The Silent Hill Retrospective: Shattered Memories

Shattered Memories opens with a perfect family moment captured on VHS. A young girl proclaims undying love for her father, before the tape stops, rewinds, and replays the scene again. The repetition continues until that warm feeling in your...

Fans have recreated the P.T./Silent Hills teaser in a real-life video. Shooting in live-action and adding the sounds and score from the actual demo, this trailer does a fantastic job of emulating the disquieting uneasiness of the origi...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Origins

Silent Hill: Origins opened with an outsider saving a little girl from a house fire. But when you look back on its place in the series, it meant so much more than a simple rescue. Travis Grady had problems of his own, but they meant very li...

Norman Reedus says Silent Hills still 'needs to happen'

If you're still salty over the cancellation of Silent Hills, you are not alone. Norman Reedus - who's likeness was used in the (terrifying) Silent Hills interactive teaser P.T. -- is still "super bummed" about the whole thing, but recently ...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: The Room

What makes the difference between houses and homes? Is it the space itself or the people inhabiting them? Is it down to the memories we create for ourselves or the aged familiarity of the spaces around us? And if a room is indifferent to ou...

Silent Hills was going to be similar to The Last of Us

Oh hey, it's that time again where we get to learn why Silent Hills would have been the perfect best game ever if it had not been cancelled. Hooray for more quotes about this cancelled game. So, according to Guillermo Del Toro, there w...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Silent Hill 3

Silent Hill 3 is a mean-spirited game, but then that was always the point. In order to value her future, Heather Mason is dragged, kicking and screaming, through the muck and mire of her past. Yes, she’s given the tools to fight back,...

New Silent Hill announced, it's a slot machine

Remember that hot new Castlevania pachinko game featuring "erotic violence?" Well, I'm guessing the reception was so positive that Konami decided to announce a new Silent Hill slot machine. Hurray! Just what we have been asking f...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Silent Hill 2

It started with a worried look in mirror dimly lit. For Silent Hill 2, this was a statement of intent; a progression in not only hardware, but also in narrative. Out went the B-movie horror about gods and the occult, and in its place was so...

Horror and secrecy need to be better bedfellows

Horror games, as much as I love them, have a serious problem right now.   In the modern-day media maelstrom, almost every scare, monster, and plot twist is given away or hinted at before a game is released. Of course, us writers are no...

In a better world, these games exist

Silent Hills was a dream game. Specifically, it was my dream game. If you asked me before P.T. crept onto the PSN servers what series I'd most like to see rejuvenated in a bold new way, I would have probably told you Silent Hill. If you ask...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Silent Hill

Western horror, Eastern eyes. That was what made Silent Hill memorable for a generation. It was visceral and relentless, oppressive and paranoid, and underlined with a tragic tale that hadn’t been seen on the normally escapist PlaySta...

Is Allison Road the spiritual successor to P.T.?

Though Konami wants to "scorch the earth" and deny that P.T. was possibly the best game reveal in the history of forever (do I still sound bitter?), there are some determined to keep the dream -- or nightmare -- alive. Christian Kesler bega...
