What does Book of Memories mean for the future of the Silent Hill series?

Read on and let me explain why I think Silent Hill's Vita debut could be the best direction the series has taken in years. Image by VIVIsect of silenthillforum.com. (Dan Licht, Dev, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, PS Vita, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories, Tomm Hulett, WayForward)

this game looks so out of place.

Yeah it's like that top down Ghostbusters PSN/XBLA game. Only thing related to the series was the title. It straight up sucked. I don't know though. You can't blame this like it's the Vita's fault, when the console title just came out and 99% of all the reviews said it was an udder failure. Maybe sometimes change is bad. But in the same, when you don't change people hate you and call you repetitive regardless the quality. I think there no hope in the media.

lol udder failure. Are you talking about the console itself? It's amazing. Give it some time for games to be properly implemented for the console.

They need to take this series out of the hands of these western devs.

Put this game on the shelf for a while, let it sit. Homecoming was okay but this latest installment is god awful . This series needs to go back to the creators of 1 thru 3...hell even 4 was better than what we are getting now.

The thing that made SH so good was the surrealism and ambiguous plots that each different person got out of it.
Now it seems its all shock and gore.

No good!

I dug out my old Copy of Silent Hill 2 on PC and I sat there just thinking to myself "Why have they let this series go so low?" Forgot how twisted and Horrific (In a good way) Silent Hill 2 is and SH3. Survival Horror in general has gone down hill which is a shame because playing a true survival horror is unlike anything else!

It might be good. Just the graphics have to be really good.

...So I take it no-one else is looking forward to Book of Memories, huh?

After the announcement of Zwei, I have a feeling that Konami days with Silent Hill are numbered unless they actually found a team who are truly devoted to the past games' vision instead of just playing them for reference data.....

I was so bummed when I first saw the footage of this game

silent hill, as a twin stick shooter?

just no.

it may even be a good game, but no way is it silent hill.

it has about as much to do with silent hill as scott ciencin's comics do, they also featured some magic book and no connection to silent hill other than the name, not to mention being barely coherent as a story without even trying figure out how they fit in with everything else in silent hill.

what does this game mean for the series?

it means they no longer care about the quality of the series, just how much money they can make off it.

"what does this game mean for the series?

A brief shift in genre for a one-off handheld title means nothing of the sort.
