Ive wanted to play SS1+2 but I cant get the Dosbox to work for SS1 and for SS2 I had problems as well. there are supposed to be graphics updates for the games as well but its hard to find info because you have to surf forums and scrounge for answers.

I might just have to settle for a lets play of it on YT


Amnesia
Penumbra
Stalker at times
Metro 2033 at times (great game bad ending),
Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the Earth (PC version has a bug on the ship where u cant pass, so xbox version is better I think or if you have an older PC. Or you can find a save game past that point which is what I had to do. Game is pretty buggy but VERY scary especially the hotel... wow that was probably the scariest thing ever... also its challenging.)

RE2 was scary to me when I first played it.
The Suffering PC+Xbox(which is free on PC just google for it)

Theif Deadly Shadows has one level in it towards the end, its a haunted insane asylum for children or just people. The game is worth playing and that level is just terror.

For all these games play alone with headphones no light and preferable at night. Otherwise you ruin the atmosphere. And dont tell urself its just a game and to calm down because I found that works for me but if you do it you are just ruining the feeling of terror that we so seldom experience IRL. Let the game take you in and when you die its your life.

It has two endings. I didn't find much wrong with either of them, especially considering that it has a sequel on the way.

Dead space isn't scary its just difficult. The developers use outnumbering tactics in lieu of real scares.

The first game had great atmosphere and made me jump several times. Still one of my favorite games. biggrin.gif The second game was too much about the weapons and shooting. Lost everything that I loved about the first one. mad.gif

I think Cry of fear is scarier than amnesia. Cry of fear made me yell so many times...

Does any one remember Phantasmagoria and the sequel Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh? They were done by Sierra Entertainment and Kronos Digital Entertainment. These games were from the mind of Roberta Williams best known at the time for her Kings's Quest series. I remember at the time it was the scariest game I had ever played.

Half Life 2: 'We don't go to Ravenholm', that is all.

EDIT: Also the part in Bioshock where you walk into a room and all the light go out except for one spotlight and enemies start running at you from all directions from the pitch black. I practically defecated when I played that part the first time. tongue.gif

Resident Evil 2 and 3... When I played those when they first came out I thought they were scary and loved Resident Evil series. I'm not sure how it is now though.

Added a poll, makes things so much easier and will hopefully prevent another thread of the same kind being made for quiet some time. Any game that's not listed just comment and i'll add it in
