Luigi's Mansion was well-received by reviewers, but it was criticized for its short length. The game has sold over 2.5 million copies and is the fifth best selling GameCube game of all time. It was one of the first games to be re-released as a Player's Choice title on the system. The game was followed by two sequels – Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2013, and Luigi's Mansion 3, which was released for the Nintendo Switch on October 31, 2019. A remake of Luigi's Mansion for the 3DS was co-developed by Nintendo and Grezzo and released in October 2018.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, known in Australia and Europe as Luigi's Mansion 2, is an action-adventure video game developed by Next Level Games and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the sequel to the 2001 Nintendo GameCube game Luigi's Mansion. It is also the third video game where Luigi is the main character instead of Mario after the first Luigi's Mansion game and Mario is Missing!. The game was released in Japan on March 20, 2013, and later in that same month in most other major regions.

In Dark Moon, the player controls Luigi, who is equipped with the Poltergust 5000, a specialized vacuum cleaner used to capture ghosts. In the game's single-player mode, the main goal is to retrieve the shards of the shattered Dark Moon, a magical object that has a pacifying effect on the ghosts who live in the game's setting, Evershade Valley, while also rescuing Luigi’s brother, Mario, from King Boo, the mastermind behind the disappearance of the Dark Moon and the paranormal activity. Luigi progressively explores five different-themed mansions while capturing ghosts and solving puzzles in order to progress to the next level. Dark Moon offers a cooperative multiplayer mode that can be played locally or online via Nintendo Network. The game received critical acclaim from critics, praising the game’s 3D visuals and new features, but some criticism was given for the game's mission-based structure and lack of checkpoints.

 Haunt the House: Terrortown

Buy Haunt the House: Terrortown from the Humble Store

The game starts in an abandoned town where a ghost lives until people start to move into the town, disturbing its sleep. It attempts to scare everyone out of the town to rest in peace once again. The player can move the ghost around a building and possess objects to scare people. The more people it scares, the more paranormal powers it will gain. The goal of the game is to scare everyone out of a building; however, if a person is scared too much, they may commit suicide by throwing themselves out of a window. Once a building is completely empty, the player moves on to the next building. After everyone is scared out of town, the ghost is shown to be in a painting of what appears to be its family.

By scaring people, the player can raise the room's "atmosphere", which unlocks new actions for possessed objects. Some actions can be used to kill certain characters that can't be scared, and they will become a ghost that travels back to the clock tower home of the ghost. They will also appear in the painting at the tower.

Ghosts 'n Goblins (Japanese: 魔界村, Hepburn: Makaimura, lit. Demon World Village) is a run and gun platformer video game series created by Tokuro Fujiwara and developed by Capcom. The first entry in the series was Ghosts 'n Goblins, released as an arcade title on September 19, 1985.

The main series contains seven games: Ghosts 'n Goblins, Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Makaimura for WonderSwan, Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, Ghosts 'n Goblins: Gold Knights, and Ghosts 'n Goblins: Gold Knights II. The series focuses on the knight Arthur's quest to save princess Prin-Prin from the demon king Astaroth. The primary spin-offs include the Gargoyle's Quest and Maximo game series.

 Pac-Man

Pac-Man is a maze arcade game developed and released by Namco in 1980. The original Japanese title of Puck Man was changed to Pac-Man for international releases as a preventative measure against the defacement of the arcade machines by changing the P to an F. Outside Japan, the game was published by Midway Games as part of its licensing agreement with Namco America. The player controls Pac-Man, who must eat all the dots inside an enclosed maze while avoiding four colored ghosts. Eating large flashing dots called "energizers" causes the ghosts to turn blue, allowing Pac-Man to eat them for bonus points.

The development of the game began in early 1979, directed by Toru Iwatani with a nine-man team. Iwatani wanted to create a game that could appeal to women as well as men, because most video games of the time had themes of war or sports. Although the inspiration for the Pac-Man character was, reportedly, the image of a pizza with a slice removed, Iwatani has said he also rounded out the Japanese character for mouth, kuchi (Japanese: 口). The in-game characters were made to be cute and colorful to appeal to younger players. The original Japanese title of Puckman was derived from the titular character's hockey-puck shape.
