Technology Tell writes, "I couldn’t play Alien: Isolation at night. The notion of being alone, in a dark room, in an empty house, while going through a game where I’m also alone, in dark rooms and corridors, in an almost-deserted space station, hit too close to home. Especially since both had an invader. In Alien: Isolation, it was a xenomorph playing cat-and-mouse with Ellen Ripley’s daughter, while at home my cat waited until the absolute worst moments to make his presence known. Alien: Isolation gets inside of your head."
