When it rains it downpours...

I spent most of the day watching a walkthrough of Silent Hill Downpour and I have to say it was better than I expected.  I thought it would be a big mess much like the truck dude story and Silent Hill Mammaries, but it was surprisingly creepy and I have to say that I am a little afraid of the dark now (a sign of a good survival horror game).  Right now I'm on part 25 of 36 and I'm terrified for my life.  I'm not sure what's going on (because I'm writing this), but the sounds coming from Youtube are really scary.  I am dreading having to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.  I mean even though the bathroom is in our bedroom, its still kinda dark (we have a nightlight) and creepy.

I think this is going to be the last part for tonight, cause I can't take the creepiness.  I hear some little kid giggling, which is ALWAYS a bad sign in a horror game or movie.  It usually means a monster is about to pop out of nowhere and I don't think I can take anymore scary stuff tonight.

But the new Silent Hill is pretty creepy, I was a bit skeptical, but not anymore.  Oh and while it is creepy, its still missing something, I'm not sure what that something is, but its missing a little something.  Maybe its the soundtrack by Akira Yamaoka I don't know, but it still isn't super digging mega deep into your mind scary like SH 2.  And I still hate that when you enter Otherworld, you still have that paint pealing effect.  Can we please wrap that up now?!
