This Halloween, try these 10 horror games you may have missed for PC and Steam Deck
October has rolled around again, and we're here to help you discover some scary games you may have missed.
Halloween! The month of October is finally here, and we all know what that means, don’t we? That’s right; it’s the season of ghosts, ghouls, and everything that goes bump in the night! It is the time of the year when we all go pumpkin picking, watch movies that keep us awake at night, and settle in on those dark evenings playing something that will scare us silly. But what to play?
In this list, we will go through some of the best PC games for horror fans you may have missed on your gaming PC, Steam Deck, and beyond. You’re welcome.
Conrad Stevenson's Paranormal P.I.
To kickstart this list, we have, perhaps, one of the lesser-known ghost-hunting games out there on Steam right now, but let me tell you, it’s one you will regret not playing.
Unlike others in its field, Conrad Stevenson’s Paranormal P.I. is a single-player experience, which is great for people who aren’t really into the online multiplayer scene but still want to get in on the ghost-hunting action.
Made to be more of a realistic paranormal experience with a more slow-paced gameplay style, Conrad Stevenson’s Paranormal P.I requires players to be patient and methodical in their approach, giving a more authentic feel to each investigation.
Taking the role of the fairly relaxed paranormal investigator, Conrad, players will use a range of real-life ghost-hunting equipment to assist clients in their supernatural endeavors. Gain evidence of the ghosts inhabiting each property and even assist in exorcising demon infestations – taking a relic to keep in your very own haunted museum (imagine the museum from The Conjuring).
Conrad Stevenson’s Paranormal P.I. is a must-play for anyone looking to fill that ghost-hunting itch, but prepare to be spooked, as this one is pretty eerie.
Get stuck into this first-person ghost-hunting game this Halloween. Grab some paranormal hunting equipment, exorcise some demons, add strange relics to your haunted museum, and become the best paranormal P.I. there ever was.

This one is more for those who like an immersive first-person experience that makes you afraid to walk around any corner. With jump scares like there’s no tomorrow, MADiSON sees you waking up in a locked room, your sister and mother have been massacred, and you’re in possession of an instant camera – but when you begin using it, not all is as it seems.
Explore your surroundings, solve numerous puzzles, and ultimately, solve the mystery behind the evil entity that appears to have taken an interest in you. What does the ghost of an unholy murderer want with you? That’s for you to find out.
Unfortunately for you, there’s more than one entity here, and each of them has a disturbing past that all blends into the game’s narrative, making this one of my favorite horror game experiences of all time. Scary? Check? Solid gameplay? Check. Good story? Double Check.
MADiSON is the perfect game to play this Halloween – be aware, though, this isn’t for the faint of heart.
Jump into one of the scariest first-person horror games this October equipped with a possessed instant camera. Uncover a dark story in the unsettling MADiSON.

Killer Frequency is a more light-hearted experience than the previous games on this list, but it still has a place here as one of the most unique horror experiences I have played.
Set in the year 1987, players take the role of Forest Nash, a once big-time radio DJ who now is the host of The Scream, a late-night radio show in the small town of Gallows Creek, USA – and when we say small town, we mean like a one-person 911 operator small…
With a serial killer on the loose, the Sheriff dead, and a 911 operator down, Forest is now the go-to person for emergency calls – live on air. Continue to do your radio host duties while helping the townsfolk escape this nightmare via fast-paced, real-time decision-making and branching dialogues.
With an authentic radio station straight out of the 80s, use various equipment to perform your duties: cassette tapes to play ads, a record player, and vinyl's to choose what music to play and alter the sound settings to your liking.
Set as a horror comedy, Killer Frequency features a beautiful art style that still delivers a highly eerie atmosphere. Can you figure out who the killer is before it’s too late?
Radio host by night, 911 operator also by night. Take the role of Forest Nash and help save the town of Gallows Creek from the infamous serial killer, The Whistling Man.

The Mortuary Assistant
More of a simulation horror experience, The Mortuary Assistant puts you in the shoes of Rebecca Owens, freshly graduated in mortuary sciences and new apprentice at River Fields Mortuary. This should be an exciting time for Rebecca, and for a while, it is. Until late one night, you are called into work to handle some embalming’s alone. You quickly realize that all is not what it seems with the bodies in your care.
Players will perform various embalming tasks on several bodies while experiencing spooky goings-on. Put together the clues needed to figure out the demon haunting you and perform rituals to prevent them from completely taking over your body and soul.
This is a game designed to be replayed a number of times, each time allowing you to discover more about the story of Rebecca and the dark secret within River Fields itself.
Let’s hope the pay is worth it.
Become a mortuary assistant and confirm all our fears when scary things happen around you. Uncover the clues and discover which of the bodies the demon possesses and exorcise it, once and for all.
At Dead of Night
One of the most unique games on this list, At Dead of Night blends live-action and graphics to immerse players into a horror experience you’ve not seen before.
Part horror game, part ghost hunt, and part horror film, At Dead of Night follows the story of Maya, a student traveling with her friends. Looking to stay at a remote hotel, Maya and her friends book in, but little do they know they’re booking into the hotel from hell.
The hotel is run by a psychopath named Jimmy Hall, and Jimmy has many skeletons in his closet. After tying up Maya’s friends and locking them in their rooms, Maya manages to escape Jimmy’s clutches, but around every corner, he is hunting her – prowling room to room.
