Began to play a week ago Homecoming ,and though it's kinda buggy in parts, I feel it's ok. Though this is the first SH I play. Also, how's Shattered Memories?
Also, fucking needlers.

Shattered Memories was a let down for me. The story is interesting but to me it just wasn't Silent Hill. The gameplay all around also lacks. It's just run around an empty town (and I mean empty as there's nothing in it that can even kill you) then the town goes frozen, you run around a maze avoiding enemies until you reach the end, then everything goes normal and the process repeats itself till end game.

Homecoming is pretty good, but it lacks a bit in terms of subtlety. I cringed a little when Curtis informed me that HEY DID YOU NOTICE ALL THE CLOCKS ARE BROKEN AT 2:09???

That said, the visual and auditory presentation are topnotch, and the writing's not terrible either. Not my favorite game in the series, but a worthy addition, I think.

Also Alex is totally a gay dude in denial.

As for Shattered memories: it's probably my favorite in the series, right up there with 3. The exploration sections were very moody and atmospheric, and very well designed, the flashlight and phone mechanics worked great, and I think the removal of the combat element was a great move. The chase sequences were pants-shitting scary, if occasionally frustrating; the sense of disorientation and confusion you feel is a perfect emulation of what Harry would be experiencing.

And the writing? Best in the series, hands-down, IMO.

There were a few things that could be improved - more monster variety, less of a binary relationship between exploration and chase sequences - and it's certainly a different animal than the rest of the series, but the combined package works incredibly well.

I still haven't played Homecoming. Or 0, for that matter. I think the fact that the original team didn't have a hand in them and the lukewarm reception killed most of my motivation to play them. This isn't to say I won't pick them up ever--it's just that nothing about them has really sparked my interest.

Shattered Memories, on the other hand, sounds pretty neat, even without the original team on board. The most common complaint I've heard about it is that, in the end, it still isn't very Silent Hill-y, but almost all of those statements usually attach a "But it's still pretty good" at the end. I'll probably play it when I've finished most of the games currently on my plate.

I'm going to wax homosexual a moment and shine up my fanboy card.

I highly recommend you play the first three games. If you can excuse the original Silent Hill's PS1 era graphics. Later editions, for lack of a more kind way of saying it, take the series in directions that just lack the unique mojo that made the originals good. They're survival horror games in the wake of that 1, 2 and 3 established... but they don't fill their shoes.

As far as games go, I won't say these newer Silent Hill games are bad *survival horror* games. They just aren't what I'm looking for in an oldschool, true blue Silent Hill game. Ever since the feature movie took such liberties with the metaplot, the things changed or modified have had such an effect on the flavor of the world and.. in my opinion, are kind of detrimental to the established atmosphere.

But seriously. Play the original trilogy. Nothing but gold, man.

Yes, all around gameplay. As in the parts where the game were also supposed to be scary, which it didn't have at all.

I don't see the problem with that. Unless you're referring to how it leads them to believe that a good story renders any complaints about the other aspects of the game irrelevant--in which case, yeah, that's always annoying.

One thing to remember for Homecoming is to make loads of saves, especially before the Mercer House puzzles turn up. It's really easy to get stuck at an impassable glitch in this game, the house notoriously so.

Shattered Memories is probably the only Silent Hill I couldn't bear to finish. It's not a Silent Hill, not really. Theres no tension outside the nightmare realm, its ugly as sin, and the nightmare sequences themselves are awful--just run around getting lost while some stupid creatures chase you. Meh. Presentation is fantastic though.

Uh. You are aware that the original Silent Hill games were successful BECAUSE the story was wonderful, and only that, right? Of course fans of the series wouldn't give two figs about the gameplay. It wasn't about the gameplay, it was about the story and the audio and visuals were just part OF that story.

You could improve the combat system. Maybe add a dodge. You could even put in a warthog and gravity hammer into the game and put in an over-the-shoulder view for firing the guns. It wouldn't improve the story much, but maybe some gamers aren't so concerned about the story and narrative as they are smashing and shooting things.

