Seems like that's a lot of people's opinions...

I didn't notice that; didn't read the third page.

And:

That's what I always thought...also cuz it's the last save point in the game.


It is the last save point in the game. :wink:

i was thinking that it had something to do with saving your game. like when u save, its kind of like saving a memory, and since this game has alot to do with memories?. does that make any sense..i guess its stupid.

It'd help if you could fit in why there's 9 save points/memories into your theory...

Yeah I like "SAVE STUPID BECAUSE THE END IS NEAR AND IT'S A LITTLE TOUGH!" This is one thing in #2 we can avoid theorizing.

3 x 3 equals 9.

True, but this is overanalyzing. looking into things is fun, but people start overanalyzing something as irrellevant as the number of save points in a game and then it gets some theory of it's own and us people who think it's just a coincidence get called wrong.

it gets old

Maybe if we count all of the save points throughout the entire game, they'll be divisible by three!?

Didn't someone post that they were re-playing the game and was going to count the saves so we can solve this question? How close are you to finishing?

Me? No I didn't do that in the end. I get the impression it won't mean much. All I can say is I'm pretty sure there are more than nine.

Don't forget the save point in the trailer (where you get the hyperspray!).

Try counting the number of holes and hole-like passages that you have to traverse through.

My first movie was called "369". It's my personal "magic" number and from what I can see, many numbers and geometrical forms can be drawn out of these three numbers...

...and I'm not a numerologist, but that number is interesting.

I don't really know about geometry, but at least, whenever I see multipled numbers of 3 in this game, I think about James, Angela, and Eddie.
Like 3 coins, 3 music boxes, or 6 hung men.

For those who want to delve deeper then this is one of those things, that is most likely a layer. To those who don't, skip it. But despite whatever beliefs you hold, numbers have held significance to various cultures through out history, and the number nine is one of those numbers. The theory of the ego/god to me is the most plausiable. James comes to the realazation that he is "god" in his world, that he most retain control of the world. It's letting the player know in advance that he is transcending the weak shell, and that he will soon arise to his paradise.

I highly doubt it just means you NEED to save. The game designers aren't that sloppy, and could get that same effect with one large save point.

 Post subject: The 9 Savepoints

Missing since: 28 Mar 2006

Last seen at: Somewhere on Nathan Avenue...
I am also of the opinion that these are purely a warning. Throughout Silent Hill 2, save points crop up here and there and they don't look particularly startling. The fact that 9 are suddenly in front of you tells me that YOU'D BETTER SAVE NOW. It's a pretty clever thing which has been done. Lets face it - if there was only the one red rectangle there (an ordinary savepoint) how many of us would have simply ignored it and charged into the hell hole next door? The fact that there is a grid causes suspicion. You are sure they are save points, but had better examine it just in case it's a puzzle. Therefore the save game screen appears and it's likely you'll save for the hell of it.

Someone else pointed out that this is a hotel we're in when we reach this point. How do we known that the 9 save points weren't previously photos of staff members or slots for each room on that floor where mail could be left? :roll:
