Alan Wake

I picked this up 5 years ago for next to nothing and I'm not into horror games, so take this with a grain of salt. It has generally good reviews, although it didn't grab me particularly. You play as Alan Wake, a writer, and the characters from your book try to kill you when you go on holiday. It's definitely aged - the controls are a little clunky, and there are a lot of low quality cut scenes mixed in with the gameplay. The graphics are a strange mix of really low quality textures and a few higher polygon count objects which can be a bit jarring. Perhaps worth trying if you really like the genre though.
