Silent Hill 2 will always have the greatest story in video game history

The fact people still talk and debate about the game's story, characters and it's themes more than ten years after the fact says a lot about it. There's much more to the game than simply "whatta twist!"

I would not say SH2 has the greatest story in video game history. It certainly has an ambitious one. I think it's quite compelling and I don't fully understand the story. I've read explanations, or possible explanations on the web, but I don't think I want it explained to me. I will hopefully play SH2 again. Maybe around Halloween!
SE may have another FF hit on their hands with FFX/X-2 HD. Perhaps the biggest FF since, well, FFX. :p

So I guess we just have polar opinions.

Yeah, I guess, lol. I do agree that the game is very rich in terms of theme and symbolism. It does a lot of showing and not telling, so if that's your argument, yes, you're right about that.

I'm just a little more old-fashioned in that I would like to see more surface stuff, too. Silent Hill 3, Downpour, and Shattered Memories are examples of what I'm getting at in the same series.

SH 2 was good, but is it the Greatest story. I can not agree with that.

Many of the lists above have better IMHO.

mass effect series.
Lost Od ( 360)
XenoSaga ( ps2).
Heavy Rain, somewhat.
What about the Last of us.

I think most people would agree, that there are about 10+ that top that list before SH2. thats not saying it was junk, it was a "MUST PLAY", on that gen. Just its not number one.

Thank you for sharing.
