Phasmophobia cracks open the paranormal jar, where you take on the role of a haunting investigator. Developed by Kinetic Games, players can either go on a solo investigation mission or team up with three other players. It flies close to Scary Movie, the film, only that the spooky encounters are cranked up to 100.

Your job is tied to a contract, where you must identify the particular ghost haunting each house. The game gives you devices to uncover paranormal activities. You can also communicate with fellow players and the ghosts. The game features twenty-four different ghosts, and you must gather enough evidence to deduce each type correctly.

Clearing the Zeds will earn you cash to purchase better weapons, armor, and upgrades to help you survive the onslaught. But be warned: the Zeds grow stronger with each wave, and new, more dangerous enemies will test your skills and teamwork at every turn.

8. Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a post-apocalyptic survival game that carries the mantle from its predecessors.

You take rounds, firing at each other until one person leaves the room alive. The Dealer starts the game by loading live and blank shells in no specific order. You both take rounds, firing at each other. Firing a live shell means one party loses their lives. However, if you fire a blank shell, you can play another round or forfeit your turn.
