10 best scary Roblox games

I know a guy.

Horror is a staple across every form of media. For some reason, people just love getting scared. Roblox, a series of games under the guise of another game that’s actually just a hub or aggregator, has no shortage of spooky, scary games to enjoy. However, since anyone can develop and publish a game on Roblox, there’s a lot of refuse to shovel through before finding a gem. Here are 10 of the best scary games on Roblox.

What are the scariest games on Roblox?

I should preface this with the disclaimer that I’m not an avid Roblox player. I’ll play every now and then, but tycoon simulators are more my jam. So, I turned to the resident Roblox expert in our house, my 10-year-old son, who has been playing all manner of Roblox games for years. The following information is straight from him and he has been adequately compensated with Robux for his participation.

The Storage

Residence Massacre

What is the game about?
“It’s a multiplayer game where you have to survive ‘Larry,’ a creature that has arms that are like giant blood spikes. You have to do tasks around the house, like keeping the generator pumping air in the house. You have to keep the power up. It’s basically, just like, a big game of Hide and Seek around the house. But if he finds you, you die. When he’s entering the house through the windows, you turn the lights on to scare him away. And you barricade the house and set up cameras outside.”

Why is it scary?
“It can be single-player or multiplayer. You don’t know what’s behind every corner. You have to prepare for him before he comes. He can break the barricades and come inside the house. He can break the power box and you have to go outside and fix it.”

The Intruder

What is the game about?
“Surviving a shapeshifter for a night.”

Why is it scary?
“There are different levels you have to complete to move on and you have to check the cameras. They can be, like, he comes into the room or you see him and you have to run from him. At the mall, after you survive the night, you’re met with a police officer and you explain the shapeshifter to him, and the police officer said that he could mimic the voices of other people when he killed them. He mimicked a boy’s voice and the police department thought it was a prank call.”
