Let me jump on the Silent Hill band wagon.
Oh… my… God!
I had no idea what to expect. A friend of mine just handed me the game and said, “Dude, you gotta play this.”
So I did.
Yes, it’s kinda scary with the flying things and and all of that, but when the nice, foggy world, uh, changes… it just tripped me out! It seriously put me into this weird frame of mind. I actually felt different. What can I say - it affected me.
Actually, the weirdest thing happened to me: One night, while I was playing it and was stuck in the nightmare world, I decided I had had enough, so I shut the game off and went to sleep. So the next morning (I get up around 5:00am - so it’s totally dark outside - the mood is set), as I left my apartment to go to work, but I forgot that my apartment complex decided to re-paint the hallways - so it being 5:00am, and not really remembering this, when I opened my door, all the hallways were stripped of their normal, familiar wall paper, leaving this very dark, odd-looking, musty-smelling, runny brownish residue all over the place. This was not my regular hallway… I WAS IN THE NIGHTMARE WORLD!!!
Totally tripped me out!
All I needed was for one of those little black, chirping, baby ghosts to walk by and I would have completely lost it!
