This is a very different kind of post from what I usually make. This one is personal, trying to put together a list of media to enjoy for Halloween around the day.
I’m mostly focusing on TV/film and video games. Other stuff not necessarily off limits but less likely.
I’m a bit limited on my video game options. I do not have XBox or Nintendo consoles, only my Playstation 4 hooked up. I MIGHT try to get my PS1 and PS2 games working on my PC but depends on how willing I am to set that up.
Following my principles to date, I refuse to touch anything connected with: Disney, Square-Enix, Capcom. I also loathe “torture porn” or extreme gross-out content. I generally hate jumpscare content but can put up with it if the story is good enough.
I welcome any suggestions!
There’s no guarantee I will get to or finish all of this. Alternately, I might watch something new before Halloween out of interest.
Anyway, here’s my list in no special order, divided up by format. Things that will be brand new for me to watch or play will be marked as new, otherwise it’s something I’ve done before. It will be updated as I think of new things or get new suggestions I want to try.