After finding a ghost voice receiver, Maya must reveal Jimmy’s dark park by communicating with the dead around her while avoiding Jimmy’s clutches. Can Maya escape the horror hotel and save her friends?
No room is safe in Jimmy's hotel from hell. Speak to ghosts, learn of Jimmy's awful past, and save your friends in this half-live-action, half-graphics horror experience.
Similarly to that of MADiSON, Visage is a first-person psychological horror game. Still, unlike the former, this one is designed to be a slow-paced, atmospheric experience focusing on exploration and building tension slowly to create a more meaningful experience for players.
With multiple stories to play through, players will explore an ever-changing house where unspeakable things have happened: Family members murdered, suicides, insanity. Every room has its own story, and you must relive these awful memories to uncover the story the house is trying so desperately to tell.
With no combat system in sight, Visage relies on a run-and-hide technique to leave you in fear – but sometimes death is necessary to move forward. This is a game that deserves as many people to experience it as possible, but you’re going to have nerves of steel to stick it out. Are you up to the challenge?
Explore this ever-changing house of horrors and discover the haunting going on and the stories of families before you in this first-person psychological horror.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
One of the newer titles on this list, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre , is a third-person online horror game similar to that of Dead By Daylight, except in this one, you take the role of the notorious Slaughter family or that of their victims.
Playing as the family, you must use each character's unique abilities to stop the victims from escaping the grounds by any means necessary. Run around as Leatherface, revving your chainsaw as loud as possible to frighten your victims, or lay traps to capture them as the Hitchhiker.
As the victims, your only task is to escape the family's clutches that are hunting you. Use your wits and stay out of sight; find the tools you need to escape while staying as quiet as possible.
This game is a ton of fun to play with a group of friends and will keep you entertained for hours to come. What's more? It's available to play with Xbox Game Pass . Get downloading now!
Play as the infamous slaughter family or their victims in this online multiplayer team game based on the classic cult film of the same name.

One of the most wonderfully disturbing games on this list, Little Nightmares sees players take the role of Six, a young child looking to escape the Maw -- a dark and dreadful place filled with horrifying creatures looking to make you their next meal.
A combination of solving puzzles and sneaking past terrifyingly large creatures to get anywhere, Little Nightmares is the stuff of nightmares, but just like any game on this list, it's a frightfully good time.
As this is a side-scrolling platformer, both Little Nightmares games work brilliantly on the Steam Deck, and with the announcement that Little Nightmares 3 is on its way, it's the perfect time to experience these little horrors.
Take the role of Six and work to make your way out of the Maw, a horrid vessel filled with terrifying creatures in Little Nightmares.
Now out of its early-access stage, Demonologist is a ghost-hunting game similar to Phasmophobia - with a few tricks up its sleeve. You and up to three friends can explore spooky locations, looking for evidence of what kind of ghostly presence is at play here.
Developed in Unreal Engine, this is the best-looking game of its genre in existence right now and it also features secrets in every map that make the gameplay very interesting. Do you see a word written on the wall? Say it outloud.
Although earning money in Demonologist is quite a chore, it can also be extremely rewarding as not only can you equip yourself with snazzy outfits and get-ups, but you can also purchase various safe houses and kit them out too. Did I mention you can own a Flamingo?
Why woudn't you want to find ghosts with your friends all from the comfort of your sofa, or your bed? Get on it!
Become the best ghost-hunters you can be this Halloween as you and three friends can find ghostly evidence and even exorcise the beings that haunt these terrifying places in Demonologist.
Sequel to the equally fantastic Remnant: From the Ashes , Remnant II is a game for the souls-like veterans out there who like a little more of a challenge over story.
With a good mix of ranged and melee combat, players can choose specific gear that suits their play style to defeat the horrors that await them. With multiple worlds to explore, inhabited by various mythical and deadly creatures alike, this game has almost endless replayability.
Loot, craft, and kill your way to victory. Although this may not be your typical horror game, it's still a worthy mention on this list, and it may not be verified for Steam Deck users just yet , but we're hoping it will be soon enough.
Defeat deadly creatures and god-like bosses, fully equipped with a range of weapons chosen to suit your play style, solo or co-op, in this terrifying souls-like adventure.

The 12 Best Horror Games on PC
From phasmophobia to visage, these are some of the scariest video games to play..
PC is the evil lab where many new horror games are grown and tested. Some of the greatest modern horror games are word-of-mouth hits that began life as experimental PC exclusives. To that end, we’ve selected the top 12 horror games you can play right now on PC.
While some of these aren’t exclusive to PC, each game on this list either got its start or found its audience on the platform. Some of these are horror classics that have influenced countless imitators, while others are still hidden gems lurking in the shadows of digital storefronts. These are our picks for the 12 best horror games on PC.
And when you’re done, be sure to check out our more expansive list of the 25 best PC games to play to continue on your gaming journey.
IMSCARED: A Pixelated Nightmare is the only game on this list that breaks through its .exe boundaries and carries the scares into the real world. As you creep through IMSCARED’s low-res environments, finding keys and attempting to escape the nightmare you’re currently in, an entity known as White Face stalks your every move.
