It’s Halloween and I can’t keep myself from watching all cutscenes in Silent Hill 2 (SH2), one of my most fav horror video games. Why in among all the horrors movies out there, SH2 is the only horror game which I was obsessed by its very complicated storyline and more than that, I love its disturbed theme.
Because of long time, I forgot almost its story but whenever I watch SH2 trailer on Youtube, I still feel the same way like back then.
SH2 is not a story in which you’re hero, who saves the world. No, all you have to do is save your own mind and heart. It’s about love, sex, death and redemption in whole. You gotta play it again and again and again to get every little hint, then complete a whole picture yourself. The interested point is every time you find out the meanings behind small clues, you can feel you grow up abit in mental.
The story is not for young audiences, one of the reasons is young people can’t have enough experiences to understand psychological issues. I don’t know why I can understand around 70% storyline in such a young age back then lol; that’s why I love SH2 that much.
Beside that, SH2 OST is awesome. Many gamers I know on Gamespot, Youtube and GameVN agree that fact. Just like its storyline, the songs are beautiful but also very disturbed if you listen to them nonstop. I usually got headache every time I heard them in the past; but I still love them nonetheless. If you’re afraid of disturbed creatures or haunted storyline, at least you can enjoy its wonderful OST. Ah, Theme of Laura is my most fav song of all time. But, be warned!
