Alien: Isolation (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
It might be strange to include a game where we spent the majority of our time hiding in a box, far too afraid to come out, but Alien: Isolation left a lasting impression. The demo at E3 puts you in a small area with the alien, where the only objective is to escape. Creative Assembly’s extraordinary direction, misdirection and use of light as we crept through the area, eyes often glued to the motion tracker. The alien stalks through the walls and vents so you are never safe.
