Top 10 best co-op horror games
There are many games in which trusting your teammates could be your choice but deceit is unique as it will have the trust factor in it by infecting a fraction of them with a virus and others who are left must try and find a way to escape the danger zone and go to safety, meanwhile others must stay safe from monsters and drink blood to be alive. When playing as an uninfected player you must take items on your way which can help you and you should decide to whom you should share them with.
While the innocent player will try to find weapons and other utilities to defend himself the infected one will be blood thirsty and that is how you should be sharp in order to find who the infected ones are! Making it more interesting is the blackout zone where the infected players transform into the monster they are and attack you and in the monster form you are more powerful than your victims so you must kill as many as possible during that period.

This game is a place where we are either playing against zombies or being a zombie and attacking other teams, let me explain it to you, so there are two modes in this never ending game, the first mode is campaign mode where 4 players can participate and have be safe in the city of new Orleans filled with a hoard of unlimited zombies and the second mode is Versus mode where 2 teams of 4 each where one team has to play the side of humans and another should play the role of zombie which makes it even more interesting and engaging!

Have you seen the movie Go Goa Gone ot the famous webseries the walking dead? So this is exactly what the game is! Let me explain it to you,
There is an island called banoi, filled with brain eaters aka zombies and this game will put you into that island now you will have to kill those zombies with the help of a friend in order to survive and escape from the horror of seeing yourself getting eaten by a zombie! The tension and the genre of horror makes the game out stand among other games of zombies, just like Vampire Knights Season 3!
GTFO is it the abbreviation of what you’re thinking? Yes it surely is!!
GTFO is a game which forces us to play with others as if you play alone you will pretty much hide in the corner for the entire game scared by the monster and even if there are players with you one time or another your weapons will get used and you will have to find something for survival.
This is a game where they make sure that you don’t have even a second to breathe or give rest to your hands, no matter how many guns or explosives you have nothing will save you unless you co ordinate with your team and make a perfect plan to complete the missions and “GTFO” of there alive!
9. The Forest
Just imagine you are on a flight with your son and a friend and suddenly it crashes in a forest and when you open your eyes you see a monster taking your kid away and there is nothing you could do. No supplies or food to survive or weapons to defend yourself from all the animals and monsters out there, what will you do?
The forest is the game making you think that way and now its your turn to make a camp to stay and traditional era weapons made with rocks and barks of trees and defend monsters 100 percent powerful than you from those weapons, come on atleast give me a machine gun is it what you all would be thinking right?
But if you need your son you have no other go! Kill them all to survive and experience one of the most interesting co op horror game ever made!!
10. Last Year: The Nightmare
Last Year: The Nightmare is a 6 player multiplayer game where five players will be humans and one player will be the killer, just like the killer-killer paper chit game we used to play in school remember?
Even here you won’t know who is the killer so you will have to team up with other 4 of your friends in order to save yourselves from becoming a monster and roaming in streets killing people. This game teaches us how to co ordinate with your team and defend yourself from becoming a prey of the monster.
