Yeah, I understand. Have fun with it! You should also give a shot to the old fmv games, like Phantasmagoria, Gabriel Knight and Wing Commander. They seem right up your alley.

Quantum Break seems a bit bland in my opinion.

Hey! Sorry for the long wait. My life is also in a very complex spot, and energy sapping.

I do agree with your choice. I got the feeling you want to make movies in your own way. And stabilizing your life, financially and emotionally, will help you find that joy, quality and satisfaction in your movies, that you search for, as well as a more fulfilling life. You made a great choice.

And remember a small indie movie that rocked the world: Blair Witch Project. Three actors and a small budget changed the face of the horror industry.

I believe that kind of life will go very well for you, as long as you keep that passion for the real and beautiful alive working the way you want it. It will be a fulfilling and happy life.

One thing I've come to realize is that it is important to pinpoint exactly what drives us. What are we looking for in our lives? Some objectives are pretty easy to ascertain, but others are more elusive, and they manifestate in very commonly through our frustrations. "What do we feel frustrated about?" - that question will lead to goals unfulfilled.

And to me it seems you desire to makes movies the way you like it, and engage in your other creative and leisurely activities, and your choice aligns with that, as long as you don't abandon them for work or something else.

So to me you are really choosing the dream that makes you happy.

Good luck!

I love the Fable games, and still play them. I feel sorrow for seeing a creative studio with unique ideas close, even if some of them didn't pan out or were less than stellar, they were different. The gaming market just became a little less diverse and interesting.

@jeust: Absolutely. I just wantetd to point out the weird Korn thing. You're opinion is valid, I was just a being a drunk dick at the time. Just a fan being a terrible fan lol

Apologies.

@jeust: I have to say I agree with the majority of this reply. Obviously, not the broadstroke of Downpour is better, but I think you're right: SH2 isn't scary; it has a great, tense atmosphere. I only mentioned "scares" in relation to Downpour because it actually seemed like DP wanted to be scary on some level but could not fully commit, whereas SH2 knew it wasn't really going for that. Also, I forgot the lore and side-quests of this game. I really like most of them! In fact, I like pretty much all of the "general lore" that the western teams made for SH, even in Homecoming. It's hard to get mad at learning anything interesting about the town of Silent Hill.

That music, though...

Anyway, I guess I mean that while I don't hold this opinion, I can relate to appreciating what IS good in DP and if things were weighed differently (for me, VERY differently :p), the idea of liking DP above the others. To paraphrase heavily: "I may not hold your opinion, but I can see it from here".

No problem guys. Truthfully I don't remember much of the Korn song, and I believe it is only featured in the intro video. And given that it doesn't really feature in the game, only the instrumental songs, which one of them, Intro Perp Walk, I find memorable, makes me think that although it doesn't have the richness and creativity of an Akira Yamaoka score, it holds up well, fitting well the theme and the beats of the story.

@yummylee: @mason20: @brodehouse: @poobumbutt: @john1912: @dancinginfernal: @devil240z: @lelcar: @xerseslives: @viciousbearmauling: @sh_fan89:

Different strokes for different folks.

Downpour isn't scary, but neither did I find any of the others appart from SH4. SH2 had a great atmosphere, but very few scary moments.

To me Downpour isn't a perfect game, but, given that I played recently both Sh2, SH3, and Shattered Memories, and have a good recolection of both Silent Hill 4, Origins, and Homecomming, it is the best overall, in my opinion.

But like some pointed I base much of my opinion that the game plays better, and is faithfull to the mythos created mainly in SH2, and non-Team Silent games, like @xerseslives said. Also to me the side-quests, and some of them in particular, like @yummylee said, are very good, plus a big and explorable town is also amazing. I always wanted to explore Silent Hill in more depth.

This doesn't mean that I find the game better than the others, in everything. Silent Hill 2 and 4 story is amazing, and more poignant than Downpour, the monsters aren't that creative like Silent Hill 2 and 3, the music of all prior Silent Hill games is amazing, and better than in this game. But as an overall package I prefer Downpour.

Still it is just an opinion.
