Hahahaha, my own terrible pun kills me. Hahah. Heh.
Okay, so I really like this game. Yes, I know it's not really that scary, yes I know it has other faults, but over all I really couldn't help but REALLY ENJOY myself as I played.
Let's face it, I have this weird crush on Alan Wake. Yes, I know he's bitchy -- I know he opens the game by throwing some sort of weird man tantrum, with flailing arms and irrational anger abound, but something about him just really grew on me. The game had me laughing more than it had me jumping or being scared but the subject matter was still dark, and as we all know ME very well, I love dark stories that I can laugh at.
Alan's character was funny. And they couldn't even help but poke fun at him. Remedy was aware of what they were doing. The times when Alan would go "who the hell designed this?!" to when his best friend criticizes him for being a smoldering man with anger issues when things didn't go his way in the funniest way imaginable made it all the better.
I mean it's TRUE, Alan. You have anger issues. And for all the weird layers you wear, and how you run out of breath sprinting for five seconds and start staggering, for how you collect coffee thermoses throughout the game with no TRUE purpose, for how you perpetually have some sort of incredulous face, and how somehow you really don't give a shit after a whole forest full of loggers have thrown axes at your face, I love you.
And this is a testament to that! Hope you guys enjoy. :>
