Default FEAR 2

Now this is a game I can sink my teeth into, GREAT graphics, good follow up story line, scary as hell and beautiful physics engine. Crysis eat your heart out. I just cant seem to stop playing, although with all the lights out this game can get pretty intense..

And they did a great job with the immersion factor of the graphics, very realistic lighting and great partical effects. I wish they could make more games like this these days.
