Can Alan Wake Out-Scare Silent Hill?

While playing through Alan Wake, Bitmob found themselves constantly comparing it to fellow horror-genre game Silent Hill, and they weren't sure why at first. They look nothing alike. One's Western-developed while the other was born in Japan. Alan Wake more resembles a psychological thriller mini-series you might see on TV while Silent Hill has sick, monstrous freaks that only the most demented minds could dream up.

Is it the small-town setting? The constant fog? The flashlights? Well...yes, but it's a bit more complicated than that.

The story is too old to be commented.

"It's not really fair to compare the two games, as they truly are very different experiences that will leave you with totally different emotions. But if you're a Silent Hill fan who appreciates the series for more than its grotesque masses of flesh, sexy (?) undead nurses, and demon babies -- if you truly understand what makes Silent Hill stick with you long after you leave it -- then you understand why Alan Wake is this summer's must-play horror adventure. Don't miss it -- and look for my full review in the next issue of EGM."

Um...first of all, which Silent Hill? And second of all, it's an action game that takes place at night, not a survival horror game just because it's dark.
