I for one love a good game that is connected to a particular franchise, or genre that I love.
Not a big gamer at all, not the type at least who feels he needs to own the latest thing of everything, that sort of faded away once I turned 17 or 18 I think.
AVP3 was the reason I bought a PS3 back in the days, it seemed like a dream come true and in many, many ways it was. The hundreds of hours I spend on the multiplayer still brings back fond childhood memories.
When a friend pointed out an article to me, somewhat during 2011/2012'ish where they showed the big head crusher type Alien I won't lie I was I was pretty stoked.
Then I saw the first trailer they releashed, which was probably the first time I was triggered to notice the directional changes happening between movies.
I was a semi-young lad who kept reading the Youtube comments warfaring between each other whether James Cameron was either the saving grace of the franchise, or the harbringer of its doom.
And all I was like was: who the F's is this James Cameron and Ridley Scott guy? I should learn more about them.
Either way it looked promising, but it sort of got off my rader. Exams and all, and real life crashing into me like a Juggernaut spaceship
Then when it came out and saw the gameplay I was bummed. Not massivly dissappointed like so many others, just a big massive meh'
Never felt the need to play it at all.
Then the trailers came out for Alien: Isolation and I've been obsessively following every bit of news and footage I got my hands on. Still one of the best games I've ever played in my entire life. A true piece of art.
A:CM though, it had the potential to be exactly that. I still occasionally check out that first trailer just to see what could have been.
