Musical scores are my favourite genre of music. Instrumental and classical sounds are my go-to sanctuary for virtually every single bout of stress that comes my way.

Since I am such an avid player of HOGs, I thought it would be fun to share with y’all five of the creepiest ones that I have encountered thus far, making them rather ideal for chillaxed Halloween entertainment. These five titles aren’t going to scare the absolute wits out of you, but they all have excellent atmospheres and ambiances to them for this spooky-licious season of frights, and that is what makes them ideal for Halloween.
Dealing with Depression is one of the biggest challenges that I have on a day-to-day basis.
