But I did come up with a gem while I was out exploring. I enjoy playing scary games. I've played System Shock and Condemned and pretty much any game that has a worthwhile thrill to it. However, the passed week I found two different games that span the spectrum of fear, and by fear I mean both the prolonged "Shit, I can't play this anymore" fear, as well as the "Ah, that zombie sure did pop up fast. Good show, zombie."
These games are Amnesia: the dark descent, and Nightmare House 1 and 2 Mod for the PC. Let me tell you about this shit,
Amnesia is a super weird game when you first look at it. You have no weapons, no super powers. You're a normal, human being. Actually, you're worse. You're more of a coward then anything. The character starts out unconscious on the floor of an abandoned castle, with nothing. When you come across a monster, and you will, you run away like a little girl. This is normally where the fear comes in. The running isn't even all that fast, either. So, usually, you either run into yourself finding a room to hide in, or you wind up tiring yourself out being chased and flat out die. The fast-paced shocks you'll get from these encounters will actually keep you afraid for the entire playtime. I totally recommend this game.
Nightmare House 1 and 2 is a free mod for Halflife 2: episode 2. These games aren't all that long, but the entire game is filled, and yes, I mean filled to the fully-rotting house and infected hospital with scares that will get you every time. I enjoyed these games so much, I couldn't help but play them a second time. There's even an intricate story for those of you that like that shit. If you have halflife: episode 2 I would recommend buying this, and even if you don't have it, I would recommend buying it anyways. I mean, Halflife 2 is only 10 bucks, and the second episode is like, what, 7? For all the junk you can download online, I would totally say buy Halflife 2 or another source-powered game.
So, there we are. I decided I'd fill you guys in to the little gems I found.
