Resolution's Jennifer Allen writes: As a child I absolutely hated the dark. There was a very clear reason behind this: the unknown. I had a very active imagination so, to me, the great unknown was terrifying. Anything could have been out there. Sure it was just my bedroom but what was stopping a huge lumbering monster being out there in the dark? Waiting for me to let my guard down before it struck. Exactly. The dark was scarier than anything I could possibly see in the light, purely down to the potential it offered. Amnesia: The Dark Descent captures this mentality perfectly and ably scares you silly.