Once caught, White Face triggers a crash back to your desktop and in its wake, a folder containing a text document appears on screen, taunting your failure. It plays with your mind in other ways too: your browser might suddenly open, landing on a spooky YouTube video; elsewhere, HTML web documents appear in another folder, showing a map and the supposed exit to the area you’re in, but can you trust it? It even goes as far as requiring you to delete in-game documents to progress through certain moments. Much like Eternal Darkness, IMSCARED brings its unique style of horror outside of itself — a truly cursed game. - Jesse Gomez
11. The Cat Lady
Less than a minute into The Cat Lady, you find out the main character, a lonely 40-year old woman named Susan Ashworth, has committed suicide. Soon after, she reawakens in a mysterious world, only to be greeted by someone called The Queen of Maggots who instructs her to remove five ‘parasites’ from the world so that she may finally find peace.
The Cat Lady, despite its complex themes around mental health and serious tone, is surprisingly simple to play. You’ll explore twisted and bizarre environments, collect various items to solve puzzles and guide Susan’s decisions via dialogue choices with other characters. But beyond its traditional point-and-click adventure trappings is an affecting story, rooted in an authentic struggle of a woman who no longer wants to live. - Jesse Gomez
10. Dead By Daylight
Dead By Daylight launched in 2016 as a meager but well-meaning asymmetrical slasher horror game where various bumbling teenagers avoided gnarly eviscerations from archetypal slasher movie villains. By 2021, it’s become the Smash Bros. of horror games, bringing in iconic killer characters like Freddy Kreuger and Michael Myers to legendary horror game villains like Resident Evil’s Nemesis and Silent Hill’s Pyramid Head. Dead By Daylight continues to evolve on its premise, routinely adding new characters, features, and more to its rock-solid foundation. One thing remains constant, though: it’s just as fun to play the game as a group of seemingly helpless survivors in one round as it is to play as a huge, powerful, horror movie monster in the next. - Brian Altano
9. Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is one of the older games on this list, but it’s here for good reason: its gameplay mechanics helped spur a rebirth (no pun intended with Amnesia’s recent sequel) of the survival horror genre that had drifted into action game territory.
Amnesia starts off with the protagonist, Daniel, waking up alone in a dark castle, Brennenburg. He has no memory of how he got there (hence the name), and as he explores his surroundings, he realizes there’s a shadow stalking him. Wandering about the castle are other creatures that will give chase if they spot you. This wouldn’t be a huge problem if you could fight back, but you can’t. Your only defense is to run and often hide in the dark – a stark contrast to more action-oriented horror games like Resident Evil 5 which had come out the year before.
But here’s the kicker: stay in the dark too long and you’ll lose your mind. It’s not the first game to have a “sanity meter” (Eternal Darkness says hello), but its implementation in Amnesia is pretty ingenious. You’ll need to balance the game’s use of light to see what the hell you’re even doing with hiding in the darkness to avoid monsters, the same darkness that is slowly driving you insane.
Amnesia’s sequels and follow-ups all build upon The Dark Descent’s mechanics in smart ways, and other developers have taken notice. The Dark Descent still holds up today, even if the controls and interface are a little rough on consoles, so if you’re in the mood to sit in the dark for 10 hours, take a trip to Brennenburg. Just don’t stay in the dark too long. - Jobert Atienza
8. World of Horror
Fans of Junji Ito and/or H.P. Lovecraft will want to look into adding World of Horror to their list of scary games to play this October. This “1-Bit” horror game feels like you just stumbled upon a series of eerie and extremely detailed drawings on MS Paint.
Set in Shiokawa, Japan, players are tasked with stopping the apocalypse by exploring various locations and fighting monsters inspired by Japanese horror manga and urban legends. It is, of course, a horror game, but World of Horror also adds elements from the roguelite and RPG genres.
World of Horror’s grasp of tension, perfectly paired soundtrack and overall challenge make it a must-play on PC. - Taylor Lyles
Few games have successfully captured a sense of overwhelming bleakness and foreboding like the STALKER trilogy does. Whether you’re racing to the site of the world's worst nuclear incident deep within Chernobyl or discovering the secrets hidden within the decrepit city of Pripyat, this living, breathing world is ready to sap the life from your body. So if going toe-to-toe against spirits deep underground, or zombified foes who were once your companions and bloodsucking mutants sound like your kind of thing, it’s time to pay a visit to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. - Jesse Gomez
6. Five Nights at Freddy’s
There was always something inherently creepy about being in a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant as a kid, a dimly lit, rat-themed birthday party center with sad pizza, a mostly broken arcade room, and a giant animatronic animal band that would shut down in between songs to stare into the souls of children with giant, dead-eyed looks. Five Nights at Freddy’s is an entire game about the fleeting joy and haunted magic of a seemingly lifeless collection of animatronic pizza restaurant mascots who suddenly spring to life and become horrifying nightmares, although instead of being a kid at a birthday party, you’re an employee tasked with watching the restaurant after dark and surviving the night yourself.
You’ll flip through security cameras and other various devices while unsettling mechanical faces pop up sporadically or generally go bump in the night, but what makes it all so unique is that Five Nights at Freddy’s is one of the few horror games that most kids can play without enduring a lifetime of trauma. It’s rare to have a game series that can cater to both young and adult horror fans, mostly because it features a thing we can all agree on: animatronic animals are terrifying. - Brian Altano
Pathologic was ahead of its time when it was released way back in 2006. Set in a mysterious town beset by an unknown plague, Pathologic combines horror and mystery for a truly unique experience. Choose one of three player characters who must survive for 12 days while uncovering the mystery of the ‘sand plague.’
