I am playing Alien Isolation
at the moment. My last play session yesterday morning ended with me hiding in a locker for ten whole minutes wondering what I was going to do next. At this point I'd recommend it, though finishing the game may actually be impossible at this point.
I haven't played any of the classics like RE or Silent Hill.
is the obvious one, but I got stuck in that (possibly also hiding in a cupboard) and never finished it.
was pretty scary at times, and is a good game to boot. Dead Space 2 is not scary at all and not recommended.
is a game which can be terrifying at times, and it's a horror that arises from feeling lost and helpless (kind of like the Blair Witch feeling) but that horror may not appear until you're reasonably deep into the game (or it may happen straight away, I dunno). However it is a genre which will not appeal to most people, I think.
I only ever played the first level so I dunno.
One idea would be to play individual levels from video games rather than full games - eg play the Ravenholme
level from HL2
. This would require you to be able to reach/load up that level though. I remember the village level in Resistance 3
being quite spooky, though the game in general is not.
Aside: Did they not release a physical version of Alien Isolation for PC then? Poor, but I guess the writing is on the wall. I am assuming there is no difference between next-gen and last-gen on the consoles, it seems fine on PS3. Cutscenes are a bit shonky at the beginning but all else is fine.
Yeah, so games or specific level recommendations welcome here too
! Just the right level of creepiness and playability
