Default Amnesia & co.

So I recently finished to play through Penumbra: Black Plague and Amnesia The Dark Descent and I don' t think I' ll play these games again for a while cuz they scared THE SHIT outta me =D. I mean Penumbra: Overture was ok because u could "kill" or at least "fight" your enemyes and It was still creepy, but Black Plague and ESPECIALLY Amnesia really fucked up my shit, dosen' t not matter If during daytime or nightime (so If u want u can call me a pussy now I don' t care =3)
So I think these two games are a true masterpiece, I mean the sound was awesome the aura these games spread was delightfully terrifying and the atmosphere was incredible especially in Amnesia (again i know), I am not gonna talk about textures and graphics because If u want to play a graphics game u can go on and play Crysis or some other games wich I don' t remember at the momnet

So my question is: are there any other games like the ones from Frictional Games ? I don' t wanna hear Silent Hill or RE cuz In my opinion (after playing through Amnesia) these games aren' t scary at all ( no offense to the fans of these games I played nearely all of them and they where all good except some)

My second question is: did u play Amnesia or any of the Penumbra games ?
If yes what is your opinion about them (or It) ?


In the end there is only Chaos...

I played through Penumbra Overture and Amnesia Dark Descent. Amnesia really got to me, and I had to start playing it in the daytime with the lights on and my wife around to laugh at me and ease the tension. No one should be ashamed about being afraid because of these games, after all, that is the point of the game.

As far as I know you won't find any other games where you really can't fight back and are always on the edge of your seat. Most other 'scary' games give you the ability to fight what attacks you, such as Bioshock (spooked me the first time I played it) or Dead Space. I'd say your best bet would be Resident Evil 5. I know some people loved it, but with it's broken controls and inability to move and chew gum at the same time, you might as well be helpless. Not really scary though.

Again, I think your best bet is to wait for a sequel to Amnesia.

I hope there won' t be a sequal cuz It would kill the game...
Well I think I' ll give dead space a try...
