    Cool...I've never played this but have heard about it for years. Ten bucks is worth taking a shot at this one.

    I still have the original and its box. Creepy freaking thing. I have heard those sounds in my nightmares ever since.

    It was a good game & I really enjoyed it but it had it's time in the sun and times have moved on. If you really want to play it (ancient graphics notwithstanding) I don't suppose 10 bucks is too much.
     
  5. Still got the game and box, install it every couple years.
    Still the scarriest game in history, took me 2 years to beat it the first time. I crawled literally the entire game because I didn't want to make any footsteps or be seen through the glass......
    Turn it on
    Turn off the lights
    Good luck (good bye)
     
  6. First time I heard the robot nurses I almost wet myself

    I remember trying to play System Shock 2 co-op back in the day. It actually made it scarier as the connection was so bad my friends kept disappearing and then reappearing somewhere else.

    Also times when my friends could see me but I couldn't see them and they couldn't affect the world in any way, like Randell and Hopkirk deceased relocated to a terrifying space ship.

    Amazing game none the less.