I'm pretty sure it's because they succeeded in being scary as hell. I even remember back around pre-4's release date there was a lot of discussion going on about how the game might be disappointing because they were ditching the flash light so the game wouldn't be scary. I didn't see much discussion on the story at all. Not until the games started being developed by western developers. Also what you're saying is a bit of a contradiction because I see many people complain about the cult story and people wish the series would get away from it.

I feel like the best Silent Hill game is 2 because it incorporates everything you think Silent Hill would be in the one game. (If that doesn't make sense, I'm sorry.) I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WANTING TO PLAY SILENT HILL

My favorite is 4, but it doesn't play strictly like a Silent Hill game. (no UFO ending? come on!) I somehow fell in love with the characters, including those that fall under the love to hate category. EILEEN GALVIN
Henry's blandness really caught me off guard. I thought I would hate him for it, but somehow it helps me see him as more realistic in all of the events that happen to him. COMPARED TO JAMES
I killed my wife with a pillow but seeing crazy ass monsters doesn't make me rage in the slightest, I just wanna talk my way out of my problems.

As for the gameplay, I feel the reason SH fans like the story and don't complain about the gameplay is that the game was built specifically FOR THE STORY. The creators made the gameplay around suspense and not how accurate you could shoot a gun or how big of an explosion you can make.

I love Silent Hill with a passion that can only be described as "boom de yada, boom de yada." I've heartily enjoyed all of the games Except I haven't played Homecoming yet. I want to. I WILL SOME DAY. and I look forward to the next installment with GREAT ANTICIPATION. That said, I think there are three primary factors that determine whether or not something is "Silent Hill," and a game's gotta hit at least 2/3 to be good.

1) A protagonist who just can't deal with pain/loss: we've got James with Mary, Heather with Harry, Walter with his parents, Travis with HIS parents, Alex with Josh, and Cheryl with Harry. (especially if SM is the true canon and SH1 is a delusion) The human pain that drives Silent Hill's various plots is some powerful, POWERFUL stuff.
2) Monsters and obstacles of a highly symbolic nature: this needs no explanation. As far as I'm concerned, every game so far has hit this particular nail on the fucking head. It's not always done as smoothly as it was in SH2 (Two-Backs of Origins, I'm looking at you...), but no matter what the monsters are always there for a reason.
3) GODDAMN TERRIFYING SHIT: The cat in the locker. SH2 in its entirety. "Monsters? They looked like monsters to you?" Andrew DeSalvo's floating head. The Artaud Theater. CHASE SEQUENCES. This series. THIS FUCKING SERIES.

Honorable mentions go to fog, rust, flashlights, SEX EVERYWHERE, broken locks, and on a more serious note, DAT MUSIC.

it's a bit of column A, a bit of column B. Yeah, the cult story is a bit hokey (although 3 handled it pretty well), but that's only one aspect of the story. The greater part of the story, about Cheryl and Alessa, is still pretty awesome, and the telling of that story is what MADE SH1 scary as hell (in large part).

I mean, yeah,. I roll my eyes when Dahlia says that it was 'foretold by Gyromancy'. You've got to hold it to the standards of the time, though.

Oh hai, meet another game from the same year. Go on, compare stories, I'll wait.

So yeah, what makes Silent Hill is, putting aside the UFO endings, the pants-shitting atmosphere. Not the plot, not the writing, not the gameplay, the ATMOSPHERE. The fog, the creepy metaphorical monsters, the music, all that shit.

No.86337

>the telling of that story is what MADE SH1 scary as hell (in large part)

I don't really think so. I'll agree on it for SH2 because there was so much tie in with the main character that it wouldn't have been what it was without the story. Though to me what made SH1 so scary was all the freaky shit that went on in that game. Those lockers, the freaky ass monsters, the music and ambiance. Though I still think the story is "typical crazy cult" done right.