Each day, new quests will be available that will take characters one step closer to the truth. But be warned, because these quests will only be available on a specific day, and once it passes it’s gone for good.
Pathologic and its sequel Pathologic 2 truly excel at atmosphere. While jump scares are a bit few and far between, the overwhelming sense of dread will linger through your entire playthrough, and your time in Pathologic will burrow in your mind for much longer. - Matt Kim
Phasmophobia came onto the scene like a bat out of hell. Four players can join up as amateur ghost hunters, armed with tools like night-vision cameras, holy water, and radios. As an early access game, there are still plenty of technical kinks to work out, but the core premise works exceptionally well. Maybe that’s why so many Phasmophobia-likes have popped up on Steam in recent months.
You’ll wander through haunted homes and abandoned prisons, calling out for spirits from the beyond. Gather enough clues and you can try and successfully identify what kind of ghost is haunting that location. Deduce correctly for a nice payday.
As the clock ticks, the chances of running into a ghost increase, and so does the danger. Nothing beats that moment when you suddenly see your friend twist and contort from getting got by one of Phasmophobia’s many evil spirits as you all scramble to the exit for a hasty escape. - Matt Kim
3. Chilla’s Art Games
Chilla’s Art is the name of an indie dev team formed by two brothers in Japan. Since 2018, the duo has released over 15 micro horror games on Steam priced at just a couple of dollars. While these games might only be a few hours long, they pack a horrifying punch.
Every Chilla’s Art game is a unique experience but they’re typically played in the first-person and are centered around a mundane experience that quickly escalates into something terrible. One of the most well-known is The Convenience Store, where players take on the role of night-shift convenience store employee. As players go about their night, restocking items and checking inventory, creepy happenings such as strange customers, unexplained noises, and other horrifying encounters begin to intensify as the night goes on.
With so many Chilla’s Art Games to choose from it’s hard to recommend just one. But with such a low barrier to entry, pick a few and you’re guaranteed to have a good time. - Matt Kim
2. Puppet Combo Games
Babysitter Bloodbath, Power Drill Massacre, and The Night Ripper... No, these aren’t forgotten grindhouse films from the ’80s, but rather delightfully gory and downright terrifying games created by solo indie horror developer, Puppet Combo.
Via Patreon and itch-io, over 20 games in the past decade, all of which offer no shortage of intense and unforgiving moments. Whether you’re escaping from a serial killer while babysitting, taking part in a deadly game of cat and mouse with a psychotic nun in a boarding school (in the aptly named Nun Massacre) or controlling a park ranger on a cold and stormy night while something stalks them from afar, Puppet Combo wholeheartedly embraces its PS1-style, VHS horror roots in every game.
Dire situations, sleazy companions, and unrelenting killers make each and every one of Puppet Combo’s games an unforgettable nightmare. - Jesse Gomez
When Konami canceled Silent Hills in 2015, a slew of spiritual successors and games heavily influenced by the Silent Hills’ playable teaser came out. This includes Sad Square Studios’ first game, the psychological horror Visage .
Set in the 1980s, you play as Dwayne Anderson, a resident of a large home that is being tormented by the supernatural as he tries to find a way out of the house and learn more about what is causing all the paranormal activity in his home.
As you explore the mostly dark and quiet house, supernatural entities will taunt you by breaking light bulbs, turning on/off lights, and slamming doors. This constant barrage of sensory terror, combined with trying to maintain Dwayne’s sanity, makes Visage one of the more challenging horror games released in recent years. It’s a trial and error game, but your patience is rewarded with a fascinating story, and plenty of jump scares.
While it may not be Silent Hills, the legacy of Konami’s unreleased game courses through the veins of Visage while also maintaining its own identity. - Taylor Lyles

Phasmophobia is the best ghost game ever made
Track and ID spooks—then try to get away before they get mad.
Horror games do not scare me. There are so many that fit under that umbrella, from Resident Evil to Amnesia, and most hit familiar beats: a few good jump scares, the dread of being pursued, nasty monsters and creepy sound effects. I enjoy all of these experiences, but even when things get intense I'm never really afraid.
Phasmophobia is a game that gets into your head. When you're playing the real world doesn't exist. When you stop, some aspect has seeped into reality. This game has left myself and companions not so much stunned as scrambled, jacked on adrenaline and chatting for hours afterwards about what just happened.
The best summary of Phasmophobia would be a detective game about ghosts. You play as one of up to four investigators who go into various locations, from roadside houses to an asylum, and try to identify what kind of spirit it is being haunted by, and then leave. Though there's a serious Ghostbusters vibe here there's no actual busting: you're the pre-Ghostbusters, if you like, solely there to work out what kind of threat this is.
To this end you have various pieces of equipment, all simple in utility, stored in a van that acts as the team's command HQ at each location. There's a flashlight, which nearly always occupies one of your three inventory slots (VR players get four slots, which seems a tad unfair). The EMF reader is the PKE meter by another name, a little box that begins to light up in the presence of ghostly activity. A UV flashlight will show up ghostly fingerprints or footprints. A thermometer detects drops in room temperature.
