Yes, yes, I know it's meant for children, but it still has the nearly constant sense of dread, abundance of scares, ever present ghosts and spooky locales you'd get in a horror game.

Sure games like Pac-Man have ghosts throughout their entire run, but the levels are so happy and colorful that there are no real scares or creepy atmosphere around, and Ghouls N Ghosts is more of a dark fantasy experience.

So, is Luigi's Mansion a horror game? Did I miss anything that'd disqualify it from the genre?

Adventure/Puzzle game pretty much with a spooky/horror theme to it.

^ I like this answear. 

Adventure/puzzle with spooky theme, ment to be kid friendly.
This is not a horror game.




Not really it's more a puzzle/adventure game, I wouldn't say you feel dread and such when playing it.

It's more funny than scary, so no.
As others have said, it's a puzzle/adventure game with some spooky elements thrown in. It makes for a great game for the kids and adults to enjoy during leading up to Halloween.

Is as much as horror than something like the Goosebumps movie. Is more an adventure with kid-friendly horror elements added.



It's as much of a horror game as Pixar's Monster AG is a horror movie. Sorry, I couldn't be bothered to look up the English title of the movie.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well they try to sell Castlevania as a horror game, so...

Nah... Luigi's Mansion isnt even Goosebumps level of horror.
