Horror is one of the most difficult genres that a video game can attempt to create.
Capturing the atmosphere and the feelings of peril, on top of creating spine-chilling enemies and genuinely good gameplay can be almost impossible to do.
Throwing a friend or two into the mix and you stand a good chance of just being able to nervously laugh your way through any traumatic experience.
These games, however, have hit the nail on the head.
The gloomy hallways. The daunting forests. The abandoned cities. Creatures and killers lurk around every corner and hide in every shadow just waiting for the opportunity to rip you and your friends apart.
These games will test your bottle as well as providing a great gaming experience, whether it be through original mechanics, intricate design or a more simplistic approach.
Some will even let you play as the killer.
Whilst almost every game in this list can be played solo (or at most with AI companions), there is just simply far more fun to be had with a couple of mates.
Whether you want to play through full dramatic stories, wave-based survival modes or something a tad more unique, it is all right here.
