Joe Yang: "Assuming that Silent Hills really is under serious onsideration as an episodic story, I'm intrigued about the reasoning that led to such a decision. From a cynical point of view, it's an easy cash-grab on the Silent Hill franchise. The critical and fan-favorite might of the older Silent Hill games firmly roots the series as a horror king of cash-grabs, just behind Resident Evil.
But, if we take money out of the equation, the idea of an episodic Silent Hill is quite interesting: Silent Hill has always been an objective, fearsome enemy. The town is vile and vicious, but it's never waxed philosophical. Like the Dionaea House, it lures its victims in and never lets them out. It's a force of nature."
