The screams are alittle much I like both versions.In this one the screams show that Mary wanted to live and tried to fight back but at the same time the silence made it feel eerie and seemed to fit better.

They should have kept the screams. It makes it more creepier and also makes it more obvious that James killed Mary even though the scene is blurry.

I said it earlier in the thread I think, but this for me is exactly the reason why I'm glad they didn't use the screaming version. It's not supposed to be obvious, if it was completely obvious it would totally ruin it, for me at least.

The first time I saw the censored version, I thought that one of the patient demons was killing Mary. That wierded me out.

It wasn't as creepy as the soundless one. The silence and static of the censored one reminded me of the Ring video tape. Good times.

I'm glad they didn't use this one...this here kinda made it obvious as to what he was doing. In the censored vid, as others have already pointed out, you didn't know what he was doing which kept the mystery of his journey in SH fully intact.

I think the uncensored audio makes it seem like Mary was being raped, or vagina-titilated in some way, which could add a whole lot to the rape discussion.

the censored one's better. the silence and static makes it more scary and disturbing, just like what Uryi said.
the screaming makes it sound...corny. :P

I like the censored version better, but a couple screams would've been ok... The uncensored version was a bit too intense in my opinion :(

I'm glad they scrapped that idea, it would seem pretty harsh if they were to go along with it in my opinion.

When I saw the video in game for the first time, I realised exactly what he was doing, so for me, the censored version didn't add ambiguity on what he was doing to her. However, the silent version does add ambiguity in the area of whether it was a more peaceful thing he was doing as she had just given up or if it was forceful or violent....and I think that works better.

I like the censored one better, simply because it is silent, adding to "Silent" Hill. But I really think that they aren't intended to be connected. The tape kind of reminded me of the tape in "The Ring," which was scary and disturbing because there was almost no sound, and most of the time, no sound at all is scarier.

Thanks for this, I think that games should have a gallery of 'dodgy but relevant' content accessible after you complete them. You know, for content that may not have been necessary to have in the game, but still important.

After playing SH2 with a few friends at different moments, I noticed most of them didn't really "get" the video until I showed them the uncensored scene, hit them a little harder emotionally too. If they ever re-release SH2 on the PSN or something I hope they reinsert this scene, uncensored.

droo said: I actually find the silent version of the murder more disturbing.
Agreed. When you first watch it, you're all like, "What the hell?" Then every subsequent viewing with knowledge of James' guilt just makes it seem like Mary isn't fighting back, making the scene way creepier.
Alessandro said: I like it. it sounds more genuine.
Yeah. Even a suicidal person will fight back against someone else trying to take their life, so the screams in this version make it more realistic.

I'm kinda torn. I think a few very muffled screams or something might have been ok but not the full-on like in the uncensored one. Although, I would bet my bootie that the reason they opted for the censored is because... could you like James after that? At least in the censored it doesn't look or sound quite so cold and heartless.
