For the creepy month of October, what better way to spend Halloween then with some spooky and scary videogames? Luigi’s Mansion 3 releases on October 30th and is certainly a great way to get into the haunting spirit. However, we still have a little wait to go yet, so here is a list of games to spook and scare you during Scaretober. The games are in no kind of order and shouldn’t be treated as a top 10.
Resident Evil 0 – 6 & Revelations I – II
Lets get probably the most obvious out the way. Undead hordes and creepy mansions, the Resident Evil series certainly has a way to keep players on edge as they traverse through narrow passageways with monstrous being lying in wait to ambush you. With almost the whole series on Nintendo Switch, you can practically experience the entire legacy of Resident Evil anytime, anywhere.
Layers Of Fear: Legacy
This game from Bloober Team definitely have me a few jumps. Played in the first-person perspective, players must navigate their way around a Victorian townhouse that contorts and transforms into a grotesque version of itself. The protagonist’s mental stability begins to deteriorate as his obsession to finish his magnus opus drives him to insanity and is haunted by the restless spirit of his late wife.
Slender: The Arrival
The Slender Man makes his debut on the Nintendo Switch with a port of the prequel title. The player must investigate the disappearance of their friend whilst being stalked by the omninous and malevolent entity that is the Slender Man. As you get closer to finding your friend, you will be more actively hunted by The Slender Man’s proxys and other entities.
Play as a young boy who finds an old book and begins to read it at the dark of night in his bedroom. The boy learns that he is not alone as he has inadvertently released magical creatures known as Urklings from their confinement within the book. The player must now finish reading the book whilst keeping an ever vigilant eye on his surroundings as the children-eating Urklings close in to devour you.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered
Just because it’s Halloween, it doesn’t mean you have to be scared out of your mind all of the time. Saber Interactive have faithfully revived the original Xbox 360 title, which features the original cast of the films who have provided their likeness and voices for the official video game. Join the Ghostbusters crew as the rookie and journey through New York and the Ghost World in a new story written by Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis themselves. Fans of the movies will enjoy the humour and the many references to the films.
