Silent hill 4 was really good, i don't know what was wrong with thoes reviewers, its also pretty scary. its not perfect though, there were some real poor design choices but they dont really ruin the experience.

Sato said he added imperfections to Maria to make her look more real in the same documentary we both watched. It's just weird that you would say that he made Maria perfect, because he specifically says he made her imperfect, adding blemishes to her skin and a belly flap.

1. actually any corpse you come by in sh2 is an edited version of james' character model. every single one not just the first. 2. angela's character model and voice were intentionally made to seem like an older adult woman to reflect how intensely her trauma has aged her. 3. pt mostly didn't work as a surprise sh teaser bc the loading icon was literally the halo of the sun (the red save point symbol) and anyone who's played a silent hill game all the way through caught it. i remember loading it up upon release at my buddy's house and we're both like "oh... is this is a silent hill game?" like right away at the title screen

Hold up fact 17! That Michael Gough picture is of the actor Michael Gough (pronounced Goff) who played Alfred in the Burton/Schumacher Batman films. Not voice actor Michael Gough. Just saying...

TonyaMarie Brown (2 months ago)
Talked too a bit too fast for me because I'm hard of hearing but very entertaining and well arranged. I even enjoyed hearing what I already knew. I just wished for more specific details. Nobody talks about the butcher in Origins or how he or Travis may have become a precursor Pyramid Head. My favorites are 3,and Origins or zero as it's called in Japan, and especially the unfinished Silent Hills, PT, which I am fortunate to have. I think Lisa from there is the scariest monster of them all. I was mugged and thrown down stairs and lost my baby so I can relate, maybe that's why she scares me so much. I did successfully have two sons a few years after. I now have RSD which is a chronic pain disease so I play these to fight the pain.

Rocky Ramone You can easily emulate SH1 and there are PC versions of SH2 and SH3 that you can get working fairly well with some tweaks.

yup that sad

Wish they atleast rereleased SH 1-3 for modern game platforms.HD collection was a bad port for the last consoles and theres no real good way to play them on PC from what i can tell
Erizo Conciso (3 months ago)
Pyramid head is just James' alter-ego tryin to guide us without the distraction of Maria, not a executioner of prisoners.

Did anyone else get to go to the silent hill house at Halloween Horror Nights a few years ago? It was amazing, the best house I’ve ever seen at HHH and replicated the SH environment so perfectly

"..a rare feat for any franchise"?? here are some few examples without thinking too much (unlike movies where this statement is actually true): doom2-quake2-assassins creed2-resident evil2-witcher2-infamous2-uncharted2-killzone2-cod2-battlefield2-megaman2....omg there are too many. And don't make me talk about the third parts.

It would have been cool if you included the many horror references found in the original Silent Hill: - The chainsaw shop "Cut-Rite Chain Saws" is taken From The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - The florist "Mushnick's Florist" is taken from Little Shop of Horrors - The newspapers in the news boxes around town read "Bill Skins Fifth" which was taken from The Silence of the Lambs - Around walls/shutters throughout the town you may spot "REDRUM" which was taken from The Shining

I actually like Silent Hill: Homecoming, to me it is not as bad as people say.
fotakatos (21 days ago)
Yeah, I actually played it again last year, after finishing Downpour, and I was actually positively surprised by how similar Homecoming was to the old games in retrospect. I ragequit on some boss, however. Man, that game is hard.

So they photographed the areas they wanted to use as models for the game. I'm sorry, but I'm imagining this: "Sir, could you please direct me to the filthiest bathroom in this town?"

Great facts but you should´ve mentioned Junji Ito in the Silent Hills segment :,(
Tendividedbysix (5 months ago)
It's all about Silent Hill 2, c'mon. The first game holds a special place too, and 3 was pretty good. I think 3 just needed a little something extra (or less of the cult bullshit). After that it was all pretty downhill for me, haven't liked a Silent Hill game since.

GIDE328 (6 months ago)
Silent Hill 3 is my personal favorite, and is oddly familiar.
Yoxiv (6 months ago)
Minor correction should be made: Silent Hill 4 was always a Silent Hill game from the beginning, not a spinoff or spiritual successor. In fact, it began production roughly around the same time that Silent Hill 3 was being made. Because of this, the team was basically split between the two, which ultimately explains why SH3 came off as a shorter experience than the first 2 entries, and The Room lacking some of the polish that the other 3 had.

is it weird i love looking at photo's from the abandoned mine cities in Japan? They have to make a horror city in silent hill style the fog is perfect there

EatMoreWaffles (6 months ago)
Every time I tell someone I love Stranger Things for the fact it was partially inspired by Silent Hill, they flip out in agony and get pissed because they want Stranger things to be seen as pure and original. It's ridiculous, but who tf cares? I enjoy knowing Silent hill inspires so much, even silent hill was inspired by other content and it's cool, not a bad thing...??
EatMoreWaffles I agree 100%. people need to realise that ideas start somewhere

