September Quiz - Halloween Horror
The supermarket displays leave no doubt - since the first of September everything has been geared towards Halloween. Do you all have enough pumpkins, orange buckets, plastic spiders and cardboard bats yet? This September my quiz series follows the trend, similar to the zombie and spider puzzles we had many years ago. Accordingly, all signs point to Scary & Horror: 25 games that want you to be scared... a few from before 2000, and many more recent ones. Will you dare to keep your eyes open and recognise them all?

September Quiz - Clues #1
Some of you have already noticed, we are actually a month early for a Halloween round. I blame the supermarkets, they confused me with their sudden plastic spiders and pumpkins! Hopefully the current quiz will confuse you less. The first 25 players are already in, and now I'm helping you out a bit.
Here are the first clues:
1) Image 12 shows the first game of a four-part series & is considered to be one of the best horror games of all time. 2) In game 6 you take on lots of supernatural enemies. 3) Number 19 is a Dreamcast game. 4) Only one game of this round was released in the 80s, and a whole 19 had their release after the year 2000. The other five somewhere in between.

September Quiz - Clues #2
The final week is underway, and next Saturday this round is over! Will you join the 35 players who have already participated? Don't worry about the spooky pictures - they're just games after all.
Here are the last clues:
1) Picture 5 shows a series in which you are constantly on the move with a camcorder and its greenish night vision. 2) Game 11 is a survival horror game on the ps1, the second part of a trilogy. 3) The pixel soup of number 15 is a Sega Saturn game, but the title also appeared for other systems. 4) Ten games in this round are from the 2010s, and six are from the current decade.
