    I'm not sure about exclusively but I usually go for some dark RPGs like Shadow Hearts, Folklore, some of the MegaTen games. I'm thinking of mixing it up this year with some Ao Oni and Yume Nikki though.

    I love Horror games that focus mainly on atmosphere like Silent Hill and Fatal Frame but I play those year-round so I tend to try and find something new each year.

    Resident Evil (Sega Saturn)
    Dracula The Undead (Atari Lynx)
    Silent Hill (Playstation)
    Escape from Monster Manor (3DO)
    Alien VS Predator (Atari Jaguar)

    As a side note though, the new Haunted House is well worth checking out and a good time with the lights down and I have to also have an honorable mention for Grabbed by the Ghoulies on the original XBOX.

    Except for Demon's Souls which was because of a pure black server, I don't play games just because a specific holiday. If playing on a certain date gives me a bonus, such as Gurumin giving you the Christmas outfit, I just change the date and reload the game.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    My brother makes it tradition to play a different Castlevania game every year around Halloween. I love the two games I mentioned to death. Also, Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a Halloween staple.

    Some spooky games that I find set the vibe of the Halloween season include the likes of Demon's Crest, the Ghosts 'N Goblins series and, lastly, Ghost Manor on TG16. I fired up Demon's Crest again a few nights ago and it's as atmospheric as ever.

    Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti- nothing else seems very Halloween-ish to me, possibly Zombies ate my Neighbors, maybe.

    I don't have a top five, but by coincidence I recently picked up Decap Attack and Addam's Family Values and those are definitely in season.

    I always play Zombie Revenge on the DC for Halloween, that's my little ritual. Might play a little Castlevania Chronicles or a Wii light gun shooter this year, depends if I have any time.

    Having a costume party on Saturday evening, we will likely be doing the "standard" party fare games, nothing Halloween-centric, but always fun stuff for parties:

    Rock Band 3
    Singstar
    You Don't Know Jack
    Buzz Quizz World
    Fighting Games
    Move and/or Wii motion controller multi-player games

    I'm shocked no one mentioned any of the House of the Dead games. I had a couple of Halloween parties where I had HOTD2 set up with 2 light guns. Seemed very appropriate. That being said:

    House of the Dead 2
    House of the Dead 3
    House of the Dead: Overkill
    Castlevania: Bloodlines
    Vampire Night
