Out of all the Western-made Silent Hills, Downpour is the best of the bunch. It comes the closest in terms of psychological scares and impact.
Quincy Loomans
Wow, right on time. Finished watching all the other videos about the silent hill series just the other day. Sweet, thanks!

I'VE BEEN WAITING SOOOO LONG FOR THIS!! :D

The thing that helped kill this game was the terrible framerate stuttering. Pre patch it was like a slideshow.
DJDTHTRP
Just finished watching the series and I see Downpour in the sidebar. WHAT TIMING.
BIO out
The last and final main Silent Hill Game that alas went out with a wimper but was soooo worth the bang! This is my favorite HD 3D Silent Hill ever and will always remain the best Ending to series. I love you Downpour *wipes tears* I'll never forget you.
Courtney Sibley
I honestly loved this Silent Hill. I don't know why so many people dislike it so much. It's different, sure. It's still good though. Just my opinion though. Haha.

In the best ending it is also explained that Murphy couldn't kill Napier. He attacked him, but when it came to the part that cuts out in the intro, he couldn't do it. Sewell had to finish him off. After watching I looked up something about Daniel Licht and found out he died last month of cancer. Sad to lose someone so talented who was also respectful enough to understand that the music of Silent Hill was just as important in the game as the visual atmosphere, monsters, and story. Having a long history composing for horror movies didn't hurt either.
MegaChilcott
Honestly, I feel that this game would have done better if wasn't a Silent Hill game. I mean if it was it's own original idea instead of these mixed ideas of hodgepodge baby hill poop. it's really sad because Murphy is somewhat charismatic character but came off as an idiot. 13:41 TLDR If i had the opportunity to fix this game, i would've kept the prison theme, remove silent hill and have Murphy in the woods killing monsters until he relized that he was fucked in the head.
adam kinkead
It a weird entry in the series but honestly I love it I'm probably the only weirdo out there who does lol
Kat Mistress of the Dark
Make the P.T video next! :D

this game wasnt as scary as the other silent hill games, that i have to agree, but it certainly was similar to silent hill 2 in some ways, which actually made this game a lot better than the previous installments in the series such as origins and homecoming. Had it not suffered the horrible framerate issues and save related problems , this game wouldve been a 8/10 rated game atleast. i sometimes think people just ignore the gameplay and plot of this game and just say its bad cuz of its technical flaws . and thats kinda sad, honestly i really enjoed this game, and the additions of so many side quests made it eve more fun
John Anthony Brizuela
Thank you I love this game

Why does the protagonist look sort of like Todd Howard?

Do the fatalframe saga

I literally had to pause the video just to make this one little comment..... "Konami knows best, I guess?" *Looks at cancelled Silent Hills game, then looks at MGS zombie edition, and finally at the SH and MGS pachinko machines.* Hmmmmm.......
Ghost
Honestly this game was not very fun.
Heshi
Thank you for finishing the series and doing Downpour! One of my favorites SHs behind SH2 :)
Starfig
I really, really like this game. It had such good atmosphere. Some truly scary or eerie parts.
Certified Scott
As much as I like this game, it needed more time in development. So much potential to have been a classic installment with some refinements. Unlikely we'll ever see a remaster either.
Philip Marsh
I loved what they did with the streets of Silent Hil. I thought it looked good and kinda reminded me of Silent hill one. But the story and gameplay was one of the worse, second only to shattered memories
dead fox
sad we already knows that silent hill game is dying...
RATchael
Downpour was fun for open map it's really not a bad game story its short. I enjoyed goof off more than the other games, I remembered giving names to the each weapon. The main one are Steve and Bruce, Steve was the axe. Bruce was the pickaxe he was very funny. 😂 Good times... I playing with my friend.
XxDrJewxX
This game makes no sense, its bad. If you dont believe me, watch The real silent hill experience by TwinPerfect, they go trough each game and explain them also, its a 2 hour video dissecting the game so if you have time i recommend it. Either way great video man.
Carlos Alexie
I liked this game despite its flaws. This is my 2nd favorite SH game right after 3.

