Ahhhhh .... Gabriel Knight : The Beast Within. I certainly agree !! I'd forgotten about that one
And the crow in Barrow Hill, too. Definitely got shocked by that .... Yikes
But Draclvr, aren't Amnesia the Dark Descent and Vampire the Masquerade both classed as Darkside and not Adventure ??
[ I could list several Darkside games myself that scared the pants off me !!
