Before your head explodes…

Konami has showed off Silent Hill 8 at E3…

And the general reaction from gamers before they whipped out their fingers to count on was “How’d we get to 8?”  I understand the confusion but if you just counted you would realize that yes indeed SH8 is the 8th Silent Hill game.

Before I count them off I need to address something.
Opinions can be wrong. SH fans can have a favourite entry. Some fans actually think SH 4 was a good game, others are in the correct camp and know it wasn’t the greatest.  Silent Hill 1 thru 3 are considered classics with some controversy over 3.  But 4 – 7 are all mediocre to decent at best.

4 – 7? … Yeah. Here. In case you’re confused.

Silent Hill
Silent Hill 2
Silent Hill 3
Silent Hill 4: The Room
Silent Hill: Origins (AKA Silent Hill Zero)
Silent Hill: Homecoming (Which most refer to as 5 but is the 6th game)
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (Which is a reimaging of the first NOT a retelling.. hence #7)

So should Konami leave the title as Silent Hill 8.. you as a so called “fan” of the series shouldn’t be confused anymore.

The only thing I want from this Silent Hill if Konami isn’t stupid is Co-Op.  Having a 2nd player wont take away from the horror if its done right.
