Clive Barker's Undying

(opens in new tab)

Clive Barker's Undying carries the distinction as one of the first games to carve an expression of terrified horror in my face from start to end. I swore I'd never revisit it, but it's on GOG (opens in new tab) now for $6, an absolute steal for one of the best and truly frightful first-person survival horror games out there.

Sure, it's not as weird as previous new(old?)comer Omikron (opens in new tab) , but Undying still keeps its magic of piling on creepy mysticism, nightmarish enemies, and lots of frantic shooting. All because the Covenant siblings couldn't resist blurting out a profane ritual. Silly Covenants.

As with the rest of GOG's library, Undying's olden 2001 graphics are kept pristine while taking a bump in compatibility for Windows XP, 7, and 8. For more nostalgic incoherent screaming, here's the intro trailer.
