It’s that time folks. Yes, that’s right, our Game Quote of the Month. And it goes something like this for August:

“Stephen King once wrote that nightmares exist outside of logic, and there’s little fun to be had in explanations. They’re antithetical to the poetry of fear. In a horror story, the victim keeps asking “Why” but there can be no explanation and there shouldn’t be one. The unanswered mystery is what stays with us the longest and it’s what we will remember in the end. My name is Alan Wake. I’m a writer.”

What’s it from? Alan Wake

Year: 2010

Platform: Xbox 360, PC

Gaming context: It’s the first thing you hear upon starting the campaign in Alan Wake.

The game is by far one of my favourite games, not only because it takes place in my home state of Washington but because of its fantastic story that keeps drawing you in until its sudden twist ending…

Although a direct sequel never came to be, Alan Wake: American Horror Story kept fans (mostly) happy. Still, can we have that sequel guys? Please.

You can hear the quote below:



  1. One of the best games ever made. There’s no question about it. And I say that with the proud ignorance of being a writer myself, that everything in this game is cum-worthy of the material presented.
