Are you a child of the night who loves vampires and video games but rarely see the two together? Say no more night-dwellers because we've compiled a list of the top vampire video games that you can play with.
Whether you're a cave-dwelling Nosferatu or a classy romantic like Dracula, we all have a taste for the dark and the mysterious, but most of all the powerful. And I'm sure here are some games you'll enjoy.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. If not the one of the most underrated vampire games out there, then definitely one of the most underrated action-adventure games ever. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is developed by MercurySteam and Kojima Productions - published by Konami. The people behind the Metal Gear Franchise released this game back in 2010 and had only one sequel since then.
BloodRayne. A game that inspired a 2005 film should be on the list. It's an action-adventure game that follows the sexy and fierce damphir Rayne in the search for her father. Damphir is an offspring from human and vampire parents and neither one or the other but a hybrid of both.
Rayne does induce from you a bloodthirst that encourges you to kill. Whenever she drinks blood, she enters a state called Bloodlust where she becomes more violent and intensely powerful. If you drink more, she reaches Bloodrage which meant more power, more damage and ultimately highly addictive carnage.
Legacy Of Kain: Defiance. The Legacy of Kain has a massive story with several branches that weaves and bends into maze-like directions. It showcases the plight of three major races-vampires, humans, and Hyldens- each one wishes to control the world bearing their own versions of the prophecy. Defiance is allegedly the best one the series has to offer, but I suggest following the story from the start will give you a much more sating experience.
In Legacy of Kain: Defiance, you can take control of two powerful highly-evolved vampires, Kain and Raziel. Each one equipped with a legendery sword, they must fight the dark forces who wishes to end their world. In a game full of conflict and intrigue, the Legacy of Kain is surely one of the most loved video games out there.
Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines is every bit the vampire game I think every vampire fan has been waiting for- (or at least so far until DONTNOD’S VAMPYR comes out). It didn’t just deliver a new type of vampire game experience, it brought a different kind of RPG experience. It mixes and combines the elements of a traditional RPG game and the adrenaline-high of a first-person shooter.
As a fledgling, you are plunged deeply into the dark and gritty vampire underworld lifestyle of modern-day L.A. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines offer a variety of vampire powers and weapons that won’t leave the players bored. It has story-driven quests that even let you have your own choices. It’s truly a salute to what we imagine a vampire’s life would be in modern-day.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard DLC. Skyrim is not intended to be a vampire game but it is in a whole different level in itself. There’s just so much amazing things to do in Skyrim that a player will surely never get bored. And although the original game will have you encounter a few vampires here and there, the Dawnguard DLC lets you have a whole new storyline that revolves around the creatures.
In Dawnguard, you get to choose whether you’d like to be a vampire slayer or a vampire yourself. Of course you can only choose one, and whichever you choose will make the other hostile toward you. This DLC brings to the game an array of new weapons, amazing storyline, and powerful vampire powers – not to mention everyone’s favorite follower: Serena. (I’d marry her in the game if I could)
