Alien: Isolation

I fucking did it

Just finished Alien: Isolation today. This game was amazing but Jesus Christ I never want to play it again. I started on medium until I got to medical. Kept dying and had to take breaks in between tries because every time I tried to get through medical my hands kept shaking and my heart rate rocketed up. I'm pretty sure this fucking game gave me ptsd. Lowered the difficulty to easy but still had panic attacks until I finally put aside my pride and brought it down to novice.

This game humbled me. I like playing stealth games and I thought I could handle this. I was so, so wrong. I was so used to playing games that gave me power – games that made me an unstoppable killing machine. But in this game the Xenomorph was the unstoppable killing machine. And I was so utterly vulnerable.

I completed the game on novice but I went back to do the first medical section on hard, just to see if I made it. I did, and got the Hide, Run, Survive achievement, when I got into the elevator, until I looked down and saw it's tail stabbed through my body.

Brilliant game. Never playing it again.

PS. Midway while I was playing it, I took a break and sat down to watch Aliens. The movie never scared me before, but I found myself starting to panic during certain scenes. Anyone experienced this too? I want to rewatch Alien now to see if I get scared too.
