Hi everyone

I'm a UK film-maker and long-time Silent Hill fan. I have fond memories of playing SH2 in a dark, locked room of a university, where I worked as a night-shift security guard many years ago. The perfect environment to play my first SH game. Loved that world ever since.

I'm a huge fan of horror games, especially of the indie kind, and am currently Kickstarting a documentary to profile the best ones, including Silent Hill (Konami are on-board the project, as of yesterday!).
I want to raise funding so that I can interview many of the people behind the Silent Hill games and other survival horror developers, to make the definitive film about horror gaming - http://kck.st/1f1qMOY

Keen to hear what people's favourite games are, and who they'd most like to see interviewed. :)

That. Is. Awesome. My favorite SH game is probably 2. It would be cool if you could interview Akira or Ito.

And welcome! Beware of the aliens. If you find any UFOs, take a picture and let me know. :mira:

Glad you like the sound of it!
They'd be my choices too. I was listening to the extended SH 2 soundtrack yesterday, still sounds amazing. :)

Now that I'm on my comp, I'm going to expand on my SH favorites. Since it's so hard for me to say which game specifically I like the most I kind of split it in categories. SH2 is my favorite game in terms of storyline and characters. The depth of the story and the characters is a level, I feel, no other game has reached. SH3 was the most fun of them, and Heather is probably one of my favorite protagonists. SH4 has the best antagonist, and my favorite antagonist in the history of gaming. Oh, and it's the hardest in my opinion, and most unnerving. SH5 has the best monster design. And Shattered Memories is the best in terms of uniqueness and originality. Oh, and it has a whole quest dedicated to the aliens/UFOs, sooo.... :lol: Oh, and Mira.

Oh! And Silent Hill 2 definitely has one of the best soundtracks. Alone in the Town and Terror in the Depths of Fog are my two favorite SH songs. ^o^ Alone in the Town is like my theme song.

Thanks for the welcome!
SH2 has such a unique feel to it, great sense of loneliness and impending doom. SH3 is enjoyable, and is still a great-looking game, and one of the best soundtracks. Shockingly I've yet to play Shattered Memories, although my friend Dissolved (composer and co-producer on my film) is a big fan. Really hope I get the chance to meet some of the people behind Silent Hill.
