Halloween is next week and while most of us are still slogging through a back-log of games to try and get ready for Assassin’s Creed III, Halo 4 and the many other big games coming in the next few months; there’s still time to get some Halloween gaming in. Below are just a small taste of some highly recommended creepy games to get you in the mood to crap your pantaloons.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent - PC
I”m starting off this list with what is easily one of the scariest games ever made. Fans of Lovecraftian horror will be in for a treat and a hell of a lot of tricks in Frictional Games masterpiece of atmosphere and mystery. Amnesia is not for the faint of heart and easily not for everyone. Those looking for some light horror gaming may need to look elsewhere. For gamers looking to experience a slow and creepy descent into nightmare this is your game. Slap on some headphones, turn off the lights and prepare to be freaked.
Clive Barker’s Jericho - 360, PC, PS3
Before Mercury Steam produced the fantastic Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the studio started off this generation with an under the radar FPS horror title penned by the infamously twisted Clive Barker. Jericho pits a group of supernaturally gifted soldiers against Gods failed first creation called the Firstborn. The Firstborn was what we would call a big mistake, so much so that God locked the little bundle of dark godlike power away. Sadly, he’s been lonely and wants to break free and make humanity his finger puppets. Jericho deals with witchcraft, seriously dark occult and even even undead Nazis. It’s a gory and a creepy that ride that will have you squirming in your seat. It can easily be had for around $5.00 now on PC, 360 and PS3.
Dead Space - 360, PC, PS3
Dead Space 3 is hitting early next year but there’s no better time to catch up on the original than right now. Visceral Games Dead Space was a break out hit, and for good reason. Bringing together horror and sci-fi in a delicious combination that is as good as chocolate and peanut butter. Sure, Dead Space 2 is the stronger of the two Dead Space games, at least if you’re looking for more character in your… umm… character. As Dead Space 1 saw Issac being a mute dealing with a shitty situation but it really helped one experience the horror through your own eyes. There’s something about the first 20 mins of Dead Space that still sticks with me today. That moment of coming across a poor bastard who had gone mad literally killing himself by slamming his head on a blood stained steel wall. Yep, that’s a sound that sticks with ya.
Eternal Darkness - GameCube
Developer Silicon Knights good name isn’t nearly as good anymore but there was a time when Silicon Knights meant you were in for one amazing tale. Creators of the original Legacy of Kain series, Silicon Knights had experience with the supernatural but few could have known that their GameCube exclusive Eternal Darkness would to this day be a standard in Lovecraftian horror. Spanning thousands of years, Eternal Darkness tells the tale of a families fight against the ‘Old Ones’. The dark gods of old just waiting behind the thin veil of world to enslave mankind.
It also didn’t hurt that Silicon Knight pulled off some amazing things with the GameCube really pulling players in like having the volume turn off and on and video cut out making you think your TV was on the fritz. If you own a Wii, dust that bad boy off and get yourself a copy of this classic. If you’re a fan of Lovecraft, this is hands down one of the deepest uses of Lovecraftian lore in a game yet.
Costume Quest - 360, PC, PS3
Double Fine’s Costume Quest isn’t scary in the slightest but it is the best Halloween game ever. Charming and beautiful, Costume Quest is a treat of a Halloween game that just puts you in the Halloween mood and brings back memories of dark crisp autumn nights spent with friends trick or treating the neighborhood. It’s wickedly sharp writing and simple but enjoyable RPG system will last you a good 5 hours of enjoyment. I’d love to see Double Fine make a new Costume Quest adventure but as it stands; it’s a Halloween game that everyone can enjoy.
