Amnesia: The Dark Descent is heavily discounted for a limited time on Steam!

Recommended Posts

ah already got it years ago on a steam sale. Probably most people have but that's pretty cool. Thanks for letting us know mate.

Saw this when I logged on earlier and thought it was like a free weekend, but apparently it is just a give away. I knew a guy really into this game so I better give it a try. I don't mind being spooked.

I'm happy for the people that don't have it, but its been in multiple cheap bundles. I played it. Felt like Shadowgate without being a point and click adventure. I don't see the whole awesome game that the rest of the Steam community sees. I just found it really dull, but that's just me.

Steam has a few free games here and there for whatever reason other than its constant free weekends of games like Payday 2, Saints Row 4 and X-Com.

Sweet. I found it strange that my old laptop could run Doom 3 better than Amnesia, though, heh. I just acquired an OKAY desktop rig so I might be able to play some pre-modern games at least. I'm hoping for zero lag in Civilization 5: BNW, fingers crossed.

I told my friends of this as I already own this and pre-bought SOMA as well.

Thanks! Probably won't work properly if at all on my laptop, given that Doom 3 glitches out, but we'll see I guess.
and even if it does, I'll probably end up scaring myself and quitting after 10 minutes like I usually do with stuff like this, but hey, it's free :P

Got it and played a little but it didn't hold my interest for long. I guess I'm just too jaded from games right now.

I could never get into these games either. I respect the respect people have for them, but they're just not my thing.

I played this about a year ago and got bored of it pretty fast. I thought Doom 3 worked much better as both a first person horror game AND doubled as a first person action game as well. Although since it's free I may as well try it again. This time in complete darkness all alone with headphones. Although I'm still not optimistic.

Agreed, I mean. The game looks good, but... It seems a bit boring, eh. I still think Outlast Is a good horror game, sort of beats Amnesia.

Yeah, I never gived It a try, so I'll HAVE to give It a chance. Though, I did watch YouTube videos (without commentary) and I didn't get scared. I think the ONE game that'll scare me the most would be Outlast. There's literally moments when a monster will run after you, and oh lord. It's terrifying and It's like you're really running from a fucked up monster and Insane murderer. It's awesome.

Did that. There are some well-crafted creepy moments, but the game falls short on so many other levels. I'm scrambling for more constructive ways of saying "I think it's boring", but that's ultimately what I want to say here.

Though I'm looking forward to SOMA. Maybe the whole concept of killer robots is more appealing to my personal tastes, thereby making it something I can learn to love, I don't know.
