  1. I'd like to put in my own two cents.  I think 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors would have made a decent contender for an honorable mention.  You and eight other people are trapped on a sinking ship and you have a limited time to escape before your lives are forfeit.  A good chunk of the soundtrack helps convey the oppressive atmosphere and0 feelings of fear, confinement, and pressure to stay alive

  2. Silent Hill & Resident Evil should have a list by their own.

    My favorites are, Silent Hill 2, 4, 1, 3, Origins, Homecoming, Shattered Memories & Downpour
    And from Resident Evil , RE 3, Zero, Outbreak, 4, 2, Remake, Code Veronica & 1.

  3. DISLIKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! !

  4. honestly, SH2 is too overated. I would prefer the soundtracks and ambient sound in SH Downpour because of the great horror amospheres. Yet, i never found sad music in horror game are scary, they are more distracting than being horror.

  5. Of all SH2 soundtracks…. OSTs like "butterflies", "ashes and ghost", "black fairy", "silent heaven", "the darkness that lures" and many others are way SCARIER than the one you chose in the video, not a bad one tho but c'mon it's not as horrifying as many others in the game
