My idea for a Silent Hill game
Ok so you play as Jim Sturgeon and you arrive in Silent Hill with your loving 3 months pregnant wife. As you walk arm in arm through the hotel car park, a polite attendant nods to you and as you approach the hotel you pass a smiling old couple. As you are just about to open the door a young girl bursts through the door knocking you slightly off balance. Your wife suppresses a chuckle as the young girl apologises profusely before running off to join her grandparents. Shaking it off and mussing your wifes hair you enter the reception area. The older gentleman behind the desk smiles as you approach and you give your name. He nods as he flicks through his booking list but he seems to freeze and looks up to say he can't find your name. You then check the book and find it was misspelled as Mr Surgeon.
He shows you through the small hotel as he takes you to your room. Your wife acknowledges how charming the paintings on the wall are. "Oh yes, thats Brookhaven hospital. My daughter works there in maternity unit you know. Theres Toluca lake..." he turns to you "... tell me. You much interested in fishin'? Because that is prime bass fishing right there, we get alot of visitors for those.". As he says this you arrive at your hotel room, with a polite nod he hands you the key and walks back the way he came. Happy to have reached your room you drop your bags and pick up the map on the bed. It points out all the great destinations you can visit. You can ride the cable cars at Dragon's Pit, you can visit the Lakeside Amusement Park with it's award winning haunted house, you can go fishing in Toluca lake or camping in it's leafy woods.
Your wife comes out of the bathroom with her makeup finished and you show her the map. You point out that the lake is only a ten minute walk and you want to try the fresh bass fish.
The next 6 hours involve touring the mines, visiting the lake, visiting the amusement park. You smile at the Robbie the Rabbit doing his funny bunny hop skit as he chases the laughing children. Your wife watching with her hands folded over her rounded tummy. Then her face distorts in pain and she groans aloud, but its only her sprained wrist and you go buy the biggest bundle of candy floss you've ever seen.
Arriving back at the hotel exhausted but satisfied you both flop onto the bed, cuddling up close you drift to sleep.
Then you wake up and your wifes gone.
The shower's running.
"Hey, I'll be finished in a second." she calls from the bathroom "You in the mood for porridge? I'm in the mood for a nice thick creamy porridge"
The next six hours consist of going shopping along the bustling high street, a museum and visiting the Capital building. On the way back to the hotel you spot Brookhaven hospital
"Wait, something's been bugging me since last night" your wife says in a strange faraway voice "something about... it"
You approach the hospital and hear a scream
"I knew it! Look at this!" you find her pointing at the most intricate and beautiful mural you've ever seen in your life. "I saw something on the painting but I didn't imagine... this!"
You return to the hotel once again flopping happily to sleep.
The next morning you leave Silent Hill and get a short montage of your wife and child playing happily in the lounge of your suburban idyll.
Absolutely nothing scary happens, both days are sunny but with a nice cool breeze and absolutely no fog. It would be the tensest game ever made. The horror equivalent of orgasm denial for 12 hours.
This is possibly the only way Silent Hill will be scary again.

Strangely enough, the first twenty minutes of Heavy Rain are some of the tensest I've played. (using played in a loose sense there)

Funnily enough I was thinking of some Heavy Rain style QTEs in there. Like one section where there is a baby in a push chair looking at you and you have to make faces at it when the mother isn't looking. Then the baby laughs and the mother smiles at you and swots you away with the Hungry Hungry Caterpillar. You'd need to do this to get the good ending where you find out she went to the same high school as your brother and you and your brother help to reconcile her with her long lost sister.
Theres also a puzzle in the restaurant where you have to come up with exact change because the cash register isn't working. So it ends up like this.
My theory is that Silent Hill is so well known for freaky shit that when you play it you expect a ton of freaky shit so if you went to Silent Hill and there was no freaky shit you'd freak the shit out at just how unfreaky this shit is.
