Yes I own them LOL.
Silent Hill is predictable beyond belief. And very basic.
ALan Wake has a much better writer and is much tighter in its storytelling.
Also much much much more clever.
much much much more clever... tel you what buddy. Leave the evaulation of writing to us okay? :)
Alan Wake was actually pretty good, but was definately more predictable than Silent Hill 2 (1 and 3 I'll give you are predictable too). It was also a shameless mish-mash of various Steven King Maine based stories with Twin Peaks format.
The only horror game I've ever played that felt like horror was Silent Hill 2. Although to be fair Remedy themselves position AW as a thriller and not as horror, which is more appropriate TBH.
Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...
