Shutter Island - This ghost game is reeeaally good! You know it's a take off on the movie, right? The movie with Leonardo Dicaprio? You have to play it. It's not the same old, same old hidden object game. It's not your ordinary puzzle game, either. It has a tense, addictive story line that is creepy and unnerving. After all, not only does the opening scene take place in a mausoleum, it takes place in a mausoleum during a storm. How creepy is that? There's no long story introduction, no cliches or overused lines. This is a very, very good game.
The puzzles are at just the right level to keep you moving ahead without causing undue frustration, yet aren't so easy you move to fast or get bored. You really get to go from scene to scene and investigate, just like you're part of the movie.
This is my favorite ghost game right now and you all should try it. This will be one you will want to own so you can play all the way to the end. I'm sure of it.
Play for an hour, for free. If you choose to purchase the game, a portion of your purchase supports this site.
Exorcist - This is a ghost game for demon hunters, for sure. I find this ghost game to be a bit more challenging than the others I've played so far. In some cases you have to use items in the evironment to solve each level. It's a puzzle game as well as a seek and find game. The graphics are amazing and the background music is spooky. It's perfect for an evening alone in the dark, muhahaha! And with each level, you banish another demon. So grab your holy water, your mouse and prepare yourself for spooky ride as you become . . . the Exorcist!
You can play this game for free and if you choose to buy it, it helps the site.

Ghost Town Mysteries: Bodie - I didn't find this ghost game very scary, but it takes place in a desert ghost town, Bodie (hence the name). You get to solve the murders, explore abandoned buildings and socialize with the ghosts out in the tumbleweeds. It's captivating in that the puzzles are fun and graphics, clear and stunning. You're probably going to like this game, but for me, I'm not a big fan of ghost towns (I don't like westerns, either), so this isn't at the top of the my list. But play for hour for free and see what you think.
Treasure Seekers: Follow the Ghosts - Brother and sister team up in this ghost game to find the ghost in a house. Puzzles are more complex as you cover several rooms to conquer one puzzle. Not a super easy game, but relaxing and interesting all the same.
Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors - Wow! I love this ghost game. I like all of these games, but this is up in the top 10 for me.
Maybe it's because it's about a haunted house. I love haunted houses for some reason and this one is complete with creepy sound effects: footsteps, creaking floors and mournful music. Inside the house are mirrors that possess your soul. Sucked inside, and bound forever, you must find a way to escape - which is, of course, where the clues come in handy.
The puzzles are different than many other games and the challenge level is perfect. You don't feel completely stumped, but at the same time, you don't feel like it's so easy, even a caveman--I mean--kid can do it. In fact, the entire time I was play, I felt as thought I was in an interactive movie, rather than a game. It's a puzzle game, a hidden object game, but has a fluid script so you progress along very nicely. The entire time, completely aware you're in a haunted house.
Excellent ghost game. I highly recommend it!
