G2A.COM  G2A News Features Games Where You Play As A Monster
If you are bored with the games where you are either required to kill some ugly and bad monstrosities, or you are forced to run and hide as their prey, this list is going to give you some examples of the titles which, virtually, put you in their shoes. Those games let you unleash your inner monster.
Deceit is a multiplayer survival horror where players connect in groups of 6, and need to survive in a dark and grim environment.
The group includes 4 ordinary humans and 2 infected ones. Both types of players have different objectives. The survivors need to cooperate in order to find out who is infected, and the infected’s aim is to kill all the survivors by taking advantage of the occasional blackouts.
The idea of the game is partly similar to Deceit, but now the monster is only one – and it is much more powerful! The survivors are also more capable of fighting him as they specialise in four different ways.
The cooperation in this game is more action-based. As long as Deceit was something more of a psychological manipulations, Evolve is pure action. Especially, when it is you who takes control over the monster!
Now, this is a completely different approach to what it means to be a “monster”. SPORE is a unique title which lets you control your whole population of “monsters” – various aliens and other extraterrestrial species.
From a single cell to a complex and developed society of various species. The uniqueness of SPORE made it highly popular in its genre. The game generally presents you with no limits, so you can feel the freedom of this God-like simulator.
Zero is a small alien monster who needs to escape a lab filled with guards and scientists. You need to help him solve various puzzles and make it safely to the exit.
The game lets you play in two different ways. You can either move stealthy and avoid direct contact with the enemies, or you can wreak bloody havoc and kill everybody on your way out. The choice is yours.
Although the game is quite old now, it can’t be denied that it is somehow unique. Here, you take control over your crew of ghosts, phantoms and various monstrosities in order to sow fear in the hearts of the mortals.
The game puts you in the shoes of the title “Ghost Master” – you are in the total control of the team of terrors. You can grow your squad by freeing new spirits in certain missions, and you can also buy your “soldiers” new abilities so that they would be even scarier!
