Where you actually had to think about how to kill the enemies, but not taking away from the enjoyment of killing lots of enemies. Accompanied by dark environments and a large variety of enemies so you didn't ever really know what you were going to run into. R.E. kinda did this for me, but it did not actually pull off a fear-like state for me. I was annoyed by not having enough ammo, and constantly having to run. I don't like to run, I like to kill creatively. (does that make sense?)

Utterly unmatched experience in any first-person shooter to date.
