While I don’t consider myself a wuss, I do tend to stay away from horror games. I’m not a fan of having my heart race five times faster than normal, or crying into my pillow each night clutching my Companion Cube for that matter. Silent Hill has been around since the dawn of time, and it’s brought countless scares and tension to gamers.

The P.T. Demo was released on PlayStation 4 around two weeks ago. It didn’t take long for gamers to figure out that it was simply a teaser for an upcoming Silent Hill game. It has since gone on to be downloaded over 1 million times. In completely unrelated news, sales of toilet paper has shot up astronomically.

Never underestimate gamers Mister Kojima. They are ruthless, and will pick apart any morsel, no matter what size, before your very eyes!

You know a game must be scary when all the unused hashtags start getting whipped out, especially when people start leaving gaps between the hash and the word.

Are you excited for this game? I might be keen to check it out when I do eventually get a PS4 one day.
