My 25 Favorite Horror Video Games

Keeping up with the Darktober theme of most of my posts this month, I wanted to do a list for my favorite horror themed video games.

Video games have been a big part of my life, as I was born in 1978 and the 1980s through 1990s were spent button-mashing in front of a tube television about six inches away from my face.

Being that I was always a big horror movie fan, I obviously loved horror video games as well.
