Alan Wake Remastered Review

There are some games that breathe atmosphere, although arguably not nearly enough. It’s really more of a film or book thing, and yet occasionally a title comes along and surprises you. Alan Wake was one of those titles in 2010 - and its remaster remains impressed 11 years later.

More Thoughts From Me #281: Gotta Catch ‘Em All?
