Thomas Was Alone is still in my to-play queue, but yeah, Hotline Miami was great. I can't imagine how that game plays with a controller, though... I'm sure it works fine, just seems odd when I picture it.
Lone Survivor... man... I tried it on PC, tried again on PS3, but I just can't get into it. I love, love, love Silent Hill, but this did nothing for me. (doesn't help that I can't not see that facemask as a giant cartoonish grin)
Not sure if this really counts, since I've played Fatal Frame 2, but I picked up Fatal Frame 1 and 3 on PSN last night. Started playing 3 for a couple hours (because fuck continuity), and man... I am seriously impressed. FF2 was creepy as hell, but never quite "scary". FF3, right out of the gate, is all about "Ohshitwhatisthatbackawayslowlyohshit" moments, and the kind of Silent Hill 4-esque setup really appeals to me.
I was expecting a fairly run-of-the-mill but moderately creepier than average survival horror game, not this. Very happy indeed, especially considering how disappointed I was in DreadOut.
Alternative, industrial, goth rock, rap, trip-hop, and steampunk (yeah, it's not just goggles and cogs anymore, we've invaded music as well) are my favorites, and the 80s and 90s are my decades of choice (although I'm rather fond of the 30s and 40s too).
Edit: I by no means limit myself to the above. For instance, I was on a HUGE Regina Spektor kick recently.
