Game Music - Silent Hill 2

Hi everyone! Today's music comes from one of my favourite games, Silent Hill 2. It's a survival horror game that tells the story of James Sunderland, a man who receives a letter from his dead wife, inviting him to the titular town, a town where nothing is as it seems, and whatever is as it seems, is very, very wrong. During his visit to this once famous resort town, now an abandoned ghost town shrouded in fog, he is faced with truths about his wife, and himself, that he would rather have forgotten...
It's a pretty scary game, and the soundtrack really helps set the atmosphere. Let's give it a listen:

"Theme of Laura"
The Silent Hill series is really good, both story-wise and music-wise. The gameplay is a little clumsy, like most survival horror games, but I definitely recommend these games to anyone who likes an intriguing story and who likes getting scared.

Well, I hope you enjoyed it. Until next time, have a good day!

  5. Ah, soundtracks. I play certain games just for the music, and this one is probably one of them.
    I suppose it's a bit difficult to get the combination right, though.

  16. Love Yamoaka's work, some of the best game music ever. Especially the more trip-hop sounding stuff like "a stray child' from SH3.
