SH 2: Subtlety by TheAwkwardPossum SH 2: Subtlety by TheAwkwardPossum
A little back story: So the past couple of days I started and consequently finished Konami's Silent Hill 2. Pretty much my first survival horror game ever (I don't count that Siren incident... *shudder*).

All in all though, it was a pretty damn fantastic game. I'm a pussy so it scared the shit out of me (I'm still having nightmares :I), but I still loved it. Especially for the constant symbolism that the game employs.

There was this one point in the game though that kind of just made me go "really??" That being, when you're getting ready to leave the Prison level, the exit is located in a graveyard, which is full of gravestones with the names of 3 of the games characters on them and open graves in front of them. And the actual exit... is a deep hole in front of the one for James.

You have to jump into your own grave to leave. WHAT.

In other news, I think that is a damn fine hole that I shaded there :I

James Sunderland/Silent Hill 2 (C) Konami

I always found that interesting.

I also noticed that one of the graves was marked "Walter Sullivan" :iconimhappyplz:

I was reluctant to jump in that hole. I actually looked around for another exit even though I knew there wasn't one. XD

Ohhohoho, James. You'll do anything won't you. Crazy cat.
And that is a damned, ridiculously fine hole. Even I would be all over jumping into THAT whole, if you know what I mean...eh? EH?

I like graves... when I die, I want to be buried near one.
Well, I hope that happens soon. You dying, that is.
