Arizona Sunshine 2:

In this first-person shooter, you'll battle hordes of zombies with a variety of weapons, making it the least scary entry on our list. However, it still delivers tense moments, especially when you're exploring dark environments with a VR headset on. An upgrade from Arizona Sunshine.
