What's your goto halloween game /vr/?
Let's make a list for this year.

20 games should be enough for everybody, what do you think?

Doom is probably the most Halloween thing I've ever played. Been wanting to try Medievil though.

Medievil 1 & 2 are proper Halloween games. Probably 2 moreso, it's got that gothic Victorian aesthetic, including a vampire's mansion.

My own personal pick here would probably be Resident Evil 2. I revisit that every Halloween.

There are popping "spooky" thread already on both /v/ and /vr/ and it would be nice to have /vr/ halloween list ready before halloween to spread around.

Also it takes time to make lists on slower boards and voting will take even more time if everything goes well.

Vampire Hunter D for PS1.
Yes, it's good. Got panned for graffix and for being on an 'obsolete' console. Feels like an additional link between Resi and DMC1. D actually has a move similar to Vergil's katana unsheathing one. The story is just the story of the second D movie. Also, you can succ weakened enemies into your hand for mana points and the game prevents grinding for mana by cutting the amount of points if you succ the same enemy type in a row. It's a pretty good game overall and the atmosphere is great. The only shit part is the second-to-final boss, because it's a big stationary monster. Final duel is very dope tho.

IIRC Nightmare Creastures is on both PS1 and N64, but the second one only came out on PS1.

Heiankyo Alien is an arcade game. It has a few different ports, but the gameboy one was the one I had in mind, since it's the only one that doesn't just look like some blocks running in a maze.
