Alan Wake was easily my favorite first-party title this generation.

Alan Wake was 3rd party....

Remedy developed the title under the Microsoft banner.

It is a Microsoft game studios title, as far as the 360 version went.

The only thing they didn't have a part in was the much later released PC release - a version that was originally being developed under Microsoft as well - though was dropped.

The developer later finished and self-released the pc version.

It most definitely is a first-party Microsoft release, however. Remedy holds the rights to the Alan Wake license, but I believe Microsoft has a contract with Remedy to keep future Alan Wake release exclusive to the 360. Possible releases for the pc as well, obviously.

I've never heard a game called 1st party based on it's publisher. Remedy is not a Microsoft 1st or 2nd party studio so the game is 3rd party. MGS published Ninja Gaiden and Bioshock but that doesn't make them 1st party games, even if they owned the IPs, which they don't for those said games and Alan Wake. When talking about 1st, 2nd, or 3rd party it's always about the developers.
