It took me far too long to experience Alan Wake for the first time. Originally released in 2010, I completed the first Alan Wake game *checks notes* three days ago. I was able to play this legendary survival horror game (including its two DLC expansions) at its very best thanks to the excellent Alan Wake Remastered edition, which is currently massively discounted on Xbox. You're welcome.
