Silent Hill producer calls out fans over Book of Memories


Tells the community, 'It really is just you.'

As we've discussed before, Silent Hill's fanbase is currently afflicted by an irrationally emotional hatred of Silent Hill: Book of Memories, the handheld spin-off developed by WayForward. Series producer Tomm Hulett has become the scapegoat for the community, blamed for everything bad that's ever happened. This week, he bit back. 

Over on his official blog, Hulett posted an image of Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Theatrhythm, and Persona 4 Arena. It was accompanied by the text, "Look around, Silent Hill fans. It really is just you." The message, of course, was that spin-offs happen all the time, and can be radically different from the main series, yet only the Silent Hill fanbase is flying into a tantrum over it. 

Man's got a point. 

Fans being mad at the idea of a spin-off spinning off from something is still spectacular to me. I understand the fanbase feels burned -- I also love Silent Hill and lament the series' fall from grace -- but using this as your sacrificial lamb is just ... kind of pitiful. It's not like it's a main entry in the series, and it's not like anybody knows how good it is yet. It's just ... different. 

Tomm's pretty much on the money here. The fans are being ridiculous.