Also for the record I'm not saying that SH needs to turn into Resident Evil 4/5 or Gears of War. I don't need to go into the town guns blazing with rocket launchers and chains saws. I just want the developers focus on freaking me the fuck out instead of thinking up a story mostly composed of plot twists and references. If you're going to tie in the two together, that's great and I agree it can make the game a lot better. But if all people want is a story with plot twists and references, why even ask for a game? Why not just a graphic novel or something?

Movie is just dumb. They took some key motifs from the Silent Hill series and slapped them onto another script, and it shows. It's probably as good as a videogame movie gets, but as part of the franchise it blows. It's a 2000s horror movie by the book.

I can respect that, and I wouldn't lynch you. Admittedly, the movie did have some rather interesting aesthetics.
That said, there's something I have to get off my chest.

"So this Harry Mason guy runs off to search for his daughter in a nightmare town even though he's scared out of his mind? Fuck that, let's make him a woman. We can't have a MAN acting scared or vulnerable. Besides, only WOMEN really love their children, and our film should reflect this universal truth. On that note, let's make the girl's biological mother a good person. If we introduced a purely negative maternal figure, that might be controversial. Speaking of controversy, rather than denouncing religious dogma in general, why don't we just dump on Christianity? That's a popular, acceptable target now, right? But wait! Since Harry's character is now female, we don't have any prominent male characters! Time to let Sean Bean wander around for half the movie and tell us things we already know! And Pyramid Head. We need Pyramid Head and the big-tittied nurses because everyone knows about them. Consistency of symbolism means NOTHING as long as you have something the fanboys love, right?"

What I look for in a Silent Hill game:

1.) Is the protagonist a flawed person? (The father, the amnesiac, the victim, the non-entity.)
2.) Does the story take place in or around the town of Silent Hill, a sleepy coastal community plagued in the past by cults and the sale of White Claudia?
3.) Forget if the monsters look intimidating or scary; do they somehow tie into the main character or supporting characters in some fashion?
4.) Do we learn about supporting characters and their relationship with the town? If any.
5.) Do we get to wander the town and see how it's being interpreted by the individual?
6.) Are we dreaming? Are we awake? Is it magic, or drugs?
7.) Do the puzzles relate to the main character and their individuality in some fashion? Could they? Are they subtle and clever?
8.) Is there hidden stuff to uncover and consider? In one room of the Apartment Complex of Silent Hill 2 is a painting of James and Mary. The front of the model of the man who is watching the broken TV is James. If you look into the rusty mortuary drawer, James will mention he denies seeing anything and will respond 'there's nothing there' if you pursue examination further.
9.) Are the scares relevant to the plot, or the result of monsters going BOOGEDY BOOGEDY BOO and being outwardly gruesome?

Anyone have any theories regarding the next game in the series? I read somewhere that the name Murphy Pendleton is a reference to either One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest or Catch 22, I can't remember which. That's all I got at the moment.

I'm not particularly unsettled by Akira Yamaoka's absence. Yes, his music and sound work is HOLY SHIT FUCKAWESOME, but that doesn't mean Daniel Licht won't do a damn good job.

I think the new Silent Hill has potential. Potential to be good, or potential to fail. The franchise' trinity was about people and their association with the town, and by extension the cults influence on them. And their psyche's influence on the town.

If they pulled from Silent Hill 2, I'd at least like them to keep the places in mind. Has time passed? Any places torn down or replaced? The last time we could really explore the place, it had a Laserdisk store and the price of gas at the gas station pretty much said "1970s."

Ohh, good point. But wasn't the town of Silent Hill practically deserted? If I remember correctly it was usually just a fog filled derelict town, crawling with monsters and the occasional crazy person or loner drawn to the town. Since it's been abandoned the town may not have changed a all. Forgive me if I'm wrong on the previous points, I haven't played the games in awhile.

