The Silent Hill games have been among the few survival horror games that have kept continuing. Konami carries on the franchise with Silent Hill: Shattered Memories which is the seventh instalment and also the first time in the series to appear on a Nintendo console.
If you have played the very first Silent Hill, you will find that you are more familiar with the story for Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. This seventh instalment is not so much a remake, but more of a re-imagined version that plays differently from the rest of the series.
The story begins like the first game where you play as Harry Mason. Harry wakes up from a car accident only to find his daughter, Cheryl, missing in a mysterious and creepy town called Silent Hill. The game’s story is told through a series of interactive cutscenes with a psychiatrist who asks you to do certain tasks, which then lead back into the game again. However, depending on the choice you make on certain tasks, your gaming experience will change. No two players have the same experiences playing this game as the game shapes itself towards your personality.
I graduated from Bradford University in 2006 training in Animation and special effects. I have a massive love for animation and especially in games. I currently train with AnimationMentor, the Animators from Pixar and Disney. I also train as a martial artist, Tang so do, Tai chi and Capoeria, which is probably why most of my interest in films and games are usually action and fighting related. I really enjoy Manga movies (such as Fist of the North Star) and action movies such as Equilibrium, Matrix Trilogy, Blade, Night Watch, Drive, Hitman, Troy and Underworld. I’m also a big fan of psychological films such as Memento and Irreversible too. I have been playing games since I was little, first ever games console was a Super Nintendo with Street Fighter 2. Since then I have been completely loyal to Nintendo and have owned every Nintendo console, including the rare Nintendo watch, to date. My main interests are action games such as Smash Bros, Tekken and Mario Kart, however I do also like games which lean more towards good storylines such as Metal Gear Solid.
