10 Must-Play Horror Games For Halloween

GameDynamo - "some horror titles stand out more than others, whether it's for what they've contributed to the genre, or just being able to give a great scare. Here are some that are simply must-plays, whether you're looking for something to get started with, or are a huge fan of the genre already." (Amnesia: Dark Descent, Catherine, Dead Space 2, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, PC, PS3, Silent Hill 3, Wii, Xbox 360)

I think they need to do an HD remake of Fatal Frame.

I was planning on buying the Silent hill HD collection to play through for Halloween (never played the original versions and playing on a ps3 so the issues probably won't be too off putting after the patch) but it turns out I'd been mistaking the original ps1 Silent hill on the eu store for the collection. I never played that either but i dont want to go THAT old school right now.

If my local crappily stocked game store doesn't by some miracle have it in stock tomorrow I'm gonna have to go for something else. I was thinking of Catherine but I really had my heart set on something darker and more atmospheric.

If you get it (try find the originals if you can) you can go ahead and play SH2 as it doesn't require SH1 to understand the plot. SH3 it is necessary as it follows on from SH1.
You should try SH1, sure it's really old but it's still considered to be very good

I was in the same boat, but I just finished silent hill 2 with no issues, they seem to have been fixed, but now I have to play 1 before I start 3. I just hate how they didn't include the original voices for the third one.

Thanks for the info folks. I probably will pick up the first game too at some point. It's not like I'm anti-PS1 or anything, I was gaming before that era. It's just that I wanted some genuine creepy scares for Halloween night and the first game might seem a bit too primitive to provide that. I probably will pick it up between 2 and 3 though.

I had terrible nightmare after playing Clock Tower when I was kid.
on the other side Catharine was a horror game ???

Did you see the evil baby and a$$ boss's.

Catherine is a fantastic game. Horror though? Subjective. I mean, it's about the pressures of marriage and children and dedicating your entire life to your partner, so yeah, it's scary in that sense.

So happy to see Clock Tower in the list, only game I've ever played that has seriously scared me.

I would have put Demento / Haunting Ground in that list alongside of Clock Tower seeing they are the same thing.
