Before I start, I would like to say that this is my first blog ever, so please excuse any silly mistakes.
This blog will concentrate on my gaming experiences, in which I will be talking about pros and cons of certain games (Almost like a review)
The first game I will be discussing is an indie game called Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The developers (Frictional Games) have done an AMAZING job at creating an eery and frightening game. The game is based around your character having amnesia (as the title would suggest). Your character (Daniel) has written a note to himself, describing what needs to be done. However, a lot of background information is missing. You then set out, alone, through Brennenburg Castle, doing as you told yourself. As you walk through the castle, you do not have any weapons. You must hide from your enemies, eliminating any light source. But doing so will send Daniel into a panic-state, making his sanity slowly drop. Paranormal sightings and visual horrors will also make Daniel's sanity drop.
Amnesia is a game in which you have to immerse yourself, otherwise you will not have as good as an experience as you should. By using sound and visual cues, the developers will make you tense, stressed and worried as to what will happen next.
I found this game to be one of the best horror games I have ever played, and strongly recommend it to anyone after a fright.
