Top 5 Scariest Games To Play Around Halloween

The month of October is probably the greatest time of the year. Why? Because this is when the air gets a little cooler, pumpkin beer is put on shelves, and there is a huge increase in talking about horror films. I love horror films and subsequently, I love horror related games. Movies are a different kind of horror compared to video games, though, it’s passive and the viewer is forced to see the events unfold as the director wanted. With a video game, the player takes part in the horror; they have to decide what to do and figure out how to react to scary situations. It’s not only visceral, it’s interactive and therefore, it can affect you on greater scale.

I’m here today to talk about five games that you should play around this time of year because not only will they scare the shit out of you, but they are also solid titles to play. Like those old horror films you are pulling out of the closet, maybe it is time to revisit these titles and remember what it’s like to squirm. (Condemned 2: Bloodshot, GameCube, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, Xbox 360)

The selection is fine, but it would have been awesome to see Slender or Amnesia: The Dark Descent on there though.

>The selection is fine

Since when was Bioshock and Dead Space scary? Even Resident Evil 4 is pushing it.

actually, i think DS had great use of sound, it made this game really scary:)

Since it is about personal taste, that's when.

I dont think they're scary ether....but then again, i started playing Resident Evil 1 and 2, and Nightmare Creatures when i was about 8....lol, so its really hard for a game to frighten me!!!! buuuuuuut i found out when i showed my girlfriend Bioshock...that she didnt wanna play it at night time in the dark because she thought it was scary...then i asked friends on myspace (or facebook....cant remember that far back) who thought it was a scary game....A LOT did lol!!!

Dead Space on the other hand ;) stop acting tough dude...you know that game got your blood pumping!!!!! lol

Dont forget any of the splatter house games.

No siren: bloodcurse??? That's a great game and possibly one of the best horror games I've played
srcBFMVBMTH  +   777d ago
Agreed, Siren: Bloodcurse was an EXCELLENT horror game! Really hoping Team Siren from Japan Studios make a follow up to that game with a good budget. It could just be what the survival horror genre needs.
Steven21  +   777d ago
I could go for better controls with a new one though. That was the one thing I hated about playing it. The controls were brutal
eferreira  +   776d ago
How are you enjoying that amazing browns season lol. You guys need a new qb.
Steven21  +   776d ago
No way! Weedon is a beast! He's thrown for 300 yards 3 times this year already. They need joe Haden back badly though. Hopefully they don't go 0-16

I love Eternal Darkness SR. If Nintendo brings a sequel, that would be a strong argument to make me buy a wii u

No Fatal Frame? What is this.
destroysuperman  +   777d ago
I never liked the mechanics of FATAL FRAME. Not a bad game, just not fun for me to play.
Tiqila  +   777d ago
Silent Hill 2 and Amnesia
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   777d ago
As usual, Resident Evil 4 over Resident Evil Remake.....

I never thought RE4 was all that scary. Tense and suspenseful, sure, but not scary.
I mean cmon, a midget dressed like napoleon seemed more comical than frightening.
destroysuperman  +   777d ago
I almost put RE ZERO!
ballzdeep  +   777d ago
The original Condemned for the 360.
Horror done right, especially mid way through.
