    "Cannibals on a deserted island usually spell "gorefest" for me, not a horror game with creepy-ass tribesmen. And if you think you've gotten used to it, prepare thine self for the sewn-together bodies of people, walking around like a muh'ffin spider and making noises that would keep you awake at night. Overall, this game is PERFECTLY executed, despite what the other guy below me says."

    "Outlast is an almost five year old game but if you think that has stopped it you would be wrong. Do you like journalism, asylums, and stealth? Then this is the game for you. Content in the game are based on real world events and places and in my opinion that is a awesome feature. Plus, you do not fight! That's correct, as a journalist (the protagonist) you must run, hide, and sneak you way through the game. Definitely something different from what you can play in the mainstream. So if you are looking for survival horror I recommend you check out this game. "

    "This is one of my favorite games of all time. It is not necessarily Halloween-themed, but it is a dark game that would be perfect for any occasion, including Halloween. There are lots of different monsters you must fight off with your tears. All of the levels are randomly generated and every play-through is different due to the hundreds of different items you can pick up. Awesome game."

    "Used to play this game a lot as a kid and it still doesn't get old. Though not as scary as the other ones on this list, it still holds that retro vibe, plus the fact that the environment is creepy enough by itself."

    "If you're looking for a scary game to play (especially on Halloween) then it won't get much better than Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. As with all of the prior Resident Evil games, Biohazard continues on the tradition of scary and engrossing gameplay. One of the reasons this game is so good is that it is a survival horror game, which forces you to get into the mindset that you need to think long term. It's not just about killing zombies, you need to plan out what you are doing and find resources in order to make it from one day to the next. Awesome game, turn off the lights and turn up the volume and get ready to be scared."

    "Amnesia is a fun and scary game to play in the dark on Halloween. It is a first person exploration game where you cannot attack and you have to run and hide from enemies. There are a lot of scary events in the game and the atmosphere is very tense and frightening. It is great for Halloween if you want to be scared."
