Well just finished alan wake, overall it was pretty good not perfect, was gonna try and get the last 11-12 cheevos for it, but not sure i can be arsed, got pretty bored towards the end and just wanted it to finish, not sure i can get through another 10 hours on nightmare, plus i got LP2 and metro i wanna try and finish before my limited gaming time is eaten by red dead.

The game is a fantasic rental but would not like to pay full price for it, love the combat/torch mechanics and the story is top-notch, also the episodic chapters was fantasic, love the "Previously on Alan Wake" start on each chapter, helps to tell the story and fill some gaps you might miss, but its just too repetive for a single-player game, unlike Uncharted 2 which i could quite happily play again and again and again.

Theres also only about 3-4 different taken which doesnt help with the repetiveness of it, theres only so many taken you can shine torch at/shoot/flashbang before it starts getting tedious.

Thanks Maib, you've made up my mind. I was tempted to buy it, but instead i'm gonna get Red Dead. Although I will rent this eventually as i like my survival 'horror' games.

This game has improved a bit and I've got into it now. Still haven't got a clue what's going on, almost as confusing as watching Lost.

Lost the game sucks, the TV show, whether you like the ending or not, is arguably one of the greatest shows ever created.

It is and i'm not being sarcastic or anything either, the first two or three seasons are as good as anything i've seen on TV in a long time, better than 24, early ER, X-Files, Heroes, pretty much all the big name shows, sure some of it got a bit confusing and polarised opinion like nothing else but even some of the bad episodes and story arcs are far better than most things currently on TV.

That is your opinion.
Clearly the best thing on TV is Doctor Who ;) Just kidding I don't really watch TV I only watch QI and Top Gear. Basically I watch Dave.
Sometimes BBC 3

It's an opinion shared by the MILLIONS ............... AND MILLIONS of people that watch it though so it's not just mine  :)

Doctor Who sucks far more than any human can possibly fathom, that's also an opinion shared by many.
