    Honestly, Hollywierd can’t do video games on their own, and Video games are becoming a bad one night stand. The fact that GDT is doing a mash-up with Kojima is what will make this game work. Too many games today don’t have that wow factor story telling as earlier games and they are over before you can really enjoy them. Also as you have seen with some of the games you mentioned Hollywood is not very good at video games. i think if more over the top story tellers such as GDT were to work with the gaming industry and subsequently the gaming industry stopped trying to make a quick buck with lack luster games and 20 hours of DLC we will see a real turn around for today’s games.

    I don’t recall Lollipop Chainsaw being a disappointment. James Gunn worked with Suda 51 and it was awesome.

    Hollywood actors yes.   Creative types.   Not so much.   Gotta have comic/gamer cred like these two doing silent hill.

  6. …it’s nice and good but… would people stop referring to EVERYTHING as a reboot?

  7. Its a great idea! I would love to play my favorite game of all time with the hot Norman Reedus as the main character! 

  8. Sub says:

    Good for the collaboration between Kojima and GdT… bad for “the walking dead” actor… I mean, I have no problem with him doing vocal recordings or motion captures, but having to play controlling “Norman Reedus” in Silent Hill? it’s going to feel weird and too much “hollywood” for my taste…
