A popular rumor about ''Silent Hill 4: The Room'' -- the fourth game in Konami's ''Franchise/SilentHill'' franchise, and the first to receive a subtitle -- says Konami originally conceived it as a wholly original SurvivalHorror game, but [[DolledUpInstallment converted into]] a ''Silent Hill'' game during development. In actuality, Konami intended for it to serve as a spinoff/separate GaidenGame from Team Silent called ''Room 302''. After Konami nixed this plan, it incorporated elements of that game into ''[=SH4=]'', which explains why it has several differences in gameplay to previous ''Silent Hill'' games (including an on-screen health bar, limited inventory space, and a number of first-person sections).

Added DiffLines:

** Though the game is not quick to cast him as such, Jasper Gein can come off as one to the player. [[spoiler:Jasper will hustle Henry out of chocolate milk for a Blood-Inscribed Spade, and after having a minor [[OrgasmicallyDelicious foodgasm]] over the beverage, he will unappreciatively drop the spade on the Wish House porch, for Henry to then bend over to pick up.]]


Added DiffLines:

* StoryBranchFavoritism: The "21 Sacraments" ending is much more developed than the other three.

Added DiffLines:

* IronicHell: [[spoiler:The Eileen Head in the Hospital World corridor. A giant, fleshy, disembodied version of Eileen's face stares down at Henry, following his position in the claustrophobically tight room with a twitchy eye. Out of nowhere emanate moans in Eileen's voice…moans which grow increasingly provocative. Given that Henry (as controlled by the player) has been [[StalkerWithACrush peering at Eileen]] through a crack in the wall, and that Eileen [[YouCanSeeThatRight makes no comment]] upon entering the Head's room, this monstrosity seems to be mere contrapasso for player and protagonist alike. Also examples of FanDisservice and NightmareFuel.]]

** There's also the dismembered, wheelchair-bound doll Henry has to fix during his second visit to the woods. [[spoiler:After it's rebuilt, it suddenly comes to life and rolls itself away to reveal a staircase it was previously blocking. That said, its sudden dismantlement is [[ShaggyDogStory highly anticlimactic]] and makes its assembly feel [[ShootTheShaggyDog redundant in hindsight]]]].

** [[spoiler:Unless one consider the fact that he murdered nineteen people, including two kids, and also committed a massacre in a pet store, which makes him somewhat less sympathetic.]]
* AnyoneCanDie: Due to the sacrifices still being made, it's a given you'll meet some characters who might not make it. [[spoiler:This includes Cynthia, Jasper, Andrew, and Richard. Depending on the ending, Eileen and/or Henry himself may die as well.]]

* BreakableWeapons: The golf clubs. They're reasonably powerful, but fragile, and they break after a certain number of uses.
