Bloodborne
This action role-playing game by developer From Software is one worthy successor of their immensely popular Dark Souls series in terms of freakishly gruesome legion of enemies, savage level of playing difficulty and melee-based combat system.

Bloodborne takes players to the Gothic world of Yharnam where they took the role of a Hunter who takes the responsibility of clean the city of all beastly creatures that has been plagued it for some time while the Hunter seeks Paleblood for some unknown reason.

Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition
A top-down shoot 'em up game from Housemarque Climax Studios, this title has an average to favorable amount of reviews on its credential. Apocalypse Edition is an enhanced version for PS4 to enjoy the gory violence of zombie apocalypse in HD.

You can either play as Jack McReady or Scarlett Blake in a single-player mode or even pick both during co-op mode. Though Dead Nation mostly follows a typical story of a virus outbreak that starts an undead nightmare but the gameplay is quite satisfying when you see them getting massacred in an onslaught of blazing gunfire.

Soma
Horror works better from a first-person perspective and Frictional Games have probably figured that out before making the game. They even quirked some science fiction twist into the core of this survival horror, which saved it from being so generic of its kind.

You take control of lead character Simon Jarrett, who wakes up in an underwater research facility on the year 2104 after majority of humankind gets extinct by the impact of a massive comet. He then gets through horrors to get to fellow survivor Catherine Chun.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
This particular game from developer/publisher The Astronauts takes you in for a horror adventure that is set in an open world environment. Despite winning a BAFTA award in 2015, the game is heavily underrated even till date.

Focused on the adventures of paranormal detective Paul Prospero, players embark a journey to find a missing young boy named Ethan Carter in Red Creek Valley and what follows are the dark secrets of their family that threatens the life of everyone around.

Until Dawn
The best thing about Until Dawn is that you simply cannot see everything in it in just one playthrough and kudos to developer studio Supermassive Games for that. Aside from story and everything else, this mechanics increases the replay value for this horror adventure.

Just like many other Hollywood slasher films, the plot involves a group of friends goes for a holiday and things go wrong. Featuring an all-star cast like Rami Malek and Hayden Panettiere, trapped inside a remote cabin in the woods where they die one by one in goriest way possible by an unknown creature.
