Since my mediocre writing skills can't do "silent Hill 2" justice, I will leave it up to this fellow:
yes, that is Yahtzee, the ever-popular Austrailian game cynic--err, I mean "critic"-- famous for his break-neck articulation, satiric writing, and grossly steep gaming standards.
It should come as a surprising then, that this notoriously contemptuous game critic shares my opinion. If that isn't a testament to Silent Hill 2's greatness, then I don't know what is.
Watch the video, buy the game, let your mind explode with thought provoking wonder, and thank me when you are done.
