Scary novels tend to be more horrifying when tried on their own, which is why I’ve always preferred single player horror games. However, there is no denying that multiplayer has taken over video games over the past decade, capturing gamers with the unpredictable excitement of online cat-and-mouse matches. Now this horror juggernaut like Friday the 13th franchise up evil dead It’s in the action, and lesser-known properties like the massive catalog of B-movies from Full Moon Features have also gotten a multiplayer treatment with projects like the upcoming October games. Doll Master: The Game.
Of course, there is still an untapped plethora of memorable scary movies that can be translated into entertaining interactive experiences, which is why we came up with this list of horror movies worthy of their multiplayer video game mods.
While this list is based on personal opinion, there are two basic rules. First of all, there are no movies that have actually been made into licensed multiplayer video games (although other types of games are acceptable). We’ll also only focus on live mods, so there’s no DLC licensed for titles like He died in broad daylight. Finally, these entries have been selected according to the potential entertainment factor of the licensed video games, not necessarily the overall quality of the movies themselves.
As usual, don’t forget to comment below if you think we missed any fun horror flicks that will make you enjoy multiplayer games.
Now, on the list…
6. A Quiet Place (2018)
While you have to accept quite a few logical contradictions in order to enjoy John Krasinski’s insanely popular A quiet place The movies (like how survivors never have to contend with noisy bodily functions and delusional thinking of how aliens differentiate from natural sounds), even the fiercest critics have to admit, the movies paranoia would make for a great video game mechanic.
An online title where players are tasked with outsmarting the so-called “Angels of Death” during risky levels feels like a very intense experience with plenty of replay value. You can even have some players play the role of a blind invader, searching for prey via some form of vision sonar.
Another movie that could be adapted into a game with similar mechanics would be shiveringalthough the secretive nature of the popular Graboids game means it will likely be less fun to play with A quiet place’Death Angels. On that note, Single player experience built on A quiet place It’s actually in the works from Saber Interactive, the last we heard!
5. Poltergeist (1982)
Masked killers and monstrous creatures can be intimidating, but what about inanimate beings that come to life and try to eliminate players as they attempt to rid a seemingly ordinary home of paranormal activity? This sexy setting is why I think Toby Hopper evil soul It could be the perfect basis for a multiplayer online horror experience where parapsychologists collaborate to battle a hostile environment controlled by invisible spirits.
Think Luigi’s Palace Meets Ghostbusters on the Internet evil soul The game can allow players to explore haunted houses and perform exorcisms while the illusionist puppet master pulls invisible clues and tries to eliminate the detectives. Hell, “This house is clean” can appear on the screen after a successful match against spirits!
4. Child’s Play (1988)
Not only death guide One of Quentin Tarantino’s most underrated features (it’s like a car-based carnage sequel all rolled into one), but could also be made into a kick-ass video game if put into the hands of a competent developer.
All they have to do is borrow the mechanics of hide and seek for titles like Died in broad daylight And combine it with the complex madness of classics like twisted metal or even Burnt, Players are forced to survive thrilling car chases as a deadly acrobat tries to bring them down in the most terrifying showdown on the battle racing genre.
Of course, there are other films that developers can inspire when designing a game like this one, like the Stephen King movie Speed Limit or even Christine.
2- Dracula (1931)
There have been more than two hundred film adaptations of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula Over the years, more are scheduled to be released in the near future. However, in the world of video games, the character has only shined as an opponent of Castlevania A series, with some legitimate attempts to bring Stoker’s gothic threads into games. I think that’s a real shame when you consider how easy it is to turn this story into games.
In fact, the more it is virtual Dracula The title stuck to Stoker’s original vision, the more fun the resulting game would be. An unequal battle between a tight-knit group of heroes (including scientists, vampire hunters, and badass doctors) who work together to bring down an ancient demon with a fearsome array of supernatural powers can be ridiculously enjoyable without losing track of the human element that made the original story so compelling in the first place. the first.
1. The Invisible Man (1933) / The Invisible Man (2020)
HG Wells Invisible Man Not only is he one of the first literary examples of a super psychopathic villain, he’s also an incredibly versatile character who can easily be included in a multiplayer horror game. Think about it: a group of sinister players are tasked with tracking down the invisible killer in a closed environment, searching for the faintest traces of an unseen existence as a killer player tries to remain undetected and manipulates the level in order to defeat the killer. stalkers.
interactive Invisible Man The game will be like a virtual game of hide and seek on steroids, as players try to outdo each other in experiencing paranoia that rivals even the best matches Died in broad daylight or Friday the 13th. You can even bring in items from Leigh Whannell’s newer adaptation, where invisibility powers come from a rechargeable high-tech suit instead of a mysterious serum, giving players more chance to fight back against unseen danger.
