    My favorite Junji Ito story is the one he did about his cats.

    Uzumaki isn't even his worse. I haven't read all of them but even fucking Gyo messed me up. I think Hellstar Remina is my favorite though.

    I wish instead of shattered memories they remade the first Silent hill. I'm tired of the combatless horror games

    Don't know what people were expecting. PT can no longer exist in a playable form because it promotes a game that isn't being made.

    Well I wasn't expecting them to sabotage a playable demo via software update like that. Kinda took the amount of control I have over my data on PC for granted but goddamn, consoles suck bro.

    It took quite a bit of inspiration from SH4's apartment levels. The twitchy ghost, the bloody fridge with a lump of flesh (which, in PT, splintered into a bloody fridge and the weird fetus thing in the sink), the peephole, the radio broadcasts about a string of violent murders which then address you directly (in 4 you had the radio about the murders, and a telephone haunting which would also address you). Even the concept of returning to the same place over and over again was in 4, in the form of the rusted bloody key that would trap you in the forest world until you went back to your apartment.

    However, PT was very polished and knew how to get under your skin, whilst a few of the hauntings in 4 were too goofy to be scary.

    But a lot of the hype about PT came from the mystery surrounding it. It looked like a triple A game that was just randomly dumped onto the system, without an explanation, without a clear way to beat it. This aura that surrounded it was the biggest seller. There is no chance in hell they'd have captured the same atmosphere in a fully open, 10+ hour game. Even the concept trailer looked a notch or two below the teaser.

    Don't worry, I'm sure at least 6 new fan projects just sprung up to remake the PT demo again in response to this.

    Oh great can't wait for Hideo Kojima to fuck up Silent Hill and make out of it even worse game than what western devs did by totally not understanding themes, lore and why people loved those games. He already proved that with PT and his hollywood style version of SH which isn't SH.

    Yeah, I can understand people still getting excited for his take pre-Death Stranding, but not after. Not that I mind DS, but his style will never synchronize with Silent Hill

    Konami should have sold this IP, already.
    They butchered the chances of a successful movie franchise - the first movie was not bad, not at all - with Silent Hill Revelation 3D, and they lost their magic with the games, so just stop milking the deceased cow, already.
    The world of Pachinko won't suffer greatly, if they lose this IP ownership.
    They can make Metal Gear themed Pachinko machines, a remake of the units they already created, with better graphics. It would be less retardo than creating a sequel to Metal Gear Survive, I dare to say.
