Video Game Series That Need the Resident Evil 2 Treatment
Silent Hill is the probably the most obvious franchise that would use the Resident Evil 2 treatment. Silent Hill and Resident Evil are both popular horror series that veered more towards action as they went on, and many believe they both lost what made them great.
Whether it’s a remake of one of the first two games or a new game entirely, a fresh coat of paint and a back-to-basics design could go a long way for enhancing Silent Hill’s iconic brand of unsettling horror and making it accessible to newcomers.
With improved graphics, better voice acting and revamped controls and combat, Silent Hill could once again become a gem of the horror genre. The dark environments, disturbing psychological horror and creative enemy designs are there, they just need modernization.
Hopefully one day we will have a Silent Hill 2 Remake we are as confident to recommend as we are for Resident Evil 2 Remake. With Kojima’s Silent Hills crashing and burning, this franchise, and Konami in general, needs a win badly. We want to believe.
