:lanacackle: 

I'm kind of used to this. It's much worse in the Lost Boys fandom. They will actually try to evict you from it if they don't like you, and it's constantly youngs vs. olds. It's so bad that a book that came out for the anniversary/about its origins, ended up being influenced by the older members of fandom: and it shows in the publication. This is nothing.

But I can still only imagine for those who only come to see if something new is happening. Sorry, y'all. :hahaha:

The only fandoms I'm heavily involved in is the Britney Army, and Sonic the Hedgehog. There's a LOT of similarities between the two. 

Sonic fans are constantly anticipating the newer games to be better, yet always let down overall, saying how Sega is just surviving off of their past accomplishments for the series, and really have nothing positive for the most part to say about the newer games and direction of the series (sound familiar?):quirkney:

It's kinda scary how similar the Sonic fandom and Britney fandom really are in retrospect, considering how different you would imagine them to be.

I never thought it would be like that there, but that actually makes sense. :gaspney: The Silent Hill fandom was that way, the last time I peeked in on them. (It's been a while, tbh. It got to be too much, plus the new games do mostly all suck, and Silent Hills was canceled.) Only the first four games in the series were made by the original Team Silent, and the rest was just Konami letting indie/other developers do whatever they wanted to cash in after disbanding the original team. (The lowest of all was a Silent Hill arcade game. It's Silent Hill's BJ.) And I guess much like things with Team B-- like I said, Silent Hills did get scrapped, and it was after P.T. dropped and people had gotten to play through the playable trailer, which was amazing and very promising. Kind of like the whole MM debacle. :quirkney:

Yep. They even made it so Kojima and del Toro can't release it at all in any form, since the Silent Hill name/brand is owned by Konami. :kidcries: Yet the horror VG genre/indie horror VG community continues to be directly influenced by just P.T. alone. It's kind of cruel irony.

I've seen both, yes. The first is good-- if you'd played the games I'd say to keep in mind that it's completely Westernized, the Order/Church in Silent Hill and Alessa's role in Silent Hill, and that it's not anything like the actual origins found in the game series: but it's still good overall, and I get most of the changes movie wise, because the origins game wise are... complicated. Plus the game series composer, Akira Yamaoka, actually oversaw the first movie to make sure the details they kept were on point, plus contributed all of his original work from the games to the film for its soundtrack. So even people who might not have played would like it, I think.

The second is complete **** and I'd say I don't know how it was greenlighted if I didn't know Hollywood and sequels in general. :tiffcackle:

i just read that revelation was panned by critics & fans :tiffcackle: ill give them a watch just to see what its like cuz im interested in the whole story plus the first one looks pretty good. most sequels turn out to be ****. i saw the kingsman sequel a couple weeks back and it was horrific :tiffcackle: idk how its getting any praise lol

:hahaha: I'm not surprised. The fandom is torn over the first film, but we all mutually agree that the second's just terrible. But fair enough-- enjoy! If you end up getting into the games/watching playthroughs of those, I'd suggest SH2, SH3, SH4, and SH: Origins. The others can be taken or left behind, but those are the good ones. The first SH would be worth watching a playthrough of as long as you know that's like, 1999 when that one came out, and it's the first, so they didn't have the smoothness in graphics/total atmosphere of Silent Hill until SH2.

I'm actually scared to see that one myself because of the sequel reason. :tiffcackle: It's getting praise? Wtf?

I used to play SA2 all the time on GameCube. Sonic riders was cute too but Sonic heroes was a little messy. My favorite character was Knuckles tho, so hot :urite:
