7 of The Best Horror Moments in Non-Horror Games


Halloween is upon us, ladies and gentlemen, and that can only mean one thing: revelling in the horror genre. And so, for better or worse, this holiday weekend will be spent peeking between our fingers at our favorite movies, tie-toeing around a terrifying gaming experience such as SOMA and indulging in copious amounts of candy. 

It’s a wonderful time of the year because perhaps more so than any other genre, horror games hold the innate ability to have you on tenterhooks. Pupils dilate, blood pressure spikes and those hairs on the back of you neck shoot up to a standstill. It’s intoxicating, really, and it’s little wonder why any entry into the horror genre gains such a passionate following. 

But what of the memorable horror moments included in games outside of the genre itself. We’ve already placed the microscope on our top 5 scariest moments in gaming, but let’s cast the net a little further and select those terrifying segments that caught us unaware.

Tell us, what is your favorite horror moment from our list? Indeed is their one in particular that we missed out on? Drop your thoughts in the comments below.

And a happy and safe Halloween from all of us here at PlayStation LifeStyle!
