The intensely atmospheric Silent Hill series hits its 8th chapter (a ride of which I’ve been a part since its debut on the PSone). After a prisoner transfer bus crashes, an unwitting inmate (Murphy Pendleton, with an in-depth back story) finds his way to the notorious town with dark and deadly secrets, where reality is not what it seems. You’re met with foggy, deserted streets and buildings, strange characters, and a horde of vicious and creepy creatures(which is also enhanced for 3D TVs). Amid the survival horror staple of exploring your environment and collecting essential items (including weapons) to ensure your progress, the cinematic tone adds that extra touch to pull you into this scary world. The 18 age restriction is there for a reason, as some scenes (in which you will sometimes uncomfortably participate) are very graphic and realistic. So please be warned. While not related to another engrossing game Heavy Rain, (besides adding to the atmosphere) the significance of the Downpour title relates to the fact that the creatures tend to emerge in the rain(!) The main theme song is performed by Korn.
