Ever since I played Amnesia for the first time I've become a sucker for good horror games. Don't confuse that with games like Resident Evil where you can just shoot everything and move forward I never felt that was scary. If you can fight everything that shows up than its not really that scary. Amnesia is the first game that I played where you are completely helpless. Hide or die is the motto.
Then I found Penumbra super cheap and got all 3 episodes for little over a dollar. I been meaning to play it for ages but now I actually am. Overture is the first episode in the series and while its not as scary as Amnesia yet its still pretty intense. Yes you can fight but combat is so awkward and clunky you want to avoid more than fight. Besides most of the monsters are unkillable so fighting them is just to stun so you can escape. The story is confusing and disturbing. This ended on quite the cliffhanger and I'm looking forward to continuing the series in Black Plague.
