Okay, personally, I don't like neither of them.

Although the new one is artistically better than the first one, I'm not very fond of it at all. If I had to choose between on of them though, I'd preffer the old one better.

I'd love to see the design brief for this logo. It'd surely be a laugh to read through.

The new logo is soo much better, the old one sucks, this one is still lame, the shattered memories font i mean, all the SH logos had a great impact, and had great fonts, at least for me, even Origins, this one is not scary or troubling or anything, its like a ... i dont know, unfinished, sketch. i HOPE IT GETS BETTER.

its too unnoticeable to be spelling Silent Hill.

o rly? [/oldmeme]
The first Silent Hill game title was a thinned out Arial font, 2 through 4 were just Arial Bold, and even the movie was just Arial Bold with a blur effect on some parts. These are normal fonts with simple effects on them (except for the Silent Hill 2 title; that was just plain insane <3).
I don't know if it was in this thread or not. Or if it was even in this forum. I don't know; I haven't read this topic over clearly. But someone hit the nail on the head when they said that the original titles just normal fonts that come with your computer with dramatic effects that can be done on Photoshop.

Origins and Homecoming are the only ones that have "original fonts". In fact, the font they were originally using for Shattered Memories was the Origins font, but with icicles on it. I like the newer font that they're using, mainly because it's... simplistic.
It's not like the Homecoming title where they tried too hard. Homecoming was just... ugh. Thank God they're not using that one.

EDIT: I agree with you on the original titles having a great impact, but it was because they were simplistic, not over done.

I must say that the new logo looks better and more original than the old one. It looks like it's made off ice and the fog surrounding it makes it more mysterious and gives it more character.

I love the Silent Hill Series. The Games: Homecoming, Origins, and Shattered Memories, did nothing wrong whatsoever, they were developed well, and did things different. Just because they were not by Team Silent doesn't mean that they're bad games. I believe in this series. I Believe that one day, we can have a game that will make all Silent Hill fans Happy. I believe that Silent Hill 8 can achieve this.
Team Silent may be gone, but their Series isn't. Instead... it's here, it's alive.


Put this In Your Sig If you agree :)

New logo makes "cold" theme a lot less abrasive. I like it!

Seriously?

yeah..... i was kinda disappointed by the small "t" in "SiLENt"..... the t is the only prob..... but overall looks great....... WHEN IS IT GONNA BE RELEASED?! I'VE BEEN WAITING TOO LONG FOR IT...... IM EXCITED ABOUT Lisa...... Lisa Garland, where are you?

EDIT: I think the game is gonna be great...... unless Lisa isnt on it..... that would be the real end of Silent Hill..... i always like girls like Lisa being the comforter in games like these..... except for Elle..... plain b*tch..... Elle lost the Silent Hill Girl touch..... not only because she lives in Sheperd's Glen.....

Anyway, did "Sheperd's Glen" even appear in the other SH Titles..... Since Silent Hill 1-4 had their connections with the stories......

I have to agree the old one looked less refined. The icicles made the logo too Christmassy and I halfway expected the story to replace Pyramid Head with Frosty, the Butcher.

I like the new one better, for sure. I agree that the older one looked a bit childish, also cliche. The new one looks more professional and does a better job of catching your eye.

At the same time, I have my gripes with it. It seems too bright and shiny; gives off a sort of "magical" feel, which is far from what it should do. I'd prefer it were more eerie, like the old ones.

New logo, hands down. Old one looks like something I could have made in art class with crayons.

Which would have still been better, playing on the twisted child theme that seems to weaved throughout the entire franchise.

Yeah all the non-Japanese games have had terrible logos.

I think the reason is that they all look far too conscientiously designed.

The original games and the film logo are very simply fonts, but with eerie worn weathering effects added to them, giving them a kind of quiet dignity and eeriness. They look worn and faded, like the town in the games.

Origins onwards have looked designed and cartoony. I don't know if I prefer the new logo for Shattered Memories or not. It's definitely more interesting and pretty than the original, but looks like it's for some kind of fantasy role playing computer game.

(I know it IS for a kind of fantasy computer game, but that doesn't mean it should live up to the stereotypes!)

If I cared about logos more than the game, I think the new one looks like from some Christmas special. I prefer the old one.
