While waiting in line to play Alien: Isolation, I heard screams from inside the demo room. A few minutes later they were mine.

The latest game to tackle the Alien universe is perhaps the scariest thing on display at this year’s E3, a first person survival experience unlike just about any big-name video game before it. One of the most important things about the game is its name — this is Alien, not Aliens. Whereas the series, both in film and game form, has shifted towards action, Isolation takes its inspiration from the original Ridley Scott horror masterpiece. The premise is nearly identical in both experiences: you're stranded on a space station, with a hulking alien wandering around. You need to find a way to get off the station before the alien finds you. If it does, you’re dead.
