This seems to happen every year around GOTY time — much like when someone asks you what your favourite movie is, and you forget whether you’ve actually ever seen a movie. Did… Did I play any video games? Did any games even come out? Surely there must…

How to HDify Silent Hill the wrong/right ways

The Silent Hill HD remake for consoles is one of the most famous muck-ups in gaming history. Konami rushed the project out the door, despite not telling consumers that they'd outsourced the up-rez'ing and -- most upsetting of all -- worked from incomplete files. Somehow, Konami misplaced the finished code for the original games, so it was left up to an understaffed team to replace…

Clickuorice Allsorts: behind the scenery of Silent Hill 2

In just under sixteen minutes, this video shows you more of Silent Hill 2 than you've probably ever seen before. I know the game back-to-front and still saw new things. In fact, this is very much aimed at people who know every detail of the game and if you don't, it's going to spoil everything. Shesez's Boundary Break series uses camera hacks and other tricks…

The 25 Best Horror Games On PC

To compile a list of the 25 best horror games on PC is to look into the void for so long that the void not only starts to look back, but shakes you by the hand and takes you out for coffee. It is to fight with monsters until you become a monster and then go on a European railtrip with the other monsters, and…

Horror: The Games I Can’t Play

Something I can't do – have never been able to do – in terms of what I do for a living is enjoy horror games. That's why I've decided to talk the matter over with Adam, one of the RPS resident horror fans and the chap whose own most recent supporter post dealt with Five Nights At Freddy's; a nasty, brutish horror game but one…

Fantastic Cartography: Why Videogame Maps Matter

Every Sunday, we reach deep into Rock, Paper, Shotgun's 141-year history to pull out one of the best moments from the archive. This week, Adam's celebration of videogame cartography, from cloth maps to digital records of procedural worlds. This article was first published in 2011. Some of my earliest memories of gaming are not of the games themselves but of the things that came bundled…

Letters From Nowhere: Silent Hills

Dear RPS, There's a place that I sometimes go to but I rarely talk about it. I can't find the words. Maybe the only way to tell you is to go back there and to write everything down in a letter. So here I am. The first time I came to this place, this special place, I didn't have the courage to remain there alone...

Fantastic Cartography: Memories And Maps

Some of my earliest memories of gaming are not of the games themselves but of the things that came bundled in the box with them. Whether it was a hefty manual, full of lore and encyclopaedic listings, or a little extra something. Most of my games don't even come in boxes anymore, although sites such as Steam Covers can help to keep the physical alive.…
