Wondering how horror content would look like on VR? Well then, here’s a game to accommodate your needs. Don’t tell me I scared you off, but I’m just trying my best to showcase the best VR games.

If you’ve got an HTC Vive VR headset, you could experience this game. The Brookhaven experiment is a 360-degree horror survival game. Make no mistake, it’s not a high-tech survival game, you’re equipped with a basic gun, a flashlight, and a melee weapon. Unlike other flashlights in-game, this one has got a limited battery. So, you’ll have to manage the battery well in order to see through the pitch dark environments.
