Until Dawn (PlayStation 4) :“When eight friends are trapped on a remote mountain retreat and things quickly turn sinister, they start to suspect they aren’t alone. Gripped by fear and with tensions in the group running high, you’ll be forced to make snap decisions that could mean life, or death, for everyone involved. Every choice you make in your terrifying search for answers – even the seemingly trivial ones – will carve out your own unique story. With spine-tingling performances from a Hollywood cast including Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville) brought to life with the power of PlayStation®4 – your actions alone will decide who survives Until Dawn.” Release date: August 25, 2015
Five Nights At Freddy’s 3 (Microsoft Windows, Android, iOS) “Thirty years after Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza closed its doors, the events that took place there have become nothing more than a rumor and a childhood memory, but the owners of “Fazbear’s Fright: The Horror Attraction” are determined to revive the legend and make the experience as authentic as possible for patrons, going to great lengths to find anything that might have survived decades of neglect and ruin.” Release date: OUT NOW
Outlast (Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One,Linux, OS X)Outlast centers around a story driven survival campaign told in first-person narrative and set in a dilapidated psychiatric hospital overrun by homicidal patients. Its presentation is similar to the found footage genre popularized in horror films.The protagonist, reporter Miles Upshur, is incapable of combat, except for scripted sequences allowing him to shove enemies out of his way.” Release Date: OUT NOW
Fatal Frame V (Wii U):“The main character, Yuuri Kozukata, works at an antique shop and is able to see the “shadow” of objects she touches and can bring people back from “shadow world.” Yuuri’s gift is the reason she distances herself from other people but she also uses it to help others find lost items or missing people when they come asking for help. One day, a girl called Fuyuhi Himino enters the store with a request for Hisoka Kurosawa to find a friend of hers,Haruka Momose, who has gone missing around the area of Mt. Hikami. Unfortunately, Hisoka was currently absent at the time, so Yuuri takes up the request herself instead. People with such intentions enter the forest during the witching hour when the border between the world of the living and the hidden world of the shadows becomes blurred. It is said that those ending their own life there can die a clean, “proper” death and not become trapped as ghosts between worlds when committing suicide elsewhere.” Release Date: September 27, 2014 in Japan, US release date: It should be out this year but keeping fingers crossed
Silent Hill P.T. (PlayStation 4) : All I can say is..click on the trailer and we have NO IDEA if this game will be released. People are signing petitions to get this game to the public, I FREAKIN HOPE SO!
Slender Man : Everyone should know the story of Slender Man but I linked to a popular gamer for the people who want to see Slender Man in action. For Slender: The Eight Pages, it has been released for awhile now and is available on Microsoft Windows, OS X.

Gameplay consists of players fighting through waves against zombie-like specimens, known as Zeds. As waves pass, the enemy count will increase and different enemy types are introduced with the final wave culminating in a boss fight.” Release Date: OUT NOW
Dreadhalls (Microsoft Windows, Linux, PlayStation 4)“You will wake up in a scarcely lit dungeon. Find its exit, and avoid the creatures that dwell in it.
