Amnesia vs. Penumbra by clacier Amnesia vs. Penumbra by clacier
This is what I've been bumping into lately: Amnesia vs. Penumbra converstations.

"Amnesia is better!"
"No, Penumbra is better!"
"Your mama!"

Pff. I say they both rock. Penumbra was more eerie and there were more heart attacks, but Amnesia was more distressing and had an uncertain feeling all the time. Can't really say which one is scarier, since they're both scary in their own ways and both also scare me.

And "vs." sounds so... dramatic. Like there'd be some kind of epic battle going on. x'D

Games: Amnesia the Dark Descent, Penumbra Overture & Black Plague

Edit:

Often asked: "Who's the guy in white?"
... Guy?! She's Amabel. xDDD Seriously...

Often commented: "Omg Mr. Penis something blahblah."
... It's Clarence. T.T And the organ isn't a penis. Stop coming up with funny names to creepy characters k? K. Nothing is holy anymore... ;_;

I got to say amnesia is scarier and better. Not only does it have horrifyingly disfigured monsters, the torture rooms were horrifying as well. I believe a scary game that takes place In the past is fucking terrifying. Those tortured victims were just..... I don't even know. The bells ringing while in the morgue or the transept and choir just made it worse. I have nightmares about the monsters and the torture rooms.

Alexander's face XD like:
"Daniel, if you lose this, there will be a torture session with your name taking place very soon."

And I am cheering for Amnesia. I mean, I will admit I haven't seen too much of Penumbra at all. But i have watched many playthroughs of Amnesia, and I just love the atmosphere. Instead of making it scary via pointless jumpscares, it builds up paranoia and tension and just FEAR of what could possibly be out there until when you see it you explode and end up worse off than Daniel by the end O.o

Plus I usually like the first one I see better, just 'cause it's the first one and I tend to be judgmental about the second :D

Yeah that's exactly why I also like Amnesia so much. There's enough jumpscares and guns in other games combined. Horror like Amnesia is just pure epicness. :3

Why does Amabel have the: "Please lose" face?


I think they made a bet if Philip wins, Amabel has to....you know what, fuck it.

Amnesia is definitely scarier, but I'd pick Penumbra for the better game. It was more original, had a better story and gameplay. Amnesia is basically Penumbra set in the XIXth century and with some occult involved.

I'm not sure, which one has been created first though? o :
And have You played both?
Anyway, I've been absolutely obsessed with Amnesia lately xD It's also because I have weakness in general to things related to XIXth century~
I also wanted to play both games, but my stupid computer refuses to cooperate ;u;'' so probably I will never get to know by myself, which one is scarier and which better x'D Only let's plays left for me...Yet still, I love both games' ideas, stories and details. But I must confess, that I didn't fully understood the Penumbra story, I got a bit lost, while watching the let's play. I should go and read something more about that game though~

Penumbra was created first. It has two parts: Overture, which came in 2006, and Black Plague which is from 2008. Amnesia was made in late 2010 and has considerably better graphics. An in-direct sequel titled "Machine for Pigs" is planned to be released later in this year :)

I really love the fact that both protagonists looks so scared. It's as if they try to say 'no' to this battle they get murdered. XD

Amnesia only gives me so many heart attacks cos my laptop's old and makes the game lag every time something scary comes up. :XD: Penumbra just...I can't do it. Overture, fine. Black Plague, "*looks around the corner of the door, sees the thing heading towards him with the flashlight- hides in the corner and closes the game* NOPE."

Yep. The only shooter game I like is L4D2 and that's because I never play it alone but with friends so it doesn't matter much if I fail. Everyone else saves the situation. ^^'

Penumbra for me was more anoying at howmany times it glithed out, like a monster would be chasing me, and then everything just froze... sudenly i'm dead.
But in Amnesia, I was more 'scared' I guess you could say? I just never really enoyed the idea of being trapped in house, with humans that have been just fucked up.
