lol I'm frequently surprised at individual reactions to games -- some people find a certain game terrifying, and other people say that it didn't frighten them at all.

Maybe there's a silver lining. Now that you know that you don't enjoy a game as scary as Darkness Within, you have a benchmark. In the future, when a new horror game releases, you can ask about the horror factor compared to Darkness Within in order to decide if you'll like it or not before you buy.

My problem is that although that i know a game may be terrifying i want to play it. Darkness within is terrifying but it's also a very nice game with a very nice story. I'll try to fight my fear. I think one way or another i'll play it... The only person that i know to accompany my is even worse than i am. he is scared to death lol

Well, you could take turns with the mouse -- one of you playing while the other sits well back, ready to run. lol

I'm laughing because the first scary game I played was Dark Fall: The Journal with my husband. We have rolling desk chairs at the computer, and every time we'd open a new door in the game, we'd both find outselves kicking back from the computer and rolling backwards in our chairs.

I've also found that muting the sound removes some of the scare factor -- sometimes quite a bit of the scare factor.

That sounds like fun. I guess i have to find someone brave enough to control the mouse.
I can't play a game with someone that has his eyes closed all the time and asks me "Is it over?". My first scary game was Dark Fall lights out, but i thing Darkness Within is much worse. Way to scarring...
You are right about the sound...

Volkana, if you really want to play it, can you play it with the lights on and the tv or the radio so you don't get too immersed in the game?

You play Barrow Hill?
Darkness is very scary and is a great game. You played Dark Fall: The Journal?

Volkana Dark Fall:The Journal is a great game, much better that Dark Fall:Lighs Outs. And Barrow Hill also is a good game.
You must play both games
