1. Alone in the Dark: Illumination
And now with this year’s Alone in the Dark: Illumination, it seems that this is the last nail on the coffin for the series. Because it’s not just that developer Atari’s effort was boring and unsatisfying to play, even if the gameplay mechanic of weakening enemies with light (borrowed from the great Alan Wake game) was rather cool. And this game was actually more of a cooperative shooter like Valve’s Left for Dead 2, but lacking the fun factor, and had none of the scares and thrills of its predecessors. It was also rather glitchy with missing sound effects and graphical issues like enemies walking through walls on occasion, as it is clear that Alone in the Dark: Illumination was not a great game by any stretch of the imagination.
