Just started playing the Room. Holy shit are the controls awful.

Fuck are you serious? I was really looking forward to getting and playing that game.

Reminder.

>Homecoming was suppose to a trilogy
>Old characters like Heather, Henry, and Laura(who was Elle) were suppose to return
>Pyramid Head was suppose to have a much larger role
>The finale would have Josh and Alessa having a "Super Saiyan" battle over Toluca lake with Josh controlling water and Alessa controlling Fire

>Origins was suppose to be a dark comedy inspired by the TV show "Scrubs"

>Downpour in early development was suppose to have Murphy be an definite criminal and it had an American Psycho quality to it, described as "What if Patrick Bateman was loose in Silent Hill?"
>>
>>323257639
um have you played silent hill 2?

The Room has the most shit controls and annoying /broken enemies.

I wish Downpour had inspired enemy design, I liked exploring the town, it was, dare I say immersive. But as soon as a one of the two monsters that went away.

I've been able to play 1-3 with the same keyboard layout with no problems. This one just feels janky.
>>
>>323257880
Good god these people really didn't know what the fuck they were doing did they? Almost makes me grateful that those games came out the way they did.
>>
>>323258268
I didn't like Downpour once I finished it. The story felt really forced. As time passed, I actually found myself thinking it wasn't such a bad game after all, and now I'm considering it replaying it in the future and 100%ing it.
>>
>>323257956
Silent Hill 1-3 have better controls than 4. I mean you really think how bad 4 controls after hearing that.

So does anyone have any control configs that work for them? In past Silent Hills, tank controls were on the arrow keys while side stepping was done with A and D. Camera controls were on the numpad. The fact that there's also a first person mode makes that preset makes it difficult to work with.
>>
>>323258291
I'll be more correct. Broken environments that lead to broken enemies. You're in closed spaces so you'd end up gangraped by enemies if you don't get away from them fast enough. Like the fucking dogs for instants.

Not to mention you can only save in the hub/room, so if you get killed by the gangrape after finding all the shit you need to progress, you better have memorized the place because you are going to have to do all over again.

>the town in Downpour
>immersive
but really, most of the town was copypasta'd, a lot of interior textures were copypasta'd, and they even went so far as to directly copy + paste the 302 from 4. it's easily the least immersive game because, where each of the first 3 had all of these places and things you wanted to go out of your way to see and explore things in Downpour were so samey that there was no real reason to go out of your way to see anything.

as an aside, the experience was so lame for me that I didn't even bother with the side quests. but that had a little more to do with the whole karma system and also thinking that "none of this actually matters, it doesn't add anything it's not mysterious it's just dumb exposition"
>>
I don't recall 4 having terrible controls, or at least not any worse than 1 or 2.

Heather's such a sassy bitch in SH3.
>>
>>323259408
Ignoring the room, the fact that you can't focus the camera and tank controls are gone make it wonky as hell.
>>
>>323259576

Joanna I can understand, Heather's unfortunate but I can see how someone might miss her, but Jill fucking Valentine?
>>
>>323259576
Now you know better. Never talk to people like that. Including us.
>>
>>323259201
I also remembered they copypasta'd the music from 2 and 3, maybe something from 4 too. I can't remember too clearly but I vaguely remember Room of Angel thrown in and can't help but think it was tossed in for shits and giggles

I really liked 4 up until you had to replay all the previous levels backwards while fighting invinicble enemies and escorting that bitch. Up until that point though I liked it more than 1-3

I wouldn't know, I've never played that one

I think it's because it's a figurine and they had to put something other than "gradient colored plane that blends with the neck"
>>
>>323263147
Please never do anon
>>
>>323262806
And that escort bullshit was like 75% of the game, because when you're by yourself you breeze through each area easily but then they make you do tons of dumb shit the next time and block off tons of areas so it takes forever.

I never played Silent Hill and I was thinking it of playing them. How does the first one hold up? Should I skip it to 2 or is it still enjoyable today?

Dont skip anon, 1 is one of the best games of all time

Silent Hill 1 is the best one friend. Don't skip any of the first three. Here. I just updated this shit for the PC titles. You can emulate the first one easily.

Is it wrong that I would play the shit out of that?

Honestly Silent Hill 2 was more sad and melancholy than scary.

I kinda want to get into this series but I don't own a ps2.

How are the Xbox ports?

>>323266532

Good. You know you can play them on PC right?

>>323265920
>>
>>323266223
I think that's kinda one of the main goals that Team Silent was trying to achieve for all 3 of them.

if you can get past the horrible game design and majority of the enemy designs, and retarded story, the game is interesting. I would really like to see a remake with a lot of changes made, or at least a game with the same concept. at it's core is a great setting with some unique ideas, it's just almost everything else that gets in the way so you can't enjoy it.
>>

3 made me cry a lot
Harry was an amazing father
>>
>>323257639
Holy shit just do it. You'll get used to the controls and enjoy the game.
>>
is there a gif or webm of op?
>>
>>323265807
first one is easly the best of the series and still one of my favorite horror games to date. do not play 3 before 1. if you feel 2 might ease you into the series there's no real harm done since it more or less stands on it's own.
>>
>>323266652
Yeah, but HD isn't that important to me, and I rather not go through the hassle of making them run properly.

Though I will have to do that eventually because Silent Hill 3 never got an Xbox port for some reason.

2's port can be fixed within 2 minutes and 3 can be played as is, although there are some things you can do to make it better; all of which can be done in less than 5 minutes.
for 1 emu just use these settings and you should be able to play it stable on nearly any modern PC.

Xbox version isn't bad, but it does have some hiccups that could be frustration, especially if yours hasn't aged well.

As for why SH3 never got a port, who knows. Might have been Konami showing some kind of console loyalty. Or maybe they just felt confident releasing on one system
