Condemned 2 doesn't come out till the 4th of April does it? Dang, don't say the US beat us to it again
I want my Condemned 2 damn it!!!!
F.E.A.R was not scary at all, even in the slightest. The only scare tactic in the game was ghostly voices and shadows on walls. I don't see what frightened people about the game.
IMO Condemned owned F.E.A.R hands down when it comes to scare tactics, that is the only game that has genuinely made me jump more time that i fired bullets.

Then FEAR, with its static on the radio and nails-on-a-blackboard sound effects, along with Alma herself.
Not played Condemned or Suffering but intend to
System Shock made me change undies the first time the ghosts appeared, Silent Hill is a good one too.
For me, psychological horror will always win out over slasher horror
You seriously need to play Condemned, it was designed around psychological horror. You have pretty much zero ammo, it's just drain pipes and homeless crazy people
