    started a topic I'm confused.

    I'm confused.

    At the end of the first game, Alan Wake writes himself out of the story in order to save everyone in the world, specifically Alice. Given the trailer and details on American Nightmare, he's still okay, but he needs to fight his evil clone, Mr.Scratch. How is Alan still okay?

Is the darkness like some sort of parallel dimension with a parallel, interconnected version of Mr. Scratch, where if darkness dimension Mr. Scratch dies, real-life Mr. Scratch dies? BTW I know my assumptions are probably wrong.
    Mr Scratch is able to switch between the real world and the dark place by will. The one in AWAN is the same one that we see in the end of AW.

    AWAN is a spin off.

    Id suggest downloading the 2 pieces of DLC for the first game.

    Have you played or heard of the DLC for Alan Wake, Signal and The Writer?
    They show you more of a reason to why Alan is so used to the Dark Place now.

    He learns the lesson to cope with the craziness of the Dark Place or go insane instead.

    That's why he survives through the Dark Place for over 2 years.

    In my opinion, the DLC was awesome!
    I recommend getting them if you haven't already.