Why you didn't point on that you're just translate this video? Please write that in description or just return logo of stopgame.ru in top-right corner

This one is so underrated
MBSonia
You're doing amazing job, I don't even ask how much time you spend to do each episode. Thank you for what you doing.
Ahmed Raad
This game is a freaking mess if he doesn't kill the cop or the criminal or ann why in the hell he is in silent hill in the first place just stupid
revan21
I recently bought this game along with the HD Collection (My Ps2 is broken so I can't play the originals) and some other games at Game Stop. Decided to play it a few days ago when it started raining. That was the first Silent Hill game for and I had fun for the most part. Fighting these Bat Monsters in the caves was kinda frustrating but the rest was fine. I'll probably wait untill October and finish SH 2 & 3 before continueing tho.

Five years ago. It's been that long.

I enjoy the fact that the boogeyman is just some dude in an s10 gas mask and a hazmat suit.

I was waiting for this! I'm sad it's ending though

The game would've been better had Vatra spent longer developing the script. They created this amazing backstory for Murphy - one of the best, in my opinion - but the game's present narrative meanders and feels really disjointed. More elements should've weaved into or reflected Murphy's backstory.
Rob Lenton Lenton
I played a bit of Downpour. The presentation looked nice as well as the graphics and layout of Silent Hill. The gameplay was poor as well as the combat and the monsters were in very poor taste, wasnt scary and lacked meaning. I wasnt happy and sold the game
Daryl Atkinson
If you ever want to review the spinoffs, definitely try to emulate the Silent Hill Orphan games, they're short but good
Ricko chett
Keep it up dude you do a great job of explaining things. Your voice is clear, concise and you do a great job of keeping me interested in your videos

Personally I liked Silent Hill Downpour and the Boogeyman...
Jon Murphy
I actually really enjoyed Downpour, especially all the side quests and the free roam
Bigngreen
Did you get contracted or something?
Jonathan Thorne
the screamers killed this game for me. I played it thru, and I'd wished they made the next sh game but if hope for more monster variety. it certainly says something that for such a small company they stuck to be original and didn't try and mimic silent hill 2 and 3 success. nice try.
bana nana
dude I'm loving your work man. Please do more history of the series from more horror games like fatal frame, alone in the dark

What about Silent Hills PT?

The soundtrack of this game was amazing!
nintendoluigi
Once I saw the birthday ending, I at least warmed up to this game... it just seems like it was too much for a small developer and Konami probably didn't give them proper funding either. It definitely had interesting ideas, and could have been really good if handled in a different way with proper funding.... but alas Konami seems like they just want Silent Hill to die... they have for years.

Game is COMPLETE trash

The Bogeyman bossfight was such a goddamn shame. Seriously? Three headshots and press "x" to win on HARD difficulty? The first monster encounter on EASY was harder than that, man.
Kos4Evr
why is it the last one which seems to pay the most homage to the first 2 games in the series? This has a parallel to Pyramid Head without being lazy and just using Pyramid head and like Silent Hill 2 it feels relevant to the character you play. Also like Silent Hill 2 it doesn't focus on the cult so much as the idea that Silent Hill creates your own personal hell. Yet still it has the recurring character of a female police officer as in Silent Hill 1.It also borrows elements from Silent Hill 4: the Room in its ability to use melee weapons as tools for manipulating your environment. It borrows the themes of guilt from Silent Hill 2 and revenge from Silent Hill 3. To be fair the early Silent Hill games weren't about bosses so much as surviving the world. So in this way it feels closer to the early games than it does to the later games. That "should" be a good thing. I mean even Origins tried to tie into the "greater narrative" while telling its own story. I don't really know what I can say about Homecoming as it pertains to Downpour and Shattered Memories is best not mentioned at all. Not a bad addition to the series and yet like all of the games after Silent Hill 3 it fails to really stand out.
Vincent Staples
Please do Silent Hills!!! I know that Silent Hills was an unfinished game but could you make a video about that one too?
N
Assassin's creed series history or MGS or maybe RE ? I know their history but I want to see you do it .
MyLostTemple
Downpour was better than that overrated SH2.
Commander Von Pussy Hagen
*Downpour is the biggest PILE OF SHIT* out of all the games following Silent Hill 4. The only thing worse was Book of Memories, but we don't talk about that game now do we? lol

