Games Like Last Year
Hmm, he doesn't seem friendly...

Ever wanted to play a game again but didn’t want the same exact experience? Well, lucky for you, we have gathered some games that will give you the same feel as those games you’ve missed so much while also giving you an entirely new experience. Here are 10 games that may feel somewhat familiar but are still unique in their own way.

10. Deceit

Deceit is a multiplayer first-person shooter that’ll test both your instincts and your perception.  Players play in a group of up to 6 survivors who try to escape from a strange, unknown area. Everything would be cut and dry, if not for the fact that one or two members of your group is trying to kill everyone. You must either escape or try not to be the slowest runner in your group. Or maybe, you’re the one they should be watching out for . . .

That's your friend btw

9. Secret Neighbor

An all-too-creepy game, Secret Neighbor is a social horror game where you play as a kid in a group that sneaks into a house attempting to infiltrate the basement while thinking your neighbor is away. It’d be an easy task – except for the fact that one of your “friends” is the neighbor in disguise! Will you and your friends make it to the basement before he snatches you all up?

If he catches you, you're gone

8. SCP Secret laboratory

A multiplayer horror game, SCP is based on its own creepypastas. Players are allowed to play as one of 5 roles: laboratory prisoners, nine-tailed fox (a security team, not the anime), scientist, an unidentified SCP object, or as foundation traitors. The facility and roles are generated at random at the start of each game, so it makes for an interesting playthrough each time. The winner is determined by whoever finishes their designated tasks first.

Play as one of several Jason style options where you have a multitude of executions at your disposal. From slamming those annoying hormonal kids down on a tree stump to squeezing the life out of them with your own hands, this game is a thriller for everyone. It’s a heart racing experience from start to finish.
