Thrills aren't scary. Nemesis jumping out a fucking window while you're walking down a hallway is a thrill, not a scare. A boulder triggering down a hill while you walk is a thrill. Now silent hill knew how to play on fear. The whole environment was meant to frighten you. The white noise on the radio, the way enemies did things, pyramid head.....now that's fear inducing. Oh, and let's not forget the transition to hell...fucking freaky shit. Resident Evil keeps me entranced, I want to continue the story. Silent Hill on the other hand, I always was timid to advance further, always feared what would come next. However that made me want to advance further. I'll always play RE games for the fun of it, but silent hill is where to go for a truely frightening gaming experience.
