50+ Horror Games You MUST Play

Share This Review!

Hello, everyone, and welcome to Breaking Canon! On this site, I review video games (and animations, occasionally) of my choosing and make recommendations on which ones you should play.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, my selection of horror games will be smaller for 2017. I will have over 20 reviews out for October 2017. I hope you will understand. The game selection can include ANYTHING to do with horror: the classics, the modern hits, the indie titles, the forgotten, and even the unknown. As long as the games have horror themes in them, I can cover them.

Like the Breaking Canon page on Facebook or follow @BreakingCanon on Twitter to stay in touch with future reviews. In the meantime, take a look at my current reviews and I hope you’ll give these games a try!
