Here are the best survival horror games you can play right now. Y'know, between bouts of hiding behind the sofa...

Resident Evil Village is an enjoyable, occasionally silly monster hunt that is often hugely entertaining. Some of the boss fights are utterly ludicrous, though.

7. Resident Evil Village

Platform(s): PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC

A sci-fi classic with groundbreaking AI. In this terrifying survival horror, H.R. Giger's monster can't be defeated, only hidden from, while it can even learn from your behavior.

6. Alien Isolation

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC

Amnesia is a Lovecraftian tale where you wake up on the floor of a castle with no memory of where you came from. The graphics may be dated, but few games have an atmosphere this suffocating.

5. Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC

True to survival horror form, batteries are scarce in this asylum-based survival horror. The juice in your journalist's camera may be low, but the jump scares certainly aren't.

4. Outlast

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC

This spooky sequel has much greater freedom in its map design than the first Evil Within, with more areas to explore and more ways to advance through a level.

3. The Evil Within 2

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

After the more action-oriented Resident Evil 5 and 6, Resident Evil 7 firmly re-roots the series in survival horror. The switch in direction is deliberate, grimy, and super effective.

2. Resident Evil 7

Platform(s): PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC

Ambitious, disruptive, and brave, The Last of Us 2 set a new bar for video game storytelling by bulldozing your hopes and affections. It's also absolutely terrifying in places.

1. The Last of Us Part 2

Platform(s): PS4, PS5
