I do not recommend trespassing on people’s properties and – always ask first before you go paranormal investigating, always get permission from the owners of the properties) and have torn down a chicken coop as well as are in the process of either tearing down the barn, or renovating the barn.
Items found in the barn’s basement – old Italian workbook, old picture book (circa 1854), a Triumph dirt bike (circa late 40′s or 50′s possibly), horse shoes, old looking, and very worn. The main house is locked, and being renovated for occupancy, possibly occupied already. Again, I must stress – ask permission first before you enter this property.
There is also a story of a one headlight semi-truck that passes under the bridge, (before you get to the house) and through your vehicle if you park there. Apparently, (and I cannot neither confirm or deny it with research at this point.) this semi was involved in a horrible accident many years back. It may be an urban legend spin-off from the second house that I am about to talk about; you’ll see why in a second.
The second house, (rather, set of houses) has two houses on the property and two barns. The flooring of both houses are very dangerous. If you decide to check this one out, (at the other end of Kirby Rd, by the way) watch your footing, bring good flashlights and keep an eye out for skunks, raccoons, and bats. This house is called the “Hell House”. It is reputed to have been owned by a family of seven, where the father was involved with the KKK. It is also reputed to be a (the first, larger barn) gathering place of the KKK. The story goes that the father went nuts and killed his family, including a little girl of the same age as the first house. There you will find a lot of graffiti like “You are not alone,” and “murder is awesome,” as well as, “I am watching you”.
Obviously, this is added by human hands to amp up the hype about these houses and their purported hauntings. It is said, (and this is possibly the urban legend transferred to the semi truck with one headlight phenomena at the other house) that a man in a red pickup truck will chase you out of the property if he catches you on it then disappear into thin air. There is also a story of a young woman who is walking the road and suddenly screams, then runs into a nearby corn field screaming bloody murder. This is purported to be about a woman who was attacked, raped, and murdered in the corn fields near this property. She is supposed to disappear into the corn fields if you follow her.
I cannot confirm or deny any of these stories by research at this point, neither in architectural history, land history or anything in old newspapers or obits as of yet. I cannot find anything on any of these stories, and we never did find the tombstone. However, I have been told that a few “friends of friends” who hang out regularly at these areas, have seen the tombstone and report being chased by both the red pickup, and the semi with one head light, as well as seeing the woman in the cornfields. How accurate are these, I do not know, but I do know I am sure I saw something that night that IS unexplainable. All 19 of us present at both sites were adults, not children. So how is it I saw a child in a tree at 1 AM in the morning on a Friday night (or rather Saturday morning)? I cannot explain it, but I will be researching it, and will update if I do ever find any information on these properties!
