Townfall and F are the ones that look the most interesting to me to be honest. Annapurna has a great track record as a publisher and the developers' previous games, Stories Untold and Observation, were both pretty good. F looks like it has a pretty intriguing aesthetic and its writer seems to have a good reputation as a Virtual Novel writer (which is an extremely low bar to be fair). The studio developing F is pretty unknown though. The thing I like most about both of these is that, at least at first glance, it looks like they have pretty much no connection to Silent Hill or any of the previous games. This is especially the case for F, being set in Japan. It sort of looks like Konami's trying to make the Silent Hill brand a sort of vehicle for publishing a diverse set of horror games unconnected to the main franchise, which I completely approve of since it means they'll maybe stop ruining the legacy of the original four games as much.
There's also Ascension, some live-interaction stream-based thing published by Bad Robot. Might be interesting, probably won't be. There's also a movie adaptation of Silent Hill 2 coming out. I very much doubt it'll be very good, but I'm at least happy that Christophe Gans gets to make the movie, since he's wanted to for years at this point.
The Silent Hill 2 Remake makes me feel the complete opposite, and I honestly have absolutely zero interest in this one. Why would you even want to remake Silent Hill 2? It's graphics have held up incredibly well, and it's slightly awkward combat only helps to build tension. You can even turn off tank controls if you're one of those people who gets filtered by that. From the little snippets of gameplay they've shown, it looks like they've given it third-person gameplay, which already damages a lot of the atmosphere of the original as it means that the fixed camera angles are out. Even more egregiously, there was one shot in there showing that it has dodge mechanics now, which makes me pretty worried that the combat system is going to be a repeat of whatever Homecoming was doing. Honestly, despite all this the game may very well end up being good, but I still have zero intention of playing a worse version of one of the best games ever made. A remake can only detract from what made Silent Hill 2 good tbh. Out of the original four games, I'd say that the only one that might
be improved by a remake is The Room, just because that game isn't designed very well and hasPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
