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

So like Scooby-Doo?

You know, unlike most people here I had the pleasure of playing this game as a kid and it could get tense sometimes.
Ghosts jumping out of nowhere and of course the famous blackout.



I could see it as a horror comedy maybe? But only the first one, which has a thicker opressive atmosphere at times. Dark Moon is more in line with something like Hotel Transilvania, where it's horror-themed but not meant to be "scary" in any way.

No. It has a spooky theme (in a cartoonish way), but certainly not something I would classify as horror. Though I found the final boss in the first game to be kind of creepy when I was younger.

I hated that part so much. -_-

Same with Scooby-Doo I guess. Well, usually.

Probably ghostbusters-level scary.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Yeah that stopped my playing of the game right there when I was a kid. Oh, not because I was scared, just couldn't figure out what to do lel.

@OP: Maybe the first game could be scary for children, but definitely not Dark Moon and most likely 3 as well. Kind of a shame but I prefer Halloween spooky over horror spooky, if that makes sense.



No.



If Luigi's Mansion is a horror game, then Ghostbusters is a horror movie.

Then again, Ghostbusters gave us this:

Believe it or not she was even scarier in the first draft, so they had to redesign her.
