If someone could, in detail, explain why Silent hill is the way it is, that would be awesome. I like Silent Hill a lot, but honestly, it kind of confuses me. I have no clue why it's the way it is and I can't really figure it out. Because the town was royally fucked up even before Alessa was born wasn't it? So yeah if someone could please educate me in the history of my favorite Resort Town, I'd greatly appreciate it.
