Konami announced the launch dates for three "new" titles for it's popular survival horror series, Silent Hill.
Should be an interesting game. Not that Konami has ever made a real game.
Here you go dude. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... I'm pretty SURE you can find a real game in there.
I stand corrected. I see Frogger. Great game.
actually Konami made lots of great games.. Castlevania, Metal gear and others
Silent hill has always been just OK for me... Nothing awesome, nothing terrible. I may give the Collection a shot
when Team Silent takes it over
The Silent Hill franchise has simply lost it's relevancy. People grow up and out of certain things, I think Silent Hill is one of those, I remember playing the original back when I was a teenager and it was great fun and scary and a good game, they have all gone downhill since then and I've found other games that do that formula better.
Completely agree... Like that guy above said, all of Konamis games have lost their relevancy.
It's less about the formula and more about the team. A lot of the members from the earlier titles left somewhere around Silent Hill 3 or 4. They went on to make a good horror game called Siren
SH died when team silent left konami.
Why save it? It had a good run, just let it die and move on to a new IP already, don't torture the franchise like this.
I actually enjoyed Silent Hill Homecoming. But Silent Hill 2 raised the bar so high that it's impossible for any other installment to reach its greatness. Here's hoping i'm wrong though with this new SH.
In answer to the title: Nope
With what has happened to the survival horror genre I'm hoping that the new Silent Hill will do more than just save the series, but survival horror too. I don't trust CAPCOM to do it with Resident Evil: Black Ops or any future games either given their track record. The fact that the team working on this new Silent Hill is looking to the originals for inspiration gives me hope, and I'll definitely pay attention to this game a lot more than the next Resident Evil, and I usually picked Resident Evil over Silent Hill in the past.
I do not consider Resident Evil survival horror anymore. It's gone more into the 'action adventure' genre than horror. Btw, love the name.
i doubt this reboot would be enough to save this dead franchise
