Penumbra: Overture (series of games)
I remember that when it first came out, scared the hell out or me. Best money i spent on a survival horror adventure what the hell is this game in years! Literally forced me into a ball in my chair hugging my cat so hard that she squealed and i sprinted into the kitchen and stood there staring at my backdoor terrified of what was behind the shadows.
The Path Is purely disturbing and highly creepy total mind rape but its not as good as . . .
I urge everyone with an open mind and a willingness to jump out from there comfort zone to try Dear Esther Its a free HL2 Mod that has no one hero or one anything its a pure story/experience that pulls at your mind like taffy and warps your reality into its play thing. But you have to have the right kind of mindset, you must allow yourself to be taken into the world and just exist for an hour or so. Enjoy the experience Dear Esther
From the same guys The Chinese Room Is a mod called Korsakovia also a HL2 mod
Korsakovia is a new experimental mod by the makers of Dear Esther. It's a survival horror about delusion, paranoia and the end of the world.
Resolution Magazine said they've "Never played a game that fucked with me so much" and that "It’s rare for a game to instil such panic. It’s up there with ‘Shock 2 and Silent Hill in that respect".

This mod made me scream run to the light switch and just sit there in the brightest room of my house breathing alone bathed in light praying for it all to be ok.....
Anymore you can think of?

Braid's puzzle, nuff said.
If anyone is interested in playing (or replaying) Dear Esther, one of the mappers who worked on Mirror's Edge is redoing the level design of the place (with the original creators' blessings). Here's the blog where he lists what he's done so far.

I never finished Dear Esther, but what I did play I certainly found disturbing.

Starkrun: Linky goodness.

I "own" the Penumbra series on Steam, but have yet to play them. Have heard very good things about the series so I'm looking forward to it.
The Path, well, I played the Prologue/demo for a little bit, but just couldn't get into it... A shame, as I was really keen on buying it.
Downloading Dear Esther and Korsakovia. Should be interesting. Thank you!
Pathologic, no doubt recently released The Void by the same makers.
Played Penumbra for a bit at lunch today, and even though it was daytime, it still managed to make us almost shit in our pants.
Try it with Plantronics Gamecom headphones with bass boost on at 2am while there was a windstorm outside. That was my first run and it was stupid as hell of me. Did the same thing with Aliens v Pred; but with surround sound, again very stupid but..... oh so much fun!
Heh, Doom 3 after a... "smoke". Not a good experience.
Don't do drugs, kids.
System Shock 2 + Headphones + Dark room + Late at night = mind asplodes.
Parts of Sanitarium are rather disturbing. That's one of the best adventure games ever, by the way.
Also, I never finished Phantasmagoria because I found it too disturbing.

What's wrong with Phantasmagoria?

Scratches had a couple of very unsettling moments. Very clever use of sound.
Actually now that i think about it, i usually find that a couple of well placed sound effects tend to be more effective in the nerve wrecking department than all the imagery put togheter...

JudasIscariot: System Shock 2 + Headphones + Dark room + Late at night = mind asplodes.

Even on the very first level, it worked it's way into my head. I recall turning a corner one late night, and coming across a monkey (as you do) and nearly jumping out of my skin.
I'd also go for Alone in the Dark.
The voiceovers for the books creeped me out, I was only young, and it was terrifying. These days the graphics are terrifying in a completely different sense though.
