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 Witcher 3: Haunted House Side Quest Walkthrough
Well, well, well, if it isn't the consequences of your actions.
How to start haunted house, visiting the house.
You don't always get to see the consequences of your actions in The Witcher 3 . Many decisions that Geralt makes have far-reaching effects that may take months or years to manifest. That's not the case with the godling-infested house you searched in Novigrad for an oneiromancer.
Related: The Witcher 3: Contract: An Elusive Thief Side Quest Walkthrough
When Geralt arrives at this house, he's approached by a wealthy banker who had purchased the property as an investment, only to discover that it has been haunted. You have to choose between telling him the truth or letting its harmless resident stay. You get to see the fruits of your labor in the quest Haunted House.
To unlock Haunted House, you need to complete Novigrad Dreaming , one of the game's main quests that you start shortly after arriving in the city. In it, Geralt searches for a missing oneiromancer who may be able to help him find Ciri.
Over the course of the investigation, Geralt discovers that the house isn't haunted. Instead, a harmless godling named Sarah had simply made her home inside and was scaring its residents for fun. At the end, you have to tell de Jonkheer that the house has been irreversibly haunted, letting Sarah stay.
Telling de Jonkheer the truth will have Sarah evicted. She'll make a cameo in the quest Bald Mountain later in the game, where she'll be considerably less welcoming to Geralt.
Several days later, you can find a notice at Hierarch Square's Notice Board titled " Beware! Haunted House & Cheating Merchant!". Picking it up will start the quest.
The quest will guide you back to the house, where Geralt discovers that Sarah had made a new friend, Corinne Tilly. Despite being trapped in her own nightmares for several days thanks to Sarah, Corinne was curious about the monster and chose to meet the godling.
The pair became fast friends and live in the abandoned house together. After talking to them, Geralt will reflect on their bond in a brief cutscene before the quest ends.

Walkthrough [ ]
Head to the house where, before you can enter, the new owner, Rudolf de Jonkheer , will greet you. You can ask him more about the house but ultimately he'll let you go in seeing as you're a witcher and might help with whatever is haunting the house.
Upon entering you'll hear laughter and the sound of footsteps and, as you start to head upstairs, you'll hear Corinne in distress. Head up and you'll see a godling , Sarah , standing over the sleeping oneiromancer. After a short cutscene, it's clear Corinne is under a sleeping spell and won't wake up normally. However, she does gives you 2 clues: the doll and the attic. With that, head up to the attic (the door opposite the bed) and climb up the ladder. Use Aard on the blocked doorway, then enter to find the rag doll and the drawing of a crib here. If you already explored the house, Geralt will comment he knows where the cradle is, but regardless, just head back down to the room Corinne is in and, in the only other room off of the bedroom, you'll find the cradle.
After you place the doll here, the door will close, with a drawing on the back of it. After interacting with it, go find the oven, which is all the way down in the cellar (the trapdoor is on the first floor right next to the stairs). Note that while there's a weakened wall here, you don't need to go past it for this quest. Interacting with the oven will cause another cutscene, this time formally meeting Sarah, who'll reveal she was just having fun and sees the place as her home and was just trying to get the banker to leave. You can answer however you like in the first part, but in the second choice, you have to decide to either make a deal with her (allowing her to stay) or force her to leave.

Let Sarah Stay [ ]
If you wish to let the godling stay, agree to make a deal with her, and she'll let the dreamer wake up so you can talk to her. Doing this will eventually see Rudolf sell the house to some "poor fool" and will give access to the secondary quest, Haunted House .
Banish Sarah [ ]
If you wish to make the godling leave, you'll need burdock . If you haven't already bought it, head to the herbalist across the canal (you can talk to Rudolf as you head off to get it, but the conversation doesn't yield much). When ready, place the herb on the oven, stand back, then use Igni . Sarah will throw some insults at you but relents and leaves.
Talk to Corinne [ ]
Regardless how you dealt with Sarah, head back upstairs to Corinne. After talking with her, she'll agree to help you and asks that you meet her at her room at the Golden Sturgeon . With that, leave the house only for Rudolf to stop you to ask about the haunting, as Corinne didn't tell him what happened. No matter how you dealt with Sarah and if you tell the banker the truth or not, Rudolf will ultimately decide to sell the house and asks that you visit in a week or so as he'll give you a percentage of the commission when he sells the place.

Novigrad Dreaming is a main quest in Novigrad .
Triss knows a dreamer in town that can help you find Ciri in your dreams. Make your way into the rich part of town by following your marker on your mini map . When you approach the house, the wealthy banker that bought it mentions that Corrine is inside but that she didn’t want to be disturbed. He thinks his house is haunted. Go inside to check on her.
Corrine doesn’t look good at all. Her nightmares are taking over and she needs help. Go check the attic and use Aard to bust down the planks. Pick up a note and the doll nearby. Take the doll back down to Corrine and put it in the crib next to her bed. When you do, a door slams and a new note appears. On the note is a black stove. Go to the basement to find it.
Down in the basement, you find the source of Corrine’s nightmares, a Godling named Sarah. She’s scared of being kicked out, so she invented the haunted house bit to stay there. To wake Corrine up, you need Sarah’s help. You have two options with her.
When Corrine wakes up, she is grateful and offers to help you over at her place. Leave the house and tell the banker either it is haunted for good so Sarah can stay, or tell him the truth about the Godling .
Leave the house and follow the map to Corrine’s dream room. When you arrive you can tell her as much or little about Ciri as you wish. Enter the dream and you will see a glimpse of Ciri ’s time in Novigrad.

