Did You Know?


A documentary series titled The Real Silent Hill Experience, or TRSHE for short, was made by a group of fans to dissect and clearly explain the franchise. This series has been noted by Silent Hill's current developers, and praised by some KCET/Team Silent members for its authenticity and attention to detail. Fan reception however, has been mixed since evidence in the documentary disproves long believed franchise theories, such as the multiple dimension theory. See more »

The most horrifying game I've ever played!
20 July 1999 | by (Sterling Heights, Michigan) – See all my reviews

Forget "Resident Evil" if you want to play a game with lots of scares. "Silent Hill" is the scariest game you will ever play! It's certainly the scariest one I've played anyway. What makes this game so terrifying is the sense of isolation and pure silence. I remember running in the streets, and the music track was purely the wind blowing. Then, the radio(which detects incoming monsters) emits a shrieking noise, letting you know somewhere near you, is a monster silently stalking you. The game is very atmospheric, with fantastic graphics that make "Resident Evil" crummy by comparison. Some of the camera angles move up in the air and then pan down again as you move, making it feel cinematic and dynamic. That kind of stuff blew me away immediately! I never completed this game, because it was too frightening for me to deal with. With some respects, video games are much more terrifying than films, because you are no longer observing. You become the characters, who are plummeted into a nightmarish hell of fear. Sure "Resident Evil" scared me when I first played it, but not like this! This was just too much! Try it out, but God knows how long you can handle it!
