"Oh no, Alien is going back to its horror roots! That sucks! 0/10"

In the broad horror genre perhaps but isn't the original Alien more traditionally about a bunch of boomers running afoul of a spooky monster?  :P

that's what nerds would be writing after hearing news of that casting.
freaking out over every single detail, knowing everything about the plot months in advance.


A POWER LOADER????
ALIEN ISN'T AN ACTION MOVIE WHAT ARE THEY dOING OVER THERE

CHEESY HOLLYWOOD CRAP!!!

etc.

To be fair, if I'd known about Burke's vest beforehand, I would probably have boycotted the film.

Eal

My contention is that if Aliens were released today, there would be youtube review after youtube review talking about how bad Burke's character motivation is and how dumb of a series of decisions he needs to make for the plot to happen.

Were contemporary reviews like that? I'm sure there had to be a few that mentioned Paul Reiser's character. I know, I'm a bad fan and should have already researched this.

Alien predates the rise of 20-somethings falling afoul of something  spooky as a horror trope.

Not by much - the earliest slashers were mid to late 70s, Texas Chainsaw Massacre was an inspiration for Scott, Halloween came out during filming and F13 was only a year or two away before it made young people getting slaughtered the defining characteristic of horror for the next 10-20 years or so - but it's never been something that impacted the series.
