Hideo Kojima is a perfect match for the Silent Hill series. We take a look at his horror resume.
Kojima is a genius
The Sorrow boss battle in MGS3 does give me goosebumps, Love it. I have faith in Kojima! I believe this game can benchmark horror, lets hope.
alright, everybody line up to kiss kojimas ass.
I'll pull down his pants and french kiss it if there is a line for that.
some people call it gross. I call it passion...
Some people (you) may call it passion... I'm sure Kojima would call... the cops.
Ok, thanks for being our A** Kissing leader :)
IDK about Kojima. He's had some decent horror experiences...Especially in Metal Gear. But where most of the "Horror Genius" from Silent Hills, will be coming from Del Toro. That guy knows his horror... He takes most of his inspiration from HP Lovecraft. If Del Toro got into Horror game development as a side aspiration...That would be cool. Especially after how good "The Strain" (TV Series based on Del Toro novel) is doing.
Kojima's the master of breaking the 4th wall, that's going to play a role,with this game, so he's going to mess with your mind, just like psycho mantis in mgs1 So in conjunction with del toro, this game could be really special for the genre...
Del Toro is great when it comes to visuals and story, but I found his movies to be lacking the horror feeling. In a team I think Kojima and Del Toro will make a masterpiece. In the trailer they showed they're able to. Instead of using visuals and jump scares like most games do, they rely on sounds and let your brain imagine things rather than see them. I love that.
P.T. was REALLY scary but the final game shouldn't have puzzles that make no sense like the final puzzle in P.T. It really slowed the momentum of the teaser quite a bit IMHO.
He said he wanted to people to band together to figure out the puzzle to discover Silent Hills together. I really doubt the full game will have puzzles that ridiculous. Although it would be pretty crazy to see everyone go at it on gaming sites.
Yeah I haven't played PT myself, but I had 3 different people say they loved it in the beginning then got just frustrated with it in the end. My one friend agreed with your statement in saying the final puzzle is just random with not reason. I hope the final game isn't like that.
It was random just to get people communicating I think. Otherwise during that random would just be stupid haha.
There are several clues spread throughout the game that reveal what you are supposed to do, or at least hint at it. In the end, the solution makes sense. If you want that damn phone to ring, you're going to want it to be able to hear you when you answer it (don't forget how Kojima likes to play, think Psycho Mantis)... Then it's just a matter of exploring and patience (especially patience) to get the rest of it. I'm glad to see a game that makes you work, especially in teams, to solve it. Too many games are dumbed down in difficulty these days, and most hold your hand through way too much. There is very little exploration left, it's like being guided down a path, like an amusement park ride or something. Games like this return to the old style of actually challenging you. The answer was so subtly hidden, many made it to the SH teaser within hours, but nobody knew exactly how for a few days.
How can you say that....we haven't played the game yet Jeez
Kojima is a genius clearly. But why is everyone completely overlooking Del Toro's involvement? Obviously he contributed to the spookiness. The guy made the Devil's Backbone for godsakes.
No he's not man.
Will it have hour long cutscenes?
P.T. had a minute or so if you managed to beat it, so I doubt it.
P.T. made me smile. After I dropped my controller, jumped out of my chair, and crapped my pants simultaneously, of course.
Hey, how about getting the game made, played & reviewed before everybody brands Kojima/Del Toro the new masters of video-gaming horror, huh?
I kind of agree. but have you played the teaser? oh man.
Na, unfortunately, don't have my PS4 yet. But I have watched a few YouTube playthroughs and Yeah, I Know, watching apposed to actually playing (experiencing) the teaser demo won't even justify the terror not even by half. But at the end of the demo, there's a disclaimer stating that the demo in No Way will represents the actual & final game. Besides, I just find it really hard to imagine a Silent Hills horror game in "first person view." Then again this Will be Kojima/Del Toro's Silent Hills. We'll soon learn later on further in development. The demo it's self is F***king magic, I hope the PSN store won't pull it! EVER!!
yeah bro, its intense. I came home one night, no one was home. I was like "hmm let me see what the 'teaser' is". (had it downloaded before I left home a couple days prior). I started the damn thing, shat myself, turned my PS4 off, put family guy on to distract me, grabbed a baseball bat and sat there... lol
I don't know if we should be putting Kojima on top of the pedestal of horror games just yet, but I can say one thing.... At least he won't sell out. His games are quality and he won't release them until he feels like his vision was achieved. Can't say that about many others
straight out of your nightmares. I swear
I want to play this on morpheus.
