Halloween Gaming – and the Headphones You Need for it!

Halloween is here! Sometimes going out to parties isn’t the right way (…it is a Thursday, after all). If you’re looking for Halloween gaming – including information on the Overwatch Halloween event 2019 – read on!

Some of the most popular games of recent years have been horror based. Until Dawn, Overwatch, even Luigi’s Mansion… everyone loves a thrill!

This trend stretches back to PS1 and the original Resident Evil release in 1996. Incredibly popular, it has become a game that defined the survival horror trend.

As any gamer knows, you need good sound to be able to really enjoy yourself. The music and noises on these games really make them; you can tell when a monster is appearing or creeping up on you, or so you can really get into the spirit of them.

This blog is going to look into great games for Halloween, and the headphones you need to enjoy playing them!
