NowThis Nerd’s Andrew Rivera breaks down the history of slasher video games and makes the case for one of the best: ‘Friday the 13th: The Game.’

‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ is a big hit with gamers and horror heads everywhere. But ‘Friday the 13th’ is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to movie maniacs murdering their way onto our game consoles. Spanning from the Atari 2600 to the modern era, games based on slasher movies have been part of the medium since nearly the beginning. So strap on your hockey masks and sharpen your machetes, because we’re taking you on a peaceful camping trip through the history of slasher games.

From the 2600’s ‘Halloween’ game and ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ game to the ‘Friday the 13th’ NES game and ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ NES game, we’ll show you the humble 8-bit origins of killers like Michael Myers, Leatherface, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. Game systems didn’t have the guts to render the bloodshed of these classic horror franchises, but with today’s technology slasher games almost look better than the real deals. ‘Until Dawn,’ ‘Dead by Daylight’ and, of course, ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ are some of the greatest gory games in recent memory, and hopefully they’ll bring about ever scarier developments in the history of slasher games.

WILD RAGE June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Without a doubt Dead by Daylight Is a way better game than Friday The 13th in all aspects. Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, leatherface, Scream ghost face, Saw pig Amanda, stranger things Demogorgon all playable and coming soon pyramid head.

Jill McHale-Carrion June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

To many rip off slashers:/.

Jay Henderson June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

You forgot saw

LenWoke June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

you forgot about Terrodrome from the 2000s

Blaziken330 Games June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Yo imagine making this video before dbd released like 6 licensed killers

Luck June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Friday the 13th the game is not the best slasher game, dead by daylight is because it has much more to do and you can pick whether you want to be a survivor or killer

What is this? June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

7:51 that’s a mod

Super Bowl of self abuse June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

That's Franklin's wheelchair in the TCM game, not Grandpa's. (I know, such a small, unimportant detail…but…OCD)

Mattyfresh Universe June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

I play Dead By Daylight every week. I played FT13th once and stopped.

Rh 10035 June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

You guys forgot, Michael got his own game, not sure when but it was around 2001

Curby Dinobot June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

There was an Evil Dead game on the ps2

lmao madisen June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

what was the one Halloween game that was made in like 2015 maybe? if i remember correctly it was on pc.

Jayden Huapaya June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Halloween would be a good game, just like Friday the 13th,you get to choose your Micheal and the killer is obviously Micheal and he has to kill the survivors.

Amaron Tuipe’a June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

I played DBD before it’s good, but I like Friday the 13th even better!🗡🗡

The One June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Why does he look more like a girl than kiya ☠

Bruh_Arsene June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Hah, remember when insert slasher game was gonna beat dead by daylight? Boy, were they dumb

crazyfrogguy8 June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

It would be cool if they made more games like Friday the 13th but with different movies (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Scream, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, etc.). I know they already have these characters in DBD, but it would be neat to have a separate game based entirely around the character. Plus from what I've heard, DBD is horribly unbalanced and has a salty community.

CutiePieBio June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Dead by Daylight and Until Dawn are the best slasher games ever???

And also Friday the 13 best slasher game ever XD that game is DEAD XDXDXDXD

Sutton June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Ahh.. the classic purple Jason

Toms Brar June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

2015

Matthew Myers June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Terrordrome anyone

Dylan Atchley June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Friday the 13th the game is only fun as Jason while DBD is fun as bolth

Sebastian Spieker June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Freddy's character starts in mortal kombat 9

POOL’S CLOSED DUE TO CRONA AIDS June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

2:32. lori is gonna teabag him for hook camping. if the movie is anything like dead by daylight, no one is afraid of the killer

Rena Sorrell June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Dead by daylight sucks balls

WazBlu June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

we need a scream game!!!!!

nirmonculus June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

This reek of Friday the 13th sponsorship. Dead by Daylight is so much better because it is still being supported and movements aren't as clunky as F13. The variety of killers in dbd is so much better. Most streamers stream dbd and not F13. F13 is dead.

THE HOUSE June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

whats wrong with the song for halloween in 8-bit

ItzYow June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

the silent hill game and movie traumatized me for years

daddy spud and little spud June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

At least I can make the trapper look like Jason in dead by daylight

publicc_ty June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

2 best games I saw referenced the walking dead and pong

O-B-M June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

I'd love to see a Halloween game with the gameplay structure of Alien Isolation. I think Michael Myers would be terrifying in that format

Mirna Escalante June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

They now have the pig and Freddy also they have leather face

Lupe V June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

What about GMOD

Rybread 212 June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Costed*

Rybread 212 June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Is it bad that I have every game on the Atari 2600 no joke I swear it coded like 10k

Abram Sullivan June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Yeah I love video games,horror films and horror tv shows

el snarj June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

This dude is such a poser. Cringe…

el snarj June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

It’s not “Grandpa’s wheelchair from he movie,” it’s Franklin’s wheelchair. You know, one of the MAIN CHARACTERS of the original film. You know, the one you claim to- but haven’t- seen?

gaming isfun June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

I love until dawn

Adam O’Coin June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Big Chongus June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

I love dead by day light i have all the dlcs

Riad Bagirli June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Sorry but its on yr later and now Freddy , leather face and the pig from saw has been added along with Michael Myers. Sorry to say this but dead by daylight is kind of at its peak and no one really talks bout Friday 13th even though I really loved that game

ZerroTheWolf June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

The 2 Atari games are also very rare

peacemaker021 June 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

Dbd is honestly better
