Why the Silent Hill franchise boasts one of the greatest videogame heroes of all time

PSU.com writes:

"Silent Hill 2 is often revered as one of the most influential horror games of all time, and more importantly, one of gaming’s most polished offerings in terms of storytelling. Yes, it plays like your rudimentary third-person adventure game, and its iffy combat leaves a bit to be desired; however, the guts and guns belie the stunning emotional weight of its narrative, of protagonist James Sunderland’s compelling journey in the perpetually-foggy nightmare of the iconic, cursed town."

SH2 was awesome. How James was confused the whole game, and Maria shows p, and how the little girl acts, it was the perfect Horror game

Silent Hill 2 was the first SH game i played and no other SH games have ever been able to live up to it for me. I remember reading theories about what the endings mean for weeks after playing it. ...I even downloaded the soundtrack.

Epic game is epic.

I honestly thought Silent Hlll 3 was just as good as 2.

One of the best games ever made in my opinion.
It touched on so many topics and different emotions such as molestation, suicide, love, loss, depression and even hope and glimpses of happiness. It's a game that's stuck with me since the very first time I played it in 2001 when I was 13 years old. There are so many tiny details and meanings placed in the game by the developers. I just love how the creatures all have a meaning behind them and their appearence. It's a shame we don't get more horror games like this anymore it was truly something that had never been done before story wise.

I remember that for literally weeks after beating it, I had crazy, hellish nightmares about all of those topics you just mentioned. No other game, movie, or any form of media whatsoever has ever been able to do that to me since.

The moment when James realises the reason for Pyramid head when he is down on his knees was nothing short of incredible. That was certainly one of the best moments in the series for me. What he says is just so... Epic I guess.
