For some reason Scarecrow looks like Oogie from A nightmare before Christmas.

I forgot the drawstring under the hood this year, which pulls the sackcloth together and makes more of a head. So, this year it's Scarecrow-by-way-of-Oogie.

I've had Lone Survivor since the Vita version came out, but I still haven't played it. I'll correct this mistake this week.

I'll throw in The Suffering as a suggestion. A little rough around the edges, but still a really great action-horror series.

I wish Jim wouldn't try to be funny, deliberately bad is still-

Oh, wait, that's the Trapdoor theme. Nevermind

Anyway, I suppose Jim can't recommend anything by that Croshaw person, but the XDAS games were well regarded. My favourite was 7 days a Skeptic, but that's just me.

I hadn't heard of Aliens Infestation until this video. Seems like a cool game, thanks for the heads-up Dr. Crane!

now im glad i rescued that copy of clock tower 3 from the charity shop ^^ something scary to play on halloween instead of running thru costume quest again.

also, Lone Survivor has made it to WiiU as well if anyone in interested.
i also reccomend, if you can get them

Eternal Darkness: Sanitys requem for gamecube and Call of Chtullu: dark corners of the earth on xbox(original) for some old style fun.
got to admit, when a game gives you a BsoD from windows2000 and you are reaching for the pen to get the crash code (on a gamecube, no less lol) its got you.

That ClockTower scene was ridiculous. Not scary, RIDICULOUS! Like that masked man would have been played by Bruce Campbell if they ever made the movie.

And I think the problem with the list is you went for the "Not Obvious" horror games and the horror in your list isn't well...obvious. The Alien game looks kinda fun and maybe a little stressful, but like X-Comm or 40k Chaos Gate, permanent squad death isn't overly scary.
The other? Maybe the fear just isn't obvious and that's a thing. I mean come on! A typing tutor! And a comedy one at that!
Might as well thrown Dead Rising in there. I mean you can ride around a tricycle in a pink tutu with a chainsaw paddle, but hey, zombies, am I right?

I'm not saying the idea of a Not Obvious horror list is bad. I bloody well like it! I guess I just can't get over how silly that ClockTower scene was! I mean come on! He was a WW1 storm trooper/santa claus hybrid with acid! That's like the silliest idea I've heard all day!

I must say another kinda creepy game that I got on GOG a while back was "Neverending nightmares". The name is phoning it in a bit but it's damn fun.

Jim must be so sad having a guy wearing a sack break into his house once a year and do all his work while he himself undergoes... weird torture. There's a novel in there somewhere

My guess for next Halloween: a list of scary business practices game's companies are using that are slowly destroying the industry. I'm not just saying that in hopes of The Scrarecrow and Miniature Fantasy Willem Defoe teaming up to destroy Miniature Fantasy Ubisoft by the end of it, nope.

OT: Halloween will indeed be made better by the Typing of the Dead.

Thank you again, Mississippi's favourite son. You know what I found surprisingly scary? The first level from Tomb Raider. Those wolves...that music. Ooh, fuckin' 'ell.
