Other games like Amnesia?

Just wondering, are there any other games like Amnesia (besides Penumbra), which combines point and click and first person views in a horror setting? I specifically remember of a 1990s DOS game that has a similar gameplay mechanic, except you can access guns.

Well, there's a Myst like game called Scratches.

The "Plot" and "Last Visit" section contains some spoilers. But nothing too bad I guess.

The first Condemned game is an excellent horror game. I'd highly recommend getting your hands on it (even if the ending is a bit silly)

Besides Penumbra, Cryostasis is the closest game. It does not have puzzles, but the gameplay/atmosphere/story elements are very similar.

can't think of ant similar control-style games. all other games have sticks or guns to let you kick- monsters.

along in the dark
silent hill
condemned 1 (2 is on xbox360)
bioshock(1&2 both cool)

all i can think of.

I'd have to agree somehow. Cryostasis definitely is worth it if you have a good PC to run it (the game is.. well.. let's say in bad shape).

It's already cheap in price, and usually gets even cheaper on Holiday sales.

Cryostasis is really amazing atmosphere-wise, very recommended.

Cryostasis is dirt cheap in Poland. It was even in a magazine not long ago, together with King's Bounty.

I'm with the second post here. Try Scratches. I just love that game. I don't know why it's so good but it is. Great horror game.
