Games for the Spooky Season

Happy Halloween Spooky Readers, 

This year I have been getting into the spooky spirit by making my cousin play spooky games. I love horror games, writing content for the spooky season this year has really brought out that I am a "Every day is Halloween, isn't it? For some of us." - Tim Burton person. I am using cover images I have found through google I do not own any rights and am using the image purely for future review purposes (Fair use under the copyright act sections 29 and 30 under use for a review).
