This Halloween looks a little different compared to previous years. More people are staying home versus trick-or-treating as COVID-19 continues to challenge communities in the U.S. In fact, only one-third plan to go trick-or-treating as they normally would, according to a survey from ApartmentGuide.com. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate or have a spooky and scary Halloween holiday.
One of the best ways to enjoy Halloween from the comfort of your home? Video games. And you can access some truly terrifying and hair-raising games without having to spend any money at all.
Today, Addicting Games, the largest online games site in the US, has released a roundup of its top 5 scariest games, according to traffic. Each game is 100% FREE to play.
