We all love horror games, and being that it’s the month of October, we felt the need to share a list of games releasing this month that fit the genre. With notable releases like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III releasing, we felt the need to keep this list strictly to games of the spooky genre. Let us know some games in October that you’re looking forward too. They don’t have to be horror games either.

Luigi’s Mansion 3

Not scary, you say? We beg to differ! Mario and the gang arrive at a hotel for an all-expenses-paid vacation.

However, Luigi isn’t alone as a body double named Gooigi will lend a helping hand.
Release Date: October 24 – PC
Torture, pain, suffering could explain this visual novel experience, but in all of that is a story of perseverance and determination. The game takes place in Kajou City, a central metropolis of the Kantou region that was transformed overnight into a demonic city where supernatural creatures run rampant. As the protagonist, the player will join up with a group of witches to hopefully put an end to this nightmare. That is if the player can get through all of the gruesome events along the way.
