Everyone has different types of games that they love, and certain games will rub people different ways. Some people play games casually and some people play games for the story, but these 5 games will make you sit on the edge of your seat at all times, driven forward by excruciating anticipation.

5. 'Beyond Two Souls'

Beyond Two Souls is a game that has a very strange start. It's hard to get into but really starts to get going after the first hour. The great thing about this game is how intriguing and different the main character Jodie is. The game requires the player to move and guide Jodie into interactions with objects and other non-player characters in the scene to progress the story. The player primarily controls Jodie through the in-game environments. At almost any time, however, the player (or second player during a two-player game) can switch to control Aiden instead. Aiden, as an incorporeal entity, exists permanently in no clip mode and can move through walls, ceilings, and other obstacles; however, he is limited to moving only within a certain radius around Jodie due to their spiritual tethering.

4. 'Heavy Rain'

Now Heavy Rain is a complete feel fest. Throughout the game you will control multiple main characters and everything you do makes a difference on the outcome of the game. The dialogue in Heavy Rain is really one way it shines, and will make you twist and turn at every moment hoping you don't screw anything, or anyone, up.

3. 'Wolf Among Us'

The Wolf Among Us hit me really hard in the brain because this game literally takes everything you do into account. You play as Bigby Wolf (a.k.a. the Big Bad Wolf) in a secluded section of a city with other cast members of popular fairy tales. Murders are happening all around you and you have to solve the crimes as a detective. Whether you want to be a complete dick, or be a good guy is up to you.

2. 'Life Is Strange'

Life is Strange is one hell of a crazy emotional ride. You play as Maxine, who is just some girl who is obsessed with photography. One day during a terrifying event, she discovers she can rewind time and change outcomes of daily life. This game is more of a slice of life game but things do get crazy as hell. Along the way you'll fall in love with a lot of characters and come to hate a lot, too.

1. 'Until Dawn'

Until Dawn is my favorite of the entire year for multiple reasons. For starters, you play as seven different friends throughout the entire game at a lodge during a party. Little do you know that a prank will result in a horrible accident. The next year the seven friends come back to honor the horrible accident by partying even harder, but little do they know that things are about to become hell for them when a killer is outside. This game destroyed my nerves because at any time in the game any of the characters can die during quicktime decision-making. Literally all the characters can die and there is no saving or going back unless you start the game over again. You cannot play this game in one sitting or your nerves will explode. Never ever has a game made me feel the way Until Dawn did and I couldn't recall a better game suited to thrill seekers.

Which games make your pulse quicken? Are any of them on this list, or do you have your own game go-tos?
