This is something I agree with. I think silent hill would be better served with instead of one long story but 4 to 6 shorter stories. You could cover all bases, some cult stories, some personal sin stories, some that are combat heavy (for slient hill that is) and puzzle light, or the reverse. It would go along way for being able to hold tention and mood. Also you don't even have to have the characters interact, there are multiple ways of tying them together.

I was going to say something along the lines of RE outbreak....where each character has a sort of dedicated skill, but the AI in outbreak ruins the experience...it's a shame because outbreak actually had some creepy environments. I would be able to accept something along those lines than what we're currently seeing BOM...

Oh hell to the no! Co-op makes you feel safer. I have no problem with playing with another character a little bit (like the way you play with Maria on sh2) but an entire co-op game would be a distaster. Resident Evil already turned into a co-op action horror game game, (really weak horror). if someday that ever happens to silent hill I would drink acid.

^ I could not agree with you more CL.

Just the fact that Dead Space 3 is implementing co-op makes me mad. There is way less horror when you know someone has your back.

Co-op can be enjoyable, but I can really do without it in horror games. Especially Silent Hill, because the isolation factor in much of the series has been a favorite part of it for me.

It is? :(

Edit: I've seen the trailer, no need to send it.

yes, but you leave out the fact that Dead Space 3 has a single player mode as well. The co-op mode is just for gamers that wish to experience the game with someone else. it's not like RE5 for god sakes..

anyway, I've always been up for co-op in Silent Hill, but i don't want to be forced to experience the entire journey with another gamer on the screen. as i've said before, it'd be nice if they force both players to split up often in order to solve puzzles. or maybe something happens in the game which makes each player take a different path, yet they can still communicate via 2-way radios or something.

Silent Hill doesn't need co-op. It's single player mode is already one of the best co-op games out there. Gather your friends around and have them watch someone play, trust me, it's fun!

Thank you! I'm glad the folks at Dead Space went through the extra effort to keep a single player experienence even though co-op will likely create a lot of sales.

I feel like co-op could work in Silent Hill, but they would have to completely change the game. You would need to involve both players with puzzles, and there would have to be more or tougher enemies since there is now 2 people.

I'm all for co-op to be honest with you; I've never understood the argument that "co op in horror/survival equals = bah, its not scary anymore" (I think that just means the game was never "scary" to begin with and thus the "scare factor" was largely a construct of your own creation. That and I've yet to play a Silent Hill or RE game that genuinely scares me). Most games, depending on their impact or function, have little replayability for me unless I can share the experience with someone else within the game itself. Resident Evil 5 was decidedly less frustrating and more exciting an experience because there was a co-op feature. I probably would've enjoyed RE4 more if there was an option for someone to control Ashley, Ada or Luis (even for a brief amount of time) I'm looking forward to Dead Space 3's drop in/drop out co-op (I've been content with watching someone else play it, but now the added feature actually has me interesting in playing the game myself because I can enjoy it with someone game-time).

So, yeah, co-op in a console or portal Silent Hill is something I'd love have as a opinion.

Deathmatch would be even better

You have to have a co op partner to play a game like SH. You need to have the same play styles. I would love Shill co op. I can't wait for dead space co op.

I would love a silent hill game with RPG traits, where you make your own character, and then give them a personallity, and depending on their backstory, the monsters are different and unique to that character. And give it an MP function, bingo. Silent Hill Online. Although anything over six players per campaign would be hard to do.

Um. They already kind of made a game like that, or close enough.

It's called Book of Memories.

I meant custom, as in from the ground up.

Ah. Well, I guess something with multiple choice options to build a character (like Fallout) would be kinda cool.

Although I still don't know how an MP function would work in the Silent Hill universe, considering that most of the characters are just average joes.

Well... I love co-op for some games, but I think the idea of the screen splitting every time someone walks off would destroy the immersive feel for me
