Happy Birthday, Silent Hill!

Today, we wish a sound happy birthday to one of the best video games ever; a game that started the trend for horror video games: Silent Hill.  The game that was released by Konami in 1999, went on to inspire two big budget films, as well as six successful sequels.  Silent Hill was always a favorite of mine, and was one of the very few cases where the movie adaptation of the game wasn’t an unsettling disappointment.  In fact, I rather enjoyed it.  There.  The cynic likes something.

If you wish to take a blast back into the past, please enjoy the following videos of the original Silent Hill gameplay movie and introduction.
