I am a big fan or 3rd person shooters, especially ones that include a lot of exploration and/or upgradeable equipment. My eight year old son really likes it and I was thinking about buying him the full 360 Alan Wake game. If he and I enjoy American Nightmare is it safe to say that we'll feel the same about the first game?
I'm also thinking about getting Lost Planet 2 as well. My son plays the original game more than I did/do, but that's more to do with having less time to play games than he does than it is not liking the game. He's been playing the demo with a friend of his that I ok'd and the both play it a lot together on the multiplayer. I'm not much for multiplayer but they seem to enjoy it. Are both the multiplayer and the campaign at least on par with the first LP?
You should check out Borderlands (with excellent DLC) which is cheap, and then get BL2. Both are supreme first person shooters, with humor, immersive stories, excellent graphics, interesting skill trees, and and infinite amount of loot and upgrades to score. Borderlands is probably the king of all games ever made, as far as scoring loot, unique items, and upgrades. Easily out does the 2nd best which was Diablo2. I'm not including Diablo 3 in the mix because Blizzard North totally f**ked that game up, beyond recognition.
