Amnesia : The Dark Descent

All right, so I might actually have to try Amnesia at some point... It looks as if it has what their previous game, Penumbra, had... only done right. See, in penumbra they did the whole 'we're going to terrify you to the point of pant-shitting' thing going... which was immediately and utterly destroyed by actually SEEING the enemy and subsequently fighting and defeating it. With a rock. Thrown at its face. Multiple times. This completely destroyed the horror aspect, caused me to quit the game in disgust, and delete the bastard off of my computer.
Apparently the gods of gaming were listening to me that day and came back with the same pant-shitting theme, only you get absolutely ZERO ways to fight the enemies. This intrigues me... it intrigues me to the point I'll probably try it. I might even livestream it if I get enough interest in it.

  1. This game made me so nauseous I couldn't even play it. I heard it was pretty scary though, and it is good to see Respawn making quality stuff.
