Happy Halloween! This time last year we celebrated the day by revealing our favourite ghosts in Nintendo history. It caused some debate, mainly because we didn't include any Pokemon! Now it's your turn to redress the balance. Over the past few weeks you've been voting for your favourite gaming ghosts and here are the results. No prizes for guessing who comes out on top!
10. John Geist (Geist, GameCube)
This is a bit of a surprise! John Geist is the star of a GameCube adventure that was released towards the end of the console's life in 2005. It wasn't exactly showered with praise, either! Still, unlike most of the ghosts you've chosen, you actually get to play as the ghost in Geist. After a botched counter terrorist operation, Raimi was captured and had his soul torn from his body. Still, being a ghost has its advantages - Raimi can posses other humans, animals and ghosts. He didn't have a soul but he was soldier.
You say: "I thought Geist was a fantastic game, and the way the character of Raimi functioned was very clever." - Reecist
9. Gengar (Pokémon series)
We didn't include any Pokémon in our list but you have had your say and Gengar is the first of three 'mon to make this top ten. As an ever present since Pokémon Red/Blue, it's not hard to see why. Gengar evolves from Haunter when traded and is the final form of Gastly. With its red eyes, spiky back and evil grin, he is a creepy creature and he likes to hide in the shadows.
You say: "It's all about style. He's definitely my favourite ghost Pokémon. Just look at his hair..." - KrikenKing
8. King Boo (Luigi's Mansion)
You would have thought that the leader of the Boos would be higher up but then his identity did remain hidden until 2002 when he made his first appearance in Luigi's Mansion. Of course the mansion didn't belong to Luigi - King Boo created it and sent a letter to Mario's brother informing him that he had won it in a competition. Luigi sent Mario along to check it out but he was captured, leaving lanky brother to sort out the mess. Despite being the royal leader, King Boo isn't the biggest Boo. That would be Boolossus.
You say: "Loving Boos also means I love the Boo leader! Although, not as cute as Boos, he's still awesome in many ways. But more importantly...HE'S A BIG BOO!!!" - Cyberguy
7. Haunter (Pokémon series)
Another veteran from Red/Blue, Haunter evolves from Gastly and can become Gengar when traded. Seeing as Haunter's hands aren't attached to its body it does have a bit more of a ghostly appearance than Gengar and with sharp purple teeth, it looks every bit as fearsome. The fact that it likes to hide in the shadows and stalk its victims just makes Haunter even more creepy. It gets worse, though - it is also said to eat people's dreams by going inside them and scaring them to death. Look for Haunter if you dare in a graveyard near you.
You say: "I've often included one in my party because they are strategically sound, but I've chosen it mainly because I love the episode Haunter versus Kadabra in the cartoon series." - Lady Gagagged
6. Ghost Kirby (Kirby Squeak Squad)
It's hard to be scared by Ghost Kirby. After all, this is just a pink blob in ghost form. As you know, Kirby has the ability to copy his foe's abilities and in the DS game he can become a ghost. It's surprising that this ability has only appeared in the one game as it's so good. With this ability, Kirby can possess enemies to control them and use their abilities without getting hurt. It's not all-powerful though - he can't beat bosses as Ghost Kirby.
