I am a huge horror fan, both in literature, graphic novels, movies, music and games. I have a vast library of horror movies, categorized by country of origin. French, Italian, Korean, Japanese, American etc... I go to horror movie marathons, comic cons and collector's meets and listen to a lot of dark ambient, dark industrial, black metal and death metal music. Some people have said that I've become too detached from brutality and am practically incapable of feeling empathy or fear because of my almost two decades-long constant exposure to horror movies and related themes. I'm not trying to brag, I'm just trying to give you some reference as to where I'm coming from.
Now let me tell you, the following game scared the living beejeebus out of me.
It's probably mentioned already in this thread, but can't be mentioned enough in general. I haven't been this scared in a LONG time. This game was almost a challenge to play, not because of the gameplay, but because of the emotions it invoked within me. You really feal like a victim when playing, or should I say enduring, this game. Insanity simulator. Still can't sleep on windy nights. Loved every single minute of it.
Darkness, headphones, Amnesia...
