I blame AVP2 for getting addicted lol. Hoping for a blend of that and a blend of Isolation.
All the way back to the NES with Alien3 here, though I liked the movies before that. That was the first real Alien game I ever played. I did get a chance to play the AVP arcade game a few times after that though.

AVP:Gold and AVP 2 were both great games. I still have the discs and have them installed on my computer although I haven't played them in years.

A new game as good as Isolation would be nice, regardless of the playstyle.

Cant remember if I played Aliens: a comic book adventure or AvP arcade first.

Can't remember if I played the Alien 'FPS' or Konami arcade game first. The latter I think.

My first legit Alien game experience came where you'd least expect it: Great Lakes training command. When I got put in separations, I found out they have a lounge for the recruits in seps, as well as graduated sailors awaiting orders. The lounge was basically an arcade, and they had Aliens: Extermination.

I used a lot of quarters. That game was a pain, but a welcome one, because in seps, it's a good idea to keep your mind occupied. It was always open, because all the other girls cared about was blasting their stupid rap music on a touchscreen jukebox.

I've seen playthroughs of other Alien games, but Extermination has so far been the only one I've been able to put my hands on.

Extermination is so much fun! I completed that on a holiday in Turkey. When I win the lottery I'll pick myself up a cabinet in the house.  ;D

I didn't get to complete it. I didn't have a lot of money in boot camp, and even when I got my laundry card liquidated, there were a ton of twenties that I couldn't put in the quarter machine. I put a five in, thinking I had enough, and then I couldn't take down the queen.

Trips to the lounge were random, and when I had quarters, they were fun.

I know it's probably gonna be an online shooter with no tense horror feeling, or the fear of being thrown into impossible odds, or have any cool mechanics (like welding shut doors, or repairing Sentry Turrets like an actual engineer, or setting up bulkheads, rerouting power systems, priming escape systems, and so on...), ect.  It'll probably be a CoD style PvP shooter with humans vs aliens...

But I hope.. I really hope... It'll have a full length (30+ Hour) story campaign that actually captures the feeling of being "Just a jarhead" thrown into impossible odds, with potential permadeath of team mates, and intense situations where shooting isn't always the best option. 

Guess we will find out soon enough.

The majority of games has you play as a "jarhead", personally I think they need to step away from it for awhile. Isolation was great for many reasons, one of them being that it focused on emulating the first film instead of the second.

I think they need to give the player jarhead some character. Give him something interesting, and not a carbon copy of the Marines from the movie. There's a potential for a game with a Marine protagonist to rival Isolation.

Isolation hit the nail on the head when it came to emulating the first movie, but there's only so much you can do with that because walking and hiding at a tectonically slow rate gets boring, and the fear can turn into frustration.

The issue all lies in character development, not the occupation of the character you're playing as.

Maybe instead of Jarhead or Big-Name Character, you're just a civilian who got shat on by crap circumstances and have to pull people together to... Oh wait that was Aliens: Crucible.  Derp

((lol))

But no, that wouldn't be a bad way to go. Jarheads are kinda overdone at this point, I wouldn't mind being escorted by one, or helping a team of them, but don't wanna be them again.
