    AVP 2 is a fucking classic, one of my favorite fps's. It's a real shame that formula hasn't been successful since. It shouldn't be that hard, honestly. I really enjoyed Isolation as well, but it brings out the wimp in me. I love horror and have no issues with horror movies and games, I actually rather enjoy them. But I find it hard to play Isolation because it's so damn nerve-racking. Never actually finished it.

    Alien and Aliens 2 are among my favorite movies. So is Predator, for that matter. Hence I wish the AvP franchise would be saved from the gutter.

    The Aliens vs Predator arcade game. I played a little bit of Alien Isolation, but stopped playing for some reason. I really should pick it up again. Aliens: Colonial Marines wasn't that bad, but I went into it with low expectations.

    For movies; Alien and Aliens. I didn't like Alien Resurrection and Prometheus. Haven't seen Aliens 3, or any of the AVP movies.

    Favorite game: Alien: Isolation

    Films: Alien, Aliens, Alien 3: Assembly Cut, and I am one of the few folks that actually likes Prometheus.

    I also would also like Isolation 2, but Sega had crazy sales expectations for that game.
    This is coming soon

    AVP2 IMO was the best of the 3 major AVP games. First was fun but abit too dated and third one was alright at best. I have played some insanely good mods for AVP2, that make the marine campaign even more of a horror game.

    If anything I want more horror games out of this. Get us Isolation 2 but give us more depth. Make it more like system shock 2 (it alreayd had a lot of influence from shock 2 but more RPG mechanics would rock) give us a proper aliens horror game as a marine. Limited ammo, overwhelming enemy numbers, challenging combat and etc.

    Also Alien Covenant looks sick, hope its good and I never thought Prometheus was a bad film. Good with some mediocre moments in it. Just wish it had more to do with alien.

    Best Alien game?

    AVP extinction (RTS on PS2/Xbox anyone? XD), Alien Trilogy, AVP1-2, and finally, Alien: The Gun.

    Best Alien Movie? Is there any doubt that the only possible answer is "Alien and Aliens"?

    Haven't play much alien games, saw even less movies, so take it with the grain of salt.

    Fav. games? Alien: Resurrection (PS1) - perfect combo of horror and FPS with prophetic control scheme; mentioned above Alien: Isolation.

    Fav. movie? Can't say, saw only the first Alien.

    games: alien: resurrection for the psx and alien isolation even more so
    movies: alien and aliens. 3 is decent enough apart from killing off the entire supporting cast of aliens immediately.

    also destroy all humans is a game with aliens so I'm throwing it out there as its amazing.

    Favorite Alien(s) games:

    Aliens vs Predator 2: Action FPS and action story wise probably the best Aliens game, even if the graphics are rather cartoonish.
    Sadly this game never got a sequel and its expansion pack is average.

    Alien Isolation: Probably the title that is the most truthful to the original Alien movie and its atmosphere.
    Great recreation of the visuals of the original movie and expanding on these. One of my favorite parts is the reactor section.
    I enjoyed playing and finishing this once but I really not interested in replaying it again.

    Aliens Infestation: Fun little action platformer that was intended as a prequel to Aliens Colonial Marines before that game's storyline got changed. Ended up being much superior to that title but still suffers from problems of being to short.
    I really wish this game had more levels, more equipment (including a missile launcher and plasma rifle), the ability to carry two heavy weapons at once, and a better outro.

    Honorable mention: AvP Arcade game: Gameplay wise it is not actually that impressive nor is the story, though that one would have made a much better premise for an AvP movie than the actual movies (a spaceship crashes on the Alien future Earth, infecting a large city with xenomorphs. Marines try to contain the infestation but are hunted along with the xenomorphs by predators).
    Still looks visually rather nice.


    Favorite Alien(s) movies:

    I have seen all of them including the terrible AVP movies and Prometheus which ended up rather pretentious as well as unclear because of Lindeloff "Mystery box" (Hollywood, Abrams, Orci, Kurtzman, and Lindeloff are idiots, stop putting them on fan popular franchises)

    Alien: Duh! The one that started the franchise and still holds up as a standard for science fiction horror.

    Aliens: Classic action-scifi-horror that took a lot of inspiration from Heinlein's Starship Troopers. Basically established the movie space marine tropes.
    (do wish Cameron had never bothered with the Alien Queen and just stuck to the original xenomorph reproduction concept)

    Alien 3: Well I kind of liked the atmosphere even if the movie is a terrible sequel to Aliens.


    Dammit, I forgot the name of the poster with whom I talked about the Alien(s) movies. He told me that one of the problems with the franchise was that it was a rather One-Trick pony.
    Once you have seen it the surprise and the fear is gone because you know what to expect.
    Hollywood keeps trying to recreate the atmosphere/tension of the first two movies but doesn't understand why that is not possible any more.

    Anyway, this franchise is over. Give it a rest and move on.

    Unless Covenant completely bombs, I don't expect Fox to anytime soon.

    Once the new aliens movie with Signourey and Hicks comes out that retcons the god awful alien 3 and alien:R I can live happy. Maybe some new video games for a new era in the franchise?

    I think you are a bit to optimistic to be honest, I neither trust Hollywood nor the game industry.

    I wouldn't count on that film ever getting made and if it does, Blomkamp will probably make an even bigger mess of things.

    Alien: Isolation is fine and the only decent thing related to the franchise since the Dark Horse comics.

    Well, the arcade beat-em-ups but those aren't exactly high art either.

    I am a fan of the first AVP game for nostalgic reasons and the Alien Trilogy fps for PS1. Hell even the Aliens 3 16 bit game for Snes/Genesis was good it had a metroid platformer vibe.