All of this might make the game sound quite basic, like you just run into a house with an EMF reader, find a ghost, and that's job done. Well, try that the first time you play and good luck. Phasmophobia's genius is that this is a game of restraint and subtlety. Detecting the ghosts is always only a matter of time: the real beauty is that this is just the start.
Phasmophobia's genius is that this is a game of restraint and subtlety.
Phasmaphobia lulls you in with some chilled-out spooks, easy enough to pin down and never a threat, but after that the gloves come off. Finding where a ghost hangs about is one thing—and in the sprawling later levels can be a mortal chore. Finding out what it is? That's a whole other question.
The player character has limits. You can't move fast, you can only carry three items and so, even after working out where a ghost might be, you have to go back into the location multiple times with different equipment. Each type of ghost will (eventually) provide three types of evidence—for example, setting off the EMF at level 5 is one piece of evidence, freezing temperatures are another, and seeing ghost writing would be yet another.
Here's where things start to get fascinating, terrifying, and even exhilarating. The game makes your initial hunts relatively gentle, then the ghosts move up a notch. They start to notice you faster. They'll start to mess with you. Maybe you temporarily lose track of the team, then hear an unmistakeable breath passing close by one ear. Maybe you even see a silhouette for a second.
Phasmophobia's ghost will kill you but, more often than not, they will simply freak you and your team out. I've been coy because talking in-detail about a game like this risks ruining some of its best surprises, but I'll give one example.
It was a street house. The maps are three street houses, two farmouses, a school (huge), and an asylum (huge and confusing). This was one my team had handled before, and we quickly identified a child's bedroom upstairs as somewhere the ghost favoured.
Maybe you temporarily lose track of the team, then hear an unmistakeable breath passing close by one ear.
As we set up our equipment, something set off the car alarm in the garage downstairs. Two went down while the others finished setting up. They turned off the alarm, and we arranged over radio to meet at the front door. Then the lights started flashing, and we heard the doors lock.
I bravely hid in a cupboard. After a minute or two of radio silence, three of us regrouped but one was now dead in the hall. We went to the van, and went back to the child's bedroom with more gear. As we were setting up, the car alarm went off again. My companions went to turn it off, and I stayed to set up the last bits of gear.
I finished, turned and went towards the door, then saw my breath freeze in front of me. I heard my heartbeat, the lights started flashing, and a toddler's silhouette flashed by the corner of my eye. What exactly happened next I'll leave to your imagination, but once dead you can observe and listen-in to your former companions from a blue-lit realm where you can see the ghost but cannot help any further.
Key to Phasmophobia is the sound design: you have to run voice chat through the game itself, and then there's a local chat and a radio chat option. The difference matters because the ghosts can 'hear' you. In fact, some ghosts will speak to you, and even respond to an item called the Spirit Box that allows you to ask questions.
But the 'hearing' element of the ghosts is so much more than it might seem, because what it seems to do is pick up on the moods of your team. It responds when people are scared and say hasty things like "let's just get out of here." I've seen people try to deliberately provoke it, and get absolutely nothing, then two minutes later when they're isolated for a split-second something shoots from the darkness and rips them apart. I cannot tell you what it's like to hide silently for minutes, then hear someone say "I think it's gone."
As all of this implies, Phasmophobia's greatness is in the human interactions that it's set up to provoke. It knows that no ghost is ever going to be as scary as the one in your head, and shows real restraint in how it uses small events and subtle clues to build an atmosphere that, at its best/worst, can be absolutely horrifying.
Phasmophobia is an early access game and reflects this: multiplayer works through lobbies, there's a levelling system but no real overarching structure, and it does need the new maps and ghost types which will surely arrive over time.
But the beating heart of this experience is unlike anything else I've played. The experience depends on camaraderie and communication, as well as a decent smack of bravery, and the ghosts will mess with that combination in ways equally surprising and horrifying. Even when you're experienced, even when that first fear of the unknown has passed, Phasmophobia comes up with shit that'll turn you white.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun, but get ready to grind..
This game is fun, but it doesn’t take long to see that this has the trappings of a F2P game. So far, the novelty has not worn off, but I wonder when I’ll get tired of playing the same thing over and over again to get all the items to assemble or solve the puzzles. Also, the Lost Soul mechanic is a welcome surprise. Could play a game of just that.
Liked it but spectral binders are too hard to earn
The game was going good, I was glad it wasn’t actually sunset and just turned into a premium nextflix game. I still HATE the spectral binders. I enjoy how easy it is to keep track, 3 colors, each for different collection types. I just can’t get enough of the green ones, which of course is for the story collections. These games (hidden city, seekers notes, etc) usually have an in game friend option where you can gift each other these items to assemble collections, but this is only by yourself, so it’s very tedious to keep getting these by searching scenes and buying them in the store. I’ve run out of coins, I was enjoying the game…sad to hit an annoying roadblock. The story is very interesting though.
As a “free” to play mobile game this is an average blend of hidden object and match 3 puzzles, with above average production values. Fine. But what is Netflix’s angle here? I don’t see how they’re going to make any money off of this, and it has no tie ins to any of their IP, so what’s the point? This all just feels so redundant. That said, I do find myself reaching for the game during the inevitable mid-season slow points of their shows, so it is keeping my eyeballs in their eco system. What a dumb future we inhabit.

10 best video games where you can play as a ghost this halloween.
Ghosts are pretty terrifying enemies in video games. Some games prefer to flip the script, though, and have ghosts play the protagonist.
