Reminder: Win a new PS3 courtesy of FEARnet!

Halloween puts me in a good mood every year — a whole holiday just dedicated to being scared. It’s like heaven to me! The folks over at FEARnet know how I feel, and they provide the kind of horror goodness I love 24 hours a day. So when they said they wanted to do a giveaway on Destructoid, well, I was pretty down for it.

To celebrate what they call FEARtober (look after the jump for more details on that), they have given us a huge Grand Prize to give away, which includes an 80GB PS3, a copy of Fallout 3, Resistance 2, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, and a signed poster from the cast of Fear Clinic, which is FEARnet’s newest online series. That ought to keep you busy inbetween passing out candy to trick-or-treaters!

We will also choose five first prize winners who will get one game of their choice from a limited selection (Fallout 3 (PS3), Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (PS3), Resistance 2 (PS3), Left 4 Dead (Xbox 360) or Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360)) and a signed posted as well. In other words, six total chances to win, and the contest is open to all countries. So what do you have to do to win this stuff?

Hit the jump to go to the comments and tell me what you think the best horror game of all time is and why. As you may have gathered from my choice of header picture, mine is Silent Hill 2. I’d tell you why, but I’m not eligible to win so I’ll leave it to you! If you want to write an essay, a song, make a video, whatever, feel free to do it. The contest runs through November 2nd at midnight EST. Good luck — this seems like a good reason to replay some old favorite horror games, doesn’t it?

[Update: Winners were announced here!]

FEARnet, a leading horror site featuring streaming movies, original series and more, has launched FEARtober, a month-long celebration of everything Halloween.  New programming and content will premiere each and every day, including original episodes of Streets of Fear, the return of the how-to series Tricks of the Trade, Route 666: America’s Scariest Home Haunts, a “killer” Pumpkin Palooza by the legendary master sculptor Russ Leno, and more than 50 cult favorite full-length fear flicks.  FEARtober culminates with the premiere of Fear Clinic, starring Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street franchise), Danielle Harris (Halloween franchise) and Kane Hodder (Friday The 13th franchise).  Fear Clinic, which explores where patients go to be cured of their most dreaded phobias by undergoing a revolutionary treatment no insurance policy would ever cover, will premiere Monday, October 26th, with new episodes premiering for five consecutive nights.  View all of FEARnet’s FEARtober content online at
