FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

In my restless dreams I see that town...

Silent hill is the scariest games ever. This is the first time I’ve played this game and I didn’t what to expect from this game. But when I got deeper and deeper, I was freaking out. What the hell were those things, I wouldn't tell if they were zombies or just another Amy lee. All I know is that I had a blast with that game.

Check this out, this game talks about a guy named, James. Who lost his wife from a deadly disease, that was three years ago. But three years later, he gets a letter saying, "Meet me at our special place." Which is silent hill and that letter came from his dead wife, Mary. So therefore he goes over there to find his wife. I don't know why but I guess its love. Yeah, so about the game it's really scary.

Why? Well when you play doom you're shooting aliens. They pop out and scare the hell out of you. It’s the same with silent hill. This times your not shooting aliens. Your shooting it and they scare the hell out of you. Even when you’re in the dark. When you’re in the dark, you start off with no flashlight; you have to find it and eventually you will find it in beginning of it. So once you find it, you start hearing noises from your radio or somewhere in the area. The creatures on the other hand look pretty scary. Then there's some written stuff in the game. When you read it, I kind of give you the chills.

So that’s the scary part. Now the characters were really insane. Why because in the game each character are connected. How by they’re past, each of them did something bad or something happened to them that were bad. It’s real freaky and it kinda gets you in the game. The storyboard on the other hand is well written. I just love it. I though it was going to suck, but in the state that there in, it works.

So the controls, well I had no problem, but the puzzles were really perplexing. I didn't get it until next six hours. I was so bad when I got the answer. I just wish they were a little easy. Sometimes it’s easy but then again it gets hard and then you get scared. So yeah there you go. In the end I love this game, not the sport. The game, game, game. You know silent hill. So if you have or have not played this game. Go ahead and turn off the lights, turn the sound real loud and get scared with silent hill. One more thing, this game ends with a twist so check it out. So enjoy and game on!
