Purist fans are still furious at the idea of Silent Hill: Book of Memories existing in the same universe as them, and the backlash to this trailer -- released during last week's E3 madness -- is doing nothing but stoke the fires of outrage. Still, you know what they say about haters.
As I said last week, I played the game and had a good time. I have trust in WayForward and expect a good game. I just wish people could understand that a game series spinning off into one genre doesn't automatically destroy the previous games they enjoyed. Silent Hill 2 is still going to be here, and I doubt Book of Memories will become the official future of the franchise. Horror will not die with this game.
I certainly get being concerned, and I think Konami did a terrible job communicating with consumers before this game was properly revealed, but damn, the pure venom at this stage has become a little crazy.
