Dead by daylight has killers from almost every popular horror franchise so I'd pick that.

Manhunt was the 1st to come to mind for me.  PS2 era but pretty gory for the time.  I think the 2nd one got banned in a few countries.

You absolutely can't go wrong with the Dead Space games. The Alan Wake remaster comes out this week too. Highly recommend Alan Wake, though it's more creepy than it is scary. A slow burn thriller with horror elements.

If you have a co-op buddy, I'd personally recommend any of the Dark Picture Anthology games such as Man of Medan and Little Hope. The 3rd game House of Ashes comes out around Halloween. Also, you can't go wrong with The Evil Within 1 or 2. I hope they actually give us a Halloween games sale this year since we didn't get one last year.

I think the only game that ever made me jump, was the end scene of Dead Space lol. No spoilers people.

F.E.A.R. and F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin (PS3/PC). For PS4 Pro or PS5, take Control. It relies more on nice atmospheric lighting and a lot of paranormal weirdness rather than jump scares.

Alien Isolation, specially to whomever has never experienced it before.

Perfect scare for Halloween.

Several jump scares and it's a little creepy.

Every year, I tell myself I'm going to finally complete Resident Evil Remake on Halloween and, every year, I chicken out. It does horror/atmosphere too well for me.

Makes it easy to recommend as a spooky game though.

Couldn’t agree more on FEAR 2, but it’s unobtainable so most people will probably pass. As for my answers, I’ll say deadly premonition, resi 7 and the evil within

Oxenfree is perfect for a nightly gaming session on Halloween.

Costume Quest 1 & 2

Kid characters are in costume, there's candy and plenty of Halloween shenanigans.

 

Was going to say Costume Quest but you beat me to it! I'm actually planning to play Costume Quest 2 myself this Halloween. Liked the first one a lot.

After missing the pumpkin jack sale, I’m looking for a game to play on Halloween too. Alan wake just isn’t scary enough, and I want to save Resident Evil Village for peak winter. There hasn’t been any scary games so far, I only remember one game having jump scares that work and that was based on Slenderman.

So Halloween is over now, but I grabbed a few games in the sales this month that I would recommend. So for those looking for some spookeh games to play next year:

 

Pumpkin Jack - A very short, easy 3D platformer with light hack n slash combat elements, the main draw of this one is the gorgeous visuals and charming world that comes dripping in the Halloween spirit. It’s not a horror game, but it’s a Halloween game 100% If this spooktacular little puzzle platformer doesn’t get you in the mood for the season, then nothing will!

 

Halloween Forever - A retro 2D platformer that feels like a throwback to the NES days, this one is a great pick up & play style game suitable for short bursts of play time. Again, it’s got a great overall Halloween vibe to get you in the mood, with a fun platinum trophy to earn.

 

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan - Now this is probably what you came for, a horror game. And Man of Medan delivers! Take control of a cast of characters whose diving trip goes sideways, as they find themselves stranded aboard a ghost ship called the Ourang Medan, battling pirates and their own psychological demons. The best part of this game is the inclusion of various co-op modes. I played this one online with my brother and we had an absolute blast doing a blind playthrough. There’s also a “movie night” couch co-op mode that is designed for a party or group of friends to take turns passing around the controller and making decisions. This is an awesome pick for a dark Halloween night session with some friends!

 

Resident Evil 2 - I’ve only just started this game post-Halloween so I shouldn’t even include it, but man oh man do I wish I’d played this on Halloween night! I am only a few hours in but so far I am completely blown away - the atmosphere and tension is incredible, and the phenomenal graphics, lighting, and sound design help deliver what is shaping up to be a nail-biting, heart-pounding survival horror experience at every turn.
