In "The Hidden", players choose the role of either a near invisible killer, Subject 617, or one member of an Intercept squad who have to capture him, I.R.I.S. In the simple but challenging gameplay of an 'one against all'? mode, Subject 617 creeps/sneaks through the maps armed only with a knife and three pipe bombs. The IRIS team carry a selection of weaponry, fully customisable at round start, from F2000 assault rifles through to shotguns or sub machine guns as well as a pistol as a secondary weapon. However, they can hardly see Subject 617 as, just like the 'Predator', only the outline of his silhouette is visible. On top of that the Hidden also moves a little faster and has many abilites such as pouncing, wall grabbing, corpse pinning and the fatal pigsticker attack. Therefore co-operation is necessary for I.R.I.S. if they wish to prevail (if they dont want to become the prey/victim themselves). This leads to an outstanding gaming experience on public servers:...

Report article RSS Feed Top 10 Spookiest Mods EVER!

This Halloween ModDB digs into the horror archives, and takes a look at the top 10 spookiest mods of all time as voted by our community.

Posted by INtense! on Nov 2nd, 2008

Horror has always been an area modders have explored in great detail over the years. In fact one of the first "big name" showcased mods, featured in PC Gamer and plenty of other places (back in the day when PC mags ruled the world) was They Hunger - a horror classic. Since They Hunger many horror themed mods have been released, some dark, some zombie based, some eerieely quiet and some edge of your seat "packed full of action".

So if you are prone to wetting your pants at the slightest scare these are probably not the titles for you. If however you crave something spooky this Halloween - sit back, dim the lights and enjoy ModDBs first ever mod countdown - as we take a look at the top 10 spookiest mods of all time as voted by our community.

Don't forget to watch this group for any more ModDB Mod Countdown's to come!

Afraid of Monsters: Directors Cut really scared the **** out of me. I think it's because of the music, the freakish creatures and a flashlight that eats up batteries quick. I like how the game will spawn creatures behind you while you are fighting something in front of you. It gets really intense, trust me on this!

If Nightmare House 2 was out before this video was made it would have been 2nd and aom:DC would be first probably, or the other way around. :D

Exactly, PARANOIA is the best and top 8.
(What now, who will survive the massive paranoia?)
I like when they have released PARANOIA 2.
(With more massive paranoia, more action, uses
some HAVOK Physics, new weapons like M16A2 | M203,
Berreta, Attachments and MOAR!)

I played both AoM: DC and ZP:S, and I pick AoM, it was far scarier. I'd never know if there would be a monster behind me unless it growls or attacks, and about half the game is too dark to see without your flashlight.

Out of that whole list, i've only played 2 of the mods which where AOM:DC and They Hunger. Great mods. I might play Paranoia and might get Half Life 2 just to play its mods.
