Play Penumbra Overture and Black Plague

So far I'm loving these games, I'm a big survival horror fan and these games definantly have alot of horror. There isn't a whole lot of story, or if there is I haven't uncovered it, but it's really immersive. I really like the main character Phil, but he's one of those cliched "my tongue is missing!" characters we've seen in several games, this doesn't hurt the series though. Alot of people grip about the pick axe in the first game, but I thought it made sense. Phil isn't a super soldier, so it's only natural swinging the pick axe as a weapon is foreign to him.  
 
I played Amnesia first, so I was a little surprised that the "sneaking" style wasn't a HUGE impliment in the first game, but when Black Plague rolled around it set in alright. These are great games, and I really hope to see more from Frictional Games like this.
