A new video has been released to promote Capcom's Dead Rising 2: Off the Record in the wake of Halloween, begging the question of what games you chose to scare yourselves silly this year?

We put the question to you in our The Scariest Games feature yesterday, where we talked about what we thought were some of the scariest we've ever played. Popular candidates included FEAR, Condemned: Criminal Origins and Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Dead Rising 2 and its DLC counterpart Dead Rising 2: Off the Record was left off the list because, as we explained in our review of the game, the series is more defined by its humor than its horror.

'The Dead Rising series, with it's pulpy crassness and commitment to immaturity, has always felt like the worst trends of the comic book industry scraped up and dumped in a barrel,' we said in our review of Off the Record.

'[That's] made for a consistently irreverent adventure filled with deliciously objectionable content and regular laughs. Zombies! Insanity! Sex-crazed psychopaths!'

Check out the video below and let us know what you played last night in the forums.
