Up until a couple years ago, multiplayer was most often a feature a developer would tack on to their game to help with sales. Nowadays, games like Dead Space 3 are finding creative ways to implement co-op, while the devs behind The Last of Us, Depth and Damned continue to innovate with their competitive offerings.
Multiplayer isn’t a bad word anymore, it’s becoming accepted by more and more horror fans.
I’ll always prefer to experience my spooky scary games solo, but I welcome this trend so long as developers continue invest time and creativity into finding inventive ways to incorporate multiplayer into their games.
Below are a half dozen horror games that we feel have done multiplayer right. Their modes are fully realized and only have a positive benefit on the game itself. We’ll leave it to you to decide which game did it best.
For the unfamiliar, The FEAR Awards is your chance to pick the best and worst horror games of the year. I’ll reveal a new category and its respective nominees every day until Jan 10. From there, voting will remain open until Jan 15, followed by a reveal of all of the winners on Jan 16.

Look, it’s a baby Quint. How cute.
Reddit user SutekhRising shared what is quite possibly the coolest baby bed in the world. Seriously, I dare you to find something better.
Some say this would be traumatic for the baby. I say, it gives adults a reason to have one.
The only thing that could make this cooler is if this were a photo of Steven Spielberg’s baby, which it’s not.
