I played only the second game of Silent Hills and I thought it was excellent. Having a game resolve around guilt and subcounscious was brillant. I never played 1, 3 and 4 and I wondered...are they worth it? I seriously think Silent Hill is more creepy than Resident Evil because of the psychological touch it brings....and everytime I play it I feel like tainted....or something is going wrong with my mind. I have heard of Silent Hill 1, 2 and 4 but I am left with many questions that I think many of you can answer... ***SPOILER ALERT**** 1- In silent hill 1, the town became this way because of the power of Samael right? But in silent hill 2, from what I can understand is that Silent Hill have become a twisted reflexion of James's mind (Power with the remaining power of samael and the guilt he had over the death of his wives). Which theory is true? 2-Did James survived the even of silent hill 2? If not, which ending is the real one? 3-In silent hill 1, there was this nurse, Lisa Garland I think.....what's her story..is she a ghost or something? 4-What's the connection of silent Hill 4 to all the other games? 5-In Silent hill 3, Heather is in fact Cheryl reborn (well Alessa in fact). Henry Masson (hero of the first one) get killed by pyramid head ordered by Claudia......but why? Why did he had to die? 6-In the bad ending of silent hill 1, we see a short CG of Henry, still in his car accident after the car accident from the beggining. Does that mean....that all he did in Silent hill was in his head and he was...dreaming??? 7- In silent hill 2, James said his wife died 3 years ago but it is hinted in the game sthat only a week passed (WTF???). Is this true? Is James mentally sick like the rest of the other character? 8-There is a rumor that James was one of the patient in the mental hospital...is this true? 9-Is Frank Sunderland in Silent hill 4 related to James Sunderland? If yes...does he knows what happened to James? 10- Who is the woman talking in the confessional booth in silent hill 3? ****SPOILER ENDS***** Compared to Residnet Evil....the plot is not really explained at all in this serie.... Though I love this story as much as it scares me out (YEAH IT FREAKS ME OUT!!!) I want to understand it but I can't find the games anywhere.... can anyone help me understand the plot? So many questions....... Thanks in advance!
