www.twitter.com — My favorite game is Silent Hill 2. In all my twenty something years of gaming I’ve never played a game quite like this one. Very happy that it has be re-released in HD and I can actually enjoy it again. SH2 is not a normal game by any stretch. As a matter of fact it’s an outlier even in it’s own franchise. What makes this game so good is that it’s truly a playing experience more than just a game, it’s kind of live and interactive movie. Everything about the game is designed to put the player on edge. The rooms are oddly shaped, noises painful, perception hampered, even the monsters aren’t just random. They are all dark archetypes of the human psyche or more accurately different repressed feelings that the main character has. What I probably enjoyed most about this game was the ending. Never before has a game ending explained a game so well. So well as a matter of fact that I bought it 100% and would venture to say SH2 is fairly realistic game. Also, playing through a second time after knowing the ending was an entirely different game.
