Alan Wake, is a 3rd person action/adventure where you are a famous bookwriter having writers block, so you go vacation on an island called Bright falls, just to get away from it all, his wife who goes along with Alan is DEATHLY afraid of the dark, they stay in a small island cottage, and as the sun is setting she “surprises” Alan with a typewriter, and he gets infuriated becuase he doesn’t want to think about writing, so he storms out of the house becuase it is dark out hand he know she wont follow him, suddenly, the power cuts off in his house, he hears his wife scream several times and runs back inside, he finds her body floating down into the lake, he jumps in after her, and wakes up in a crashed car about to fall off a cliff.

also, the darkness guys look like this:
