Best VR Horror Games

For decades, moviegoers have enjoyed watching scary movies and playing scary video games. Now, they’re able to experience these things firsthand through virtual reality (VR).

Once you’ve put on a headset, there’s nothing stopping you from believing that the horrors in the game are real, even for just a moment. That’s why the most terrifying VR games are even scarier when played through a headset.

Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul – PSVR, PC VR

Paranormal Activity is a movie where people get scared by cheap popcorn. But the VR experience is no different—it’s just a shamelessly jumpy bit of virtual reality fluff. We wouldn’t want it any other way.

If you’re looking for a game that makes you jump out of your seat at every turn, this isn’t for you; but if you want a game that keeps you glued to your chair until the end, this is one of the best VR zombie apocalypse survival titles.

Edge of Nowhere – Rift

Combining Uncharted, Dead Space, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Insomniac Games’ new game Sunset Overdrive into one game would be magic.

Third-Person Gamepad

Edge of Nowhere may not look quite as good as it did when it was released for Oculus Rift back in 2016, but it’s still an excellent piece of production and a really scary VR horror experience.

If only we could get it onto more platforms as it currently exists, this chilling VR experience would be lost to time.

Transference – PSVR, PC VR

One of Ubisoft’s early attempts at VR, Transference, was conceived by none other than Elijah Woods.

It’s a different kind of scary game than most others out there, focusing on psychological scares and using real actors instead of CGI.

Don’t be fooled by the lack of VR support; Transference is an extremely disturbing game for headsets and one of our favorites among VR horror titles.

Lies Beneath – Quest, Rift

It’s one of the best RPGs on the list in terms of single-player storytelling. The narrative is rich in detail and well-acted with a strong campaign full of twists and turns.


It looks visually stunning with its cel-shaded art design and comic book panel storytelling.


The game has two modes: one where you use guns like shotguns and another where you rely on melee weapons to fend off the hordes of monsters.

A Chair In A Room: Greenwater – PSVR, PC VR

From the same developers who brought us The Exorcist: Legion VR, comes this absolutely terrifying early virtual reality experience that explores the different methods by which headsets can deliver some seriously scary experiences.

It’s a love letter to a variety of different types of genre films, and it shows its age, but A chair in a room is still one of the most effective VR horror experiences out there.

Wilson’s Heart – Rift

Wilson’s Heart isn’t directly trying to be a horror video game, which is why it’s so unnerving.

It’s a stylish horror film with genuinely scary moments, including VR’s most unforgettable jumpscares, but it’s all wrapped up in an interesting mystery with some fantastic character development.

We’re looking forward to adding new locations for Wilson’s Heart in the future.

The Persistence – PSVR, PC VR

Firesprite’s new VR game is a terrifying experience where you’re trapped inside a ship full of monsters. You must either kill them or avoid them at all costs.


If the very idea of that doesn’t scare you off, then this might be something for you. Randomized elements help keep things interesting every time you play.


And because it works well with traditional gamepads, The Persistence has a mechanical, refined edge over most of its competitors.

If you want a truly immersive VR experience, then this is worth enduring the occasional scare.

Alien: Isolation MothrVR Mod – PC VR

It may not be an official VR version of the game, but Alien: Isolation’s VR mod is so good that we had to include it here. Alien: Isolation is one of the best games based on the iconic sci-fi movie franchise to date.

You play Alien Isolation by evading Xenomorphs by any method necessary and the sheer sense that you’re hiding, looking behind corners, and trying not to be eaten alive is a fantastic thrill.

It’s really simple to install, so that’s always good news.

Affected: The Manor – Quest, PSVR, PC VR

Despite having been around for years and even though it was released long ago, the Manor still makes our list because of its sheer versatility.

Introductory VR Experience

It may look old but it still delivers a good scare and is an excellent introduction to VR for fans of scary games.


It takes less than an hour to complete the entire game, and it nails that sense that most VR horror experiences don’t really deliver.


It has been updated recently with a Gauntlet gameplay option as a sort of horror theme running through a series of haunted halls.

It’s fun to see if you can beat your friends by completing quests faster than they did. If you’re the kind of player who likes showing off VR to friends and relatives often, Affected should definitely be one of your Quest purchases.

Half-Life: Alyx – PC VR

Alyx isn’t a horror movie, but it certainly has its share of powerful and sometimes downright frightening scenes.

When we first heard about Alyx, we were afraid she’d be another Resident Evil clone. But after playing her for ourselves, we’re glad to say that she’s not just a copycat. She’s an original game that deserves a spot on our list of the best VR Horror titles.

Half-Life: Alyx – PC VR


There are lots of great VR horror games available today, but here are some we think are worth checking out. You might want to pick one up and see if it works for you.

If you’re into scary movies, then VR is definitely something you want to check out.
