    Can you watch these on a PC, or is a couch required?

      It's too bad these videos are xbox only. They'd be far superior on pc.

        I'm only whining that they dumbed it down to the point where I couldn't care less what platform it is on anymore. It was marketed as a super-awesome open world horror adventure extravaganza that will make your DX10 PC its bitch. Not just another linear 3rd person shooter for the ADHD consoletards who couldn't navigate down a straight water slide without radar waypoints and help messages.

          You should'nt care which platform its on because its has ended up being a great game regardless.

          As for Alan Wake being an open-world game.. how exactly would it work better this way?

            You know, exploring the world and figuring stuff out on you own, getting immersed and challenged instead of playing with your brains turned off... Do I really need to explain this?

              Yes i get that but my question was how would this automatically make it a *better* game?

              Say you are exploring this vast open world and you are missing one vital clue or piece of the puzzle. I can imagine its gonna be extremely tedious to be travelling around all these locations systematically checking every house for the right person to talk to or object to examine. It could be the most brilliant and intelligently designed puzzle ever made but you are still having to do the leg-work to solve it.

                I never claimed being open world would "automatically make it a better game" in my first post. Only that I was disappointed that it wasn't because it was marketed as such.

                I much prefer games with freedom of movement and action. Getting stuck and frustrated at some points only makes getting through feel like you actually accomplished something by yourself.
