Hi everyone. I'm just now getting back into gaming after being away for several years and I'd really like to sink my teeth into something that scary, with great ambience, that has a first person interface (I'm not big on 3rd person) and that would basically suck me into its world and make me a prisoner for as long as played the game. lol

Does anyone have any ideas of where I can start?

Thanks so much!!!
Tracy

hmm... this might not be the answer you're looking for -- but i found the 7th Guest very scary. it's an old game though.

i'm a third person junkie, so nothing else is coming to mind right now.

Amber, Dark Fall, Zork: Nemesis, Dracula: Resurrection & The Last Sanctuary (play these back-to-back as they tell a single story), and most especially The Blackstone Chronicles all reign as some of the best first-person point-and-click horror adventure games.

Phantasmagoria 1 & 2 and Shivers 1 & 2 both have devoted fan bases, though less universal critical praise.

LOL That's okay Emily. I DID play 7th Guest when it first came out, but you know, I haven't ever played the 11th Hour. Hey, you've given me an idea! LOL LOL

Hey... I'm the suggestion guy!

You can find reviews of both Amber and Dark Fall down in the Boomer Reviews forum. (Yes, this is a plug. So shoot me.) From there you can find links to the Staff and Member Reviews, where I am sure you can get critiques of the others I mentioned.

If you don't mind a bit of shooting, try System Shock 2. If this doesn't give you the shivers, nothing will. Seriously, you can play this game with very few shooting around.

If you want a pure adventure, try The Dark Eye. Superb atmosphere, unique style and scary as hell! Not hard to come by in eBay.

Necronomicon was surely creepy. It was probably one of the first adventure games I played so I dont remember details but I remember liking it a whole lot.

How about the Dracula Resurrection and Last Sanctuary games? Great graphics and great horror stories......also first person. smile (oops, sorry, BacardiJim, didn't see that you had already listed those games at first!!)

Plus Inherent Evil.....

Although the Thief series is not technically horror, you do run into the undead, it is first person, and the ambiance of the game will definitely get the heart pumping as you hide in the shadows hoping the enemies never spot you.

There's nothing finer than the rush of trying to sneak in the dark on some unsuspecting heavily armed foe with only your trusty blackjack as a weapon. Then giving him a love tap to the back of the head and hurriedly trying to hide the body before his buddies find out...

Thanks

the phantasmagoria games are 3rd person, not first.

there is also supposed to be a new sequel to the 7th guest coming out... haven't heard anything about it in awhile, though.

Definitely, Dark Fall. Sooooo spooky. And it's been recently released, so you can buy it almost anywhere (yeah, Jonathan!) laugh

Black Dahlia and Ripper, if you have a computer that will play them.

I'm not sure if Zork Nemesis qualifies as horror, but it was definitely creepy.

What is Realm of the Haunting?
If that is first that is a good game.
