Maybe it's because I've played/watched too many Japanese horrors, but I'd argue the early Silent Hill games have a very distinct Japanese flavor that the later games definitely don't have. The Japanese approach horror very differently than the West and it shows in their horror games. Games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill might have been inspired by Western/American horror, but they were still very Japanese in their way of storytelling/setting/atmospher e/etc.

"Samus Aran??? Really...? You played with the character for the whole game assuming that the character was male. How does that promote a positive female character? How does that portray her as a woman when she is portrayed as a stereotypical male throughout the game?"

But WAS she portrayed as a stereotypical male in the original game? I think that's the point the devs were trying to make...Gamers automatically assumed she was a male just because she was a kick a... #5.2

At this point, I'd just be happy with a good protagonist of EITHER gender.

I haven't found a Silent Hill protagonist interesting since Heather from SH3. :( #3

You're missing out on some good games and movies, then.

Huh? The article didn't say female characters have to be "some hard arse, masculine thing" at all. o_O
Most of the girls on the list (Rinoa, Selphie, Quistis, and Aerith) are just regular girls. They aren't unusually strong, tough, brave, over-the-top sexy, or deadly. They're just...well...women.

I think that's what the article is getting at...female characters DON'T need to be super feminine/sexy to attract male gamers' attention, or... #2.1

"But I think we brought a sense of naturalism to the updated version."

Hmmm...am I the only one who feels a bit awkward reading this part? It feels like a jab towards the previous voice actors for not sounding "natural". Feel free to praise your own work, but don't criticize the previous voice actors who contributed their time and effort into making Silent Hil 2 the game that it is today.

With that being said, I can understand why peop... #6

I don't know if I'd say Mario's voice actor "sucks" (since he doesn't exactly have many linbes to begin with), but yeah he definitely isn't the BEST voice actor out there. #1.1.3

People become accustomed to what they're used to. Silent Hill 2 doesn't have the best voice acting in the world (except for Maria- I stand by my opinion that her voice and mood swings were AMAZING)... but when you grow up with certain voices, they do tend to grow on you. It's the same reason fans complained about the new voices in the Pokemon and Dragonball Z series. The originals might not be as "professional" as the new ones, but they're the voices fans are familia... #7.2

Blashphemy! The Mortal Kombat movie was awesome! (in a cheesy 90s kind of way) #1.2.1

I think she looks kinda like Madoka from FF4, except with longer hair: http://30.media.tumblr.com/...

There's also a picture in one of the scans that shows a girl covering her face (a symptom of the curse/disease from Fatal Frame 4), so this might be a spinoff to FF4. #2.1

I don't know...I think maybe they created the rumors so that they could get a good gauge on how many people were interested in a sequel. They might not have any plans for a Bayonetta 2 jut yet, but I won't be surprised if it does eventually happen.

Or am I being too optimistic? #9

God, I hope so. I remember Tecmo said about a year ago that they had plans of making a new Fatal Frame for the PS3. I hope they haven't forgotten. I'm dying for a new FF game. One that actually makes it to the West this time. #1.1

I don't think it's the accent the author's complaining about. It's more the manly voice and the 'slave slang' that makes her sound like those old racist movies and cartoons from the 30s and 40s:

It's practically the same fighting mechanics as DMC. Hell, it's better. #18.1

Are you honestly surprised? Most of the Fatal Frame fanbase played the games on Sony consoles. Of course they're going to be disappointed the next FF game isn't coming to Vita or Ps3. #7.2

Eh. Hollywood has used less in the past and made it work. e.g. Mortal Kombat wasn't too bad of a movie.

If Hollywood really tried they could make anything work. With the millions of dollars that get put into movies, I'm surprised there are only a few blockbusters each year. There really is no excuse for them to be constantly putting out hundreds of shitty movies each year. :/ #3.1

I can't help but think the devs didn't intend on her sounding like that...but then whoever cast the voice actress decided to be a dick and said "sound as stereotypical as you can! mwahahaha!" The slang/voice just doesn't seem to match her appearance. It's like watching an awkward outdated blackface skit. #2
