  1. Honorable mention (and spoilers) The Forest.

    You may not be the killer at first but in the canon real ending YOU become the red man, knowingly bringing down a plane to kill almost everyone on it in order to save your son, and in turn killing someone else’s child to do that. I know you dont play as a killer the whole time, but that ending I think at least is an honorable mention, and is from an actual horror game unlike a few of the ones on the list.

  2. Dead by Daylight. I was introduced to the game after Michael Myers was released on a Free Play weekend on Xbox and I've been Hooked ever since. Being jumpscared and chased has been intense since I went all in and I haven't stopped playing yet.
