Well they didn't have to make the game. It was fun. Love it or get off the silent hill: Homecoming section.... If you don't like the ending, and just want to bash the whole game, Go Here - viewtopic.php?f=29&t=13375 , This is the Con section. Its more fit for you.

They did if they wanted their paychecks.

Back off, I can post in any thread I want; especially here, since I've been on-topic the whole time.

I'm not being offensive. They could have easily made a different game. If you don't like the game, Then don't play it. And if you do comment on it's Con section! Hehe, Not meaning to sound troublesome, Just trying to help the best I can to explain the hospital ending. I apologize if I did sound offensive though, Friend.

I've posted in the con section years ago, so there's no point repeating myself, there.

Only happy, feel-good talk allowed? I thought this was a discussion board?


Don't take everything so personally, isaacrood.

^That. If you don't like the discussion (Though you've been one of the top contenders in it) that's going on then excuse yourself from it and don't post in this topic anymore until you feel the need to do so again. It's that simple. Not everyone is going to share your hardcore love for Homecoming, so you need to just accept that.

Yeah, but this thread is about the Hospital ending. As such there's bound to be good and bad comments about it. Praise or criticism, it's still a part of the topic, and belongs here. Besides, Aura has brought up many valid points regarding this ending.

Personally I think the Hospital ending is the crappiest ending out of all of them. Besides everything already mention about plot holes and so forth, I just feel that it cheapens the rest of the game. What was the point of everything Alex went through if it were all a delusional dream? I can't help but think such a thing is a cop out and a waste of time. Of course a game where the entire thing is a dream can be pulled off if done correctly, but Homecoming doesn't pull it off well at all. I couldn't help but feel that ending was cheap.

I got this ending when I played the game two years ago... And yeah... It doesn't make too much sense... Just like any other endings...

The hospital ending used the plot device used in many many TV shows, when at the end you get the "it was all in the protagonist's head" explanation. Only in this case it comes with a lot of problems... The way I see it is that they could have made it a bit better. I believe that the only thing this ending explains is why the clocks have stopped at 2:06.

I'll try to explain this the best way I can. If we disregard the whole SH history, and the diaries and observe this ending in an isolated environment, then maybe it could make sense. Everything we see is a big play that occurs in Alex's head. For example, Wheeler and Adam are Alex's doctors, but in his "play" they get different roles - his father and a cop. Elle, judge Holloway and others might have been nurses, or other hospital staff... Alex might have had a book about Silent Hill around there somewhere that was his favorite, or maybe he visited it sometime in his life... He might have loved the occult and stuff like that so he created the Order in his mind (they could show this in the ending by letting us take a look around his room, which they don't)...

But taking the story as a whole with all the background, it's just way too messed up to make sense...

Except we already have an explanation for that: Josh died at 2:06 in the morning, when they snuck out after their bedtime.

This is a fact that the Hospital ending doesn't negate, and since they're trying to help him get over his delusions, why the FUCK would they put a mentally ill person in a room number that would aggravate his delusions?

"Well, he still doesn't accept that he killed Josh, and now he thinks the number 206 has a magical, symbolic meaning that pervades his life. I wonder what that's all about?"

But why would he DO that? I mean, hell, JOSH was his brother, so some facts of his life weren't made up; why in the hell would he replace his parents with a couple anonymous hospital goons he barely knows?

Might as well just say that Alex is someone in our world who loved Silent Hill and also he's fucking crazy so he hallucinated his own dumb fanfiction Silent Hill adventure.

I fully endorse this as the true end to Homecoming. 8)

I do too. It's the only ending that closes up all plotholes.

Also Alex is gay because that theory is too awesome to let go.

And because of his desire to dress like a war veteran even though he's just a psycho, and because of his fixation with being impaled that is illustrated various times through the game, and because of his perfect hair...etc...

And because of the ending where he is turned into a Boogeyman. Just what do all those Boogeymen do afterwards, in that dark chamber of a room? Shirtless like that. It's pornography, I tell you.

Well, he doesn't do it on purpose... It's just that those things happen often in episodes like that in TV Shows, or movies... I was just saying.

Hey... I was just trying to justify the ending, I'm not saying it makes a lot of sense. :P

Psychology doesn't work like that ever.

So hm, i read a lot in this forum, specially this topic, and i think i can help with the so called plotholes. Since i finished this game with the "smile" ending, things don't make sense and i actually got mad after i finished the game. Every silent hill game was able to explain why things happened the way they did. Silent hill 1, 3 and origins was all about alessa and the abuses she suffered. The silent hill world of this games was all made by her twisted head and psychic powers,with the exception of origins, where the monsters where half made by her, and others were from travis mind, and the otherworld's God using his mind to create some of his fears. silent hill 2 was all about a guy who couldn't move past the euthanasia-like murder he commited. Silent hill the room came from the mind of a psychopath dragging that goddamn apartment to hell, while all his victims try to kick your ass. So, finally, silent hill homecoming, for sure the most confusing. The Smile ending and the hospital ending are the only ones who can make any possible sense. i'm not here to confirm either, just to throw some ideas. The hospital ending would make more sense, IF not by one thing : Other people saw what alex saw and felt the way they did, and their diaries on konami website confirm that. they were experiencing the same abandoned city, people missing, the fog, "things like animals" making noises at night, as stated by wheeler. Elle frequently talks about how his mother, judge holloway, is absent physically and mentally, and in absolute denial about why the town is so empty. I do believe alex was in a hospital, in a state of shock, after killing his brother, and even lobotomized,i really do. but nothing that happens in the game was made from his mind, it was real. The "old gods" knew that shepherd family broke the pact that protected the city for so long and so they started throwing every plague they could think of and simultaneously, judge holloway was trying to make amends, through "the order", just to don't get her skinny ass kicked as ours.
everyone must read this diaries, they explain a lot of the cutscenes and thoughts we see in the game, and opens your mind to lean to one ending or other..

So i do believe in the smile ending,where the old gods were trying to destroy everything and specially alex, by putting against him his "blocked" experiences after killing his brother, like the monsters and sepulcher,scarlet,aspyxia and at last, amnion. The old gods,judge holloway and order had one mission : kill everyone, and they almost did if not for alex. By the end of the cutscene, after amnion, you see alex climbing up and hugging elle, but the city still with the fog, so the city was not free from god's wrath, but alex was !!

that's what i think, what happens since the beginning, where alex is dragged by a doctor and see other doctors killing other people (the other children) until amnion, it's the gods using his own fears against shepherd's glen and silent hill !!

Agree that the hospital ending sucks.. brings lots of questions without answers, it´s also annoying how the game hints to it because we hear zapping and alex passes out at certain parts of the game. The drowning one may even be worse. Think the Leave ending is the most acceptable and the only one who doesn´t bring plotholes that i can remember.
