Starting my playthrough of this tonight. Nobody in the house this week so super excited and super terrified as it will be late night in a country house by myself >_> (twitch.tv/r0ot2u)

Should be good, Amnesia was scary as hell.

I don't get how anyone can be scared of a game that features no combat. You can only run away or lose, hardly compelling options to create dramatic tension. I just feel that these games are so forced somehow.

Honestly play it, as someone who does many an FPS game the lack of an actual weapon is scary enough to make you cautious and the developers added to this with perfect music placement, camera work and level design.

The problem is that I don't get cautious, I just stop caring because it feels so forced. I've tried Penumbra and Amnesia and they just felt so boring when I realized the only reason I'm not armed is because I'm supposed to feel powerless without a weapon. And the only thing I feel is boredom, oh no, someones after me... I think I'll uh.. run, yeah, that's it. Run and hide because I'm forced to. That makes every encounter in such a game a point of annoyance for me, because I keep getting reminded that I'm shoe-horned into this role of a victim.

Then take other scary games where you have an arsenal, like Half-life 1 and the incineration chamber, or say any of the Resident Evil games or better yet, the Stalker games. They all give you lots of firepower, but they also make you realize that despite all that power, SOMETHING is going to get you when you're not looking. The fact that you can fight back and still be powerless if they get the drop on you is what makes a game scary for me. Being made a victim and told to run just pisses me off instead.

Not sure if my body is ready for this today, but I've got my diapers just in case.

Well, yawn. I did not see a hint of any interesting game mechanic.
