Re: Is silent hill 3 the worst game in the series?

I also wouldn't base the game's value within the series on it's story alone. For me personally, SH2 and 4 have the best stories in the series, yet SH2 became dull to play for me after seeing everything a few times (or at least compared to SH3 anyway) and SH4 was always a chore to play to begin with,...

Re: Is silent hill 3 the worst game in the series?

Well, I've met very very few Silent Hill fans who don't like 3. Most of the fans I talk to seem to love 3. While 2 still seems to widely be considered the best in the series, I think enough people consider 3 the best in the series that it's a pretty strong second place. For good reasons too, many o...

Re: Was Heather impersonating Alessa?

Thank you for all of your answers. So, is it possible that Alessa may have been speaking through Heather? The manner in which she spoke did, in my opinion suggest that something more was occurring. Not likely, since Heather is Alessa. As others have already pointed out, she merely made an improv-pe...

Re: Was Heather impersonating Alessa?

That's like asking if she was impersonating herself (if you think about it the right way :P ). I've always thought Heather was trying to manipulate Claudia. I would say manipulation is in her genes considering Alessa and Dahlia. :) Besides, "Alessa" never seems to come out of Heather in su...

Re: Why are the victims of Walter hostile to Henry?

Would it not be possible to assume that Henry, upon dying by anything other maybe the last boss, just wakes up in his room like when you die in any other dream and that the ghosts are not controlled by anything but their new profound all encompassing anger/hate (going off of typical "vengeful s...

Re: Cynthia Ghost(Silent Hill 4)Reversed! MUST HEAR!!

I wouldn't really say it is her last moments considering you see her last moments and are there with her. The crying, and the fact it's reversed in the game, is most likely just for effect. None of the other ghosts have any hints that say anything about their last moments beyond how they died/ may h...

Re: Did innovations in combat mechanics enhance your experie

I see nothing wrong with change and I do not actually even hate the game, but I can say the worst aspect of it is doing all of that fighting again (on repeat playthroughs) due to how dull it is for reasons I and many others have stated already. It seems as if people do not like it for how lackluster...

Re: Did innovations in combat mechanics enhance your experie

SH2 hard? I don't see how. Monsters are incredibly slow and easily dodged in that game. If for some reason you need to kill them you're provided a shitload of ammo to mow them down. The only monster that presents a challenge in that game is the Abstract Daddy. SH2 hard on HARD, dude. Also, you can ...

Re: Did innovations in combat mechanics enhance your experie

Because the game actually provides a sense of challenge the other games lack since you could mow down anything in your way with the amount of ammo you had. Melee combat felt natural instead of stiff. They complain anytime the game pushes some sort of challenge on them. The only exception to this be...

Re: Alternative Silent Hill 3...

Everything sounds ok besides making Heather a Goth. Not every teen goes through a phase like that, and I do not think even her origins would have that kind of bearing on her. She is already portrayed pretty realistically as a tomboyish regular teenage girl for the most part, and making her Goth woul...

Re: Did innovations in combat mechanics enhance your experie

Smogs, Siams, Needlers, and sometimes Schisms are what I shoot. None of these enemies are very abundant and you have a really low cap on the ammo you can carry, so it's basically wisest to just shoot the enemies I named off anyway to save time and irritation. The knife owns everything else, and the ...

Re: SH Shattered Memories Blood & Rust Mod for Dolphin Emula

Looks pretty decent. I know blood and rust is pretty played out within Silent Hill, but Shattered Memories' tension and eeriness seems as if it would have been higher with just a simple switch from ice to classic blood and rust. Seems like it would have been even more a pain in the ass trying to fin...

Re: What really happened in the opening sequence?

Well, Alessa is trying to use the crest of annihilation to kill herself and wipe away the town, which would kill Harry... so you could say she was indirectly trying to kill him. But it was more about killing herself. Well yeah, I wasn't saying she was actively trying NOT to kill him, was just point...

Re: What really happened in the opening sequence?

Alessa wasn't trying to kill Harry. I can't even remember how much control she actually has over Otherworld shifts and such in the first game (considering I am pretty sure the shifts follow her sleep cycles. It has been awhile and I am sure someone will clarify if I am mis-remembering or forgetting ...

Re: Is silent hill 3 the worst game in the series?

I agree. The plot needed some work, but at the same time I loved the characters in SH3. The combat was the best overall in comparison to the rest of the series in my opinion, and as you said, the soundtrack and environments are perfect. I loved the overall atmosphere of the game. That and the charac...

Re: Is silent hill 3 the worst game in the series?

I would say that the year one started playing the series and order in which they played them doesn't matter when it comes to their opinion of SH3. There are legitimate reasons not to like the game or flaws within it that may or may not hinder a person's ability to enjoy it or take it seriously. It's...

Re: Is silent hill 3 the worst game in the series?

It depends on how you look at it. On one hand, the story is terrible and it plays like an action game. Claudia is a boring villain, Vincent is useless(except for a couple of decent lines) and the final boss is just...Meh. Throw in some truly over the top moments and Silent Hill 3 starts getting a b...

Re: Re-write Revelation!

Not everyone takes entertainment (even if passionate about it) so seriously as to get overly upset over a bad film adaptation, so I wouldn't assume everyone would feel the same no matter how much they love a game.

Re: Homecoming: Backtracking before Amnion?

The dagger destroys everything in the game and is the weapon to go to in any circumstance. I'm not sure how I forgot about it (it has been awhile I guess), but it seems you figured it out and beat it anyway. Congrats! :)

Re: To be honest I'm tired of this game

I liked the game it's my least played SH title. The gameplay really does hold it back, and the story feels incomplete like the first title did.
I think it's pretty understandable if you just don't like the game. It is a bit of a chore.
