 Post subject: SH2 "Maria" sub plot game

This may sound like a really stupid question (and I apologise if this topic has already come up) but what's the point behind the "Born from a wish"/Maria bonus game in the director's cut version of Silent Hill 2?

The point of Born From A Wish is to display Maria as a semi-- sentient creation of James and Mary, and to introduce Ernest Baldwin and his failed quest to the spectators.

I always wondered how Ernest somehow evaded the monsters. They would have probably broken down his door given enough time, or the acid spitter monsters would have dissolved the door with their acid.
Ever notice how weird it is when

[spoiler]Maria opens the door Ernest is behind and no one is there? Does this mean that Ernest was a figment of Maria's imagination, who was also a figment of James's imagination? Kind of creepy once you think about it.[/spoiler]

Of course he was alive. He's dead now. He's a ghost.

He lived, then he died, and retracted into his Inner World, which was absorbed into Silent Hill's Otherworld to allow Maria and Ernest to have thought to thought communication.

Basically he's a ghost.

How did Ernest know about James though? I didn't really understand that.

I think, by being a ghost in Silent Hill he is connected to the town. Maria is connected to the town too (being created by it) and after being reminded she knows her purpose and who James is.

More gameplay, more explansation and into the mysteries of 'Maria' and expansion of the games mythology/story, more stuff to analyse, etc.

I would also say another point is to introduce the ceremonial items used in the Rebirth ending. To shed a little light on what they will be used for when you get that ending with James.
