Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a first person survival horror. A game about immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. An experience that will chill you to the core.
Not only is this one of the few horror games I've played that has been able to illicit pure fear, but it does so without the use of cheap jump scares. Suspense and tension are used masterfully, combining visuals and sound perfectly in the ideal horror experience. This is reinforced by a story that is very well written and paced, with intrigue and mystery driving the player onward.
Simply PERFECT. The devs love games and love players. They thought about us and made the most incredible game of all time. Scary and INFINITE with Custom Stories, you can create everything by yourself... GOD ! it's just PERFECT !!!
THIS is an independant game, A REAL ONE !!!!
Thank you Frictional Games, we need much more people like you in PC GAMING WORLD !
LET'S BE FREE, BROTHERS & SISTERS !!!!
I played this not long after it was released but never remembered to rate.
This game is without a doubt one of the best games I have ever played, it's now 2013 and it's at the top of my recommendations list. It's a far bigger game than being scared all the time; it's so profound in terms of story telling and understanding the position of your character. It's deeply disturbing (in a good way), as you're making your way down dark corridors, wondering what is beyond the door you're about to open, whimpering as you turn a corner.
If you have not played this yet (unlikely), and you're thinking about playing it, do yourself a favor; play it, read every note you pick up, look at every picture you find, and most of all: have fun!
