Seriously, theres barely any good Horror-Mods, and there should be. this, in short, is a group for all the gamers who feel left out of the mod-playing communities just because its hard to make or find something scary.

Yes, I'm bringing the group back to life (or trying to). Heres a list of the more noteworthy mods:

Afraid of Monsters(Half Life 1)
Afraid of Monsters: Directors Cut ( Half Life 1)
Mistake ( Half Life 1)
Pre-Mistake (Half Life 1)
They hunger ( Half Life 1)
PARANOIA (Half Life 1)
SMOD:Outbreak (Half Life 2)
Nightmare House ( Half Life 2)
Nightmare House:Remake ( Half Life 2)
Get a Life ( Half Life 2)
Nightmare House 2 (Half Life 2)
The Worry of Newport (Crysis)

TFO will finally come to Steam, this gives me much motivation to redo a lot of things before TFO will be released as a standalone game!...

For those the liked the Penumbra series the developer released a new game called Amnesia: The Dark Descent a little while ago. It's one of the scariest games I've ever played, and definitely one of the most intense!! You can get it off Steam for $20. Just look it up and you'll see what I mean about the scariness.

I disagree. I didn't enjoy Amnesia nearly as much as I did penumbra. It was way too ham handed and spoon fed you each scare, forcing you to physically stop and look like a kid showing off his toys. The story was also garbage. :/

Amnesia has a good sense of immersion and atmosphere at some moments and that's about it. Very weak effort by the people who made the best horror game made (Black Plague).

I have to disagree with you also. :P The creature design this time around was much more horrid, and that, along with the sanity loss in darkness +visual/audio distortions (although cheap sometimes) and better sound design added to a ridiculous amount of intensity. While later in the game I admit it became predictable when a baddie would appear, the mid and early stages are pretty freakin scary.

I'll never forget the time I was first spotted by a brute; the shrill tone in your ears along with dancing vision as I booked it for the door without looking back. All I heard was my guy panicking and running for his life along with the excited, guttural moans of my assailant. I was killed in one hit about 5 feet from safety. XD

Hey, everyone's different, I'm not going to bash what you do or do not enjoy in horror. To me amnesia felt too scripted and relied too much on the dark. I do agree that some elements were amazing (The music, the monster design, and one or two scenes stuck heavily to my mind) but the overall consistent package was, to me, lacking.

Take for example the design of the monster encounters. If you look at one your guy goes crazy slowly. If you hide in the darkness anywhere, your guy goes crazy slowly. If you run you'll probably die. It's a catch-22 to me, it feels half implemented. When both hiding, and looking at, the monsters causes the same negative impact, one realizes that just dying and respawning removes the monster from the level entirely.

Immersion breaking gameplay choices like this ruin it for me. Call of Cthulhu and Eternal Darkness did insanity much better to me. Amnesia was decent, but not great. Penumbra is still my all time favorite.

Cool to see a group dedicated to enjoying what I also love. I'm making a horror mod for Crysis, hopefully it interests you guys. :) Check out the moddb page for it some time.

Anyway, I didn't enjoy Nightmare House 2. Too much like FEAR for my tastes. I prefer real "horror". Story, atmosphere, immersion > Guns, monsters, explosions

ehh, to me theres a difference between horror and adrenaline pumping scares.
Horror to me is more of a Nightmare house 2 game, you've got enough supplies, but you gotta make em last, you can expect certin things to happen but its gonna make you jump either way, and aside from that i like a tad of realism. Nightmare House 2 was sorta lifelike in a way, it was pretty scary and tbh i think they should get into making actual horror games.

I disagree. Horror to me is more about lovecraft than action with monsters. Dead Space, Nightmare House, FEAR, etc. They aren't even horror games to me. If you have the option to fight back at all besides for conventional means, it's not horror. Slow motion gun fighting, for example, shatters that mold.

A horror game should have a horror oriented plot, atmosphere, pacing and character arc that makes you interested and immersed in what's going on. Game's like Call of cthulhu, penumbra, cryostasis and hell, even stalker for it's atmosphere and monsters and night time immersion.

I agree, deadspace was only scare the first time something jumped out at me, but after the first few minutes i knew pretty much every trick the monsters had. and it just became more of a "Resident evil 4" style game.
And i agree, slow-motion and special effects ruin it, i love seeing games where its an average person uing average things to fight back. I'd give examples, but the only one i can think of is SIlent Hill, but technally since in the first one you can beat a boss with the pipe, in the 2nd you have a giant sword, and in the third your a "god" thing, its not exactally "scary".
Also i just have to stick up for Nightmare House 2- and say this: Yes, i agree that its a bit..unordinary, but at the same time its still a good game. Technally; the first Nightmare House, since it was fairly slow paced, might have made the character used to the horror, so in the 2nd one he was able to expect it more. also the voice of the doctor, basically your only hope, might have fueled him to fight through the nightmare.
I do agree though, that a hospital that randomly had axes, security rooms with a single [break glass in case of emergency] pistol, and evil doctors building huge basements with contraptions to confuse and kill people, does seem....lame, but to me the game still pulled off being scary.

Ye, and Nightmare House 2 was really better than I thought it would be (And I thought it's mega-awesome before playing it!!)
So, great mod, the Horror-genre is one of the greatest ones anyway!

yeah, but sadly its getting harder and harder to pull off "horror"
you gotta make sure your not just getting cheep scares, make sure your not passing off hordes of laughably weak zombies as "scary", or saying something depressing (omaigawd every1 dies a horrible death? D:) is scary.
Nightmare House 2 managed to include a bit of those, but they used it in just the right way for it to really be scary. Which is funny, because most modern-actual games that are "horror", like Resident Evil:Remake, are mostly cheep scares.
