Games of 2014: Alien: Isolation - You're Newt going to believe this

"It's been a long time since I played a horror game where I needed someone else present in the room just to give me a little bit of reassurance. I couldn't play Silent Hill 2 on my own, couldn't play the early Resident Evils, and certainly couldn't play Slender: The Eight Pages without another unfortunate soul beside me, sharing my misery.

The first was P.T, the free demo that turned out to be a taster for Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro's Silent Hills. It won't be on many Game of the Year lists, though perhaps it deserves to be.

Alien Isolation is my GOTY for 2014. Game kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I have played a game in a long time that kept up the suspense like this game does so well. I might do another hard playthrough again soon

Same here. An incredibly competant and well realised game.

Finally just got enough time to sit and play Alien Isolation, no disappointment here that game is bad ass. I agree, I haven't jumped so many times playing games for many years now can't wait till P.T. comes out.
