Played six of the eight and loved them all. Will def get both SOMA and Gen Zero when they are on sale. Thanks for the fine article.

I’ve had the Turing test in my back log since I got it GWG ages ago. Thank you for this article, I will be checking it out soon. Also, I’m excited to check out soma, looks really good.

If Firewatch was a Twilight Zone ep, it's probably end up being a bad one based on how it ends.

"That's it?" Would probably be what most people say about it. I think it's a good game, but wow the way it wraps up is so disappointing.

This is the lst Ive been looking for. Came home from seeing Us and started rewatching Original Twilight Zone and Fringe. Guessing The Dark Picture will make the list when it eventually drops.

My thoughts exactly. I think this is what brought the game down in terms of rating for me. For what it was worth, it was very interesting while playing, but the ending just left a lot to be desired...

Some games I've definitely enjoyed + some that I think I would, but I found it odd that there's no links to the games from the article?

Alan Wake was one of my absolute highlights of the past console generation!

Haven't played any of the others, so I really appreciate the article :)

Apparently James Cameron got the idea for Terminator from some old episodes of Twilight Zone !!!!

I've had Alan Wake installed since I completed Quantum Break, I think it's about time to get that done.

I don't know, it was like Gone Home for me, you're expecting something really interesting and cool, but it ends up be comparably mundane. Gone Home was at least totally spoiled by the time I got to it though. I guess Firewatch was too, as I've only watched a LPs on it. I think I have it, but it's not really a game you need to play yourself after seeing its end.

Part of me is just wanting to post to make me watch the twilight zone episodes. Loved Alan Wake and its whole feel so I'm all for anything that feels like it.

Huge Twilight Zone fan! Love everything about this article and episode comparisons are a nice touch. Will be adding these to my backlog for sure.
