If you know me, then you'll know that seeing this video here for the new Silent Hill (Silent Hill 6? Silent Hill 8?) has made me the happiest man on the planet. I've loved Silent Hill since the very beginning, and, while there were obvious pieces of turds like Homecoming, it has remained one of my top favourite video game series ever made.
To me, horror is the greatest genre ever made. As Lovecraft says, the strongest emotion of mankind is fear. I love the heart-pulsing, the paralysis, the feeling of helplessness. Horror also breeds other strong emotions through feeling safe after a long journey through hell.
Outside of movies and books, Silent Hill was the thing that kept me obsessed with horror. If this turns out to be a great game (and who knows, it could be supremely shit), then I'll have another to add to the list.
Will Daniel Licht be a good replacement for Akira Yamaoka? Never. Will he do a good job with the soundtrack? We'll see.
Time to change my pants.
