Halloween Game Recommendations

Postby VideoGameCritic » September 24th, 2014, 10:41 pm

It's about time for me to post my updated Halloween special, and during this time of year I ask people to recommend their favorite Halloween-themed games.

I have a few in my review queue right now:
Geist (GameCube)
Sphinx (GameCube)
Chainsaw Lollipop (360)
DMC (360)
Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles (Wii)
Goosebumps (Wii)

As general recommendations I would go with 
- Alan Wake (360): played this a few years ago and loved every minute.
- Splatterhouse (T16): Slasher film in a game
- Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES): Spoofs so many classic horror films.
- Silent Hill (PS1): Probably the single scariest game I've ever played.

I know you haven't reviewed it yet, but you should really review Majora's Mask and include it in your Halloween Special. I'm curious to see what you think about it. A lot of people nowadays actually prefer it over Ocarina Of Time, myself included.

Nice laundry list, Vexer. 

Logan! You post too infrequently these days. I second your nomination of Majora's Mask, which is quite possibly the best Zelda ever made.

I think a review of Costume Quest would be ideal for Halloween.

It's a group of kids in their costumes for Halloween that fight monsters.  Their costumes 'come to life' and give them powers to take on creepy crawly stuff.

A few different selections that I thought I would throw out there, and
not to sound like im on a walking dead kick, but there is walking dead
pinball, survival instinct, telltale games season 1 and 2.

the darksiders series of games, how can you go wrong getting to be
a couple of the four horsemen!

the dead island games. more zombies! lol

the Lords of shadow games.

Murdered soul suspect, nice erie game in the style of l.a. noire

anyway im sure there is a lot more, but just happen to being going
off the top of my head lol!

'Monster Madness: Grave Danger' for PS3.

Yourself reviewed 'Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia' for Xbox 360 (and PC) and it fared very poorly, getting an F. Though as you note, a patch was released that fixed at least some of the gameplay issues (the controls) you had with it.

The PS3 received an exclusive updated version of the game a year later called 'Monster Madness: Grave Danger', that according to the description on Amazon.com has improved controls (i.e suggesting the 360 version patch is baked in) and also improves other things and adds additional content.

Thus it's possible the PS3 might score higher if yourself reviewed it and it's also extremely cheap these days, seemingly going for about $11.00 on Amazon.com as of writing: http://www.amazon.com/Monster-Madness-Grave-Danger-playstation-3/dp/B000HKKPX0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1411932446&sr=8-1
