Top 10 scariest video games

Filed under
Gaming

We present the top 10 best horror video games ever made.

10. Doom 3

A favourite among many FPS horror fans, we have to confess to some rather cool feelings towards John Carmack's sci-fi shooter. While it featured the usual fantastic staples which built id Software's deserved reputation as a revered FPS developer – visceral combat, hideous monsters and satisfying levels of violence – it also contained one game aspect that annoyed us, even though it proved to be a decent horror device. Trapped in the dimly lit corridors of a space station, players were only allowed to use their gun or torch – never both at the same time. This sustained the tension throughout the game, but there were times where the inability to see further down the corridor than the flickering lights in the ceiling would allow without lowering your weapon seemed a bit of a cheat. Of course, no one can deny the effectiveness of this gameplay mechanic, and whether you felt hoodwinked or not, Doom 3 provided as many scares as it did run and gun battles. For those who've never played a Carmack-produced game, that's a lot!

9. Siren/Forbidden Siren

Set in a remote mountain village in the aftermath of an occult ritual gone horribly wrong, Siren thrust players into an environment populated by shuffling undead hungry for their blood.

Introducing Gthree

I’ve recently been working on OpenGL support in Gtk+, and last week it landed in master. However, the demos we have are pretty lame and are not very good to show off or even test the OpenGL support. I’ve looked around for some open source demos that used modern GL that we could use, but I didn’t find anything that we could easily use. What I did find though, was a lot of WebGL demos that used three.js. This looked like a very nice open source library for highlevel 3d rendering. At first I had some plans to bind OpenGL to gjs so that we could run three.js, but this turned out to be a hard. Instead I started converting three.js into C + GObject, using the Gtk+ OpenGL support and the vector/matrix library graphene that Emmanuele has been working on recently. Read more

Swiss crowdfund pays for signed PDFs LibreOffice

In just three days, the Swiss open source community Wilhelm Tux reached its crowdfunding target of 10,000 CHF (about 8000 euro) to add support for digital signatures in PDF documents. The feature will be added to LibreOffice, a free and open source suite of office productivity tools.

Tumbleweed, Factory rolling releases to merge

“With the release of openSUSE 13.2 due in November, we realised this was a perfect opportunity to merge our two openSUSE rolling-releases together so users of Tumbleweed can benefit from the developments to our Factory development process over the last few years,” said Richard Brown, Chairman of openSUSE board. “The combined feedback and contributions from our combined Tumbleweed and Factory users should help keep openSUSE rolling forward even faster, while offering our users the latest and greatest applications on a stable rolling release.” Read more
