Spooky trailer round-up featuring FEAR 3, Dead Space 2 and Shadows of the Damned

Boo! Did we scare you? No? Okay then… Boo! How about that time? Man we’re no good at this. But games have evolved over time to be pretty good scare-givers, especially compared to garbage like Saw and the endless parade of classic horror film remakes. And with Halloween upon us, it’s not surprising that several upcoming scary games would have new terrifying trailers released today. Here’s our rundown of the best.

We’ll start with FEAR 3, or F3AR if you’re into that sort of thing. Though this trailer doesn’t explicitly reference Halloween, it’s the most frightening one we’ve seen today. You got a creepy girl, some undead guy, dead bodies coming to life, fetuses, and the old "eerie silence that leads to a smash cut" trick. Not bad guys and creepy girl.

EA and Grasshopper Manufacture used the holiday to put out a new trailer for Shadows of the Damned. Announced last month during Tokyo Game Show, Shadows is an action-horror that has a super group of talent behind the wheel, including the creators of Resident Evil, No More Heroes and Silent Hill, so anything new about the game is appreciated. This video is short and sweet and even wishes you a happy Halloween at the close. Well isn’t that nice?

Finally, we wrap up this story with the most explicitly Halloween-related trailer of the bunch. Featuring a live action Isaac Clarke hacking away at some mysterious object, it ends up making a cute reference to the occasion. And whoever wears that Isaac outfit to the EA company costume contest will win for sure. Who do we have to strategically dismember to get our hands on one of those?

    Wow these spammers are killing this website. Comments have become so terrible to navigate thru. Couple of suggestions Make the comment list at the bottom of article show more that 10 comments, up the count so we dont have to keep changing pages to view the next set, maybe about 20 or so. The home page of gamesradar has the same flaw, the design needs to show more articles instead of having to go 3 pages back to see an article that was written yesterday. Come on you took soo many good pointers from Desructoid/Kotaku why not follow what they got right. And when is GamesRadar plan on using this new video player? Leaving on a high note, your articles are some of the best on the web so please keep them coming.
