Amnesia: the dark descent

I tried playing again today.. I'm not very far yet, and I'm not getting very far either. I have yet to see my first monster (excluding the very first sighting ofcourse *shivers*), but the random earthquakes and FOOTSTEPS EVERYWHERE are enough to keep me shriveling in fear.

I've never been a big fan of horror games, the first zombie in Resident Evil as an example, resulted in the death of my PSX controller.. I adapted a bit when Doom III came out, where you could just run up to zombies and shotgun them in the face, which made it seem like a walk in the park all of a sudden. Here comes Amnesia. Just you, a torch (which you must use sparingly, or you will run out of oil) and tinderboxes to light candles and such. To make it perfect, there's also an insanity meter.. which means you'll slowly grow more crazy over time the longer you stay in the dark (or look at monsters *shudders at the thought only*), which means you *have* to use that torch no matter what. I recommend you to watch this youtube clip of someone playing through Amnesia, it's really how I'm playing it, and I've not even seen a monster t_t (yes I am a pussy).
