not to sure of it,s name but the one where Dahlia is slapping Harry well think of the monsters a man in a abuse relationship will spawn.
and no the female abuses the man not the over way. I just wished that shattered memories had this story cause harry seemed like he couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag.

That's the weak and wicked ending (I think that's the name), and I hated it.

So, let me see if I'm reading this right-

You're saying imagine what would have resulted if the monsters ingame were a result of a man in a relationship with an abusive wife? Well, depending on how you play it, there are elements throughout the game that suggest this very thing already happening. However, due to the nature of how things change on how you play, it could always be more or less prominent for any player.

Oh, by the way
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Silent Hill 2 did it first.


Edit:
Also, I think you underestimate Harry. I think a man that is willing to face the horrors he does in the name of rescuing his daughter is a pretty noble and courageous thing. Takes a real man to go that far for someone he loves. Just because he's not a boxer like Travis Grady doesn't mean he doesn't have what it takes!
Now I feel like watching rocky or something.

I actually found it really interesting the way this game explored the dynamic of an abusive relationship where the woman is the one expressing it with physical violence, and how it looks through a child's eyes.

If anybody out there knows a man who's been in this sort of relationship, you'll know that it's just as difficult, confusing and disempowering for a man to be at the receiving end of physical violence in a bad relationship as it is for a woman.

I thought the ending was interesting and laid out well and all, I just didn't like the ending because of what Dahlia was doing.
