Bring it to PC and let the PC community look after this gem. Remaking it on consoles with limitations wont do it justice in 5 years time. Time less games need timeless hardware.
I did enjoy the Silent Hill trilogy. Shame its at an end. They should focus on making a new game. Afterall many Silent Hill games have been released and the better the visual upgrades they improve on, the more of the games flare it loses.

With good art direction, use of colors, bloom and mist it can give the feeling of the old game.

Low resolution and technical limitation gave the original it's feeling, a HD remaster goes against that.



not unless they remake SH1

Im not talking about a remaster, a full on remake can get the same art style. I disagree about the low res comment, playing it on an emulator, looks great. Nothing that SH2 did then couldn't be done today, the mist, the gritty graphics, all of it can be done today, by the right people.

Oh I had a feeling it was only available in physical, Thanks. 

They need to digitally release the entire series. They did with Final Fantasy 7 they should definitely do it for Silent Hill. PC is the home of horror games. I couldn't tell you how many horror games my Steam account has.



No, simply because I've literally never played a Silent Hill game, lol :P

I have to agree. The element of "what you don't see is what scares you the most" is a very important part of any horror media, not just games, and it can't really be replicated in 4k ultra High Definition. You'd probably need to change the whole artstyle to make it fit.

Well, I for one appreciate that at least one other person here gets it.

It was never about what you could see, it was about allowing your imagination, driven by the atmosphere, to fill the gaps, and that's why it worked so well.

The clearer and more detailed games become, the less room they leave for the imagination.

That doesn't make sense. You can still have amazing graphics and have a game driven by atmosphere. Silent Hill 2 is the best example of that, obviously, as this thread is about it. I mean, SH1 doesn't scare me nearly as much as the second one did and it had way worse graphics. SH2 looked beautiful and gritty with stunning lighting effects that really enhanced the dreadful mood. If these same guys made a Silent Hill for the PS4, it would look absolutely phenomenal! Once again - just look at PT even! By far one of the scariest experiences ever crafted! Absolutely mindblowing, state of the art graphics - in fact some of the best I have seen and it still has incredible atmosphere that SH is known for.

THAT is where I'm going here. :) Can't argue that, really.
