10 things to enjoy for your gamer Halloween photo
10 things to enjoy for your gamer Halloween
by SeymourDuncan17

[Dtoid community blogger SeymourDuncan17 suggests 10 delightfully spooky things for gamers to enjoy this Halloween.  Give it a read and throw your suggestions in to the comments.  Let's all share what makes us shiver!  Want to see your own stuff appear on the front page? Go write something! --Occams Electric Toothbrush]

Over the years, I've gradually become the kind of person who enjoys Halloween in a passive sense. I no longer dress up and heckle the neighbors for candy (and then more candy), I'm no party-goer, and I don't really make much of a deal about it at all.

I do, however, still absolutely love seeing others enjoy it. Seeing what stupid decorations they've cooked up for this year, seeing children adorably try to pass themselves off as their favorite creatures or superheroes, and, above all else, hearing the single greatest holiday tune grace my local radio once more. (If more Christmas jingles were this fun, it would be a much less depressing holiday. I'd rather hear "Monster Mash" on repeat for hours than listen to just 30 seconds of "Jingle Bells.")

Well, if you are the kind of person who likes to make an event out of Halloween, with friends or just yourself, by marathoning spoooooooky shit, then have I got the shit for you. Churned out for your pleasure like a giant candy corn pumpkin, so make sure you don't take it in all at once. Save those cavities for Halloween night.
