    Default Alien: Isolation is Actually Miss Pac-man

    A character in a maze...
    ...running around dark corridors to pick up stuff...
    ...menaced by unbeatable monsters that you have to avoid because they will one-shot you...
    ...and you need a special item to temporarily force them to retreat.

    And all with ~1980 aesthetics? And a female protagonist?

    Technically there's only one unbeatable monster, you can kill all the rest (including the androids); it's just that typically doing so is LOUD and thus a bad idea.

    What tends to be even more fun is getting the "ghosts" to off each other I've gotten my good xenomorph buddy to clear entire rooms for me while I cuddled romantically in an airvent with Motionsensor-kun.

    EDIT: Uh. Apparently, it's possible to change the title of a thread by double-clicking on the white space around the title in the forum page.

    You could always rename threads, it's deleting them that you can't do.

    I always enjoyed the implied plot of the second image. (And speaking of Pac-Man plots...)
