If you are looking to survive Halloween, there are three survival games that bought our attention: The first is Dead by daylight, which is discounted with a nicely 50 percent. Secondly the popular game from Klei Entertainment: Don't starve, you will find this game with a 75% discount. The dlc's are all cheaper as well, so if you have been hesitating to buy the game make sure to grab it now!

Outlast 2 also returns in the PlayStation section, with a discount of 36 percent, with means it has the lowest discount percent compared to the other platforms. Resident Evil 7 makes this even, as the discount is 50 percent. If you own a PlayStation and you are looking forward to play Prey, this is your moment as it has a 60 percent discount.

The last game for our selection is Little Nightmares which is 37 percent off, if you only need the DLC, you can pick this up for a discount as well!

And the winner is...

If you look at the horror and survival titles on sale, Xbox runs away with the trophy of scariest sale. Steam is a good second with a variety of many games. The third place goes to PS4 which had some good titles but overall not many games are lower in price. If you are a PC gamer and can't find what you need on steam, don't worry! Uplay and GOG have sales as well to cover you up, but make sure to hurry as the sales are ending at October 31st and November 1st.
