    Default Help me choose a game.

    So I recently discovered that I have roughly ten dollars in my PSN account and I'm thinking of picking up a PS1 classic. Help me decide between:

    Silent Hill - A game I've never played but I own all of the PS2 sequels.

    Alundra - A game I had noticed back when I was younger and then kind of forgot about it.

    Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain - The first entry ina series I've been interested in awhile.

    Vanguard Bandits - Obscure SRPG from Workign Design I played back in the day but never finished.

    I've been really interested in the legacy of kain series myself, but you really ought to play silent hill. It's fantastic.

    Come to think of it, SH1 probably has the best atmosphere in the entire series. That beginning still gives me chills just thinknig about it.

    Going to agree with Silent Hill. It was creepy, but still fun.

    Due to having closer to $13, I picked up both Silent Hill and Blood Omen.

    Holy crap Blood Omen is hilariously bad. I mean, I would feel somewhat insulted if I didn't find all the narm so damn charming. Silent Hill is interesting, not a fan of the speedy aggressive enemies or the tank controls but I'm really digging the camera work in this game, going through the back alleys is very eerie with the bird's eye view that kind of follows the main dude around as if something was watching him.

    Yeah, the camerawork in the first SH is definitely the best and one of the main contributing factors to its incredible atmosphere

    This game needs an HD port.

    Soul Reaver was the good Legacy of Kain game. Blood Omen? Ah, not so much.
