I don't know if this has been covered before, I did check but couldn't find anything. If someone has a link to a thread already discussing this, I would be grateful for you to post it, thanks.
Anyway, my brother has this strange idea about the bogeyman ending. He tried to argue that maybe the executioners that created pyramid head in Silent Hill 2, via the photo of cloth hooded men, actually wore metal hoods too.
It seems outlandish but he says that maybe the reason pyramid head has a metal head instead of cloth is because it actually happened. He also explains that the bogeyman ending seems like former cult members making Alex one of them and is because you become as ruthless as the Order or the fractured part of it in Shepherd's Glenn. He has seen me play SH4 and thinks that maybe there are runes or something inside the helmet to help "influence the gods" to control them like Walter being brainwashed with Valtiel
Bearing in mind that he only played Homecoming and it is one of the only few that I haven't completed so I'm not very knowledgable on it. If anyone can help prove or disprove this, I would be very happy
Edit: Thanks for the input, guys. Much appreciated.
Is it stated anywhere that the characters are seeing metal hooded manifestations instead of cloth hooded manifestations for a reason. I just don't understand why they would see a pitcure of robed executioners yet see metal 0.o
If it is in Translated Memories or Book of Lost Memories can you provide a link, thanks.
