^I don't have this issue, because I don't feel that the series is getting worse with each entry, but rather that it has it's ups and downs, like most series do. For instance, whilst SH1 is my favourite, I like Shattered Memories as much as I like SH2 and SH4. I prefer Origins to SH3 and put SH3 at the same level as Homecoming (they sit joint last in my opinion)

I love Shattered Memories; it's personally my favorite. But apparently we're not gonna get another one of those because people bitched and moaned.

That sucks, I really would have liked to see another Wii title by Climax, I'm pretty sure they would have learned from their mistakes. (All they would have had to do to make it perfect for me would have been increased variety of monsters, monsters during exploration, and a way to turn off the on-screen button prompts, oh, and some more cerebral puzzles.)

I wouldn't mind seeing climax work on a game of their own. Just not a silent hill game.

I'd have no problem with them working on another title, I enjoyed origins, and I thought SHSM was great. That said I would like to see what Climax could to with their own horror IP.

i think climax would be better suited for a mystery game than a horror game. they could probably make a pretty great mystery game actually.

^I believe the reason why the series had been hit with the fans should be Homecoming, not SH4. And honestly I didn't find it that scary, while The Room was brilliant in its indirect depiction (this is also, I believe, why fans didn't appreciate it). + I agree with Aura: why don't fans accept any changes, especially the best ones? SHSM was perfect and it's my 2nd best game after SH2.

^Well to be fair not every change is a good one. For instance a lot of people didn't like the room set up in sh4(i loved it though), and i wouldn't consider how shattered memories went from psychological horror to psychological thriller a good change either. Also they took a huge risk by making the game rely on chase sequences to be the main scare of the game.

Shattered Memories wasn't bad, but the otherworld sections just wasn't scary to me at all. It was more annoying than anything...i only liked the "nowhere otherworld" which i thought started off brilliantly. I liked those exploration sections and even tho there was no combat, there was still something surreal and mysterious about the environments.

I still think it would've faired better if they would've added simple combat and some monsters in the exploration areas....and some better monster designs as well...i wasn't really impressed with the design of the "raw shocks"...

Nah mikefile, Shattered Memories just sucked due to it being a shitty game... and if anyone can't accept that, then they should probably blame their taste in games, because it appears to suck as well.

"Well someone certainly seems butthurt from having his favorite Silent Hill game bashed over and over."

nah, not at all Aura, i was actually joking. i just thought it was silly for mikefile to say we should blame Homecoming for not liking Shattered Memories. also, I don't really have a favorite for this series, but if i had to choose, it'd probably be the first game.

and Typographenia I think you're right when you say it started with SH2. also, like you i have the same problem when suggesting what SH game someone should give a try. it's also kind of difficult cos i don't think any of my friends still have a PS2 like me.

^ I make my best friend borrow my PS2 to play my games. I make it seem like a nice thing to do but it's really for me lol. Gotta say, if any of those friends sold their PS2 that was a mistake, I don't get why anyone ever sells systems.

The series has been hit or miss with people since SH2 because the series kept changing after the first game. However, while SH2 and SH3 got accepted very well with time, I'm not sure that's going to happen with some of the recent games.

I've gotta say though, even I didn't like SH2 at first. It seemed too slow and vague in the beginning and I wasn't used to PS2 graphics yet. Now it's my favorite game of all time!

Edit: Hey, that's my 800th post!
