Downpour is superior in pretty much every category in my opinion.
I have to agree, besides story, atmosphere, and overall creep factor. Everything else in Downpour is better.
That's just my opinion though. I would stick to Downpour since you played 4 already. I do adore SH4 for nostalgia reasons though, so it's hard for me to say that. lol If you can, just get both.
Well i mean,in a silent hill game, what else is there? Those are some of the most important things. I mean don't get me wrong, i agree. But what's left that downpour does better? Controls, graphics, less tedious?
I may try forcing myself to replay downpour sometime just to actually beat it(yeah i got to the last boss and didn't care enough to beat it, and traded back to gamestop for uncharted 3 because they were about to close and i didn't wanna be stuck with that shitty game), but it was so damn boring and annoying to me. SH4 was also really annoying to me at certain parts too, i definitely remember getting frustrated with it. But the difference is, it actually had some parts that were really creepy and had great atmosphere, while downpour was just bland to the point that i completely stopped caring, there wasn't much motivation for me because everything was so damn boring and weak. I was never really like "damn i wonder what the next area is gonna be like" or "what kind of creepy shit am i gonna see next" like i was with sh4.
