From Haunted Houses to Zombies: The Most Frightening Scary Horror Games
Do you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being scared out of your wits? Are you a fan of horror movies and looking for a new way to experience fear? Look no further. In this article, we will explore some of the most terrifying scary horror games that will leave you trembling with fear. From haunted houses to zombies, these games will push your limits and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Haunted Houses: A Classic Thrill
If you’re a fan of haunted houses, then horror games that feature eerie mansions or abandoned buildings are sure to provide an exhilarating experience. One such game that comes to mind is “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.” Set in a dilapidated plantation house in rural Louisiana, this game combines atmospheric horror with intense gameplay. As you navigate through dark corridors and solve puzzles, you’ll encounter grotesque creatures and terrifying jump scares that will keep your heart pounding.
Another notable haunted house game is “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.” In this first-person survival horror game, players find themselves trapped inside an ancient castle with no memory of how they got there. With limited resources and a lurking presence that feeds on fear, this game is guaranteed to make even the bravest players feel vulnerable and terrified.
Zombies: A Never-Ending Nightmare
Zombies have been a staple in horror culture for decades, and scary horror games featuring these undead creatures are always popular among thrill-seekers. One standout title in this genre is “The Last of Us.” Set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected humans turned into zombies, this action-adventure game blends intense combat with an emotionally gripping storyline. The realistic graphics and immersive gameplay make every encounter with the infected a heart-pounding experience.
For those seeking a more intense zombie experience, “Resident Evil 2” is a must-play. This remake of the classic survival horror game takes players back to Raccoon City, where a zombie outbreak has turned the population into flesh-eating monsters. With its atmospheric setting and relentless undead enemies, this game will keep you on your toes as you fight for survival.
Psychological Horror: A Mind-Bending Challenge
If you prefer horror games that mess with your mind, then psychological horror games are perfect for you. “Silent Hill 2” is often regarded as one of the best examples of this subgenre. As players control James Sunderland through the foggy town of Silent Hill, they unravel a deeply disturbing story filled with symbolism and psychological torment. The game’s haunting atmosphere and psychological twists will leave you questioning reality long after you’ve put down the controller.
Another mind-bending horror experience is “Layers of Fear.” In this first-person exploration game, players step into the shoes of a disturbed painter as they navigate through a constantly changing mansion. Delving into themes of madness and obsession, this game uses clever storytelling and visual trickery to create an unsettling experience that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Survival Horror: Fight or Flight
For those who enjoy intense gameplay and heart-pounding action, survival horror games provide an adrenaline-fueled experience like no other. “Outlast” is a prime example of this genre. Armed only with a camcorder, players must navigate through an abandoned psychiatric hospital filled with deranged inmates. With no means to defend yourself other than hiding or running away, every encounter becomes a tense battle for survival.
Another standout survival horror game is “Alien: Isolation.” Set fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott’s iconic film “Alien,” players assume the role of Ellen Ripley’s daughter as she tries to survive aboard a space station infested by one relentless xenomorph. The game’s AI-driven alien enemy constantly adapts to the player’s actions, making every encounter a nerve-wracking game of cat-and-mouse.
In conclusion, if you’re a fan of being scared senseless, these scary horror games will provide an unforgettable experience. Whether you prefer haunted houses, zombies, psychological torment, or survival challenges, there is a game out there that will cater to your darkest fears. So grab your controller and prepare for a night of terror as you dive into these spine-chilling virtual worlds.

Historic Palmerton home goes on the market
Passing the Palmerton exit on Route 248, one can’t help but look up and notice the mansion on the hill. First owned by a Union Army officer in the Civil War, the historic home hit the real estate market this week with an asking price of $375,000.
“I think it is undervalued for the potential it can bring,” said Cass Chies, broker/owner of Diamond 1st Real Estate, who listed the home Thursday. “It’s not every day a property with this much history becomes available in Palmerton. It’s probably a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.”
The main home, boasting 10-foot ceilings, original parquet floors throughout the downstairs and 8-foot high solid doors and windows, was built in 1881 by four area carpenters: Alex Beers, Paul Snyder, Charles Prutzman and John Boyer. Its owner was Elisha Marshall, a Seneca Falls, New York, native who was given charge of the 13th New York Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War.
“It would be a great house to raise a family in, but then again I see maybe an investor who would want to preserve and protect and maybe contribute it to the historical society,” Chies said. “I know the historical society has interest in it, but they didn’t have the funds to purchase or maintain it. I also think it would be an awesome bed-and-breakfast. The views and the layout are tremendous and it’s such a unique homestead.”
The price tag, according to the real estate listing, reflects some of the repairs that are needed.
Having been vacant for about five years, the property is managed by Eldercare Solutions and maintained by Cass’ husband, Mike Chies.
“He comes up two or three times a month to check on it and make any immediate repairs,” Cass said. “The really neat thing is almost everything, right down to the remote control, is just where William Gordon, the most recent occupant, left it.”
Marshall and his regiment gained notoriety at the Second Battle of Bull Run in 1862 and later that year at Fredericksburg. He was eventually designated a Brigadier General to honor “his gallant and meritorious service.”
In 1865, Marshall married Jennie (Janet) Rutherford, his second wife, whose family owned several ore mines and a processing mill in the local area.
According to media reports and Palmerton Historical Society information, Marshall fell in love with the view of the pristine Lehigh Gap and the surrounding mountainsides, and purchased “Eddy’s Hill” in 1879. Less than 18 months after the home was completed, however, he sold it to his father-in-law, James Rutherford. Marshall passed away several years later on Aug. 3, 1883.
Marshall’s widow lived in the mansion until shortly before her death at age 67. At the time, the mansion and the caretaker’s home next door was valued at $8,125.
She passed down the property to her brother Henry, and following his death, the mansion was sold in 1916 to Jacob Mooney.
Lester Kern, a Palmerton contractor, bought it in 1959 and remodeled the caretaker’s home for himself and his family.
Current owner William Gordon, who was then a professor at Drexel University, bought the property in 1986. He hired a crew from The Service Team, which rebuilt the front porch, and installed 51 vinyl windows, a new roof and light blue vinyl siding.
Gordon lived in the mansion until about five years ago and is now a resident at The Village at Palmerton, an assisted living facility.
“It’s my understanding his room there has a view of the mansion so he can keep an eye on it,” Chies said.
A famed Palmerton landmark
The 3-acre property consists of the three-story, four bedroom, one-and-a-half bath Victorian home; a separate guesthouse with carport; and a detached one-car garage.
Locals and out-of-towners alike have long hoped to get a glimpse inside the mansion, but often their efforts have failed.
“When I was with the Palmerton Concourse Club, I had approached the owners of the house to see if we could make it part of the Christmas tour just because this is such a huge attraction,” Chies said. “They respectfully declined.”
Tales have been handed down several generations about the mansion being haunted.
“I was up here last weekend taking pictures, and when I put the camera down my shutter just kept flashing,” Chies said. “I wasn’t even touching the buttons. I just looked down and said ‘come on, guys, knock it off.’ Other than that, we haven’t had any experiences like that.”
Although it is for sale, the property is not going to become a spot for just anyone to tour.
“This will not be an open house venue,” Chies said. “It will be qualified and restricted potential buyers only. We just can’t have a lot of people coming through.”
The guest home next to the mansion has not been checked for stability, and any potential buyer is likely going to have to sign waivers as it is in need of a total rehabilitation.
“I think it’s very possible for someone with a vision,” Chies said, “and probably a lot of cash to renovate it or restore it to what it was back in the day.”
