The title is nearing release. (next Tuesday) The early reviews are out. And one point of consensus is that Alien: Isolation is survival-horror as hell. It's looking more and more likely that this game will be my go-to Halloween game for the month of October.
I've always enjoyed indulging in a little taste of frightening media during the month of October. Perhaps its a natural progression from some of the monster-movie marathons that were regularly aired on TV during my youth. But when October rolls around, I start reaching for the scary stuff.
Sadly, most of the upper-tier horror films have already been crossed off my list. This year I'm turning to some of the scary games in my backlog to fill the void. I'll be revisiting Zombie-U, and giving Outlast a try. And if the reviews stay as positive as they have been, I'll be picking up Alien on Tuesday. (or possibly just ordering it off of Steam)
What games would the rest of you recommend for a little Halloween-themed gaming? What are your usually go-to games when you want the hair on the back of your neck to stand up?
