I guess I wouldn't call that the biggest missed opportunity, especially since this horror-themed game just slipped to November for wide release.
Yeesh you guys realize other than the Halloween series the VAST majority of horror movies release outside of October right? With the majority of slasher flicks being released in the spring or winter (specifically December) time frames right? Friday the 13th has always released in May, nightmare on elm Street has always released in November, etc. Unless the movie specifically deals with Halloween it almost never released in the October time frame. Actually I would have thought a May release would have been more apropos for this game anyways as the end of May is generally when people go off to camp. While yeah, I too will be doing horror themed games for Halloween it not being out won't prevent me from getting it as I, and most buyers I would think, will be buying it because I am a fan of slasher movies. Just like I got and play BaHotH because of love of horror in general. I mean what other horror slasher type games is out there? Course I also enjoy the computer game Dead by Daylight and it didn't come out anywhere near Halloween either. And the new Froday the 13th game will probably be pushed back to November or later as well.
