    Stygian is coming out as well and that's certainly an October game. What are some others?

    Don't Go Alone (not great)
    The Legacy: Realm of Terror
    Anvil of Dawn
    (not horror, but has a very bleak atmosphere, and I always feel the urge to play this in October)

    I don't know about games, but this is a good month to read The Exorcist and watch The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    I guess Elvira games qualify if you don't mind the boobs.

    If we are going for scary/creepy, then I would recommend System Shock 1 and 2. I love the feeling of isolation and creepiness in both games. I think Planescape: Torment might qualify as horrific in places. The first Witcher games has moments of gothic horror.

    Sanitarium? I don't know, never played it but it seems creepy. Is that game good, by the way? I might give it a spin sometime. Also, Riven seems like a good autumn game. Mysterious and chilly, the game gives off a sort of fall vibe imo.

    It's not the most complex RPG around, but I found the first Diablo game to have a satisfyingly disturbing atmosphere without being too gruesome. Not really a scary experience, though.

    Unironically: Bloodborne.

    Ironically: any crap RPG that'll scare you how incompetent the devs were.

    Otherwise everything good has already been mentioned. Witcher 1 for sure.

    The greatest 'October' RPG is Arcanum

    The melancholic string orchestra, kinda grim world with an uncertain future between magic and technology... the industrial revolution and gray streets of industrial towns like Tarant...

    Not an RPG. Behind its awful controls hides a very enjoyable adventure game. Could have closed better, but everything that happens along the way makes it worth the time.

    Also, it's fucking Spring here, so go play Dink Smallwood.

    You're calling out Sanitarium but not Clive Barker's Undying or Gargoyles? :lol:
