Sam Lake Picks His Favourite Remedy Moments
[Max Payne 1&2, Alan Wake, Quantum Break & Control]

A little while ago, IGN sat down with Sam Lake (Creative Director at Remedy) to talk about his favourite Remedy moments.

For each pick, we hear about what influenced those moments, such as his love for fragmented and looping narratives, mixing mediums, bringing in graphic novels for Max Payne, and misdirection. We also hear about his collaboration with Poets of the Fall and working on set with the brilliant Mathew Porretta as Dr Casper Darling.

As you watch through, how many moments would match your favourite picks?

While the video's title states that every Remedy game is included, there are the occasional missed adventures such as Death Rally, Agents of Storm, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, and CrossfireX. The games featured are those that are considered to be key Remedy titles: Max Payne 1&2, Alan Wake, Quantum Break and Control.

If you haven't finished Remedy's latest adventure, don't worry; as the interview was recorded before the release of Alan Wake 2, a specific scene wasn't picked to avoid spoilers. Check out the video below!