Halloween is nearly and the season of spooks and scares is full of iconic monsters like vampires and zombies. None of them is perhaps more universal than the ghost, though, and plenty of the horror hits of this year, including Ghostwire: Tokyo , make use of them.
Ghosts are also pretty terrifying enemies in video games: they aren't always visible, they're impervious to damage, and they can move through walls. Some games prefer to flip the script, though, and have ghosts play the protagonist. It's an interesting role reversal that always makes for unique gameplay.
Geist was one of the first M-rated games to be published by Nintendo. Rather than taking a spiritual approach to the idea, it brings some science fiction elements to the table. Scientist John Raimi works at a counterterrorism organization when he is suddenly captured. A process is then performed on him which splits his spirit from his body.
RELATED: 10 Forgotten Horror Games On The Nintendo GameCube
The game is split into a series of levels where Raimi must possess objects and people to progress. Objects can be moved and changed, but only in minor ways. People can do more, but must be weakened before they can be possessed. The hardware limitations prevented this game from being great, but it was still impressive for the time.
The Sims 3 & 4 (2012)
The Sims 3 and 4 have tons of expansions and updates. These aim to cover every aspect of everyday life, from pets to politics. Despite being a life sim, though, the series had long flirted with supernatural aspects and ghosts have been a part of the series since the first installment.
The Sims 3 : Supernatural expansion marked the first time players could design a ghost Sim, rather than waiting for them to die. Players could design their appearance and age as any other Sim, as well as their death. This does lead to some dark possibilities, but for the most part ghost Sims are just as cheery as regular ones, and they still appear in 4 .
The 7th Guest (1993)
Technically, the protagonist of the cult hit The 7th Guest is never explicitly identified as a ghost. However, the protagonist, Ego, is a spectral entity with no corporeal form who is revealed to be a spiritual aspect of another character in the endgame, so they are essentially a ghost. They are drawn to the mysterious Stauf Mansion to uncover the secrets within.
Stauf Mansion is lined with memories of a past tragedy there, and uncovering its mysterious is the main point of the game. Players investigate the mansion solving puzzles and watching FMV videos explaining the events of the past. This game, alongside Myst , was one of the popularizers of FMV in games . Much like Myst , it's also still fun to revisit today.
Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver (!999)
Recently Square-Enix sold off the characters and properties created by the studio Crystal Dynamics. Most people know this studio for creating Tomb Raider , but there's another underrated franchise under their belt; Legacy of Kain . The Soul Reaver game saw players control a wraith, or spirit, in a bizarre and esoteric underworld.
RELATED: Top 10 PlayStation 1 Games Redditors Would Like To See Remastered
Originally, protagonist Raziel was a vampire, but he was murdered by the sometimes-protagonist sometimes-antagonist Kain. He resurrects as a ghost and goes on a quest for vengeance. He action-adventures through a gamut of hack-and-slash levels. Raziel fights to enter reincarnation and return to life, like any good ghost should strive to.
Murdered: Soul Suspect (2014)
This dark and spectral mystery game sees players take on the role of a deceased detective. Ronan O'Connor has been murdered by the unknown Bell Killer. In order to pass on to the afterlife he must solve his own murder and uncover the culprit.
The game was criticized for its limited and odd-feeling gameplay. Level progression is weirdly simple for a detective game, mainly consisting of progressing through sequential levels. Where the game shines is in its story and the collectibles. The overarching plot is quite compelling and there are tons of optional collectibles to find that cast more light on Ronan's life.
While considered one of the scariest games on the SEGA Genesis , don't let Haunting fool one into thinking it's a horror game. First and foremost the game is a comedy. The player controls the aptly named Polterguy, who even got title billing in some releases of the game.
Polterguy's death was caused by a defective skateboard which fell apart during a grind. Now he is determined to take revenge on the man whose shoddy products caused his death. So, he invades the house of the manufacturer and begins possessing objects to torture him. Despite the dark revenge tale, the game's frights are usually pretty funny, achieved through hilarious animation.
Ghost Master (2003)
What's better than controlling one ghost? Controlling multiple ghosts, obviously. In Ghost Master , players control the titular bureaucratic spirit as they delegate spirits to haunt various location. The game consists of 15vlevels full of mortals to scare.
RELATED: 10 Best Horror-Based Puzzle Games
This isn't the only goal, however. The Ghost Master receives many additional side objectives like increasing humanity's belief in the supernatural. This adds a puzzle element to an already fun simulation game. Learning the fears and values of the people players torment makes this game one of the best haunting simulators.
Thimbleweed Park (2017)
Thimbleweed Park takes inspiration from a lot of great point-and-click adventure games in order to craft a charming and spooky adventure. The game has multiple protagonists, one of which is dead. Franklin Edmund was murdered shortly after the game's inviting incident and is compelled to haunt.
Rather than exploring a haunted house, Franklin's segments see the player haunting the house themselves. He can possess objects in order to scare NPCs in order to complete puzzles. Franklin's ghost adventures are only limited to his segments, but the game has a suitably spooky small down theme that still makes the rest of it perfect for Halloween.
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (2011)
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is one of the best mystery games on the original DS . Created by the creator behind Ace Attorney , it stars an amnesiac ghost looking for his lost memories. In so doing he meets a cast of quirky characters and saves them from grisly fates.
