Excerpt: While watching horror films are fun ways to spend an evening, it has been many years since one of them has given me any kind of fright. Then around Halloween time the local rednecks get all decked out and overtake some abandoned factory and turn into a haunted house of some kind. Sure, its fun taking a big group of people who get scared easily through, but youre usually left feeling disappointed.
Excerpt: Well, what can I say? Once again, we are thrust back into the sleepy, creepy world of Silent Hill. Or are we? Actually, this time, it takes place in a town near Silent Hill called Ashfield, but trust me, it's still the same type thing you know and love. If you haven't played any of the previous Silent Hill games, don't worry. It isn't necessary, but if you have, you'll recognize certain areas such as Lake Toluca and names such as Alessa.
Excerpt: I got hooked on this series with Silent Hill 3, though I had always been a fan of horror survival games. Unlike horror movies where you yell at your television telling the characters not to do something stupid, in a game, your fate is your own. Third person gaming is perfect on a console system, and the controls need only be fairly simple since the game mostly survives on its storyline and its ability to creep players out.
