by all means please do. I want a ground breaking Silent Hill game that doesn't look dated and it's free of technical issues. Hire some other capable developer.

and actually hand it to a dev that understands what Silent Hill was all about not the tripe they've spewed onto in recent iterations!

It's a shame they stopped making Silent Hill games after 3...

Fuck you man, 4 was my personal favorite. Also Downpour wasn't bad, but Origins and Homecoming were fucking awful.

I think it would be awesome if the Japanese took Silent Hill back, and returned it to it's former glory!

Yea it whould be since the survivle horror genra is going extinct

Yep, its a shame :(

The only games in recent times I've played that could be classed as true survival horrors (on consoles) are the Saw games. We need classic Resident Evil and Silent Hill back :)

Awesome if they used the engine for silent hill.

Judging from the GZ video they could definitely make a pretty awesome horror game with that lighting and weather.

i think Konami needs to do one more Silent Hill game for this gen to redeem themselves.

Just rename Konami to Kojima already....it would be better for the company

I would love for the team siren developers responsible for the forbidden siren series to handle this game
Paballo  +   592d ago
oh yes and a open world survival horror game could do wonders if handled by a capable developer.
IDEAS
1.)imagine having to survive and find your way through an open world silent hill for the very first time.
2.)Not only that but the player will meet NPCs alone the way where he will have to decide to form alliances or leave them be as they could just be dead weight.
3.)A moral system of sorts where you may sacrifice your Allies to survive when in tight situations.
4.)player will have to feed character to survive,find shelter,warmth and keep their sanity meter stable.heck human to human interaction as allies is also necessary to keep character stable.
5.)a next gen health system where you will have to stitch your wounds,cuts, with the first Aid in real time and a possibility of bleeding to death.
6.)night and day cycle with day cycle becoming less and night becoming longer as you progress in the game.
7.)inventory system where you may have to make items or weapons.Can be used to progress in the game...
I feel that these are some of key ideas they could u to make great game.whats being lacking in the last silent hills is that they lacked psychological horror,had cheap scares and was more action orientated and lack of true silent hill feeling

Silent Hill is dead.

It's what they've needed to do long ago. It's a waste to develop an engine for a single game or series and the Silent Hill series, despite its other flaws, could only benefit from a solid engine.

I'm not saying they should whore it out like the UE3 by any means, but it can only help.

Silent Hill Remake.....that is all.
