Petition for a full remake of Silent Hill 1-3, from scratch!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Silent Hill 1 was released in 1999, and provided players with an absolutely terrifying and unnerving experience that would remain with them for the next 20 years.
The game was developed by 'Team Silent' and they are responsible for the first 4 games in this series, with the first three usually universally acknowledged to be the strongest in the series.
Silent Hill 2 followed 1 a couple of years later and improved upon everything done in the first game. It quickly gained a huge following and to this day, remains one of the most defining games in the genre.
While my personal favorite Silent Hill games is 2, 3 and 4 also brought interesting and immersive stories and gameplay to the table and each one of the original 4 games is distinctive and unique in it's own way.
Sadly, after the first four games, Team Silent fell apart and what followed were nearly 15 years of trying to reignite that spark that the first games brought fans.
While some attempts to revive the game and garner newfound interest in Silent Hill worked to some degree, most fans agree that the games after the first four did not hold a candle to them and in general showed a trend of declining quality as Developers started trying far fetched ideas to try and 'discover' what made the original games so special.
Around the same time as Silent Hill 1 was being release in 1999, a game called Resident Evil 2 was released about a year earlier, to pretty positive reviews.
Resident Evil 2 was the sequel of a game which brought an entire franchise to life.
Resident Evil games are fun survival horror games that were popular enough to spawn many, many sequels over the past two decades.
On January 25th, 2019, Capcom (who made Resident Evil 2 back in 1998), released a full remake of Resident Evil 2 to nearly universal acclaim.
The transformation and level of detail they put into reconstructing the game was, for lack of a better word, outstanding.
The game sold very fast during it's first few days and immediately attracted positive attention, converting countless people who weren't fans of the series before, into fans.
Seeing a remake of such an old game, especially a survival horror game, made me, and a lot of others, think about how amazing it would be if Konami remade the original Silent Hill games with the level of quality Capcom put into it's own remake.
Keep in mind that I am aware that Konami tried to make an HD release of the first three games on the playstation 3. That, however, was riddled with problems and was not a remake to begin with.
A lot of people have been pretty angry ever since Silent Hills was scrapped, and that's fine.
But how amazing would it be if Konami started a new page for this franchise by making a proper remake of the first three games? I imagine it would be not only nostalgic for fans, but extremely profitable for Konami as well, as I believe a lot of people want to see this happen.
I am just one person, but I made this petition in the hopes that enough people signing it will at the very least get Konami's attention, because even though pinball can be fun, nothing is going to replace playing as James and exploring Silent Hill for the first time for me.
Let's get as many signatures as possible to show Konami how much we want remakes of the original Silent Hill games!
