yeah, it is very different on the narrative part.

The way it evokes fear and horror it's very much like SH1 and 2 to some extent, i think it has more SH1 than 2 on it tho.
SH2 is more poetic and shit, but way less scary, i prefer 1.

The idea of taking mundane things into horror territory, the familiarity concept, it's very present on Siren and even more than SH i think, the games go as far as taking weapons from you , making you a child or a blind person and making you navigate everyday places now turned into nightmares.

It also has some of that subtext with characters showing their ugly sides and all.

I think the PS3 Siren game left such a bad impression on people not familiar with the games, that game is so bad compared to the previous entries, SH was no better at the time tho, truly the dark ages of japanese survival horror.

Edit: Also, Siren was making this whole viral internet add stuff way before its time, did you ever get to the Hanuda website and live feeds of the island on it? it was a different time and internet was way more misterious, it felt pretty authentic, like an OG ARG.
It was definitely great and the subtle stuff that you mentioned is why I was very hyped way back then when it was rumored that SH was gonna be made by Sony in which Toyama was part of. The rumor mentioned that former SH devs would take part in development which obviously included Toyama. Now that he left Sony though, the rumor left a bad taste. Now that he is working on his own horror game, the chances of him returning for SH is basically zero.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

I loved what I played of Siren 1 on PS4, but got stuck in that stupid sequence in which you playing as the priest have to escort a young girl or teenager (with terrible AI) deep into a mountain area across several possesed riflemen and other enemies, only for her to be kidnapped during a cutscene at the end of the area and you being supposed to backtrack quick enough so you won't miss the chance of your literal ONE SHOT to caught an eye on the randomnly generated password of the lock -- all of this without any checkpoints.

Toyama you sick bastard, SCE should've shutdown the entire Japan Studio at that very moment in which you decided to take a shit on all the sacred rules of good game design.

The person at Resetera who first leaked that Silent Hill and Metal Gear are in the works and Sony is involved. They kept saying Sony would show it in the next showcase, and that announcement never came. Eventually they became a meme. I think they either left Era or was banned.
Interesting so is this Kojima or Bloober team

The original rumor was that there are multiple Silent Hill projects. Project #1 was first associated with Supermassive games, which apparently was later canceled, and now I think that's the one Bloober is working on -- just a guess.

Then there was the second AAA Silent Hill project that Sony is producing. The original rumor said that the development of that game started in Sony Japan Studios. After the restructuring, that project was moved from Sony Japan Studios to "a prominent Japanese developer". Everybody assumes that is Kojima.

If I have to guess, it's a Kojima/Sony first-party PS VR 2 exclusive Silent Hill game.

-New sh games
-metal gear remake or something
-Bloodborne remaster and bb2
I am starting to feel Sony is not that sony anymore... but they've been awfully quiet recently

I hope this is real, though I find it odd that the pic of the "I hate myself" girl's face has the word "minger", a derogatory term that I always thought was exclusively a UK thing?

Just seems like an odd choice of word - unless I'm mistaken and people in other parts of the world use it too?
I thought that. Also not heard the word used for such a long time.
