What are the best horror games of 2021?

The horror genre has always been one of the most loved in the videogame field: whether it is survival horror, action / horror or even psychological horror, players are always fascinated (and terrified) by productions that focus on distressing situations, disturbing moments and even from healthy carefree splatter.

So what are the best of the horror games released in 2021? The year is underway and other exponents of this type of productions could make their appearance in the coming months, however so far we have already had some rather interesting exponents both from the mainstream market and from the Indie scene. Obviously, the role of absolute protagonist was played by Resident Evil Village , released in May 2021: the eighth chapter of the historic Capcom series has perhaps turned a little more towards action than seen in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, however, has been able to give great moments to fans proving to be one of the productions of the year so far. 

Although of a different genre, Returnal can also fall into this category: the roguelike-like action arrived in April 2021 as an exclusive PS5 focuses a lot on psychological horror and does not disdain dark and disturbing atmospheres that have contributed to making the intriguing even more engaging. production by Housemarque . The Indie panorama instead offers us Little Nightmares II, a horror-themed puzzle-platform available from February 2021, the second chapter of the series created by Tarsier Studios and which continues to impress players with a disturbing but fascinating style.

These three productions undoubtedly deserve to be played, waiting to find out what else 2021 has in store for lovers of the genre. Eyes focused in particular on the release of Dying Light 2 confirmed for December 7, 2021: will this title close the year with a bang?
