How do Harry, James, and Heather know that a lock is broken? Are they locksmiths? Do they carry lighted magnifying-eyepieces with them?

I understand there can be a difference between turning a door knob and the door not opening, and not being able to turn a door knob and the door not opening, but doors also do both when they're locked!

Another thing, why are so many locks broken? Who goes around breaking all the locks? How do you even do that?

What are your thoughts this very common issue? :D








Don't even "it's just a video game.. blah blah" (ruin the fun...)

Suspension of disbelief. But, I guess one way of telling a lock is broken or not is if you see part of a broken key inserted in the keyhole. So, perhaps that's what the SH protagonists are seeing.

That makes sense. I always wondered if some broken doors in the games secretly became unbroken and openable leading to Easter eggs and secret areas.

You have used the padlock key. It's no longer useful. Discard the key? :oops:

God: I miss that SO very much now in horror games! :?


Yes, I miss that in horror games as well. I remember that specifically from resident evil games myself. I also like when objects in your inventory are 3D models you can examine and rotate.

Some of the door don't even have knobs. I mean, the doors might be both locked and broken, so you have no hope of opening them wuthout a crowbar or something.

This thread is asking the real questions.

I'm just assuming it's because how the locks and doors feel/look. Sometimes it's just pretty obvious and in a world like Silent Hill, practically everything is broken and ruined. Not surprised 75% of the doors and locks are too.
