My Halloween Scare Fest has been a big success today and I before I get started with this post I wanted to thank all of you for taking time out of your day to read and express your thoughts on what I’ve done today.
I didn’t expect the response to this random idea to be so great and it’s encouraged me to make this an annually thing. Next Halloween I’ll be reaching out to some of you to see if anyone would like to make the next Scare Fest a big collaboration project between bloggers. A lot of work went into this and it makes me really good that its paying off. I spent days writing down my ideas and a lot of hours jotting down my thoughts into review format and those top 10 list. To make everything easier to find I’ve decided to put everything in one giant post as well as some neat Halloween post that I read today from my former WordPress family! So let’s get this started…
Over the last few days I’ve written 8 reviews. 7 of them are game reviews and 1 of them is on the new Netflix show The Haunting of Hill House. I don’t usually write anything about TV or film because it’s my kryptonite. I struggle to find the right words to express myself and it’s the opposite when I’m gaming. Writing about video games has always been an easy process to me so that’s what I stick with. I also wrote my top 10 horror games of all time alongside my top 10 horror movies of all time. They took forever, but I’m confident in the choices that I decided to go with. Everything is listed down below with links (and a minor sentence or two) to the articles.
This game has everything going for it. It’s not perfect, but it’s one of the best horror games I’ve ever played and is definitely one of the most atmospheric ones too.
F.E.A.R. is a damn scary game. Alma is one of the best inventions in all of gaming history and I love going back to this series and playing through them again every Halloween.
Take everything I said about the first F.E.A.R. game and apply to this one. F.E.A.R. 2 is a disturbing masterpiece with excellent stage design and a creepy ass elementary school.
Little Nightmares is the shortest game on this list. It can be completed in a few short hours, but it’s totally worth playing through. It’s a unique game with a fantastic ending that’ll leave you wanting more.
Now here’s a classic. The game that started the Survival Horror genre has aged incredibly well and is still creepy as hell. This is one game I think everyone should play at least once.
Netflix has some awesome shows. The Haunting of Hill House is one of them. I binged all 10 episodes in a single day and even got my mother into it. It’s an awesome show and I highly recommend it.
These are my favorite horror games of all time along with a few honorable mentions. Give it a read :).
I wrote this alongside my top 10 games of all time. I’m a huge horror movie guy and decided to share my all time favorite horror movies with everyone.
These next two links aren’t officially a part of my Halloween Scare Fest, but they’re still horror related and one of the two games is an honorable mention in my top 10 horror games of all time.
Here’s that honorable mention :). I know two kinds of people when it comes to this game. You either hate it or you love it. I, obviously, love it. Which category do you fall in?
F.E.A.R. 3 didn’t make my top 10 or my honorable mentions, but it’s still a good game and a decent end to the series.
Here are those other post I mentioned earlier!
Not everything is good about Halloween. Kim from Later Levels listed all of the absolute worst horror games that she could find on Steam. I would much rather play something I mentioned above than any of the picks in her list. You’ll thank her later for saving you some money. Click here to read her list!
Do you need some ideas about what to wear tonight when you go trick-or-treating? Well Pix101 from shoottherookie has you covered! There are some really neat choices on this list, but I won’t spoil anything for you so just click here and see for yourself.
Nekojonez wrote a nice review on Angels of Death for the Nintendo Switch. The game sounds pretty interesting and I recommend giving his review a read. It’s well written and he always gives his honest opinion about the games that he decides to play. Click here for his review.
The Well Red Mage and his ever-growing group of writers listed their favorite horror games to play. I always enjoy my visits to his lovely blog and if you love long, I mean really long, reviews this is the best place to go. Click here for their favorite horror games!
And last, but certainly not least we have a great review from Mr. Panda on Flipping Death on the Nintendo Switch. Who says all horror games have to be scary? Flipping Death sounds like a damn good time and what I love about Mr. Panda is that you can either read his reviews or watch them on Youtube. Or you can do both! Click here for his review.
And that wraps up this year’s Halloween Scare Fest! I hope you enjoyed all of the content I released today and I’ll see you next year with another one. Happy Halloween!
