This does sound pretty good
Maybe have the queen being selected at random, or the player with the highest score on the Aliens team become the queen.
But I do miss the horror element to Alien; it seems no developer can get that right, the Aliens just aren't intimidating or very strong in the games.
Yeah good point, perhaps the alien team have to protect the queen like a command post.
I loved the game mode in AVP where there was only one alien at the start and gradually you all became aliens until there was only 1 marine left.
Imagine being an alien and grabbing a marine, but instead of taking his dog tags you put your little teeth through his face.
It could easily work, i still think the best Alien game was Alien VS predator on the PC.
It had the horror of the franchise and was very dark and scary.
