Just now getting to the episode now that most of the move is done, still unpacking. Have to agree with Alan Wake being good especially with a controller playing on the PC (also the tv shows you find are like a weird Twilight Zone feel to it in 5 minute clips).
Also want to throw out the Xbox 360 Downloaded game sequel to Alan Wake that's now on PC too (both are fun but the combat will get a bit tedious after a while).
Steam link below & first thing on the page before the screenshots is usually some kind of trailer

Alan Wake American Nightmare
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Still would highly recommend Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth as it is fun plus not too expensive on steam
Dead Space2 I feel is better than #1 & #3 as the space station gives it a more creepy feel than the rest plus the mechanics are a bit better than the first, not as scary as you play but it does a great job with combat & zero-gravity.
Oh and as for Phantasmagoria, it & 7th Guest aren't on steam yet but they are on a similar site called Good Old Games
Agreed about not a ton of gaming cons in Texas at least where I'm at in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Found a few on Meetup but not sure how well they work out as just finding out on them in the last few months. (few I know about coming soon are listed below)
Do want to recommend Gen-X in the Euless area & Madness Comics in Plano/Richardson for people in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area looking for comic stores with a decent Cthulhu gaming materials.
Also anyone on the MUP boards looking for people in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, send me a message here or on YSDC & we can see about getting some kind of game going even if it's just online.