Watching anyone play survival horror games that do their job right is always hilarious. I was helping this guy over a stream get through the first game and he went into the hospital basement into the room with the glass breaking noise effects. The noise scared the fuck out of him to the point where he paused the game right away, but as soon as he unpaused it the sound went off again and he had to pause it a second time.

Here's an idea:
Maybe, just MAYBE, there ISN'T a set timeline at all.

Maybe it's just vague plot elements connecting a series of mostly atmosphere-centric horror games with an assortment of endings to each one.

Also, perhaps the reoccurring THEMES are more important than the plot elements themselves.

So I was playing Shattered Memories the other day, and came across a cutscene where the game lost its shit and froze. In the lower right corner, it said, "Loading," and I could still hear the game's music and, after a few seconds, the scream of the monsters and ice forming. But the cutscene just wouldn't load. I could still pause the cutscene and had the option of going to the main menu, which I tried, leading to a total Wii freeze-up. I had to manually turn the system off. This whole scenario happened three times. (It's the cutscene where Cybil is pushing Harry in the wheelchair, by the way.)

I'm a bit concerned because I really want to finish this game and maybe this is happening because my copy is not exactly.... "purchased." Any ideas?

"In an earlier interview I stated that this was a separate universe/canon from the PS1 original. However, I regret giving that answer; I didn’t realize the gravity of the question. Silent Hill is very unique as a series, because the games themselves are about a subjective reality. Each game has multiple endings and an argument could be made that each one of them is the "real" ending. This makes it very hard to even identify the “canonical” elements of the series as a whole. We know James went to Silent Hill looking for Mary… but we don’t know how or if he left. Not really. Shattered Memories, like the other games, deals with a subjective reality centered around the town of Silent Hill – I would say it’s just as canonical as any of the games. No, Shattered Memories doesn’t replace SH1 in the continuity. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t canonical. That, after all, is what sets Silent Hill apart from other video game series."

I'm getting just a little tired of hearing people say things like, "Team Silent didn't make it? LOLOLOL IT'S NOT SILENT HILL AND IT WILL NEVER BE SILENT HILL EVEN IF KONAMI SAYS SO." Silent Hill is so, so much bigger than one developer or one team.
Look at it this way: Tim Burton made some Batman movies. Joel Schumacher made some Batman movies. Christopher Nolan made some Batman movies. Whether you like them or not, they are undeniably Batman movies in which Batman plays a pivotal role. Also note that Bob Kane had very little to do with any of them but no one's crying foul over that despite the fact that he was the original creator. Finally, they are all "canon" in some way YES EVEN BATMAN AND ROBIN.

If you notice by the dialog of Heather and Henry, as well as some mention of the Order and drugs, Silent Hill has "always been" a little community. People came from miles around for the sights..
It's when they go back a second time that things aren't quite so right. Maybe they never totally left it, in their hearts.

Abandoned? No. In the hospital when James is there, there are typewriters. When Heather visits, there's more technological stuff about. Computers. Cameras. The town changes with the times, but whether or not this is because you're wandering the "shadow" of the town, or you're just subject to the main characters perceptions of it, is difficult if not impossible to answer.

Double postan'.
It's entirely possible that the characters are never truly walking through Silent Hill. It's possible that, as you're waltzing through the smoky mirror of the town, the spiritual side, you're -not- seeing the otherwise normal, healthy happy community and residents that do dwell in the town.

Y'know, in the interest of not having this thread dissolve further into "NUH UH" "YUH HUH" exchanges, we should agree to disagree.
Yes, Climax DID say at one point that SM was "not canon," but at a later point–as shown in the interview–they changed their minds. No, it does not displace SH1 any more than SH1 negates SM. At least, that's what I think.
On further reflection, given how little the fans in general agree on what's going on in the games themselves, it seems a little silly to argue about the games (not) being connected or (not) being canon.

In that case, TIME FOR FUNNY PICTURES
