Played the alien Isolation demo at Rezzed this year and didnt even make it to viewing the alien before i took off the headset and noped out of there.
Probably because i was exposed to the first two films waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too young and now have a pretty gnarly fear of the xenomoprhs (despite knowing they aint real)
But they nailed that amnesia tension then amped it right the hell up with the setting.
Outside of games that aint out yet? Silent hill 1 and 2 were terrifying and the very first 'zombie cgi clip' from resident evil one when you leave the dining hall followed by dog hall shortly after meant i rarely made it past the first 30 mins in that game
Im still skeptical after reading the linked leaks form earlier last year about a sh aliens game where later environments featured clones soldiers and weapons - all of which could be incorporated well into an amnesia type game, but easy after a long time of potentially repetitive hide and seek gameplay to devolve into corridor blast.
I've always wanted a focus one one alien type horror game - as much as i love aliens, the first film was very much one of the scariest thing younger me was exposed to, and made me prertty shit pants scared of anything xenomorph related for the rest of my young adult life (i couldnt play alien trilogy on the ps1 for long, and used to sleep with the blanket over my head because i was afraid of face huggers getting me in my sleep)
They pull this off and it will be the greatest horror game i hate to play. Here's hoping!
