Who would have ever thought people would love to sit down and watch others play video games? This has become a very popular thing throughout the years and it has become the rise of many Youtube stars. One Youtube star started with one playthrough of a series called Amnesia and now has over 11 million subscribers. Markiplier is the man that I am talking about. Love him or hate him, he is living the dream of playing the latest video games. But he especially loves the horror themed video games. Here is a list of my personal favorite of his. If some of you that don’t know what playthroughs are they are videos of someone playing the whole video game. So yes, if you click on the video you will see SPOILERS. To find out more about the games that I mention, click on the game titles!
- Evil Within: Is one of the most craziest games and really makes you think a lot. He has many parts to this video so I highly suggest watching this when you have the time.
- Silent Hill P.T: This is my all time favorite game (even though it is just a preview) and we will probably never see the actual game. But this is a fun one. Mark takes awhile to get a hang of it but the graphics are out of this world.
- Amnesia: I personally haven’t finished watching all his videos in the Amnesia series but my friend told me this is a must have. This is another long series and one of Markiplier’s first games he had uploaded. Also he plays custom maps from the series that other gamers made.
- Crooked Man: Is my favorite RPG game. It’s creepy. The story line is insane and the song will be stuck in your head, “There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.” The Crooked Man, you play as David Hoover, a troubled single man who just bought a new apartment with the help of his two friends, Paul and Marion. Soon, he realizes that there may be something wrong with the place.
- Five Nights At Freddy’s: Everyone knows the plot of this. You have to survive the night with some freaky, demonic robots. These videos of Mark became HUGE and went viral.
- Layers of Fear: So the plot of this one said by Steam: “Layers of Fear is a psychedelic horror where you take control over an insane painter in his quest to finish his magnum opus. Heavily inspired by the masterpiece paintings from the past centuries, and the architecture and décor from the XIX century.” I love this one. The plot keeps you at the edge of your seat and you keep finding out more and more about your character’s history.
