This has by far been the most agonising experience I have ever had with a computer game. I've never had a stronger urge to not play a game in my life, yet this experiment refused to let me bow to my cowardice. So finally, after lots and lots of procrastination, I sat down last night (NIGHT!!) and decided that I wasn't leaving my chair until this sucker was done.
I'd like to open with a declaration that I did not cheat. In fact, I should phrase that slightly differently. I did not "cheat". I did however deploy several safeguards so my spine didn't literally drop right out of my back whilst playing. Consider these 5 top tips if you're a complete wuss, but like me, can really appreciate the fantastic game that lies underneath.
Tip 1: Give up. You're a coward, drop it and move on.
Tip 2: Still here? Congratulations! You made it as far as I did. Amnesia is excellent at completely sucking you into its world through light and music. The first of which can be conquered by playing in Windowed mode, and setting yourself a smashing colourful picture for your wallpaper! With your peripherals suitably dazzled, the little window into hell seems a little less horrifying.
