Indirectly, yes, as seen in this video at 02:05.

I think the metal flooring is used to be a bit unsettling. It'd make a clanking sound you know? And it's just different from having a 'normal' floor. It could symbolize something. (I believe someone mentioned feeling caged before.) But then again, it could just be there to be different/creepy.

Most fans didn't like the film so much like you.

1. I was being sarcastic

2. I didn't know you spoke for "most fans".

There is such a thing as a "general consensus" :D

Agreed, but "general consensus" is a relative term. Besides that, I never implied I liked the film more than the next person......

Well, did you ever think about me being sarcastic as well?

Most fans didn't like the movie [so much like you].

Sarcasm is notoriusly difficult to pick up when reading a post, especially when it doesn't really make any sense.


Back on topic though...

That floor created a sense for me that there wasn't much seperating me from well, hell, and that I could fall through at any time... Very effective scare tactic by TS, I'd say... :)

I think the theme is 'industrial wasteland'.

Can you stop fighting since it's just the internet..

Sure, the metal grating could be just metal grating and have no real reason at all (much like anything we've theorized about) but it makes the game much more deeper and interesting when we look at it as a symbol, fitting to the overall feel of the series. I liked alone's barrier-theory, it sounded fitting.

This is just a little theory that has probably already been discussed but... Meh...

Sometimes I imagine the mesh/chain link flooring to be hidden beneath the "normal" world. Alessa created this otherworld soooo... Hellish world hidden beneath the "real" world in a way reflects Alessa being hidden away in that room for so long. Expanding on my theory, IF(big emphasis on the "if". It's just speculation) the otherworld is hidden beneath then it's like it's hidden beneath the subconcious of the people who go to Silent Hill and occasionally it surfaces and overtakes the "real" world.

The [otherside] never does overtake the real world. People from the real world are pulled into it, or enter of their own volition.

Makes sense due to the fact that it manifests itself.

Hey, so you're REALLY not afraid of falling down those "chain-like floors"? maan there are some parks in here with the ground like that and I freak out when I'm walking over it... I think I'm gonna fall and die and only walk when there are larger wires. It's pretty obviously to me why the floor is like that, cause it IS one of my fears...

I think it's to establish the whole thing with it being Alessa's rage and all that. And also, I'd be friggin afraid to walk on grating like that O.O Incase I was to fall through, or anything I'd drop would fall down.

As BlueMushroom says, and also I totally agree. Those with Vertigo would really be disturbed by it D:

[spoiler]The idea of her being kept underground would explain the walls continuing. As she may have felt she was down a 'bottomless pit' as it were.[/spoiler]

I also always wondered why the floors and streets changed in the otherworld. :?

Its mad lol, but gives it a great apearance, just pladed through sh1 again today and in nowhere now ten years ago i was scared

Did the room in which Alessa was kept have grated floors? I've been in a few industrial/commercial basements that had flooring similar the the floor in the game. Maybe it's another way for her to project her horrible experiences on others.
