The Best Horror Games on Xbox Game Pass

Over 300 Ranker voters have come together to rank this list of The Best Horror Games on Xbox Game Pass

It's kind of a bummer there aren't more horror games on the Xbox Game Pass service, but that doesn't mean there aren't some good options. Let's take a look at the best horror games available on Xbox Games Pass, including shooters like Doom and zombie games like Dead Rising 2, which lets you kill zombies in new and creative ways.

If your horror interests require the most frightening of situations, you should probably check out a classic like 2002's Resident Evil Zero. If you're a fan of the series, but want to take on a prequel to the primary storyline, that's definitely the game for you. Other games like Id Software's Doom can be picked up and played without having played the original 1993 version, so don't feel as if you have to be a veteran to the franchise to enjoy this title. The new adaptation takes the classic look and feel, but gives it a AAA spin that makes it fun and gruesome to run across the landscape of Mars while shooting and pummeling the worst Hell has to offer!

Vote up the Xbox Games Pass horror games you'd most want other gamers to check out, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide to see which scary Xbox One games you should play next.
