What Alan Wake does well is tell a story. LoProto writes:
It’s easy to equate most bits of horror as a throwback to early Stephen King, but the story woven within this tale of darkness truly is reminiscent of classic psychological horror. Following Wake on his journey to uncover the truth behind Caldron Lake, his missing wife, and the Dark Presence rings true of classic novelized horror. Throughout, “Alan Wake” feels less like a video game and more like an interactive Lovecraftian novel as the writer’s mind is bent and twisted to a point where most people would be unable to return from.
