Best game ever?
If not it is definitely close with the way it weaves it's great narrative in with the gameplay to tell a story in a new way. What do you think?

I just finished this one. I dunno about best, but I absolutely loved the ending.

Clarence was such a well written character though, the way he made you love to hate him. As far as I'm concerned Frictional is the only company that comes close to Valve as far as quality goes.

Gah. Just played 90 mins of the next one and its been terrible. No atmosphere, no horror. Just lots of jumping puzzles. :(

Yeah, it's crap but it's ending is major food for thought

I enjoy Playing Penumbra Black Plague but the thing that i really like about it is Clarence.He tricks your mind into thinking "wasn't a door there before?" and then him telling you you went past it and to turn around and you see it so it looks like you're being dumb but my point is its a REALLY good game.

I'd never call it the best game ever, but this game + Overture (I consider them to be one game) are revolutionary. Basically every upcoming horror game is trying to copy Penumbra's mechanics. Nothing was this revolutionary since the original Silent Hill.

The game scared my soul out of me. Couldn't play it all way through even with my lights on

This game was absolutely phenominal and, personally, I found it's plot and depth exceeding Amnesia in almost every way. I would not consider it "the best game ever" but it certainly came close.

Amnesia is much better than this, you should try it

Overture and Black Plague had such a great plotline going, the main characters were all well written and scripted; the story and atmosphere synchronised perfectly to the environment and setting of the game.

All these on top of the gameplay and it's respective mechanics.

Even if Requiem was only a couple hours of puzzling and platforming, the dialogue and narrative you get whilst you're playing really helps with fleshing out the story you've been a part of in Overture and Black Plague.

Overall, I've yet to see a game match the themes and storytelling brought into the Penumbra trilogy; hence why It's a big favourite of mine.
