LOL! At first I was positive he was joking, but towards the end of the movie, you start to realize he's not joking at all.

Oh man... only ten bucks.

I HATE horror games, but I'm so tempted to buy it.

No. I just watched another video.

There's no reason to put myself through that kind of stress.

:lol:

It's the most stressful game I've ever played.

In a good way.

In that big theater room you have, alone, in the dark. :lol:

I probably wouldn't have the balls either.

ah fuck it, maybe I'll get it.

I hate survival horror games, but I always play them anyway. RE4/5, Dead Space, Condemned 1 and 2...

Condemned 2 was a massive steaming crock of shite, but for me the original was the finest launch title on the 360. I was blown away by it! Loved every minute, same for Dead Space. I love the new breed of survival horrors. Always found the older Resident Evils cool, but really clunky. RE4 really moved the genre on in a good way IMO.

I really do need to try get a gaming PC at some point as I do wanna check Amnesia out.

I agree that Condemned 2 wasn't nearly as good as its predecessor, but I didn't think it was THAT bad :)

Tbh, it was probably more the shock of how mediocre it was, after how epic the original was lol. I was psyched for another awesome game. Hoping Dead Space 2 won't follow the trend lol.

This puts all those games to shame from a horror/stress inducing standpoint.

This game is literally hard to play because of how fucking creepy it is. I can barely go 30 mins at a time before my nerves are completely shot. There are times my brain is saying what the guy in the video is saying. It's just fucked up. You become scared to open doors.

It's a game that manages to effect the player like no other. You'll really feel it.

Eiger you're freaking dumb. I wouldn't even try it in a theater room. I can't even play it with headphones. An enclosed room would just make it impossible. It's gonna require some valium or something.

Can you imagine playing this on a 120 inch projector screen, with surround sound? F THAT NOISE

This game feels like a giant ambush/trap every second. And the worst part is, you have no defenses or attacks.

Yep.

Starting this game at midnight in the dark basement with the speaker system was a questionable decision.

I was hearing sounds that aren't audible through your smaller PC speakers/headphones. At one point I paused the game, went to go look behind the back wall curtain outside because I swore I heard something outside. Scared the livin crap out of me. I need to figure out how I'm going to play the rest of the game.

It's meant to be played in the dark!

Oh yeah, I was playing in pitch dark with HiFi surround sound. Only way to play games period.

If you guys like this you should check out Penumbra. There's three of them. Kinda like mini episodes. ~5 hrs each. Same control system (cool manual door and drawer opening ftw), different setting.

I highly recommend it. It's also Mac compatible if you own more than one scarf.
