It's almost Halloween, a time of year where lots of candy is consumed and people dress up terribly in the hope of scaring / amusing others. ]

If you're wisely choosing to stay indoors this year then you may wish to indulge in a spooky game, and our friends over at iRetrogamer have put together a video which highlights some of interactive entertainment's spookiest abodes.

While the video is quite light in Nintendo titles, it does showcase the iconic Luigi's Mansion - the perfect game to play at Halloween. Let us know if you have any happy memories of busting ghosts on your GameCube, or if you recall any of the other games mentioned in the clip.