He has the ability to rewind time four minutes before someone's death, allowing for thrilling rescue sequences. He also has the ability to manipulate small objects, making every life saved a complex puzzle. The game dazzled on DS with its fun Rube-Goldberg style puzzles and charming animation. It's biggest draw, though, is its plot, which goes in some truly unexpected directions.
Haunt The House: Terrortown (2014)
Haunt The House: Terrortown is another haunted house type simulator game. It got decently big on YouTube shortly after its release due to its charming aesthetic. Unlike other ghost games it doesn't use drab colors but instead goes all out with Halloween decoration aesthetic. Players control a ghost as they make their way throughout many locations throughout the titular Terrortown.
Despite the house in the title, there are many places for players to haunt. These include ships, museums, as well as the standard houses and mansions. Every resident of the town also has a unique personality and voice that can persist between levels. There are also three free expansions that add even more content. All of this content together makes Haunt The House the definitive haunting experience in video games.

13 Most Memorable Video Game Ghosts
Time to get spooky! From Gengar to Alma, we're checking out the most memorable, iconic, and all around best ghosts in video games.
Ghosts have been a part of the stories of human culture since ancient times, so of course they are in our video games. In fact, there are a ton of ghosts in video games!
RELATED: The Best Indie Horror Video Games Of All Time, According To Metacritic
There are friendly ghosts, ghosts you can play as, as well as ghosts that frighten and still give us nightmares to this day. Besides their personality, it is surprising how different they can all look. Some are even cute! So here are ten of the most memorable ghosts in video game history.
Updated by Gabrielle Huston on October 23, 2022: The Halloween season has us reflecting on our favorite ghosts of gaming! We've added a few additional memorable ghosts for your reading pleasure.
13 Boo From The Mario Series
Boo is more of an entire race than a character. However, there are very memorable Boos, such as King Boo! Did you know the race was based on the wife of Super Mario Bros 3's co-designer, Takashi Tezuka?
Mario is as innocent as games go, so these ghosts actually more cute than scary. They are incredibly well-known, even to non-gamers. What Mario games are they in? The better question would be what Mario games are they not in!
12 Blinky, Pinky, Inky, And Clyde From Pac-Man
While their names are quite forgettable, their design is not. Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are some of the oldest video game ghosts out there. They are from 1980!
Pac-Man is not widely played today, but it left a legacy so big that a lot of people recognize it anyway. They have also been called monsters or goblins, but they are most commonly referred to as ghosts. As for backstory, who knows? At least they're on the cute side. No nightmares here!
11 The Gengar Evolution Line From Pokemon
Ghost Pokemon are a type favorite in the Pokemon fandom. They add a little darkness to an otherwise friendly universe. Everyone has their favorite among them, but when it comes to the most notorious, look no further than the first generation.
RELATED: The Best Halloween Games For Kids
Ghastly, Haunter, and Gengar are the iconic ghosts of the Pokemon world. If you are a fan, then you should know that it's easy to find fan merchandise with this evolution line on it.
10 Alma From F.E.A.R
Obviously, ghosts are big in the horror game genre. They are unpredictable, tragic, and can easily get the jump on you.
F.E.A.R. is a franchise that began in 2005, with its main monster being the ghost of a little girl. She is terrifying and constantly sneaking up on the player. She is also powerful, wielding psychic powers that are strong enough to overpower anyone.
9 Sae From Fatal Frame 2
Following up on the more frightening ghosts in the horror game genre, Sae from the Fatal Frame series was quite memorable. While the series has a ton of ghosts that make you want to keep your lights on at night, Sae was something special. In the second game, she was the main antagonist. Her ghost was driven insane by a ritual and you can hear her crazy laughter from the dark corners of the village.
To make matters even more scary, you cannot fight her until the end of the game. If you meet her, you have to run or else it is game over.
8 The Sorrow From Metal Gear: Snake Eater
No one expected a ghost to appear in Metal Gear , but if there is any series bound to surprise its players, then this is it. The Sorrow is one of the Cobra Unit soldiers, who are pretty crazy to begin with. However, only The Sorrow is a ghost.
RELATED: Horror Games With Multiple Endings
The Sorrow is not scary, but he is dramatic enough that you won't soon forget him. The guy cries blood, makes you see the ghosts of everyone you've killed, and spouts a lot of foreshadowing to other events that occur in the series.
7 The Hero's Shade From Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The Hero's Shade is not the only ghost to appear in The Legend of Zelda series, but he is definitely the most memorable. In fact, hardcore fans know that he is the ghost of another Link from another game (Ocarina of Time). It is not every day you get to meet a ghost of another incarnation of yourself!
He also takes on the interesting role of mentor for Link, teaching you different moves and techniques to help you on your quest. He looks scary, but he is far from a bad guy.
6 Celebrimbor From Shadow of Mordor
This undead elf is one of the two characters you play as in Shadow of Mordor . He shares the body of the other character you play as, a ranger named Talion.
Celebrimbor is a very cool character, as he can fight as a ghost with Wraith-magic and even has the ability to mind-control orcs. He is also complex, as he lies to Talion about their purpose when really what he wants is revenge for his death. Their relationship is an interesting one and really makes for a unique fantasy story in a familiar setting.