How come nobody touches on the voice acting? This game is like the only one (other than shattered memories, but that's another canon) that actually does voice acting right. The voice acting in ALL the other ones are CRINGY at best and BORDERLINE BAD at worst. Also Murphy's screams are akin to the screams of a real person going through that shit.
mthwr
Man i just watched your hole videos about silent hill and i would love to see this on another game ahem *resident evil* your voice script are amazing bro keep up the great work ♡
James Farr
These are awesome. Really enjoying them.
felman87
So, what's next? Are you going to another Horror game? Resident Evil, perhaps? Or maybe you want to do single, one-off movies. Eternal Darkness only has one entry, that would be interesting.
Will Kallao
This is the strongest post-Team Silent game in my opinion. While I think the story is a bit murky and the conclusion is an absolute disaster with nothing being concrete, it provided a really great set of environments for the player to explore, and the motif of water is really interesting! The monsters (minus the Doll ) are pretty bland and to human in nature, but I love the Otherworld being completely independent from the Fog World. I wish we got to swap between Murphy and Anne though. The UV light is a really neat addition too! It's not amazing by any means, but it is stronger than Origins (which I find to be nothing but a copy + paste of the other Silent Hills), and Homecoming (which has such an absurd story, but really great environments) and Shattered Memories, which I just find very boring.
Scortex
Hey GGC, I really love your videos so far! There is only one thing I would like to mention. You say the phrase "after that" a LOT. Maybe try to add some phrases so that it doesn't sound so repetative, that would make them even better!

Loved this series, btw.

I also loved the side quests of this, they were absolutely scary like the abandoned cinema. Also loved seen the silent hill 4 cameo.

I love these videos. They're very insightful. Thanks for all your hard work and sharing your thoughts!

Хоть и написано, что это пока секрет, история какой серии будет после. Но было бы неплохо если бы это был RE от того же Гальперова, или история RockstarGames, которая всё ещё в процессе. Таких подробных и качественных историй на английском просто нет.

Another great video! So many great explanations and are very in depth. Thank you!
Why youtube why
Silent hill was never a considered a flagship triple A, its original development team was made up of Konamis "B team" who became team silent. The original series was too psychologically intense of a horror game to become as popular as Resident Evil and turned many people away that left only die hard fans as its core players. After the financial failure of the 4th installment, team silent was disbanded and the series was assigned to third party developers from then on. The series lost touch with itself and with and exception of shattered memories they progressively got worse. The biggest problem with the later series was the monster design. They just weren't scary and almost became comedic at some points. There was a glimpse of hope when P.T. was announced but then Konami pulled the plug and started making pachinko machines. True story.
FireIdar
The wall guys are just the near-identical enemies from the Shadowman game!!!
Lucas Fernandez
graphic downgrade, no Akira Yamaoka music so.....no music whatsoever, lame use of a pseudo-open world map and lame map overall, no atmosphere whatsoever, uncreative enemies, ununderstandable plot and pointless after you learn what's about, worst combat system in the franchise, pointless secondary missions which all consiste in freed a ghost, soulless characters, those and other more is the reason why this game IS NOT a Silent Hill.
Porco-Dio FIlm
Such ham fisted, heavy handed symbolism. Really hard not to roll your eyes at it. As a game though, it's not *horrible* but it's definitely a bad Silent Hill game.
Brodie Crain
No ailen ending?
LaraCrotte59
Thank you so much !!! You describe everything about this beautiful game ^^ Nice job <3

Absolute amazing work. Can't wait for Resident Evil maybe 😂
