Alone in the Dark 1:
The beginning of it all. Time has not been kind as the animation is almost comedic today. But I remember at the time when this was new, this game was scary as hell! Puzzles were hard, yet not impossible to figure out. The atmosphere in this game kept you on the edge of your seat almost all the time. This is truly the Godfather of Survival Horror.
Alone in the Dark 2:
Pretty much exactly the same as the first game, but improving on everything. Bigger environment better visuals. More solid combat. The only thing in this game that was weaker than the original was the story, but even that was good too.

Perhaps the weakest of the three games. Visually it improves, but story and gameplay do seem to suffer a bit a time as this style of control was getting a little stale at the time.
