Horror games PART I

Wondering which game has the potential to scare the living hell out of you and keep your heart pumping?Well, hopefully I will be able to satisfy your needs with the following post.
                                   White Day: A Labyrinth Named School (FPS)

The not well known Korean game White Day is a must have in case you look for something to frighten you. With its dark and horrific atmosphere it will keep you at the edge of your seat as you explore the school. Your character does not have the ability to attack and your only defense is to hide from what's chasing you. Frequent scratches on the wall and appearing ghosts will make sure your adrenaline reaches high levels. The game also has multiplayer feature giving a real time scare factor to the game as online players can pick to play from a host of horrors such as a ghost, devil, or janitor or - as per the single player mode - a hapless and unarmed school kid.

                                                    Resident Evil 5

I'm sure this title needs no introduction but for those who don't know  Resident evil 5 is a great sequel which takes Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar in Kijuju, a fictional town in Africa where the characters have to investigate a terrorist threat. RE 5 has similar gameplay mechanics to RE 4, with the same over the top camera. What's new here is that you can play through the whole campaign with a friend, whether split screen on xbox 360/PS3 or lan on PC. The game will hardly scare you, but it has this survival feeling to it, blocking doors to prevent zombies from entering, having limited ammo, running from big zombies with chainsaws and whatnot.

The focus on the story here is on a group of high school students who stumble upon a laboratory in which biological experiments are being performed. The story of the game was inspired by the movie The Faculty. As in Resident Evil 5, here you have a two player mode making the game twice as fun. The game is available for the PS2, Xbox and PC.

                                          Amnesia: The Dark Descent (FPS)
Amnesia is a horror game by the makers of Penumbra which puts the player in the role of Daniel, a young man from London who wakes up  in the Prussian Brennenburg Castle with no memory about himself or his past. The game has physical object interaction as in Penumbra  which allows advanced physics based puzzles and various interactions such as opening doors and fixing machinery. A cool feature of this game is the sanity indicator. Being in darkness too long, witnessing unsettling events, or staring at the monsters for too long will reduce the character's sanity. As the sanity level decreases, visual and auditory hallucinations start to occur and the player is noticed by monsters more easily.

                                       Doom 3 
Yet another game that is well known by the gamer community. Filled with "jump out of your seat" moments, Doom 3 takes us in a Mars City Base where the player has to deal with zombies and demonic creatures. Due to the facility's position on Mars, the the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC) can perform its operations outside of legal and moral boundaries. As the player progresses through the game, they learn that the employees on the base are unsettled due to a large number of incidents involving hearing voices, unexplained sightings and increasing cases of paranoia and insanity, often leading to fatal accidents with the facility's machinery. Make sure you play Doom 3 alone in the dark, like this guy here.

Story 4

During one summer in the 1950s, a group of friends found an old abandoned house in the woods. They entered to see what they could find. There was a hole dug in the ground filled with water. Three of the boys decided to swim, while the other stayed dry and took pictures of the house with his camera.

Thirty some years later, in 1982, a man was hiking and found an old camera. He took it to the local police station to try and find out who it belonged to. The police got the film developed. Most of the photos had been destroyed, save for a vew.

This picture is the last picture that was taken. It is unknown what happened to the boys' faces or why the series of pictures abruptly ended. The kids have never been identified and their bodies were never found. What is happening in this image still remains a mystery.

Dead alien found in Russia

Around one month ago this publication reported on a major UFO event that occurred in the region of Irkutsk in Russia's Siberia. Hundreds of villagers saw a huge object, glowing pink and blue, hurtle towards Earth before loudly impacting the ground in a wooded area . The event received widespread coverage in Russia and was reported by Inter-fax, Russia's government news agency. In the West the event was completely ignored if not deliberately kept from public view. Now it seems a video has been leaked onto the Internet showing a dead Alien, found in the Republic of Buryatia, not far from the site of the UFO crash. Is the alien seen in this video a survivor of that crash who managed to leave the area only to die as a result of Russia's harsh conditions?

Breaching Area 51

A really interesting video that might make you wonder "what will happen if I rush into area 51".

Short horror movie

Story 3

I just got done playing one of the SCARIEST video games ever. Now, hear me out before saying, "Oh, he's probably just a fag that gets scared of everything." I don't get scared of video games or movies. I've played many survival horror games and have seen many horror movies in my day. The only thing that made me just a tiny bit scared were some parts of Penumbra and Condemned. Everything else was just boring. This game was different. VERY different.
You aren't given any sort of backstory to the game at all. As soon as you press play, it throws you right into the game. However, I was able to piece together what the story basically is through finally beating this little brick shitter. Apparently, you're a madman. We're never given the name, but you can guess what it is if you pay attention to the title screen. For some reason, you escaped from whatever mental hospital room you were hiding in. Now, the very horrid state of your mind has transformed the halls of the hospital into nothing but a pitch black maze with the only light being the walls, which glow a deathly blue.
Your character is apparently some type of mad cannibal that you can barely control. You can force him to turn corners in the creepy hallway, but not much else can be done. Your character seems to grab anything and try to eat it; whatever is in front of him is thrown into his mouth and he munches it down.
While playing the game, you're being chased by four hideous and fucking scary ghost monsters. You cannot hurt them at all, and to come even close to one is instant death, in which the ghost latches onto you and rips you inside all, all while you hear the horrible noise of your body being torn.
You can, however, eat some odd objects hidden in the maze, after which your character goes into an even more unstable state. You can literally EAT the ghost monsters. Your character runs right up to them and devours them, only leaving their eyes.
There aren't any words to describe how horrific and terrifying this game is, and I don't want to spoil the surprises for you. Just go ahead and try it for yourself. Google the word Pac-Man. You'll find it on the first search.
