It's Been 8 Years And No Horror Game Has Even Come Close To Alien: Isolation

Alien: Isolation is the scariest horror game ever made, and it both surprises and baffles me how, since it launched way back in 2014, nothing has come close.

No developer, no matter how talented, has managed to match it in terms of pure, nerve-shredding terror—and I don't think anyone ever will. Isolation increasingly feels like a true one-off. A singular, special moment in video games that will never truly be replicated. But why does it work so well?

It's such a travesty that we don't have Alien Isolation 2.

Alien Isolation is a great game, but it's not the end all be all since its release. We've had many great horror games come out since.

Critics did not like this one, either. I bought Callisto Protocol today. 👌

Yep, the best horror game I've ever played. I can't think of a close 2nd. Dead Space I guess, but that's a very different experience.

Alien Trilogy is great as well and still holds up good even today.

tbh it doesn’t need a sequel. Fantastic game but not something to make into a long running series.

Good month imo. I'll play Gotham Knights and House of Ashes. I'm finishing up Disco E on Steam right now - that's a superb game.

House of Ashes was weird but one of the good weird ones! Really enjoyed it
