Best Halloween Games 2018


PC, PS4 and Xbox One

Ethan Winters’ search for his wife provides the story for a triumphant return to the bone-chilling basics of scaring the daylights out of players! Yes, we might be counting down the days until the arrival of the Resident Evil 2 reboot – but this is one awesome way to pass that time…




Combining gut-wrenching dread with enormous playability, this traumatising title is based in the bleak backwoods of Western Canada, as a gang of teenagers see a weekend away turn decidedly nasty…again!



PC, PS4 and Xbox One

The beloved film is the recipient of a fabulous reimagining in this semi-open world survival thriller. The multi-player format suits perfectly – one player randomly chosen to control Jason on each occasion – and the expansive scope, coupled with the gloriously gory source material, provides an experience like few others!



PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

From time to time, we’ve all made a comment about how we feel like we’re in hell – and this is as close as it gets to the real thing! All the devilish details of the fiery inferno are laid bare, and your task of navigating it is guaranteed to get you hot under the collar!



PC, PS4 and Xbox One

A haunted house story with an emphasis on exploring every nerve-jangling nook and cranny, this instant classic pays homage to horror’s age-old traditions. Best part, this excellent effort is the first of a trilogy – so there’s plenty more to look forward to!



PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

It might sound like a children’s cartoon, but that’s the point; it’s a wholly horrible animation studio that provides the backdrop for this one! It’s beautifully rendered, as the setting would suggest, and the array of petrifying puzzles it throws at you will make for hours of frightening fun!



PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

Having had our fill of fear from the original, the second instalment of the franchise isn’t for the fainthearted either! Once again following an altogether unlucky journalist who ventures into the land of night-vision, you’ll be too scared to do anything other than keep playing!
