Halloween is just a month away and the gaming world anticipates the possibilities behind Games with Gold on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Well of course, the gist of the story is invasion of frightening, hair-raising, horror game titles.

It seems that Xbox lit the wick for a Halloween tradition since when "The Walking Dead" invaded Games with Gold in October last year. For this season, there are plenty of predictions and requests for Microsoft to sandwich another horror title in Xbox One with Gold. But consider that Microsoft usually offers the not so new titles in Games with Gold before taking a peek in GameNGuide list.

The light part first, "Haunt" is a good title via backward compatibility in Xbox One. Explore a haunted mansion using all senses in this Kinect-based game. This title might be a bit tricky to start with but take note that millions loved this game based on 70 rating from Metacritics. So open mysterious doors and sarcophagi while avoiding banshees and other creatures of the night.

Now survive the post-apocalyptic world in "I Am Alive." This game offers a nice storyline where the protagonist braves the almost inhabitable world in search for his missing wife and daughter. Yes, the plot may not be unique but take the good rating as an argument that "I Am Alive" is a good candidate for Games with Gold. Game Spot classified this title under "great" category with score of 8.

"Alan Wake" is a good mix of horror, thriller and action so this could be a top bet. Think of a talented writer protagonist whose wife mysteriously disappears. "Alan Wake" left no stones unturned in his search but the complication came when a book coincides with his every move. If there are Alans reading out there, please tell Microsoft that you need to save your love and unravel the mysterious book this October at Games with Gold.
