Bloggers Wanted: They call me spooky

Don’t be afraid…

October is a rarity among months in gaming. Often, you can’t really think of a good game to pair with Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter, but you can certainly think of games for Halloween. It’s a time we turn our thoughts to monsters, ghosts, and survival. There are plenty of games out there that cover those bases.

Games have werewolves, vampires, aliens, endless waves of zombies, and all kinds of other horrors to deal with. Castlevania, Resident Evil, Eternal Darkness, Silent Hill and more are classic go-to games for this time of year. There are also regular encounters with the paranormal, supernatural, the secret and the unknown. It’s the kind of stuff Mulder and Scully would look into.

So this month, our Blogger’s Wanted topic is all about the spooky and perhaps even the “spoopy.” What are you favorite horror or horror-flavored games? What monsters do you like to mash? What games weird you out or tried to scare you but made you laugh instead? What games made you feel that creeping sense of dread?

The subject doesn’t really have to be a scary game, since Castlevania, Zelda, Devil May Cry, Shin Megami Tensei and more can be eerie or ghoulish without making you scream or jump. Or maybe they do since The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask certainly had its share of nightmare fuel and ReDeads are never fun to deal with.

Whatever route you choose to go with this in the Community Blogs, just be sure to use the prompt “They call me spooky,” the subtitle of your choice and apply the “Bloggers Wanted” tag.
