Silent Hill looked all but dead in the past few years, but it could be on its way to a comeback of epic proportions. Gamefocus.ca takes a look at the situation.
I hope so... I really freaking hope so. SH being developed by Hideo Kojima would be amazing.
personally a game like that doesn't really fit his character of sorts. what silent hill needs is team silent. Akira Yamaoka said he would come back if konami asked and im sure the rest would too. silent hill is coming up on its 15th anniversary soon and it would be perfect to bring them back for old times sake. it would be sorta like project sora, bring a collective group of people to create 1 game. because right now silent hill is on its last leg.
He said that he's a scaredy cat.
Even though fixed camera angles may be frowned upon by much this gen, I do miss it a lot and found it to be a big factor that added much horror and a bit claustrophobia to the survival horror ganre. If there's anyone who has the talent to bring back the fixed camera angles from the past and implement it into modern gaming design it would be kojima.
As awesome as it would be for Team Silent to make a triumphant return, people need to realize that it's just not going to happen. They've moved on with their lives, are focusing on different projects, and they don't want to come back, or they would have done it already. Besides, even if they did come back and make a game, that's not an automatic guarantee that it will be any good. Some people hold Silent Hill games to an almost unattainable standard. And I like the older titles just as much as the next fan.
Kojima already said he wouldn't develop it, he would just lend the technology of the Fox Engine. He isn't a horror game afficionado, and he's way too busy with his own projects.
I do not care about the games anymore but Silent Hill 2 The Movie is my most anticipated movie of the decade. First time where the game is actually sh!t but the movie is great.
I personally think the movie looks dreadful, ill watch it, I like John Snow so ill watch just for him It does look pretty bad though
"but Silent Hill 2 The Movie is my most anticipated movie of the decade. " Just stop.........
"Now, while Resident Evil has changed its formula quite a bit over the years, the games remained extremely well made and gripping for the most part." Stopped reading after this...
No. They've been saying this for years. Every new game has apparently 'gone back to it's roots' and 'returned the series to it's former glory' Reminds me of how every year Pro Evo supposedly 'has a brand new engine'. Funny how that's another Konami title.
I looked at your response and then at your avatar. I lol'd XD
Did you read the article? Kojima developing a SH game with MGS Ground Zeroes' engine and high production values would definitely put it on the map.
Kojima never said he was making a Silent Hill game. he said he has expressed interest. stop spreading misinformation.
silent hill on fox engine + next gen= :)
please come back!
RivetCityGhoul: I said WOULD definitely put it on the map. How is that spreading false info? Learn how to read.
i hope so
Unless Team Silent magically came back....No Silent Hill will never come back.
I hope Konami listening, SH will be better handle by Japanese story teller and development team.
Book of Memories' demo was f*****g awful. Cheesy character options and just poor overall. I wish this series didn't decline.
SH are my fave.. I love them all from 1 to 9.
I hope so. SH games are unlike anything out there. And who could forget the U.F.O endings? "There was a hole here... it's gone now"
I'm not buying a Silent Hill game ever again, unless it gets the Yahtzee seal of approval. Once he praises a new Silent Hill game, you know that you have a winner.
Consoles kill every genre eventually to add action.
You mean developers like Capcom kill genres. Since when was resident evil not supposed to be scary? Oh let me see... Ever since 5...
5, serious? I love Resident Evil but RE has never ONCE been scary. Now if you correct your statement to when was RE not suppose to be the B-horror film of gaming then yes, I would agree with you. RE 1 2 3 weren't scary but they acted like they tried to be (like a bhorror movie) 4 was taking itself to seriesous and now we are here.
I hope so... but I know that image on N4G for this article is freaky. Nice.
A Silent Hill game that uses Fox Engine and directed by Hideo Kojima, or at least produced in collaboration with Kojima Productions would be an epic comeback for the series. Make it happen, Konami.
i hope so, silent hill and resident evil are some of my best games.
I don't think so... it's gone just like Resident Evil has.
they may be different but to me there still fun. And thats what playing games is about, times change.
I recently played Silent Hill Downpour and I thought it was a very good game. The character modeling wasn't the best but the game itself was fun to play. I actually had to play it with my friend because I could never go anywhere with the background music playing. I think I got freaked out the most when we did the Telltale Heart side quest and I gave my friend the controller and told him to do the rest of it XD
The Telltale Heart was one of the freakiest side missions, right next to the side quest with the record player.
It would be great if it did make a comeback.
Even if someone like Kojima was to help create the next Silent Hill, I don't know if it could be saved. The biggest mistake you can make with horror games or films is to do too much. Silent Hill has 8 installments. I just think there needs to be a point where you say 'Stop'.
Hideo kojima = means Depth story ! Yes DO IT !
comeback? i think their all still more brilliant, loved the new one, but that's just my opinion lol.
Great take on the series' direction. Not sure I like the direction, even for a spin-off, though the graphics look nice. I'm interested tro see what Hideo would do for the series. His entry in the Castlevania series was, I hear, much overlooked.
Hideo Kojima could actually do this, Remember that Psycho Mantis scene from MGS1? How Mind fecked you were? I think he would explode with ideas for Silent Hill. Afterall Resident Evil isn't Scary anymore.. so.. I'm all for it!
PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEE YESSSSSSSS!!! btw actually i enjoy Homecoming and Downpour , but pleaseeeeee Kojima take the franchise back to his roots!!!
