BD writes: "There’s a reason why we still bang on about Silent Hill 2.
Almost fifteen years have passed since we first stepped into James Sunderland’s heavy footsteps and peered at that bloodstain through the fog, and we’re still obsessing over the intricacies of his journey, as though deconstructing the individual parts of this game might offer up the secrets of its oh-so-terrifying alchemy.
For many (unashamedly, myself included) Silent Hill 2 remains the crowning achievement of the Silent Hill series. Reknown for it’s hitherto unique approach to survival horror – so at odds with Resident Evil’s combat-heavy blueprint ��� it was Silent Hill 2 that picked up the legacy set by the series’ disturbing first title, and birthed one of horror gaming’s most darkly disquieting offerings.
The thing with Silent Hill 2 is, it crawls beneath your skin.
And you don’t even know it’s doing it."
