At the Eurogamer Expo, Hideo Kojima said something that made all my dreams come true at once -- Konami's president had asked him to make a Silent Hill game. His response, while not exactly the most promising, was receptive enough to excite me. 

"In the past I’ve mentioned Silent Hill in interviews, and as a result of that the president of Konami rung me up and said he’d like me to make the next Silent Hill," stated the mad developer. "Honestly, I’m kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to horror movies, so I’m not confident I can do it. At the same time, there’s a certain type of horror that only people who are scared of can create, so maybe it’s something I can do.

"That said, I think Silent Hill has a certain atmosphere. I think it has to continue, and I’d love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the Fox Engine, then I’d love to participate in that respect."

If this develops into something more, I cannot begin to describe how thrilled I'll be. Kojima's insanity pulling Silent Hill's strings is just ... just glorious in my mind. If anybody can bring psychological horror back to the series, it's gotta be that man.
