Dead Pixels continues their second annual 13 Days of Horror by pitting two of the biggest names in the horror genre, Resident Evil and Silent Hill, against each other. Which one will come out on top?
Silent Hill. Easily.
Different kinds of horror but I will agree with you that I like the subliminal horror Silent Hill offers. Resident Evil is more of the "in your face" type of horror while Silent Hill dives more into the psyche of humans.
Resident evil was the first horror game i ever played. I loved it,still love resi apart from 4 and 5. Then i played silent hill though and the horror was taken up about 1000 notches! there for im gonna go with silent hill!
I can't compare the two (I'm judging both by their original gameplay excluding RE 4 and beyond). Resident Evil focus a lot more on survival which generated tons of raw tension for me like seeing Predator, Terminator or The Thing in cinemas a while back. Silent Hill took things way more cerebral and gave me a different type of scare generated by isolation and hopelessness. Another plus is it's easier to relate to the protagonist seeing that she/he is am average joe like you. It's like comparing Final Fantasy and Demon Souls which I just can't decide......
