This Is Going To Be The Prettiest Amnesia Ever!
So I went and bought Amnesia: The Dark Ascent. If you've never heard of it, watch their unedited gameplay video.
I bought this after hearing about how scary it was, etc etc, so I turned off the lights and loaded the game from my windowless basement room (which happens to be next to the furnace) and began to play.
After 30 seconds I had to turn on the lights. =\
I played it with headphones at night, and maybe it is the ambiance but this game manages to combine gameplay mechanics and sounds to make it absolutely unnerving.
This game is terrifying, and I have only seen an "enemy" once. And that was just a silhouette on the other end of a hallway, which prompted me to cower like a small child until it went away.
Possibly I am just a sissy. But I am enjoying this game in the most horrifying of ways. D=
