Top 10 scariest video games

Filed under
Gaming

We present the top 10 best horror video games ever made.

10. Doom 3

A favourite among many FPS horror fans, we have to confess to some rather cool feelings towards John Carmack's sci-fi shooter. While it featured the usual fantastic staples which built id Software's deserved reputation as a revered FPS developer – visceral combat, hideous monsters and satisfying levels of violence – it also contained one game aspect that annoyed us, even though it proved to be a decent horror device. Trapped in the dimly lit corridors of a space station, players were only allowed to use their gun or torch – never both at the same time. This sustained the tension throughout the game, but there were times where the inability to see further down the corridor than the flickering lights in the ceiling would allow without lowering your weapon seemed a bit of a cheat. Of course, no one can deny the effectiveness of this gameplay mechanic, and whether you felt hoodwinked or not, Doom 3 provided as many scares as it did run and gun battles. For those who've never played a Carmack-produced game, that's a lot!

9. Siren/Forbidden Siren

Set in a remote mountain village in the aftermath of an occult ritual gone horribly wrong, Siren thrust players into an environment populated by shuffling undead hungry for their blood.

3 open source alternatives to Office 365

It can be hard to get away from working and collaborating on the web. Doing that is incredibly convenient: as long as you have an internet connection, you can easily work and share from just about anywhere, on just about any device. The main problem with most web-based office suites—like Google Drive, Zoho Office, and Office365—is that they're closed source. Your data also exists at the whim of large corporations. I'm sure you've heard numerous stories of, say, Google locking or removing accounts without warning. If that happens to you, you lose what's yours. So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis. Yes, the plant actually asks to be watered. Read more
