It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And to celebrate Halloween, those creepy folks at video game companies always release a slew of monster-filled mayhem makers. Here are the 11 eeriest, grossest, most monstrous video games that are already out or will be released in the next few weeks.
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
(Nintendo DS) This cute adventure game pits you (as the legendary Link)

gameplay, even though the monsters won’t scare you…much.
(Sony PSP) This was originally released in Japan back in the day and is
considered one of the more difficult games in the vampire series. A
2007 update with more gruesome graphics and haunting new music should

Firstborn. He’s been trapped lo these many years. But now he’s been
released! And he and his minions want to take over the world.
(Nintendo DS) You wake up in a dark, foreboding psych ward. Shoot your way past
the oddest bunch of mad scientist surgical experiments since, well,
Touch The Dead (which dropped earlier this year).
(PS3, 360) It’s all aliens all the time in this graphically superior
shooter. Small ones will skulk past you in the dark. Big ones,
dragon-like super worms, are frighteningly awesome to behold.
(PC) This long-awaited role playing game with first person shooter
elements may be the best of the bunch. In this post apocalyptic world,
demons from hell populate England. And they’re not there just to say,
