    Horror/Suspense games are probably my favorite genre. Ever since I saw this game I couldn't help but draw comparisons to Silent Hill (one of the all time greatest eerie, spooky, wtf games of all time).

    I'm regretting not buying this game before but as much as I would love to play, I don't think it would be right for me to enter.

    Good luck to everyone and get those entries in before the deadline :toast:

    I don't know anything about this game, but if its spooky, and the wife cuddles up nice and tight like when we played Silent hill then this is a game for the both of us :rockout:

    It looks like a horror game.

    I would like in the draw please. Alan Wake looks like a good lights out, headphones on late night game. That appeals to me.

    TPU for the win!

    I don't see why you think it wouldn't be right for you to enter! I respect your feeling on that, but I say I'll throw you in the pot anyway (you certainly deserve to be included if nothing else). If you win and don't want to claim it, you can always give it to someone else ;)

    I'm sure I don't speak only for myself on this.

    I really like the Movie/story feel to the game. I have wanted it ever since it came out. Very Erie yet fun filled action game. Would love to own it! :toast:

    In before the deadline I hope!

    Thanks for offering a giveaway at TPU... what a positive, friendly and generous community here!

    It was the original concept pictures and first demo screenies that captured my attention all those years ago. I was very disappointed that it wasnt realised to PC, but glad a port has now been done. The real reason to be excited by this game; the combination 1) a bit like Mafia (1) in it's time... fantastic graphics and story+gameplay, and 2) I will be forced to finally upgrade my GPU to run this properly! And the 660 is about to launch... ;)
