Silent Hill is the first installment of Konami’s amazing survival horror series Silent Hill. It was originally released on the Playsation in January 1999 in North America, March 1999 in Japan, and August 1999 in Europe.
Single dad Harry Mason heads to the Lake Resort town of Silent Hill in hopes for a relaxing vacation with his seven year old daughter Cheryl. The pair had a late start due to car trouble and didn’t reach the town limits until well after nightfall. Unfortunately just as the two were entering Silent Hill a female figure walks onto the road and forcing Harry off the road and through a guard rail an an attempt avoid a collision.
Upon waking from the crash Harry is alarmed not only to find that has Cheryl has run off but that the town is deserted and foggy with snow falling out of season. Where did everyone go? Why are the streets crawling with monsters…and most importantly where did Cheryl go?
I had so much fun making my Deadly Premonition deep dive that I was eager to try my hand at making some more let’s plays and was inspired to make a new dedicated Youtube channel. To start things off I just had to go with the game that’s not only a long time favorite, but the game that cemented my love for the survival horror genre all those years ago.
During this Let’s Play I will discuss the game’s development, show all the endings/weapons/items, and all the cool movie/music/literary easter eggs scattered around town as well!
I don’t mind spoiler discussions within the thread since this is a nearly 20 year old title but please keep these discussions under a spoiler tag to not ruin any surprises for anyone who might be new to the story.
I also welcome any questions or comments you may have about the game or the LP. I’ll be recording and uploading as I go so I’ll be able to address anything you guys may bring up between the updates in the next video.
