    I was a huge fan of the first two Max Payne games back in the day, and that made me a huge fan of their creator, Remedy.

    Remedy announced they were making Alan Wake back in 2005, and I picked the game up on the Xbox 360 the night it was released.

      Welcome to the forums, SoundwavE!

      I'm not sure exactly where I heard the name, but I was kind of aware of Alan Wake shortly after its release. At the time I didn't have an XBOX 360, so I didn't know too much about it, but I remember being interested in checking it out. I searched for Let's Play of the title and found a playthrough by 666theheartless666 who had been a fan of the developers (and Poets of the Fall too) since Max Payne. I really enjoyed watching the playthrough and the YouTuber's genuine enthusiasm for the title stood out a lot. There were some other titles I was interested in, but Alan Wake was the game which led me to actually wanting to get the console. I'm glad it did work out that way, a lot of good things have happened in my life because of that game. I still go back to the Let's Play every now and then, even though I've played the game myself a bunch of times by now.

        I had only recently purchased an Xbox 360 in 2009. I bought it solely due to seeing the Batman: Arkham Asylum game being played in a HMV store. That was the only game I had for months. I wanted more games, but I wasn't in to shooters and didn't have a Gold Membership. I purchased an Xbox magazine that had a 6 page article on Alan Wake, and I was hooked. Still to this day, the main reason certain games remain on my favourite list is their story. As with my favourite books, movies and TV shows. I pre-ordered the limited edition. After collecting it on the day of release, I played the first two episodes in one glorious night. And as writer Frank Miller said about his first experience opening up a Batman comic, I too fell straight in to this beautiful world, never fully coming back.

            It came free with the Xbox my wife purchased. I think it was the download. I'd hadn't played a game system since Nintendo 64 and Atari before that.
            Decided to try it out and have been hooked ever since. I play it through a couple times a year.
            I don't really play any other games. So yeah, they should make a sequel

              I found out about it sometime 2009, I think either during the TGS or E3. I forgot about it for a few years, until the Steam winter sales of 2013 or so, where I bought it at a discounted price and played the shit out of it afterwards.
              The "Alan Wake development history" fanatic strikes again!

                  E3 2005 announcement trailer. Still the best trailer of Alan Wake

                  That early glowing logo of Alan Wake felt so natural...
