One thing among many things that Silent Hill has taught me.
Silent Hill is not weird for the sake of being weird. Shit doesn’t happen for the sake of happening. Reality-warping isn’t happening for the pure sake of reality-warping.
The creators have made a game and storyline that can really go any-which-way. Sticking to one interpretation is not recommended.
The town will do three things, slap you in the face for being a shithead , slap you in the face for being with (or knowing) someone that is a shithead, or fucking leave you alone but more often than not it will slap you in the face later in life for becoming a shithead.
So…imagine if there was a protagonist struggling with their sexuality ( among other issues they’re dealing with) happens to find (more like lured to) themselves in Silent Hill?
From the very earliest conversations that I was in on (the pre-script writing meeting), the team had the intention of including incest and sexual abuse in one of the character’s backgrounds. They wanted, remember, to get at the very heart, or maybe I should say edges, of psychological pain. So we all knew precisely what we wanted with Angela in terms of her dialogue on paper and as performed. As you can see, it is also well reflected in her appearance. We thought about it all the time, in every scene. Just watch the scenes again. She gets physically ill when she thinks about her experience. It seems clearly depicted if you know what you are looking for… I would say it was without a doubt the single biggest influence I’ve had on a game. I don’t think there was any other game where I was ever asked to have that much of an affect on the story. It was also unique in that series that I did all the translation myself, and I did all the direction myself - the voice direction and motion capture directing. It was completely unprecedented.
There is an area in Skyrim called Silent Hill. Aomi has been there. I’ve actually gone an hour and through many regions and there was thick thick fog on the ground.

Pyramid Head (s) and The Nurses
Aomi wearing Heather’s outfit and of course the sexy bastard behind her is Pyramid Head.
I got Aomi Heather Mason’s outfit. I got shitfaced at the Konami penthouse. There is a Heather mask but it doesn’t match Aomi’s skintone, waah. :(
