I've beat this game a couple of times, and yesterday when I writing my walkthrough I thought about something that didn't really fit the others.

Click for spoilers;
[spoiler]In the Male Seclusion wing in the Sanitarium, you get to observe the rooms of 5 different patients. It's obvious that in room 1, the patient was addicted to cutting themselves. Room 2, obviously the patient here had an obsession with fire. Room 4 was barred shut, so they had to be a psyco and in room 5, there was an aneroxic that refused to eat food.
My questions is that when you observe room 3, there's a nice dress on a dummy and empty hat boxes. Then, in the Infirmary you see that the doll is nicely dressed which doesn't fit the others. If these patients had some sort of mental problems what type of problem could the patient in room 3 possibly have? He seems pretty normal to me.

Anyone have a good idea about what his problem was?[/spoiler]

well seeing how it is in a male seclusion room and you see womens clothing aperfume, what does that tell you? Just think of the villian (name not coming to me) from silence of the lambs.

Ooo! That's a really good point. I completely missed the perfume.
But on the doll he was dressed pretty masculine. He kinda reminded me of one of those renaissance horse riders. Lol.
I'm just thinking that maybe he was obsessed with his dead wife or something, since he didn't really look like he was dressed like a lady. & Even if he was gay or something, I don't think it really measures up with the other patients in there.
Idk, something still doesn't fit right.

And didn't the doll where you put the pills in their mouth have some type of make up on? I'm not suggesting that he's gay, but in a small town like silent hill (especially from the 70's) crossdressing would be frowned upon

Well, you have to keep the time period in mind, I think. There are all sorts of types of cross-dressing, from heterosexuals engaging in transvestic fetishism, to drag/transvestism and transgendered people. These days, the taboos don't extend into the medical realm, but back then they definitely would have....

I thought about that, but his makeup seemed more like clownlike. Not womanlike. So i'm still a bit confused.

Perhaps he treated the doll he dressed as a real person?

I figured that he had some sort of dissociative identity/Norman Bates thing going on-- that when he was wearing women's clothes, in his head, he was a woman.

Hmm, good tips guys.
I'm pretty sure he's a psyco crossdresser now.
That works.

Anyone else notice the dress looks kind of like Mary's...?

But anyway, I think the guy was a psycho cross-dresser...

I noticed that sometimes there's a poker stuck in the dressform and sometimes there isn't. But I could never figure out what I was doing differently.

Hmm, i'm probably going to post my walkthrough on gamefaqs.com at first. So you can check for it there. I'm still in the Theatre part though. I'm making sure that I don't miss anything.

I don't think he was JUST a crossdresser, since cross-dressing isn't a mental illness. I could perhaps a guy thinking he was a mommy, and the doll was his baby girl :D

Remember: mid-seventies. Everything was connoted as a mental illness.

I didn't really see a doll. All I saw was one of those dummy thingies that you put clothes on, and hat boxes. So I might be missing something.

He was obviously a crossdress.. and i agree that in the 70's everything was considered a mental illness. Also it could be that this person perhaps commited a murder while dressed as a woman, similar to Norman Bates.

Beat me to it.

In that time period, it was ok to treat homosexuals, gender confused, and even masterbation as mental illneses. I have read through a small handful of cases from the seventies of parents putting their teens into mental hosiptals to try and "cure" these "diseases" and them finding out that many harsh "treatments" were used like, hydrothrapy and electro-shock thrapy. So he fit into this part of the game with the others, very well.
