Every single year around this time, I start making these grand plans in my head of all the horror games I should play to celebrate October/Halloween. It never happens. I also end up getting bummed because for some reason, every other month has new horror game releases, but October almost always ends up devoid of them due to delays because of all the AAA games coming out this month. I'm going to give it another try this year, but was wondering if anyone out there had any recommendations for things that are worth playing or if anyone else out there tries anything like this.
I usually start off trying to play through Amnesia, Silent Hill, or Resident Evil 2 just to get myself motivated, but something inevitably derails me. Either a crazy work schedule, having to do a lot of things around the house, or feeling obligated to check out the big fall games. I'm thinking of starting off this time with Alien: Isolation, since I hear great things about it and only played it for maybe 3-4 hours when it came out.
tl;dr - does anyone have any horror game recommendations (preferably not Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Amnesia)/do you have any October/Halloween gaming traditions?
