Added DiffLines:

* NothingIsScarier: Instead of linear stages that are almost always sending Taken your way to run or fight from, a great deal of American Nightmare, especially if you're after all the manuscript pages, is spent wandering large, open and eerie environments with rarely a Taken encounter to be had.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatCameOutWrong: On the first go when you have to fetch Dr Meadows' camera for the telescope, she tells to you to be careful, it's quite expensive and they don't have a replacement. Fortunately, she's quick to realize that that was a lot more callous than she intended and meant for you to be careful.

* {{Expy}}:[[spoiler: Agent Nightingale heavily resembles Agent Gordon Cole of TwinPeaks, who is himself in turn played by none other than DavidLynch, who's in addition to that one acting role also one half of the show's writing team and its occasional director alongside Mark Frost. However, unlike Gordon, Nightingale is a terrible person and an alcoholic with no control over his impulses.]]

* {{Badass}}: Surprisingly, Alan is upgraded into being one as of American Nightmare, albeit a very polite badass who shows a great deal of concern for people around him caught in his dangerous tale. What makes him badass is how together he is in this game compared to the previous, and how casually he treats fighting the Taken.

* DeusExMachina: [[spoiler:Zane attempts to write one for himself by bringing Barbara back with no reason and explanation behind it, and as a result... Well, it doesn't end well for him.]]

to:

* DeusExMachina: [[spoiler:Zane attempts Discussed and defied. The manuscript is written as such because the story has to progress in a believable way for the Dark Presence to be bound by it. Alan can't just say "then the Dark Presence died, The End," because then the how and why of it is left to the imagination of the Dark Presence, which could easily find a loophole. [[spoiler:When Zane attempted to write one for himself by bringing Barbara back with no reason and explanation behind it, and as a result... Well, it the Dark Presence filled that bit in. It doesn't end well for him.]]

** Suuuuure, Alan, going into the ''very'' dark trailer owned by the monotone-speaking person who knows you're looking for manuscript pages even though you never told them is ''obviously'' the smart thing to do! Made far, far worse by the fact he's DangerouslyGenreSavvy ''considering he wrote it.'' How many times does he fall for the oldest horror story tricks in the book, again?

* PortalPool: Cauldron Lake.
* PosthumousCharacter: We learn far more about Stuckey as a Taken than we ever do as a real person. His extreme fondness for hot dogs, for one thing.
* PostModernism: Directly mentions and blatantly references authors and shows that have inspired it several times.
