Five chillingly cheap PC games for your Halloween
I get a lot of funny looks around these parts when I post non-Sonic and especially non-Sega content, but the truth of the matter is that I really love Halloween – and I was hired as a reviews editor, and this is technically classified as a video review, so I don’t think I’m being too out of line in posting it. Wouldn’t be the first time I’ve written about a horror game under the TSSZ banner, anyway. So if you spent all your money on costumes and candy this year, I’ve collected a selection of five spine-chillingly cheap PC games to play this October 31st. Some are mods for games you may already own; others are stand-alone releases that are entirely free to play. So turn off the lights, put on a comfortable pair of headphones, and get ready to have your pants scared off.
SURVIVAL CRISIS Z (2005) Price: $0
OUT OF HELL (2009) Requires: Unreal Tournament 2004 ($15)
DOOM 64 (1997, 2007, 2012) Requires: Doom 2 ($10), or Doom 64 ($15)
NO MORE ROOM IN HELL (2011) Requires: Source SDK 2007 ($0)
CRY OF FEAR (2012) Requires: Half-Life 1 ($10)
SLENDER (2012) Price: $0 (BONUS SIXTH GAME)
Obviously, there’s a lot more out there than just what we’ve listed here today, but I hope you’ve found something to sate your appetite on the cheap this October 31st. Happy halloween!
