I own all the SH games, and the movie. Ironicly, the only Silent Hill game I don't care much for is SH1.
I guess it's because I played all of them except Shattered Memories before I played the first one, cause it's harder to get.
So when I finally played it I wasn't really impressed... the later ones seemed less tedious. Partly I admit it's because of the PS1 graphics... after playing the PS2 games where you see the grotesque environments in full detail, playing SH1 the environments didn't really seem very impressive. The monsters also weren't as interesting because of this.
If I had played SH1 when it was in its prime, before I played the others, I probably would have better feelings towards it. My first Silent Hill game was SH2... and it's definitely my favorite.
Shattered Memories is very different... my sister, for one, didn't really like how they changed it. I love it though. The whole "run, don't fight" thing works well for SH I think. It's called a "reimagining" of SH1 but it's really just a whole new game, with a whole new story, that has the same characters.... sort of like an alternate reality SH1.
I originally planned on buying it for the PS2, but I'm really glad I got it for the Wii instead... it's the first game I played where I really appreciate the Wii-mote motion control.
LOL long post my bad, I get all excited about Silent Hill xDD
Oh, not a whole lot. Just dabbling on the internet and trying not to get any sicker than I already am by the weekend. ^^;
That and trying to work on this birthday present. ::Sighs:: I'm such a procrastinator.
