Silent Hill 3
Platform: Playstation 2
Developer: KCET - Team Silent
This is a continuation of our previous blind Let's Plays of Silent Hill and Silent Hill 2. If you haven't already watched them, please do. It would be a shame for you to start off viewing this one without already hating us.
Silent Hill 3 is the third installment in the Silent Hill survival horror series. Like its predecessors, it was developed by Team Silent of Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, and published by Konami. In its gameplay, Silent Hill 3 is virtually identical to the two prior installments, a traditional tank-controlled survival horror action-adventure focussed on ammo and health conservation as well as puzzle-solving. In its story and atmosphere there's the series trademark psychological horror and mystery but unlike Silent Hill 2, SH3 is a direct story sequel to the original. Also, you're a lady.

Heather smiled to herself.
It was just a nice little chat on the phone.
Just another everyday occurrence in her tranquil life.
She was unaware that this tranquil world was about to be torn asunder.
It happened suddenly, without warning, and seemingly without reason. The simple happiness she had known was gone. Her entire world was transformed into a grotesque and bizarre nightmare...
She was caught in the middle.
The cheerful weekend bustle of the shopping mall was replaced by a deep, ominous silence. The only sounds now were the footsteps of the unspeakable creatures, lurking in the darkness. What had happened? She needed to know. But there was no one left to tell her.
Heather was trapped alone in a deranged world, with nothing to do but escape. Not knowing where to turn, her only thought was of survival. She clutched her pistol tightly, ready to shoot anything that tried to attack...
