Scary Games on a Scary Night

At around 5 o'clock this evening, my home will be invaded by roving packs of ghosts, ghouls, superheroes, various movie characters, and kids dressed up in low-budget, crappy costumes. Thankfully, any zombies I see will be looking for candy as opposed to brains. And I'm giving out the good candy: none of that brown taffy crap that others love to give out. My wife and I give out chocolate - the name-brand stuff!

But Hallowe'en isn't just about candy: it's also about being scared sh*tless. Some people watch scary movies. And others, like us gamers, play scary games. Are you looking for some scary games to play tonight? Check out my top 3 picks after the jump.

Condemned 2: Bloodshot: Fight off crazy hobos, black goo monsters, and rabid bears with a variety of weapons including guns, boards with nails in them, and even bigger boards with bigger nails in them.

Dead Space: Take on the role of Isaac, an engineer, stranded on a crippled mining ship dripping with gore and filled with some pretty damned nightmarish monsters. Not only is this game scary as f*ck but it also got some pretty great reviews.

Silent Hill: Homecoming: What would Hallowe'en be without a little psychological damage? Silent Hill delivers the frights and chills that will give you nightmares for many months to come.

Have a safe and happy Hallowe'en everyone!
