The 10 best horror games for Mac

Ric Molina writes for Mac Gamer HQ, “There’s only one thing a self-respecting gamer should do this Halloween weekend: Play horror games.”

“And lucky you, when looking at the quality of horror games on Mac, you will notice one thing: The games are getting better and better,” Molina writes. “In 2015 alone, some excellent Mac horror games were released. There’re Outlast and Metro: Last Light Redux, and that’s barely the tip of the iceberg.”

“But fear not. This round-up is not limited to first-person shooters (although you can find the best ones here, if you’re a fan). It also includes adventure games, point-and-clicks and more. In fact, with so many great horror games out there, there’s definitely something for everyone,” Molina writes. “With Halloween around the corner, these scary Mac games are exactly what you need.”

MacDailyNews Take: Happy (day before) Halloween, everyone!


  1. I’m not much of a gamer. but:

    Slender: The Eight Pages. Now a freebie classic. Just beware getting nailed with adware when downloading it.
    – However, I prefer ‘SlendyTubbies’. Downloading it for OS X is a bit tortuous, but worth the effort. 😉

    Bioshock. Oh yes. It requires lots of hitting and shooting, which bores me. But it’s stupendous otherwise.


    • Amnesia (and its DLCs). It’s challenging and freaky.

    I also enjoy playing the ‘Silent Hill‘ series via Windows on Parallels Desktop. Nothing can touch it for horror, Japanese style. Also the first movie of the series based on the game is one of my all time favorites (although certain parties hate me for saying so). I’m a Christophe Gans fanatic. His adaptation digs deep into some wonderfully scary archetypes, alongside brilliant imagery and of course Akira Yamaoka’s intense music,
