The Top 3 best NES games to play on Halloween

Yes, this is missing a lot of horror games from the NES library like Maniac Mansion, Friday the 13th etc. but these are my favorite.

Monster Party

This game might fly under the radar for many, but it should not be ignored. Like most games on the NES, it’s a 2D platformer. But where it differs is in style. Halfway through the first level, the visuals and music change from odd and bright to dark and foreboding. Aside from its weird translations, this is well worth your time. Don’t miss out on this!

Castlevania

What is Halloween without vampires? Nothing needs to be said about this action side scrolling classic that hasn’t already been said. This game set the stage for many of its kind and is still a treat to play to this day.

 

Ghosts ‘n Goblins

Another arcade classic! Everybody should know this painstakingly hard game. It can be cheap, but that’s how games were back then. And yeah… to the get the real ending, I hope you have patience and skill. Or you could just watch the ending like a normal person.