5 Lisa From P.T.
Lisa is the scariest ghost to come out of the horror game genre. Tragically, P.T. never got further than its demo. However, the demo treated gamers to some of the scariest content ever. The scariest part was Lisa, who haunted the hallway where the protagonist was stuck in a loop. She made strong impressions on players, despite not even being in a finished game!
RELATED: Best Horror Games With A Huge Plot Twist
Since we only got to know Lisa from the demo, her character is pretty shrouded in mystery. The content strongly hinted that she was murdered by her husband while pregnant. Beyond that, we know little about her. Perhaps that is also a part that makes her so haunting.
4 The Headless Horseman From Skyrim
The Headless Horseman appears in lots of content, so you're probably familiar with the idea. They're all referencing a gothic story called "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," first published in 1819. He also appears as a fun easter egg in Skyrim !
Every night, he randomly spawns somewhere on the map between 10 pm and 4 am, and walk from there to his grave at Hamvir's Rest, where you can find him during the day. If you found him during your adventures, you'll know that little touches like this are what make the world of Skyrim feel alive and mysterious, ready for you to explore!
3 Grandpa From Stardew Valley
Grandpa is the character who starts everything in Stardew Valley : he leaves you his farmhouse in his will and tells you to move there when you get sick of life in the city. The rest, as they say, is history.
The game is clearly critiquing the fast-paced, automated, difficult, depressing, and impersonal life of the city that forces people to feel like just cogs in a machine. That's what makes it so funny and hypocritical when, upon the completion of your first two years on the farm, your Grandpa's ghost comes back to judge how hard you've worked.
2 Divine Justinia V From Dragon Age: Inquisition
Ghosts aren't exactly a thing in the Dragon Age universe. You may recall talking to or facing creatures that look like ghosts in the games, but they're not actually those people come back from the dead: they're a spirit. Spirits are creatures of the fade that latch onto nearby emotions, memories, virtues, and vices. When they latch onto negative things, like hate or jealousy, they become what we call demons.
RELATED: The Best Dressed Horror Protagonists
So, when you encounter Divine Justinia V in the Fade in Dragon Age: Inquisition , it's not exactly her ghost. However, it is a spirit who has held onto her memories after her passing, and that's almost the same thing.
1 The Chozo Ghosts From Metroid Prime
The Chozo ghosts from Metroid Prime are among those with the most tragic story. This is because their personalities have totally shifted due to being corrupted. As ghosts, they have gone insane and will kill anyone. In life though, they were peaceful. What's more sad is that the Chozo were Samus' family and they no longer recognize her.

Where to take GTA Online Ghosts Exposed photographs
Locations and times to document ghosts in GTA Online and unlock the Ghosts Exposed livery for the Albany Brigham
The GTA Online Ghosts Exposed photo assignment sends you across Blaine County in search of evidence that spooks are real, so it's time to get out there and expose yourself to the truth! This is part of the GTA Online Halloween celebrations for 2023, but if you just run around hoping that you'll bump into an apparition then you'll come up empty-handed, as they only appear in set locations for a short period between specific times each night. Don't be scared though as I've already hunted (or should that be haunted) them down for you, so here's all of the photo locations for Ghosts Exposed in GTA Online, along with the rewards you'll get for clearing this task.
GTA Online Ghosts Exposed photo locations and times
- 8pm-9pm: Upstairs in the barn
- 9pm-10pm: Inside the mobile home
- 10pm-11pm: Inside the wrecked bus
- 11pm-12am: Beside or at the top of the lighthouse
- 1am-2am: On the front or back porch of the shack
- 2am-3am: On the roof of the church or a grave behind it
- 3am-4am: In the attic or porch of the abandoned house
- 4am-5am: Next to the waterfall
- 5am-6am: Above the north rail tunnel or on the bridge
- Final Ghost Johnny Klebitz 12am-1am: On the east side of Sandy Shores
There are total of ten ghouls you need to photograph to complete the GTA Online Ghosts Exposed event, which appear at the locations marked on the map above. Each ghost only appears for one hour per in-game day at the times listed, and there are two possible spawn locations for each ghost – but they are both close to each other. You need to document the first nine spectres before the final ghost, Johnny Klebitz of The Lost, will materialize in Sandy Shores.
How to get photographs for Ghosts Exposed in GTA Online
GTA Online Gun Van GTA Online new cars Cars removed from GTA Online GTA Online License Plate Creator GTA Online Armored Trucks
Once you've reached a GTA Online Ghosts Exposed location at the required time, you'll hear ghostly sounds and the apparition will appear – if you get too close it will vanish, but back off a short distance and it should respawn. Now you need to open the Snapmatic app on your phone, which you can access quickly if you double-tap up on the d-pad, or just select from the menu. Take a photograph of the ghost and it will automatically be submitted to Ghosts Exposed, providing a notification of how many you've collected so far. When you reach Johnny Klebitz, the final ghost, wait around before snapping away if you have the time and you'll hear him calling out to Trevor from beyond the grave.
GTA Online Ghosts Exposed rewards
For every GTA Online Ghosts Exposed photograph you capture, you'll receive GTA$20,000 and 500 RP, plus a bonus GTA$50,000 for submitting all ten, meaning there's a total of GTA$250,000 and 5,000 RP up for grabs if you complete this assignment. More importantly, you'll also unlock the Ghosts Exposed livery for the Albany Brigham , which combined with the Growling Cat horn will basically turn that vehicle into the Ectomobile from Ghostbusters 2.
