Do you like scary games?
For me, any game that immerses me into its own little world is a game for me. If it has the odd scary bit to it, all the better. A great example: Half-Life.
However, I just found out about this new game called Amnesia – The Dark Descent. The reviews are somewhat decent for a puzzle and interaction game. But what people are raving about the most is how truly scary this game is.
I think what makes this game so successful is that it relies on the user’s own imagination and fear. It then continues to feed your fear the more you get into the game. I don’t want to spoil this game at all, so I won’t get into the story. But, if you’re a big fan of making your heart race and you’re not squeamish, then this is a game you should check out.
Personally, I won’t play this. Not because of the game play, but because my heart wouldn’t take it. 😉
Don’t take my word for it. Here’s an example of someone who is quite ‘immersed’ in the game: (NOTE: NSFW due to language and intense scenes) (courtesy of You Tube)