I like sh2-3-4 Origins and Shattered memories. 2 and SM are my favourite. 4 and origins my least favourite. I still enjoy all of them on the ps2. I'd buy a good remaster without a doubt.. but with what they did to 2 and 3 I don't think there is going to be a good remaster/remake.
Doctor Dex (6 months ago)
I really don't like the 107 format. It only forces you to put a bunch of filler in there. Sure there are some neat facts, but it gets buried under things that are common knowledge.
BUTTHUNTER ICHIBAN (6 months ago)
63 is incorrect. Sato said that he designed Maria to be flawed (bleached hair, roll of flab, etc.) because it made her seem more human in contrast to the perfect characters from games like Final Fantasy. She's supposed to be a sexualised version of Mary.
Jamie Owns (6 months ago)
The 3rd silent hill is my favourite sadly I didn't play through 2nd one before youtube. But essentially youtubers ruined silent hill 2 for me by spoiling the story.
Jose M. Figueroa Jr. (6 months ago)
Hope they make the half series, Lion king style. But DARKER. Silent Hill one and so half, for starters, where you play the game through the eyes of someone else in the game, not particularly the main protagonist. Also, more origins type games, where events take place after one game, but before the others. Please don't judge me on this subject. I'm only saying, out of respect.
Scrawny McMassive (6 months ago)
I recall hearing something about Mary's corpse being in the back of James' car at the beginning of SH2. I think it was confirmed by the devs on Twitter, but I honestly have no recollection of how that theory got started or where I heard it so there's like a solid 30% chance I'm talking absolute nonsense, but hey. That's a thing
Jose M. Figueroa Jr. (6 months ago)
In my not so humble opinion, silent hill is darker than Resident Evil in countless ways. Resident Evil is too cookie cutter, while Silent Hill switches things up in its own dark way. No nasty debates, please.
StubenhockerElite (6 months ago)
The original Team Silent are real heroes of the industry. They are proof that passion and talent can get you far.
PACMAN3851 (6 months ago)
If you really believe any silent hill game after 4 is canon or good in any way. You're delusional and in denial or stupid.

SH4 has one of the best back stories for a so called spin-off, much better than SH3 and everything done after The Room.
Helen’s Chocobo Farm (6 months ago)
My favorite is three since it was my first and came with an awesome soundtrack. I’m not even sorry but I like 4 and Homecoming also, even if I don’t consider the last one cannon. They’re just fun to play. I love the atmosphere. 😍

Silent Hill 3 is the best one in the series, its like the Resident Evil 4 of the franchise.
fotakatos (21 days ago)
Still can't decide if I prefer this one or SH2 but SH3 is certainly underappreciated. SH2 is far more relateable thanks to the different real world problems tormenting the characters, and I think that that's why people love it so much. But SH3 is fantastic in so many other ways - and it's possibly the best-looking game from that entire generation.

Ahhh Silent Hill. My best horror game. The atmosphere is creepy... and the background sound. Stories are great. Love the secret and easter egg the game had. Played SH2 and 3, never finished SH4 tho due to corrupted data.... I also love SH Homecoming. The combat differ and dodging. Tho just hope the monster doesnt include nurse or Pyramid head... was hoping they made new design cause the monster are originally made for James of SH2... the town is just the neighbour town of SilentHill and it just mean that the curse can spread to near area. Well not really curse, more like evil entity. As known most Silent Hill area and the surrounding near them are the ancient burial of Native American Indian massacre and the death of prisioner and all the bad stuff happening, causing the evil to form and the idea of creating new gods or entity. The bosses of Homecoming is great and have their own intepretation of its form. Not much on small monster... And also, I always love Silent Hill for multiple ending, and the UFO ending. For the movie, first one is great. 2nd movie is a bit trash... its almost like game while the first one have more real and story tho differ from game....
Its a shame Silent Hills P.T never got to be released, that game would have kicked ass! But maybe there will be a new Silent Hill game in the next few years, you never know ^^

I don't like first person games either. Though I badly wanted another Silent Hill game. I could barely stand the first person in Resident Evil 7. 3rd person is always better. Somehow I just always liked actually seeing the player character on screen.
Monster S (13 days ago)
I'm kinda happy because I wouldn't want silent hill to be a first person game
MysteryGhostGamer (3 months ago)
Blame the team that was behind it because one of the reasons it wasn't finished was creative differences. Most likely more on Del Torro's part. Also blame Hideo Kojima, he owns the franchise but if another game has higher sales than Silent Hill had, than he drops the game he announced to come out. I wanna stand outside the Konami offices with an angry mob carrying torches, pitchforks and signs/posters about Silent Hill. Metal Gear Solid comes before Silent Hill. Never liked MGS. And this is one of the reasons why.

i think now is the time for a true remake of the first one. I really loved it but the graphic didnt really aged well, SH2-3-4 are still looking incredibly good.
DieHardjagged (7 months ago)
Well since Konami seems to see that Spin off game on the Wii as a "remaster".. we will most likely NEVER see a proper remaster, until a fan steps up and does it himself.

I thumb it down because he hardly spoke about SH3 but spoke more about that demo game PT
lmfao you spent all that time on the original games and just skipped the games between 4 and pt..
