10. The Park
The Park isn’t a long experience – it’ll take you around two hours to complete – but it’s two hours that will be filled with tension and scares.

It’s sinister,and it’s got atmosphere in droves; if you’re a fan of the genre, this is a horror game on PS4 worth picking up.
On the night of 2 February 1959, a group of nine hikers mysteriously met their demise on Kholat Syakhl in the Ural Mountains in Russia. Discovering that the tents they had erected had been torn from the inside out, investigators surmised that they had been trying to escape from an imminent threat, although the injuries sustained by the unfortunate hikers left them perplexed as to what that threat could have actually been.
Narrated by the legendary Sean Bean, Kholat has you retracing the steps of the nine ill-fated hikers in an attempt to discover once and for all what actually happened to them. In doing so however, you’re set to place yourself in similar peril. With no way to defend yourself, you’re going to have to rely on your wits and your map reading skills to see Kholat through to its chilling conclusion. Good luck!
