Hi guys

I am in search for a game about which I know very little.
First of all I am not a gaming expert but I am hoping you might be able to help to help me find it.

I have never played or seen it, only been told about it: it is a first person horror game in which you start only with a flashlight in the dark (might pick up things as the game progresses?). I think this person played it on Xbox.
I have been searching and I thought it might be Fatal Frame, although I am not sure (I thought the main character was a man and I don't remember being told about the ghost-camera).
It could very well be Fatal Frame, but do you guys know of any other game that might match the description?

Also, being Fatal Frame or some other game, can you give me you opinion about wether it is a good game?

Thanks!

Forgot to say, but the game would be some years old (i think maybe +10 years old)
Welcome to the horror board @slack3r And sorry, I can't help you with that. Maybe the other users can help you.

A game on Xbox where you start with a flashlight sounds very familiar to Doom 3. Probably wrong however.

You haven't even seen the game? we can list every first person horror game in existence for the xbox and it might be it, but you'll never be able to confirm.

A first person horror game in which you start only with a flashlight in the dark where you might pick up things as the game progresses (implying there's no combat?) that's + 10 years old...

The only game I've played that matches the description is Echo Night: Beyond but it's on PS2

If you hadn't said first person it could've been Allan wake.

That was my first thought, honestly. Doom 3 was pretty well known for being dark and utilizing a flashlight constantly, as well as being first person and on Xbox. It's been several years since I played it, but it was definitely less actiony than previous Dooms and a little more survival horror-like.

There was an updated version released for Windows, PS3, and 360 a few years ago that should be pretty easy to hunt down.

Probably not Fatal Frame as that is mostly played in third person mode. The camera does switch to first person, however, and I think at least FF2 on Xbox has a fulltime first person mode, but it isn't the default setting.
