Poll: Looking to pick up a horror game to play for hollow'een (30 votes)

Resident Evil 4 HD 90%
Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate 7%

These two are the ones that really catch my eye, but which of these would be better for some light spookyish video game fun?

Resident Evil 4. I've played it and can recommend it.

I think your list isn't great, but between the two of those, Resident Evil 4.

Yep. Why not Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS?

I can't suggest either title

Resident Evil 4, if not both!

Of the two, Resident evil 4 is the clear pick.

You should know that neither of 'em are scary, but if they're really what it comes down to, then RE4 absolutely.

@yummylee: oh yeah, I know, I'm not looking for big scares just something vaguely gothic/horror theme...dead space is good I hear..

This isn't on your list, but Year Walk has some legitimately terrifying moments, and when it's not terrifying you it's creeping you out. It helps if you play with headphones and in a dark room. Only downside is that you have to have an iPad (I think? Even if it's on iPhone I would use iPad, I imagine the smaller screen would eliminate some of the scares). If you're looking for gothic/horror themes, Year Walk is perfect.

I can't believe these are my choices, but Resident Evil I suppose.

Fatal Frame games

So we have to pick between one of the best games ever and a shitty DS game that even Vinny didn't really care for. I'm going with RE4. Although my choices for a slightly spooky Halloween gaming experience would be playing Majora's Mask, Dark Souls/Demon's Souls, or one of the first four Silent Hill games if I wanted to lean into the scares a bit more.

Resident Evil 4 is a really really good game.

And the Regenerators are scary.
