His music was pretty good, pity he is resigning.

I didn't really like his work on the last Silent Hill (nor did I like the game itself), but Silent Hill 2 is still my all-time favorite gaming soundtrack. I listen to at least one song off of it pretty much daily.

That sucks. But in all honesty, it only marks the departure of the last remnant of the old Team Silent. The series has already been reshuffled into the hands of Western devs for a while now. For better or worse, Silent Hill is right now a completely Western franchise.

The game itself was amazing enough...

...but he did all of the music also!

Somebody needs to pick this guy up. I'm thinking Euda and his team, possibly?
