Seriously, why does it find flares so interesting, I mean, it doesn't even have eyes! Does this confirm it sees electromagnetism? Even so, why does it care about a stupid flare?

Because if the Alien was as good as Kane's son, the game would be impossible.

It sees the same way it does in Alien3.

As for why it's fascinated by flares - child of the 70's.

Light bouncing off objects and onto the back of whatever passes from an Alien's retina.

If it used echo-location it couldn't see flares through closed doors of sufficient thickness

Also it would hum roger waters songs every time a flare was thrown.

Is he? Damn, so I could've used them when I was low on flamethrower fuel or noisemakers. And I wondered why there were so many flares scattered around when there was no point in using them since I had a flashlight.

Well, being as light is a form of electromagnetism, seeing electromagnetism like a shark would solve the problem, no?

The Alien is curious. It would've been cool to see more examples of it being curious about its environment here and there.
