Pretty sure it was only really one day, not even really.
It seems to start off in the afternoon. At one point around the bowling alley, the fog gets tinged with the sunset. After Brookhaven, it's brutally abyss-level night. Once you leave the Historical Society it's morning.
It always seemed to me just one absurdly brutal day. But it's also Silent Hill so who the hell knows.
Thank you for the reactions. so its 1 day, 24 hours, for James atleast, for the player its much shorter depending on how much you know in silent hill for me it takes about 8 or 9 hours to finish silent hill. but in a Speed Run you can finish it in about 2 hours or less. but the first time, the time mostly got up depending on how fast you solve the puzzles, me myself, i had really not much trouble with it, but in the hospital, when you have to solve the puzzle in Room 14, i was missing the clue, the number in the isolation room i had missed.. or atleast the last number of it. so i had to go through the hospital a several times, i finally find the last number by accident, wich was in the isolation room. i had to find nothing on youtube wich i hate. expect the latest puzzle in the hotel, with the boxes.
But about the endings, if the Maria Ending suggest that James must go through Silent Hill all over, it means it takes 2 days. am i right?
If you want to imply it more positively, Maria ending could give James a chance to do what he didn't/couldn't before (properly stand by the woman he loves when she's nearing death), but it has a strong vibe of 'You must still learn your lesson' one way or the other. But, there were whole topics about that before, and I don't really have the strength to present all the options again...
I like to make James' experience ever more plausible by imagining he didn't have a proper rest when he visits Silent Hill. He killed Mary, decided to drive there after formulating a 'plan', and has been sleepless for the whole night by the time he arrives. Making things like him imaginint a letter or carelessly putting his hand into walls and toilets marginally more... believable and less awkward, I guess?
You may want to believe when you exit the hospital, the night has fallen over Silent Hill. Since most endings seem to happen at morning or evening, it would imply James has been in town for inbetween 15-40 hours, and almost certainly less than two full days.
I still sthink James has Split Personallity, but i do not think Silent Hill is evil anymore, if you look up to my first thoery, you probaly gonna laugh, never mind, i do to:p but to come back on point, James split personallity with the 2 Pyramid Heads representing them, and maria represents his heart(Not his wife!!) haha, joking., so Maybe 1 Pyramid Head represents also 12 hours, since your heart rymth is confused, time will stop or will go to slow, or to fast, i dunno, something wrong, so your mind cant follow... your guys probaly gonna call me nuts now, i only hope i dont get kipnadded and torturted by American/Russian goverment now while typing this. hahaha joke
