Bloody hell that brings back some memories! Really enjoyed these videos Phelous, been way too long since I played these games. Also happy to see someone else feels the same loathing and hatred towards Dahlia as I do.
It’s a shame the series has gone astray (I’m looking at you Homecoming!), I just hope the next installment brings that ‘Silent Hill’ atmosphere back….but I’m not holding my breath.
Great finale. I loved the entire series, good job Phelous.
Cool series phelous. Silent hill was great. i for myself played 1 and 4 and 3 ’til the hospital, it think. Definately past the fight with the missionary (really enjoyed killing this bastard, for what he did). But all in all 3 just scared the shit out of me, so i never had the guts to finish it :P. Also i spoilerd myself by watching the end-sequences on youtube and thought they sucked, but that’s probably i don’t know what exactly happens ’till then.
A LP of SH3 would be awesome as an upcoming project. Espacially to show how Heather/Allessa/Cheryl’s story concludes.
Also, ever considered doing a review of Dead Snow, that norwegian nazi-zombie splatter-movie? Well it’s probably too new, i haven’t looked your up your cut-off-date, if you have any. But this film is definately one that would fit you well. It has every bad horror-clichee in it, from unsympatic (at least ’till the very end) characters to a pointless sex-scene.
Anyway, keep up the good work, you’re probably my favorite canadian 🙂
Nigh, Dahlia. It’s spelled nigh. Not neigh. Or maybe it’s neigh because you’re a horse-faced wench, that’s plausible.
Anyway, great LP. Hadn’t actually ever played SH1 so nice to see the entirety of it with some Phelous commentary.
Having never played Silent Hill in any form, its been a real treat watching these vids. Plus all the extra stuff you added just makes it more fun. I probably would go back and play them but I think the limitations of the hardware would drive me nuts.
Thanks for doing this LP, Phelan. It’s been a lot of fun watching you play – how much you love the game really shows. I’ve enjoyed the singing, the constant quoting of the dialogue, and your stories about playing it so many times. Damn that ambulance ending! Plus being Silent Hill, the game never really spoonfeeds the plot – there’s a lot that they leave up to interpretation.
Speaking of which, I’ve never been clear on Alessa’s age. How old was she when the burning happens? Is she meant to be 7 like the newspaper in the PAL version says? That would put her at 14 during the game since Cheryl just turned 7 last month, but when she’s in her schoolgirl outfit she looks more like 19 or so to me, and like you said, she looks even older than that lying in bed with the bandages on.
I had a great time watching this and what a great way to start off the new year! Like I said in earlier comments on this LP, I hope maybe you’ll do another LP in the future. Seems like SH3 would be a great one to do back to back with this one.
I saw Silent Hill on the Playstation Network for $5.99 so I’ll probably be picking it up due to your review (since I never got to have a personal copy, just borrowed from friends).
Silent Hill 3 is the direct sequel and only takes like 2-3 hours. So if he were to LP it, it will probably be much shorter than this one !
I actually didn’t like Silent Hill 2 that much. Wasn’t so much of a bad game … but the gameplay itself as well as the “horror” factor were much worse than in the first and third installment of the series. The Labyrinth scenario is a good example on that. Some say it represented something in the lifes of the protagonists; but even if this IS the case, it still annoyed the hell out of me. Not to mention the way you get different endings starts to become stupider with SH2. Saving Kaufmann and Cybill felt like you did some difference in the story !
i love this game so much <3
wow silent hill 3 is my favorite honestly. (if you couldn't tell by my ultra awesome heather icon :B )SEXY BEAAAAM!!! *shot* >.>
I hope this means silent hill 2 is next<3 so many memory's...
Silent hill3 though. *crosses fingers* hopeingggg <3
If you did a Let’s Play of Silent Hill 3. PLEASE. Oh gosh, I enjoyed these so much, you have no idea. I’ve wtached them more than a few times. To see a LP of 3? It would make my entire life better. Just something to think about, to get your mind off of crappy horror films. 😉
I liked the ending. It felt like… after a hurricane of fear, rage, and hatred, there comes a feeling of determined triumph, followed by a shimmer of hope, then muffled tension, and finally a gentle contentment. Like after a volcano eruption, when everything is scorched and desolate, there’s a layer of fertile ash on the ground that will bring forth new sprouts.
Please Play SH3!!! I need to know more about the story of silent hill but I am too scared to play them myself and you being so knowledgeable helps me to understand the story more than I ever could have if I was trying to understand on my own. Thanks for all the hard work and Great Job!!!
Thank you so much for this great LP! I loved the final thoughts during the credits, and well, all of the bits you threw in here and there to make it your own. I share a lot of your opinions on these games. I can’t decide if I like 1 or 3 too. 3 is just so polished and has so much extra, but like you said, the first game really started it all. Resident Evil is great and everything but Silent Hill just got to me so much more. Harry is such a likeable character too. I would really like to see you do a LP of part 3, I really bet I’m the first person to say that to you.
I enjoyed your commentary and LP of Silent Hill. I had played the first 3 long ago, so it was nice to go back and see SH1 again with your input. Like what everyone has been saying, a Silent Hill 3 LP would be awesome too in the future. Thank you.
