Actually even better than AVp2 would be the marine campaign in avp 1. But yeah somehow I think it wouldn't be as bad if the motion sensor wasn't there. Tweet tweet tweet * silence* *silence* Twet twet twet twet twet twet twet twet :P

Dead Space is immersive, disturbing, and at times seriously gut-wrenching. I can imagine that effect would be amplified significantly in the dark and with a good headset on.

Killing Floor is more terror/panic-inspiring than it is 'traditionally' scary, but it does have a knack for creating situations where you'll jump out of your skin, turn tail and run as if your life (not your toon's) depended on it. The same could be said about Left 4 Dead. While the fear doesn't come from the same place as Doom 3, it's still fear nonetheless and you're likely to get some frenetic heart-stopper moments on frequent occasions. "karmic punchline" would be an understatement for how quickly things can go from smooth sailing, to south of the border of sanity. :p


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

I totally forgot about Dead Space. Definitely one of the best horror games ever made. It's not just the visuals but the audio in this game that is chilling. It would seriously be immersive with headphones in the dark. :eek:

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines has some scary moments in it, particularly the haunted house level, and the snuff video house. Clive Barker's Undying is pretty much one big haunted house too, with a whole bunch of good moments in it, assuming you can get it to work...

I heard the controls on the PC version sucked for Dead Space. Can anyone confirm?

A lot of people say that, but I find it's just right for a game of this type. Resident Evil is a game with very clunky no-strafe, no-sprint movement. Dead Space's movement falls somewhere between RE and your typical shooter, leaning way more toward the typical.

The intent was to create a sense of panic with the combination of close range weapons and melee (foot stomping, weapon smacking) in a 3rd person perspective without severely limiting your movement. You DO have a heavy mining suit on though, so you can only sprint short distances.
