Default The Thing looks pretty sweet..

I just checked it out over at gamespot and the SS's look nice. We need more scarier games put out. Undying was the last real scary one besides AvP2 as the marine. Playing Undying with the lights out damn near gave me a heart attack on a few occasions.

Edit: here's the actual site

You can still buy it. I see it in stores here for like 19 bucks or less. This game is totally worth owning, regardless of how dated it looks.

Made by the same game designer (Warren Spector) that brought you Deus Ex (and soon Deus Ex 2!!), Thief, and Thief 2.

Get it.

System Shock 2 was so freaky I couldn't play it. All those weird freaks groaning and coming from behind while you try to deal with the automated machine guns... AvP2 aged me 2 years easy. Undying nearly killed me. Still weren't as bad as SS2.

The Thing would be pretty freaky if it had friendly guys aka half-life that followed you around until all of a sudden... groan...stretch..creak..mmmUUHHHHH!!!!!..

Yeah love those kinda game which totally scare you. Avp and AVP2 scared me big time. Especially when u are in a room with that flashig strobe light and u see an alien... arghhh

Real sweet playing it with the sub woofer directly behind the back of your chair.

There is another game called CALL OF CHTHULU which is another claustrophobic kinda games. You have real time phobia's hallucinations etc depending on ur character. (it FPS)

The THING looks ok, hope it has a good story line and game play...
