...so i suppose the usa market aiming the supposedly worked...
I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say here, but if it'll help, let me clarify. I don't think American Nightmare is a better game. I just had more fun playing it. I also had fun playing Alan Wake, just not as much fun as I had playing American Nightmare. Overall, Alan Wake is the more satisfying of the two, because it has fun gameplay and a strong narrative (even if the narrative didn't quite finish).
If you are saying that the developers were aiming for the US market by making the gameplay faster and easier, well, I suppose in my case that worked to an extent. I can't really help if I had more fun playing American Nightmare than I had when playing Alan Wake. But that doesn't mean I like the game as a whole more than Alan Wake because I liked one element of American Nightmare's gameplay more than I liked that same element in Alan Wake.
Each to their own taste ofcourse, certain not everyone has to like same games :)
Anyway i just have vague memory of reading somewhere that the American Nightmare was developed more "american console gamers in mind" - but no idea where i could have picked that up.
Whatever the case, i felt AN was huge let down after playing through the original Alan Wake and its bonus episodes. It just felt plain cheap on every level. I DID finish it, as i knew it was short and i had paid for it too ;) ...though i am seriously hoping if there is going to me more Wake, its more in the spirit of the first one (which is not perfect, but did quite much right).
Just in case that i dont accidently derail the thread:
-Anomaly Warzone Earth (about month ago)
-Deadlight (couple months ago)
