If you can’t get enough Walking Dead, you’re in luck. The first two seasons of the game plus the Michonne spin-off are all on Game Pass. The narrative adventure offers plenty of scares and great characters.
The original Resident Evil is a pillar of the survival horror genre, but the series moved toward straight-up action after. Resident Evil 7 brings the horror back in the franchise’s scariest game yet.
