Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameMoviesSuck: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]]. The film was panned by most critics, with a 30% Rotten Tomatoes score (''5%'' among "Top Critics"), but was [[CriticalDissonance positively received]] by most fans and casual audiences, with a respectable 6.5 on IMDB, and even the fans that didn't like it seem to have some respect for it.

** In terms of protagonists, Heather Mason seems to be the most popular, due to her being the bravest protagonist and being Alessa's reincarnation.

** There's a room in the mall in ''3'', where there's a sign that says you need to turn off the lights because the room becomes very noticeable if you don't. Even while watching a friend play the game, when they go to turn off the lights, it's terrifying because of previous knowledge of ''SilentHill'' games. [[spoiler:Nothing actually happens either way,]] which really makes it ParanoiaFuel.

** Ditto ''SilentHill3'' if you use the MagicalGirl outfit. Add in the cheat that has Douglas in his boxers and very little else for extra fun.

*** Since the release of the PT for ''VideoGame/SilentHills'', fans are '''still complaining''', stating that HideoKojima wouldn't be able to pull off the new game, {{Creator/Guillermo del Toro}} wouldn't be able to execute the atmosphere properly (since you know, the creator of ''PansLabyrinth'' [[SarcasmMode doesn't know anything about horror]]), and even more over the fact that the teaser was shot from first person view.

* ScapegoatCreator: Until around 2015, an easy to generate a FlameWar among ''Silent Hill'' [[BrokenBase fans]] was to ask who caused the series' DorkAge: Tomm Hulett, or Creator/{{Konami}}. To one half of the fanbase, Hulett, the man who took over as the director of the series after the original development team, Team Silent, disbanded following [[VideoGame/SilentHill4TheRoom the fourth game]], was responsible for everything that went wrong with the series from ''VideoGame/SilentHillOrigins'' onward, from questionable creative decisions to changes in gameplay mechanics to the PortingDisaster that was the ''Silent Hill HD Collection''. To the other, Hulett has been the only person keeping the series alive, and it was Konami that broke up Team Silent and passed the franchise off from studio to studio while destroying everything that made the original games great. The only thing they can agree upon is that the series went downhill after Team Silent broke up, and that ''someone'' is to blame.\\\

* MisBlamed: When the Silent Hill HD Collection was released, it came with a significant number of technical bugs and deviations from the originals, and the developers were roundly bashed by the fanbase for "sullying the legacy of the originals". About three months later, however, it became apparent that the PortingDisaster wasn't the porting team's fault at all: Konami had gone and [[http://www.destructoid.com/silent-hill-hd-was-made-from-incomplete-code-228158.phtml lost the code to the final version of both games]].

* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: How a lot of fans feel about the series since the disbanding of Team Silent. However, Creator/HideoKojima came the closest to Team Silent's reputation with ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' before getting screwed over.

The Hulett-bashing has, however, mostly gone dormant and shifted to a focus on Konami ever since the ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' debacle. Pretty much ''everybody'' agrees that that mess was Konami's fault, especially in the wake of their abandonment of most AAA game development in 2015-16 to focus on mobile gaming and pachinko machines. While Konami's fraught relationship with Creator/HideoKojima, the director of ''Silent Hills'', tends to be portrayed as a one-way street a bit too often (Kojima had gone seriously overbudget on ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''[='=]s TroubledProduction, putting him very much in Konami's bad graces), Konami's announcement of a ''Silent Hill'' pachinko machine just months after they canceled ''Silent Hills'' read like a deliberate insult towards the franchise and its fans.
