In my restless dreams,
I see that town…

Silent Hill.

You promised me you’d take me
there again someday.
But you never did.

Well, I’m alone there now,
In our ‘special place’…
Waiting for you.

Waiting for you to
come to see me.

But you never do.

And so I wait, wrapped in my
cocoon of pain and loneliness.

I know I’ve done a terrible
thing to you. Something you’ll
never forgive me for.

I wish I could change
that, but I can’t.

I feel so pathetic and ugly
laying here, waiting for you…

Every day I stare up at the cracks
in the ceiling and all I can think
about is how unfair it all is…

The doctor came today.
He told me I could go
home for a short stay.

It’s not that I’m getting better.
It’s just that this may be
my last chance.

I think you know what I mean.

Even so, I’m glad to be coming
home. I’ve missed you terribly.

But I’m afraid, James.
I’m afraid you don’t really
want me to come home.

Whenever you come see me,
I can tell how hard it is on you…

I don’t know if you
hate me or pity me,
or maybe I just disgust you…

I’m sorry about that.

When I first learned that
I was going to die, I just
didn’t want to accept it.

I was so angry all the time and I
struck out at everyone I loved the most…
Especially you, James.

That’s why I understand
if you do hate me.

But I want you to
know this, James.

I’ll always love you.

Even though our life together had
to end like this, I still wouldn’t
trade it for the world. We had
some wonderful years together.

Well, this letter has gone on
too long, so I’ll say goodbye.

I told the nurse to give
this to you after I’m gone.

That means that as you read
this, I’m already dead.

I can’t tell you to remember me,
but I can’t bear for you to
forget me.

These last few years
since I became ill…
I’m so sorry for
what I did to you,
did to us…

You’ve given me so much and
I haven’t been able to return
a single thing.

That’s why I want you to live
for yourself now.
Do what’s best for you, James.

James…

You made me happy.

Day 12 - A game everyone should play ; Silent Hill 2 (2001)

There were a tonne of games I could’ve chosen for this, including some of my favourite classics and also some of my newer likes but Silent Hill 2 was a game I HAD to choose because it’s possibly one of the most definitive horror games of the past twenty years. Silent Hill 2 is like The Godfather of horror games. Sure, there are classics like the original Silent Hill, Resident Evil and even the more recent popular choices of Outlast and FNAF etc. But SH2 is a game every gamer should play. It’s dark, twisted, confusing-at-times, emotional, scary. It’s the kind of game that draws you in, grips you and refuses to let go. The atmosphere is perfect as is the story and although it sometimes lacks in regard to gameplay, it’s intense narrative and frightening drama more than makes up for it. PLAY IT NOW.
