There’s a new demo out there called “PT” – you can find it only for the PS4. Turns out it’s a demo for the UPCOMING SILENT HILL GAME OH MY GOD I AM SO EXCITED I MUST NOW TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!!!
…okay. I’m okay. It’s fine.
In any case, I watched someone play through the demo a little bit in this video here:
and here’s what I have to say:
THIS GAME IS BEAUTIFUL. The graphics are fantastic, the atmosphere is killer (ha ha see what I did there), and they’ve done a great job at nailing one of the things I associate with Silent Hill – ridiculous sounds that totally mess with you.
Here’s the downside: It’s first-person. I know it’s not going to be a problem for a lot of people (and frankly I know some that prefer first person games) but I really like third-person better. FP may be better in terms of the atmosphere and be more realistic in terms of achieving scariness (we can’t normally see everything in a room at the same time) – but I find that I’m prone to motion sickness when playing first person, especially before I or whoever else is playing get the hang of the controls.
Maybe they’ll give a third-person option. In either case I’m likely to purchase it when it comes out, assuming that I have a PS4 available to me at that point.
What do you think? Are you as excited as I am?
