To Roswell with love: the eight greatest alien invasion games

Guardian - As search engine fans may well have noticed, Monday's Google doodle is celebrating the 66th anniversary of the Roswell incident, when aliens crash-landed into the New Mexico desert, quickly disguising their craft as a surveillance balloon and themselves as dummies in order to fool the authorities. Or something. Anyway, whatever did happen out there in 1947, the event has had a huge impact on science fiction literature, movies and, of course, video games ever since. (Culture)

There was this one game for PS1 I can't remember the name of. It had these tentacle type things on the ground, and you played as a women who was infected by one of them to become half alien. There were live action cut scenes and you had to feed off the meat of other animals/enemies you killed.

It was awesome.

Exactly lol. It was so bad it was good.

I would consider Destroy All Humans among the top alien invasion games, it was unique that you get to play as the alien....and not generic soldier dude #1

Good list. Half Life, the Resistance series, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown were what came to mind when I saw the title. Halo 1 and 2 bored me and I didn't make it to Mass Effect 3, also because of boredom, but they are undoubtedly loved by many. There was a flawed but still very enjoyable game on PS1 called Broken Helix that always comes to mind when I think about alien games...

Nothing will capture the true feeling of an alien invasion more than the Resistance series.

No. Mass Effect 3 was not a good alien invasion movie. Not even by a Micheal Bay standards. Explosions withstanding.

perfect dark would be my all time favorite, that game has some awesome weapons that seemed out of this world.

Destroy All Humans was such a cool game I wish they would do another even though the last few weren't that great.