How to complete The Witcher 3's Novigrad Dreaming quest, from solving the mysterious haunting to meeting Corinne at the Golden Sturgeon Inn.
This page covers Novigrad Dreaming, Corinne, ragdoll, crib and Golden Sturgeon . If you're looking for more assistance, our Witcher 3 walkthrough can help.
Before you begin your next quest, consider paying a visit to the blacksmith and merchant nearby in order to restock or upgrade your supplies. When you're ready, make your way through the city streets in the direction of the objective marker.
Once you reach your destination, tell the banker that you're searching for Corinne, wrap up the conversation and head inside the building nearby.
Find the dreamer in the old house
Make your way through the gloom (looting as you go) and head up the staircase. It appears that something really is haunting the house, so it's time to do some investigating.
Search the attic
Head through the closed door at the far end of the room and climb the ladder beyond. At the top, you'll discover that the doorway into the next room is blocked. Cast Aard to destroy the wooden shelves and head on through. Loot the various containers, then activate your Witcher Senses to locate the points of interest in the room. First, examine the drawing of a crib on the chair, then take the rag doll lying on the bench.
Examine the drawing
When instructed, open your Inventory and examine the drawing of a crib in your Quest Items.
Pull the doll in the crib
In order to complete your next objective, you'll need to locate a crib. There isn't one in the attic, so head back down the ladder and make your way through the door to the right of Corinne's bed. A small crib rocks gently in the corner of the room - examine it to place the doll inside.
Find out why the door slammed shut
Next, turn around and interact with the door that slammed shut a moment ago. The scrawled drawing that you find appears to depict an oven. Best get looking for one!
Examine the oven
Head back through the bedroom door and make your way down the stairs. At the bottom of the steps, locate the trapdoor in the floor, open it and head into the basement. Examine the large stone oven to discover the cause of the house's apparent haunting. Speak to the godling and agree to make a deal, bringing the conversation to an end. When you're done, return to the bedroom and introduce yourself to Corinne.

Meet Corinne at the Golden Sturgeon
With Corinne back on her feet, leave the house. Talk with the banker waiting outside and decide whether you want to protect the godling or reveal the truth about the haunting. Once the conversation is over, make your way west and enter the Golden Sturgeon inn. Corinne waits in her quarters upstairs, so engage her in conversation to continue the quest. When prompted, begin recalling your memories of Ciri - you can go through as many as you like before choosing to continue the ritual. Next, it's time to discuss Ciri's abilities and, finally, the people she might be searching for. When you're finished talking, prepare to dream.

Novigrad Dreaming Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Quest
Suggested level: 7
Group: Main Quests
You will receive this quest automatically when you complete the Pyres of Novigrad quest, at the end of which Triss will suggest you to talk to Corinne Tilly and tell you where you can find her.
Oneiromancers - or dreamers, as they are more commonly called - possess the ability their name implies to divine the future or relive the past through dreams. Corinne was one of the best of her kind and had no trouble finding clients, even with the hostility to the occult that reigned in Novigrad at the time. Geralt hoped she would spare him a few moments, and set off to find her in a house where she had gone to ply her trade.

After a short conversation with him, you will be able to enter the house. Go to the bedroom located on first floor of the house, where you'll find a sleeping Corinne. By her bedside, you'll see a little girl-like creature. When she sees you, she'll run away and hide. Geralt will try to wake up Corinne, but he will not succeed. Corinne has nightmares and screams something about a doll and an attic.
2. Search the attic. / Examine the drawing. / Take the doll.
In a small room adjacent to the bedroom, you will find a ladder that you can climb up to the attic. Next you have to use the Aard sign or weapon to destroy the bookcase that is blocking your path to the next room.
In the attic, find the Drawing of a crib and take a look at it.
Search the attic for the Rag doll too.
3. Put the doll in the crib. / Find out why the door slammed shut.
Go downstairs and enter the second of the small rooms adjacent to the bedroom. Put the doll in the cradle standing there.
The door to this room will suddenly shut behind your back. Approach the door and examine the drawing of the stove attached to it.
4. Examine the oven.
Go down to the basement. You'll get to it through the hatch located on the ground floor of the house.
Take a look inside the oven and Sarah, a harmless godling, will come out. She's the one who keeps Corinne from waking up. You can make a deal with Sarah and let her stay in the house or chase her away.
Note : If you let Sarah stay at the house, then some time later you will be able to do a short, additional quest - Haunted House .
5. (Optional) Get some burdock. / Burn burdock in the oven.
If you decide to get rid of Sarah, you'll have to get a burdock. You can buy it from the Herbalist in Novigrad. Once you get the burdock return to the house, place the burdock on the oven, stand back and then use the Igni sign. Sarah will run away.

7. Meet Corinne at the Golden Sturgeon.
When you leave the house, you'll talk to its owner again. If you let Sarah stay in the house, you can lie and tell him that the house is haunted or tell him the truth about the godling. In both cases, de Jonkher will decide to sell this house.
Go to Golden Sturgeon Inn. Corinne's room is located on the top floor of the inn. First she'll ask you some questions about Ciri and then she'll put you asleep. You will have a vision. You will see a swallow symbolizing Ciri and your old friend Dandelion - so they both met in Novigrad. When you wake up and tell Corinne what you were dreaming, she'll tell you where you can find your old friend.
Corinne agreed to help Geralt and put together a dreaming séance for him. Geralt has always been an introvert, and talking about his feelings and loved ones does not come easy for him. Yet that was exactly what the dreamer needed him to do if she was to dream about Ciri. In the end Geralt forced open his shell, then fell asleep - and dreamed. In his dream, he saw Ciri in Novigrad... with me.
After completing Novigrad Dreaming you will get or will be able to get Broken Flowers and Haunted House .
