25 Gifts for the Horror Fan

From Licensed Horror Collectibles to Remade Horror Game Classics

— December 16, 2018 — Tech
The gifts for the horror fan prove to be limited because, let's face it, the genre is often underrated or overlooked. That's okay — it's not for everyone. For those who enjoy sinister landscapes and scary narratives, however, there are plenty of games and fashion collections that embrace the grotesque.

The introduction of experiential technology literally reimagines the way users navigate through video games. By adding an extra real component through virtual reality, horror games truly reach a new level of terrifying. The complete immersion in scary fictitious narratives definitely amplifies gaming in a very exciting way. As a result, games like 'The Inpatient VR' — a prequel to the popular PS4 hit game 'Until Dawn,' have the potential to deliver an unparallel adrenalin rush.
