What is a reverse horror game? In this list, we’re looking at it in a few different ways. This is a collection of titles in which players play as monsters, villains, or anti-heroes. You will find games where you believe you are the only hero to get to the end of the game and realize that the whole time you are the real mastermind of a catastrophic conspiracy. With that said, be cautious as there will be a lot of spoilers ahead. The reverse horror games list is also not ranked in any particular order.
The Sopranos Road To Respect
Sopranos is a breakout hit TV series. Everyone raved about this show and it helped inspire so many other TV projects that followed. However, no one really talked about the game as it wasn’t all that well received. In this title, players will pick up a story based on Bonpensiero’s son, taking on a role in the mafia under Tony Soprano.
Here, players are working their way through the ranks while the overall game is more narrative-focused and the results are linear. However, the game still uses the same actors for the voice acting and it is praised for its acting. Meanwhile, the game revolves around the mafia aspect of the game, while the TV series does about the family side of things affected by the criminal life.
Stubbs the Zombie – reverse horror games
Stubbs The Zombie In Rebel Without A Pulse is one of the pretty famous video reverse horror games. Players will take the role of a poor traveling salesman in 1930 who falls in love with a girl. However, when her father found out about this, he killed you and threw your body in the wilderness. Years later, Stubbs rises from the grave as a zombie, searching for his true love.
This requires players to essentially stick their teeth in the flesh of innocent civilians wandering around. The more infectious you are, the better your chances of taking over and finding the girl. It’s a quirky game and although Stubbs may be in love, he has a funny way of expressing it by turning the town into a zombie frenzy.
Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3
In 1994, Warrior took over Super Mario Land with its own video game. The villain is on a mission to protect a massive castle that’s more impressive than Mario’s. However, in order to have money for the castle, Wario sets out to an island where pirates are said to have stolen a large gold statue of Princess Peach, which Wario intends to steal and sell back to Mario.
It’s an eccentric side-scrolling platformer that behaves pretty much like Super Mario. However, there are a number of different minor powers that Wario has, such as knocking down enemies by rushing at them.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
Hyrule Warriors brings the gameplay of Dynasty Warriors while focusing on The Legend of Zelda franchise. Set in Hyrule, we get a look at an intense battle against hordes of enemies while iconic characters help keep the world safe from the likes of Ganondorf.
The reason we have this game on our reverse horror games list is the fact that in the game you can actually play the role of Ganondorf. Of course, there are some hoops you have to jump through to unlock Ganon Calamity. Now if we could get a game that revolved around playing as Ganon from start to finish.
