Take a journey with us all the way back to the turn of the millennium to the game that laid the groundwork for what would become the template for psychological horror in video games. Silent Hill 2 became a textbook example of how to create unnerving and uncomfortable spaces in video games both in-game and the mind of the player. With a number of strange, often confusing decisions, Silent Hill 2 reels players into a game that plays the player rather than the other way around. 

This week, we are joined by Mega Dads co-creators Adam Leonhardt and John Wahl. You can check out the duo's work and podcast over on MegaDads.org where they write, talk, and create comics about gaming and parenting. 

Outro music: Silent Hill 2 'There Was a Hole Here' by The Wingless (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00711)
