    Anybody have any thoughts on The Evil Within or Silent Hill? I finished up RE4, which was fuckin awesome. Based on what I've heard, I should really play The Evil Within and/or Silent Hill and can get those cheap I'm sure.

    I really enjoyed The Evil Within. The gameplay is fun and it's pretty creepy in spots but the story is really hard to piece together. It feels like RE4 in a lot of ways so if you liked that game you'll probably enjoy The Evil Within.

    Silent Hill is a great series. 1 through 3 are arguably the best in the series (2 is my personal favorite) but the gameplay can be a bit rough (similar to the early Resident Evil games). If you like the Resident Evil series then you should definitely check out Silent Hill in some capacity.

    @MargeInTheLargin I think you said you played RE backwards - is that true or some weird implanted memory in my head? RE is a very weird series for me, because I love it as whole, but don't love a lot of the games. I played RE1-3 and appreciate them, but never want to play them again. 4 I already touched on. 5-6 lol no. 7 yes please thank you.

    TEW is a sort of fun one-time-play horror game. The story, like you were polite about - it is STUPID AS HELL AND ALSO DUMB. It's an awful, incoherent story. And a lot of the game has a very misplaced vibe. It wants to be five different horror genres, and succeeds at being like 1.5 of them.

    That being said, I heard TEW2 is pretty solid, and will probably play it eventually.

    Nice, and you're correct, I'm pretty much playing Resident Evil backwards and out of order. I love all things horror in general, so when I got back into games and saw a new Resident Evil coming out (7), I jumped on it and played it. Then I just finished RE4. And then an awesome looking remake of RE2 is coming out next month which I will jack off to no doubt. I figured in the meantime I'll try out The Evil Within or Silent Hill, but since I finished up RE4 I'm back to staying away from games for a bit to continue focusing on music in my free time. I try to have SOME kind of discipline.

    If you don’t call it RE, 5 is a pretty decent game in its own right - not very horror though

    This is very possible. But RE5 was a perfect storm of not being the game I wanted:

    It followed RE4, one of the best SP gaming experiences in video games to that point
    I don't do much MP / co-op
    SP with a bot was wack

    I never actually played any Silent Hill. I forget why - was it a PSX-only franchise? I didn't get into PS until PS3 so I could play The Last of Us. I have no love for PSX or PS2.

    But that PT thing - I wanted that. Shame that dissolved.

    I went ahead and just ordered the first Evil Within. I bought it used and am sending back in 2 games I don't play anymore (Deadpool, Farcry Primal) and it's only $4 as a result.

    In poking around a bit more, I see that I should also play Layers of Fear and Deadspace fo sho.

    Oh man. Spider-Man.

    The only story I've done is what you have to do to get to the open world. Since then, I've just been swinging around doing misc stuff.

    This game is insanely fun, and also also a giant love letter to Spidey fans with all the unlockables and little details.

    Literally was just asked if I want to buy the game off someone. I’ll wait 3 more months when it is sold for $10
