What Is a Horror Game?

Horror is a genre of video games that places the player character in a vulnerable state, often leaving the player unarmed and unable to fight the varying monstrosities that come their way. Horror games can fall into a number of increasingly terrifying sub-genres:
  • Roleplaying (RPG) games, such as the Dark Souls franchise, combine the hunt for treasure and nerve-wrecking combat with jump scares and the constant fear of losing your loot
  • First-person shooter (FPS) games, like the incredibly tense Fear series, puts players directly into the shoes of the character, allowing them see the character’s hands and feet, giving another level of immersion and helping the player to feel as though they are there themselves.
  • Survival horror games, defined by the Silent Hill series, drops players into often abandoned places with no help and a lack of weapons to fight off the monsters. They combine the perfect blend of combat with survival, exploration and puzzle solving.
  • Action horror games, like the award winning Dead Space Franchise, balance action and horror, forcing players to adapt quickly to the action while increasing the difficulty and numbers of enemies, while using sound and level design to increase the horrifying atmosphere.
  • Walking simulator titles, such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent or the Outlast games, offer a unique take on the horror genre. They strip the players of weapons, giving them no way of attacking the enemies and instead relying on stealth and their ability to control their own paranoia in a terrifying scenario and increasingly horrifying story.
  Horror is not for everyone and even those seasoned to the genre can find a horror game terrifying. It is because of the scares, the screams and the doubt that we tackle horror games with that make them so rewarding upon completion, if we do get through them at all that is. If it’s scares you are looking for and the feeling of being alive, often while being dismembered in a game, then horror is for you, and take it one step further as virtual reality has improved every part of the genre, putting you front and center of your own horrors.

This is where Tags come in.

Why Are We Doing a Top 15 Strategy Games List

In the world of Strategy Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.

Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.

Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.

At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.

How Do We Get Our Rankings?

Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.

As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.

We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.

Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.

Our rankings are based on our users with no influence from us and we will remain impartial on the ratings and the rankings of all games.
