Good episode? Give it some love!
Some of the best horror games share something in common: and that is The ability to deliver a feeling of fright and unease upon pressing start on the title screen. Luckily, there’s no shortage of video game titles designed to send you into a tailspin of terror. Be it games from the past or present; The one thing they all share is that they’re designed to make you feel like anything could be lurking around the shadows with just a simple press of a button.

This is why THIS stage of the Retro VGM Revival Hour has chosen the most haunting tracks from various horror themed games to get your blood pumping this Halloween season.
