Frictional's Penumbra titles were moderately frightening first-person adventure games, but with Amnesia they struck gold, creating a world where light is your only weapon against the creatures that lurk in the shadows, and the only thing keeping your character from (quite literally) degenerating into a gibbering wreck.

Survival in this early 19th-century hellhole is a careful matter of solving nifty physics puzzles, taking heed of scattered diaries, lighting beacon-like torches, and of course hiding like a massive coward whenever a hideous inside-out monster comes a-hunting.
