Visually, I prefer it.

...Audio, not so much. The lack of audio make it better for me. Watch the uncensored one without the headphones in. Looks better.

not too disturbing, shoulda used it in my opinion. Like some of you said...I had no idea what was going on my first playthrough, with this version there would be no doubt.


That's exactly the reason why I'm glad they used the version they did. I liked the fact that I couldn't work out exactly what was going on in that scene at first, that I was left afterwards thinking: holy crap, was that what I think it was?

Maybe the screaming would reinforce the feeling of her suffering. We can't really feel much of the pain when we had the censored one. More like anger during gameplay for PS2.

I believe the original fits better but I also think that most of us (or its just me :?: ) didnt actually realise what he was doing at the frst time. I realised it after he told Laura and I was SHOCKED !!!!!!!

Anyhow, someone ripped off the sound from the PC version SH2 disc along with recording the video from the game combining them into the clip we have just seen.

Good job.


Fungo ripped it.

I only have the game for PC.

I've never seen the censored version, I guess.

When i first played it i thought, because it cut away it was giving more mystery, kindof a "did he smother her or was he getting up to kiss her goodbye" kind of thing.
Now ive replayed it a few times its obvious hes going to kill her but i think with the screams it would have spoilt it an ickle tiny bit.... maybe... :mrgreen:

When I first watched that video, I found it incredibly disturbing. I know that being disturbed is part of the whole Silent Hill experience, but... I think it kind of had its pros and cons, when I first played Silent Hill I didn't know what James did and was confused, and the screams kind of clear it up, but.. it's really hard for me to watch that video :?

Agreed. The silence is creepier for me, and makes me feel more sad and whatnot.

I'm torn; the sounds make it more obvious what James is doing ( the first time I couldn't make out what was going on) but it does take away from the emotional impact.

Yeah, visually, it's harder to watch, and the screams make it harder to listen to. It gives off a different feel than what's actually there in the game, to me. The silenced version is just creepy and sad to me, and had a bigger impact all around (as has been said).

I can say that the uncut version also makes me feel quite a bit less sympathetic to James's character, considering that he could hear her struggling and screaming... Oh well.

When people can't see things, their sense of hearing becomes more acute. And the same applies to what we can see, but can't hear. To be honest the silence of the scene fits the game far better. This game thrives on ambiguity. If you can't hear or see something in this game but are aware of it, it gives you the feeling that you need to see or hear it, or at the very least understand it to some degree. It's a way of keeping you emmersed in the game in a more cerebral way.

Putting the screams and such back into this wouldn't have been a terrible decision, but I think it gives a very subtle but important undertone without the audio, and it fits thematically with what Team Silent was trying to accomplish with this game.

The screams were a bit much for me, only because I find watching her die in silence is more...chilling O.O;;
As we've grown to know James' personality as like...loving his wife D:
And the screams made him seem really brutal T_T

Plus all the comments in that video are...interesting o.o;;;;
Like how people are 100% certain he raped her before killing her. I don't really believe that otherwise he might have confessed that in the ending scene. Rather than just saying "I didnt want you to suffer"

But I think Konami made a good move using the censored version ^_^

I actually can't watch the uncensored version. I've tried, but it's just way too depressing for me, especially with the screams. I can't imagine what kind of pain someone must go through to sympathy kill their own wife like that... hell, or what someone would experience while doing that. It's just too much.

The version used is classy and terrifying in it's own way, and I'm glad they used a censored one. Shit might have been flipped by conservative anti-video game groups if they went with the uncensored video.

^ Yeah, I see what you mean. It's difficult to watch as its so realistic to hear O.o Well, thats what I thought anyway ^_^;

The silenced version adds more mystery. The screams makes it obvious of whats actually happening.

It's a very hard hitting video O.O
I mean, the emotion behind it, not so much what your actually looking at. [if that makes /any/ sense whatsoever XD]

The censored version seems more disturbing. But it was kinda neat watching it with the screams :twisted:

By the way, that's a pretty cute avatar Emzo.

Yeah, more mystery |D -ominous poof of smoke-
I personally love that kind of horror, so I dont mind either way, as you interpret both in completely different ways O.O;;

Yours is pretty cool too :3
