I am very fond of Alone in the Dark, but there aren't many people who are big fans of the series.
I have every game in the series released so far and I must say, they are very well made. But for some reason, my copy of the first game doesn't seem to have any volumne control.
I first got into the games midway into 2001, after buying The New Nightmare. At the time, I thought it was actually better than Resident Evil. Well, the older releases anyway...
I longed for a proper sequel, and although one is coming out soon, I have my doubts about it being a horror game. Some of it looks more like a pilot episode of 24 or something. The graphics do look impressive though, and I'll keep my eyes peeled for any updates on it.
