Amazon full of cheap scares with Halloween sale featuring Dead Island and Catherine

Save money on horror games for one week only at online retailer

As we get older and more antisocial, we buy more things online to avoid annoyances like sales tax, the sun and other people. At the same time Amazon has been getting more aggressive with its gaming sales to gain ground against GameStop and mega-retailers like Wal-Mart and Best Buy. This week the site is offering spooky savings on horror games, including GR faves Dead Island, Catherine and Ghost Trick.

Choice items include Dead Island PS3/360 for $40, FEAR 3 for $27, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare for $15, and Catherine for $45, though our personal favorite is the grossly underrated Ghost Trick, priced at $14.49. Or if you’d like to approximate a real nightmare, you could buy exceedingly not good games like Duke Nukem Forever or Rise of Nightmares at a discount instead. You can see the whole list of items on sale here, and remember that the sale ends midnight PST October 29. Of course, if you’d rather not support the online retail giant we’re totally cool with that too, as we promise this isn’t a stealthy promotional post, just a public service.
