This Halloween, we wanted to talk about some scary video games. Like horror movies, horror was a well-established genre when games really started to find their voice. So as a result, we have a long history of excellent horror games to choose from.

In this segment, we feature some horror game recommendations that you may not expect, as well as some well-known classics. We also talk about the games you shared with us on social media as being the scariest you’ve ever played.
