Silent Hills and the Insanity of Kojima: A Recap and Predictions

8CN: For thsoe familiar with the works of Hideo Kojima, the circumstances surrounding the announcement of the latest Silent Hill game, which Kojima will helm in association with Guillermo Del Toro, should come as no surprise. For those less familiar with the pure insanity of Kojima, let me explain to you exactly what's happening and why you should be excited.

Hideo Kojima + Guillermo Del Toro = Mind f-ed!
Expect some really screwed up crap in Silent Hills. I had never been so anxious for a Silent Hill game before!

Silent Hills is definitely on my must have list. Hopefully it will be ready sometime in 2015.

Hopefully they stick to the first person perspective.

I know there are rumors that it will be 3rd person, but I for one can't imagine them releasing a demo thats first person, but then making the final product 3rd person. It just doesn't make sense. A demo is supposed to be a preview of what the game will be. Changing the genre from demo to final product makes no sense, and I can honestly say that I've never seen a game do that. We have, however, seen plenty of games get reboots and be changed to a different genre than the original.

Completely agree. First person camera is partly why the game freaks you out. You really feel like your in the hallway. In some ways I wish they made the player the in game character to make in feel more personal.

It's not a demo,it's a playable teaser...P.T.doesn't have anything to do with Silent Hills.Possibly they're just hinting at a vibe of how they want to present the game & to see if people prefer a 3rd or 1st person prospective.

Ok but the first person view definitely worked well. Going back to the usual Silent Hill view and mechanics would be a mistake in my opinion.
CorndogBurglar  +   261d ago
Listen to what you just said. Its a playable teaser. But it doesn't have anything to do with Silent Hills. Then please tell me exactly what its a teaser for.

Its a playable teaser for Silent Hills. That means it DOES have something to do with it.

At the end of the demo, when it says P.T. has nithing to do with Silent Hills, I took that to mean the story that we take part in won't have anything to do with the story of Silent Hills.

To say this has nothing to do with Silent Hills is ludicrous.
MARKSMAN7136  +   261d ago
Personally I'd want an option in game to switch between 1st or 3rd person view, I can't imagine anyone complaining about HAVING an option. Also everything you just said is ludicrous, SH has always been 3rd person, the story in PT is the only part you should pay attention to becuz it will be going into the final "Silent Hills" game. What we're all wondering is whether it'll be 1st or 3rd person. (if you don't get anything I'm saying go read up from Kojima's tweets and you'll get an idea.)

It doesn't matter that SH has always been 3rd person. How many times have we seen a game get a reboot and get changed from the original 3rd person or platformer view, to a first person view? It happens all the time.

Now, think back to how man game teasers or demos you've ever seen or played that ended up being a different perspective than the actual game. I've been gaming for 30 years and can't think of a single time that has happened. There's a reason for that. Demos and teasers are meant to give a glimpse of what a particular game will be like. If you make a drastic change like 3rd person to first person, then the demo was pointless because it didn't depict the actual final game.

I'm not trying to say i'm 100% right here, or to act like I have some kind of inside knowledge, but I'll be seriously surprised if the final game is not first person. I guess there's a first time for everything though.

With P.T. being one of the scariest games (well demo) on the market I have to give credit to anyone ready to play Silent Hills. The rumors of grown men screaming are true and for anyone who thinks different give it a try.
elda  +   262d ago
I thought the teaser was interesting,bizzare & startling creepy but not scary,seeing people on youtube screaming & reading people went to bed with the lights & tv on & people couldn't finish it because it was too scary is beyond me....LOL!
dericb11  +   262d ago
Who disargeed with your opinion is beyond me. Anyway when you know who snatched me up. I jumped back like what the hell is going on. If you didn't get scared at that part you better then me lol.
elda  +   261d ago
@dericb11...evidently someone that got scared by the game & doesn't understand that there are people in this world that plays these types of games & DON'T GET SCARED SH*TLESS...I did get a little startled at that part caught me of guard..lol! but the game was just bizzare to me which was a good thing & I live alone & played it several times at 4am & I was not scared..I was laughing & saying wow to myself at some of the strange events,love the radio announcer describing the murders then starts to say.."LOOK BEHIND YOU!"
