Added DiffLines:

* NotQuiteTheRightThing: Since Maria looks and sounds like Mary, being protective and considerate towards her may seem like what you should be doing. Unfortunately, she's a construct designed to distract James from his quest.

Most fans and critics alike regard ''Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams''[[note]]''Restless Dreams'' is the North American subtitle of the game; ''Inner Fears'' is the European subtitle, and ''Poem of the Last Moment'' is the Japanese subtitle[[/note]], released in 2001 and the second game in the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' franchise, as not only the apex of the ''Silent Hill'' series and the greatest horror video game ever made, but also regularly as one of the greatest games ever made ''period''. This is primarily because of it intensely psychological and memorable storyline, its handling of metaphors and taboo topics, and the much-improved gameplay compared to the original. The game also features MultipleEndings based on James' [[KarmaMeter general behavior]] throughout the story (rather than on specific choices at certain junctions).

* ElevatorSnare: Lucky for James. Not so much for [[spoiler:Maria]]. In fact, the closing of the doors seems triggered to make James see the full grisly consequences of his self-preservation.

* MetaphoricallyTrue: [[spoiler:James' belief that Mary died three years ago (which is eventually proven false) likely stems from a subconscious feeling that the idealized Mary who he loved, was effectively lost to him when she began to mentally and physically deteriorate from her decease. The implication is that Silent Hill latched on to this subconscious feeling and allowed him to believe that is what actually happened.]]
