Developed by Looking Glass Studios and released in 1999, this cyberpunk first-person shooter with RPG elements established new standards for storytelling and gameplay.
Engineer Isaac Clarke battles a polymorphic virus-like alien infestation which turns human corpses into grotesque undead alien monsters called "Necromorphs", while trying to survive on board an infested interstellar mining ship named the USG Ishimura.
A first-person survival horror game with advanced physics-based puzzles from Frictional Games, the creators of the Penumbra series. Its dynamic of light and darkness and focus on avoidance of enemies rather than combat have been highly influential in recent horror games.
Absolutely horrifying game and a nod to Lovecraftian horror. Wish more similar games came out.
