So Alan Wake has always been one of those games I wanted, but never got round to buying. After finally getting it for as a present, I've just finished Chapter One and am feeling pumped.

When "In Dreams" kicks in, it just seems perfect and made me tingle! Also, when the "Previously on Alan Wake" came up, it made me smile.

I hope you guys dont mind me writing a kind of pointless thread but it truely was one of the moments in gaming that felt perfect.

Hope the rest of the game is as good as I've read some people saying it gets boring?

Glad your loving the game. It only get's better as you progress on. I'm not going to spoil anything, but yes it does get twisted later on, be prepared

To me, the game wasn't boring at any point, but to some it has. It all depends on the persons love/hate towards the game.

Yay glad to find another fan of the game! If you thought about the first part in that manner then I'm sure you will love the rest! As stated above it does get pretty crazy but it's still epicly fun! Enjoy!

This. I never found it boring. Focus on the story and you won't notice it .

The game was great, has a great storyline and has some real tense bits to the game.

Seems like an Alone in the Dark clone. Alone in the Dark was not fun.

I hope to be wrong, of course as I like playing good games.

Glad you're enjoying it! This is one of my favorite games. I've beaten it around 4-5 times, and never got bored of it. This is one of the games I enjoyed getting 100% achievements the most (along with Borderlands).

Just finished it on my first play through (Normal), and all I can say is WOW....I have not experienced a game like this before. Sure it was a bit repetitive, but man, was it ever original. I will definitely be going back to get some of the missed achievements.

Amazing game indeed. The atmosphere, the lighting effects, the sound design the chills running down your spine where great. It really filled the void that the last Resi Evil failed to deliver on survival horror and creepiness, RE5 seemed more of an action game without improving on the controls that where better suited to a survival horror.

The day I got this, I played through the 3rd chapter. The next week was one of those "work till i drop" weeks so playing alan wake was not on the to do list those days or nights. When I finally went back to play, I realized that I missed some thermoses... So as a perfectionist and completionist thanks to the invention of achievements, I ended up restarting and going for everything i possibly could on one playthrough. While since then I have not gotten past the 3rd chapter this time, I have been debating every second whether I should jump back into the hours of gameplay that holds me with that game, or play others that I can jump out of with ease every 20 minutes or so at each nice rounded save... Alan Wake is just so good, I can't bring myself to play it even though I am dying to. I get so intimidated with the daunting tasks of collecting everything... i am weak...

just play through it. Don't let the hunting for collectibles slow you down. Experience the game for the story.

I beat this game summer of 10, but just this week got around to beating the 2 DLCs b/c of the new game coming out in another week. Loved every minute of it!!!

I really enjoyed it! I've just done it on Nightmare and that was intense. Lots of out of breath running!

Also just did the Signal DLC without dying. Sheesh Im sweaty.

I get why people say it's boring but I think the story is so good. Also, the feel of being in a small town and the sigh of the woods in daytime is just so well done!

LOVE IT!
3 more achievements then Im done. Not looking forward to doing the Writer (think thats the second DLC?) without dying

There are points that might make you jump but not scared. Although, if you tend to make yourself "into the game" to where you feel what the main character feels, then prepare to be paranoid as hell.....

Same here. I though it wasn't any good or anything so I didn't play it for a long time. Turned out to be a great game.

I finally got this game a couple weeks ago and I LOVED it. It's most definitely on my list of games to get 100% on :P.

It can get a little repetitive at times, but I only realize that now that someone else mentioned it. You really don't think about it while you're playing the game... the story has you waaaay too sucked in to care.

A lot of games tend to lack in the storyline department, but Alan Wake is NOT one of them. I recommend it to everyone!

I did the same thing.. I was actually going to trade it in when I got my xbox but they couldn't take it cause it was a download. Then a few weeks ago needed to play a new game and was like lets try alan wake.... glad that I did....

Ive only played Alan Wake for about an hour so far but i'm loving it already. It seems to have a great storyline and it gave me the creeps right near the start. I'm probablys going to be playing this non-stop now till i get the 1500G

i thought this game was very refreshing, it breathed new life into a genre that had been strugling for near a decade. alan wake is easily one of my favorite games, everything about it was top notch, graphics, gameplay, controls, story, characters.
