I'm looking to try out alan wake but am pretty confused with all the retail/arcade editions. I tried googling it but can't seem to find proper keywords. :(
Where to start Alan Wake?
I don't want to attempt to play moderator here but you probably should have posted this on the Alan Wake or the American Nightmare forum.
I own both the games on steam but have not got around to playing them yet but it seems to best way to go is just to play them in the order they were released.
EDIT: oops did not see this thread was 2 months old.
In the chronological order from both release and plot development:
- Alan Wake
- Alan Wake: The Signal (DLC for Alan Wake)
- Alan Wake: The Writer (DLC for Alan Wake)
- Alan Wake: American Nightmare
Although if you don't want to spend money in DLC, you can just skip the two DLCs as there isn't any significant plot development there, mostly background stuff, and they are mostly about gameplay.
