With October frightfully around the corner I thought I'd take a cue from forum member @Ghost and make a thread to discuss our favorite video games to break out for Halloween. I like to spend the candy corn and Jack 'O' Lantern days of October playing video games that are more spooky than normal, the ones that give chills and thrills and goosebumps although they don't actually have to be horror.

Please feel free to share your favorite games to celebrate Autumn and Halloween.

Some of my October favorites are:

Luigi's Mansion
American McGee's Alice Madness Returns
Persona 3 Portable
Persona 4 Golden
Lone Survivor
Castlevania Portrait of Ruin
Castlevania Lords of Shadow
Castlevania LoS Mirror of Fate
Castlevania Order of Ecclesia
Resident Evil Revelations
Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams
Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass
Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
Epic Mickey Wii
Borderlands 2
DmC
Bayonetta
Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix
BioShock Infinite
Shante Risky's Revenge
Mass Effect 3
Costume Quest
Maple Story
Dragon Nest

and last but not least is any Animal Crossing game.

Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass
Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess

Not Majora's Mask? I mean, masks are the main motif. What's more Halloween than that?
Except Costume Quest, obviously. Is Costume Quest 2 coming out this year?

Twisted Metal: Head On
Destroy All Humans, funny thing about this game I LOVE it, but I like to 100% games and since I can never find every single probe, I never get around to finishing it and restart whenever I get back to it lol
The Grim Adventures Of Billy & Mandy, it's a fighting game based of the cartoon, honestly very fun, though it's been a while...
Luigi's Mansion
Guacamelee


I don't have the time to play all of them, school and whatnot, but these are fun and I enjoy playing them around this time~
Tho I don't do well with actual horror games, I'm a wimp, god I couldn't get through Fatal Frame OTL

DmC? Jesus Christ dude, you want to spook these people not make them try to goddamn kill themselves.


Anyways, I really don't care for the horror game genre, but Five Nights at Freddy's is absolutely superb. Probably one of the better games in the past few years, Gone Home, Slender, and Amnesia 2 are really big let downs.


Also, Silent Hill.

Sadly, I don't own a Nintendo 64. I own PS3, PS Vita and a Wii. I'm going to buy the newly announced "New Nintendo 3DS" next year and I'm certainly one of those people hoping that Nintendo will release a remake of Majora's Mask on the 3DS next year. I used to own the original 3DS but I sold it last year boy am I sorry that I did because I saw where Legend of Zelda: A Link Between World's actually has Majora's Mask in it.

@CatAttacker, ROFL! I'm sorry man, I played DmC on the PS3 thanks to PS Plus and I sincerely enjoyed the game. I had a ton of fun playing it. It was the first Devil May Cry game that I've personally played and enjoyed. A lot of people also hate on the Capcom game 'Remember Me' but a lot of my friends and even some of my family members enjoyed it. I just wish Capcom would reboot Darkstalker's already; I miss those games.

@Step, Guacamelee is a awesome game. I've played some of it on the PS Vita and I'm gonna 100% finish it this Halloween.

If you have a Wii, you can buy it on the Wii virtual console \O/ Nintendo has started delisting games from the virtual console for some reason but I believe Majora's Mask is still available!

And yeah, I LOVED Guacamelee, wish it wasn't so short OTL

Costume Quest
Ghostbusters - A surprisingly well made licensed game.
Dead Space
Left 4 Dead 1-2
Alan Wake

Red Dead Redemption : Undead Nightmare - Western themed zombie DLC = spooky bliss
Dark Souls
Splatterhouse
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Fatal Frame 2
Stubbs the Zombie (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY68Tx5LHdo) - Slightly obscure Xbox game where you are a zombie trying to find your lost love. Lots of silly charm and creativity in this one.

Mass Effect 3? It's a horrible game, not a horror game.

No Dead Rising?

DmC is easily the worst Devil May Cry game. Gameplay wise it's a pretty terrible game.

You can get Majora's Mask on the GameCube and Wii as well.

Yeah, I understand that. My N64 gave out on me a few years ago. Right in the middle of Jet Force Gemini, too. I have to finish that one day. Luckily I got a copy of the Gamecube port, which is playable on the Wii. Feels weird without the N64 controller, but otherwise good.

Majora's Mask has been getting a little more love in the last few years than it ever has. Maybe the New 3DS will finally bring us that remake.

I highly recommend Master Reboot on the Wii U, it's a very weird-creppy game.
