HP Bonus 4 (Horrific Moments in Non-Horror Games)

John and Robert each pick a non-horror game with a horror moment. The games they choose are not horror games, but each have a moment within the game that turned out to be quite scary.


Halloween 2016

As usual the Horror Play crew mixes it up for Halloween. Rather than rating another game, Robert, John, Adam, and Amber get together to rerate both Slender: The Arrival and P.T. Both games are tied atop the Horror Play Scariest list and that must finally come to an end. Through general discussion and some point/counter-point arguments, find out which game will be crowned the true winner (so far...) of the scariest games that the HP crew has played.


Horror Play 47 (Ghostbusters)

Some call it the unoffical 3rd movie, some call it a disappointment. We've played the 2009 Ghostbusters video game so you don't have to. How does it stand with the rest of the Ghostbusters titles? Is the game scary? Find out on an all new Horror Play Podcast.


Horror Play 26 (Serena)

The HP crew explores a desolate cabin for their wife serena. Serena is a Kickstarter-funded PC game that brings back the old method of point-and-clicking. Will we find Serena? Why can't we leave the cabin? Why is it so dirty? Find out here!


Horror Play 22 (Year Walk)

Year Walk isn't the easiest game to describe. It's cartoony, it's creepy, it's part side-scroller, it's first-person, it's adventure, it's full of puzzles, it breaks the fourth wall, and to acquire the full back story you must beat the game.If you're looking for a short indie game that's haunting this is the game for you. We play it this week to find out if it's haunting nature is truly scary.


Horror Play 20 (White Noise)

White Noise is a game that sees a player running around a map, looking for eight items. In this game, you look for eight tape recorders. What could be considered a fun Easter egg hunt, is actually much more menacing,since a monster is hiding in the shadows, ready to pounce. We try not to compare this game to the highly regarded Slender series, but it turns out to be tougher than we expect.


Horror Play 17 (The Stanley Parable)

You are Stanley. You work in an office. You decide to leave the office one day and explore. The narrator helps guide Stanley around, but it's up to you whether you want to listen to the narrator or deviate off course. You end up finding that the office is more than just an office. The Stanley Parable is a popular indie game that some may call more an experience rather than an actual game. There are no wrong choices.We play this experience, and while not truly horrific, we rate it anyway!


Horror Play 16 (Alien: Isolation)

Alien: Isolation is the newest Alien game to hit shelves, and with the Alien franchise having a shitty track record when it comes to videogames, we proceeded cautiously. We took control of Amanda Ripley (Ellen Ripley's daughter) and made her traverse dark hallways full of baddies, from androids to face huggers! But let's not forget the biggest threat: A full-grown Alien! Join us as we dissect what could be the scariest game we've played yet. All aboard the Sevastopol!


Horror Play 14 (Home)

Home can best be described by its subtitle: A unique horror adventure. This is unlike any game we have played. The game could be considered more a mystery than a horror game, but it still has the ability to instill a sense of dread when exploring the different horror-inspired environments. A side-scrolling adventure that sees players taking control of a nameless man who awakens with no recollection of what has happened around him. Finding clues and weapons helps the protagonist draw...


Horror Play 12 (Deadlight)

Like side-scrolling adventure games? What if there were zombies? Deadlight is like a horror Super Mario adventure... Okay maybe not really but you see what I'm getting at. Set in Seattle, in 1986, Deadlight has you taking control of Randall Wayne as he goes searching for his family. I know what you're thinking, side-scrolling games can't be scary! Maybe not, but how will you know for sure unless you listen to our podcast!


Horror Play 11 (Slender: The Arrival)

A somewhat sequel (or better yet, re-imagining) to the free downloadable game of the same name (although this one has a new subtitle). Slender: The Arrival finds you taking control of Lauren, a silent protagonist in search of a missing friend. But these woods and corridors hide more than just the tall monstrous meme known as Slender man. Is this the scariest game we have played so far? Let me put it this way: All four of us played this game together and all four of us screamed at one time...


Horror Play 5 (Outlast)

Kyle can't make it for this episode and Cody has joined the army! Don't worry! John and Robert take the reins and steer this podcast in the right direction with newly-found guest Tyler. So what is Outlast? Miles is a freelance investigative journalist who has just received a tip about some weird experiments being conducted at Mount Massive Asylum. So like any good horror game protagonist, he goes to investigate... ALONE! We take control of Miles in this recently released horror game to see...


Horror Play 2 (Slender)

Inthis episode, John, Kyle, Cody, and Robert discuss and rate the free PC game Slender: The Eight Pages. A short game with a terrifying enemy, Slender is a unique gaming experience. Slender gets its name from the horrifying villain known as slender man: a tall, suited, no-faced stalker who kidnaps and kills children (and in this game YOU!). We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of this free PC game and rate its scariness. Is it scarier than The Last of Us?? Listen, and find out!!!...

Horror Play 1 (The Last of Us)

Inthe first ever episode, John, Kyle, Robert, and Cody discuss and rate PS3's 2013 hit The Last of Us. The Last of Us has been praised as not only one of the best games of 2013, but one of the best games on the PS3. We sit down to discussour likes and dislikes, and find out just how it ranks on the "scariness" level.Some may not think this is a true survival horror game, but that's up for debate.
