The collaboration between Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro terrified me when I played P.T. for PS4, and although it’s in no way linked to their upcoming Silent Hill project, one can’t help but notice the similarities when watching the new Silent Hills trailer.

Yeah, that’s basically one minute and forty-eight seconds worth of nope. I mean, I know I’m going to play it because I loved P.T., but the physical act of playing the game was extremely terrifying. It wasn’t the same as watching a Let’s Play, as you’ll never understand the terror of a swinging refrigerator, complete with a rumbling child corpse inside. Or the voice on the radio telling you to turn around. Or, you know, the entire teaser itself. But Silent Hills, based purely on what is shown in the trailer above, takes P.T. to the next level.

I can’t wait. I mean, I can wait.. but I don’t want to. But I want to. Ugh. I need this in my life.

    1. The teaser was only available on PS4, but I’m pretty sure it’ll end up not being a PS4 exclusive. There was a press email from Sony that had games marked as console exclusives, like The Order and Bloodborne, but P.T. wasn’t marked. This could mean that the amazing teaser could, in fact, make its way to Xbox One at some point. Time exclusives are nothing new, but here’s hoping that’s not the case and both consoles will see the finished game at the same time.

      1. Will Lisa actually be in it? you know the preggers ghost woman? because im planning on cosplaying her by next halloween *i didnt have enough time to prep for this halloween*

    1. Silent Hill 1-3 and Fatal Frame 1 & 2 were the scariest games I had ever played before playing the P.T. teaser. So many good memories playing through SH 2 and 3 though!

  1. Ahahahaha! Why, what excellent timing! I was getting bored of having a peaceful nights sleep and my sanity, anyway!
    If this is anything close to the kack-yourself-silly scariness of the P.T teaser, then my body is ready…to watch my big brother play it :3

      1. Ooooooh Gosh! I can’t wait now! Most ‘scary’ games seem to rely on jump scares, but P.T cleverly used the building suspense of knowing that something might happen at any point – and sometimes it was just the smallest thing, the tinest change in the hall, that made you shiver!
        Gee hee hee…!

      2. Yeah, every trip through the hallway built more and more tension because you never knew what was going to be different. Peaking up to the rafters and seeing Lisa peering over the railing about gave me a heart attack!
