Five games to get you in the Halloween mood

Stick Skills: "With Halloween less than a week away, most of you are probably preparing for whatever nefarious festivities you have planned for the 31st. In celebration of the upcoming holiday for all things dark and mysterious, I've gathered together a list of five terrifying games to help get you in the mood for this holiest of horror holidays. To avoid needless repetition down worn paths, I've tried to limit myself to newer releases from this year you might have missed, spread across a variety of platforms. Enjoy." (Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, Outlast, PC, Slender: The Arrival, The Last Door, Year Walk)

My 5 would be:
-RE4 (el lago, yikes!)
-The last of Us
-Shadow of the Colossus (some colossi, and environments are just trippy to me)
-Far Cry 3 ( I have thalassaphobia, fear of anything under the ocean, and shark attacks are scary as all hell).
-Bioshock 1 (again, under the ocean).
Honorable mentions: Demon Souls and Dark Souls...lol, I'm a wuss!

If you want to really get scared, go for Shark Attack Deathmatch, or Fear 1 and 2, or Condemned 1 or 2.

My 5 would be:
Fear2
Amnesia
Dead Space
Silent Hill2
Condemned: Bloodshot

How could I forget dead space and Silent hill, or even fear (Alma!)?
Good list!
What about that Japanese game, Fatal frame?
Mega24  +   554d ago
@Fullmetalevolust Never got around to play it, maybe I should try Fatal Frame out!

I shall be playing Outlast.

Costume Quest!

It is a little cute and for every age, but it is pure Halloween goodness.

I've been playing Dead Island again, despite the terrible bugs I encountered on my first play through. Most of them seem to be gone, though I did notice one that's still there. It's mostly too bright and colorful to be a properly scary game, but I do like killing zombies.

Good list although I ran through Outlast and Amnesia on Friday 13th.

Gonna Play Guild Wars 2 Halloween event.

(Actually playing GW2 right now in preparation for OCt 29th)
