Greetings from GuardianTree12!
Here is just a list of my top 10 favorite quotes from the games Silent Hill (1) and Silent Hill 2 and a short explanation of why these are my favorite quotes. Warning! There will be spoilers.
10.) That’s strange, it’s getting darker- Harry Mason, Silent Hill.
It’s a great line to set up the game. Harry says this when he is looking for his daughter and it starts getting dark. Then sirens start going off. You’re not sure what’s going on, but you know it’s not going to be good.
9.) I don’t want to think so, but maybe this is all just going on in my head- Harry Mason, Silent Hill.
At this point in the game, Harry is really confused. All he really wants is his daughter back and all he ever gets are Lisa Garland’s frantic pleas, Dahlia Gillespie’s riddles, and Cybil Bennett’s statements of disbelief, oh yeah and monsters. He’s starting to question his sanity but there’s nothing to do but dive deeper and deeper into the mystery of Silent Hill.
8.) James, honey… did something happen to you…? After we got separated in that long hallway…? Are you confusing me with someone else…? Maria, Silent Hill 2.
Maria says this when James finds her after she has been killed by Pyramid Head. Wait, what? After this scene the audience is just as confused as James is.
7.) Herein lies the mother’s womb, containing the power to create life, Dahlia Gillespie, Silent Hill.
Dahlia says this in a flashback near the end of the game. This scene shows just how twisted Dahlia is and reveals how Silent Hill became what it is now.
6.) Killing a person ain’t no big deal. Just put the gun to their head… POW! – Eddie Drombrowski,
Silent Hill 2.
This line speaks for itself. The way Eddie looks when he says this, not just how he says it, is really creepy. It’s clear that he gone completely psyco.
5.) You see it too? For me, it’s always like this- Angela Orosco, Silent Hill 2.
Angela probably has the most depressing and messed up backstory next to Alessa Gillespie. James saves her twice throughout the game, once in the Blue Creek Apartments where he convinces her not to kill herself and once from a monstrous version of her dad in the labyrinth, but in the end she decides that her life is not worth living and ascends up a burning staircase, presumably to her death. This was really sad because I wanted Angela to be able to move on with her life, but she was too broken for that to happen.
4.) You better do something for that cough- James Sunderland, Silent Hill 2.
Of all the multiple endings Silent Hill 2 has, this one is the most haunting. James says this to Maria after she coughs as they are leaving Silent Hill. This hints that James never learned or refuses to learn anything after his experience in Silent Hill and the events that led up to his visit to Silent Hill are doomed to repeat themselves.
Lisa says this to Harry right before she reveals what she has realized about herself. This whole scene is really creepy and sad.
2.) In my restless dreams, I see that town. Silent Hill- Mary Sunderland, Silent Hill 2.
This is the opening line for both the beginning of Mary’s letter to James and the beginning of Silent Hill 2. It’s a perfect line to set up the game and Mary’s full letter that James gets at the end is both sad and uplifting.
1.) Have you seen a girl? Short—
Here’s the real number one: I was weak. That’s why I needed you… Needed someone to punish me for my sins… But that’s all over now. I know the truth. Now it’s time to end this. – James Sunderland.
James says this after he realizes what’s going on. It’s really inspiring to see some face and fight, literally, their own sins.
And that’s my list! Hope you enjoyed skipping down the dimly-lit, corpse-filled, monster-infested street called memory lane. Feel free to post your favorite Silent Hill quotes.
