If you are someone who loves cinematic action games, then Alan Wake Remastered is going to charm you in no time. In the game, you have to play as perturbed author Alan Wake who sets off on a journey in search of his missing wife, Alice.

The most intriguing part of the game is that the journey Alan embarks on is based on a horror story written by him that he had no clue or memory of. The story comes true in front of his naked eyes, and the presence of supernatural entities overpowers him. The protagonist is left with no other option but to wage war against the forces of darkness.
