Old Grandma Hardcore

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

[Friday] SMAGGS #6: Silent Hill 4- The Room

[This is the sixth post of a mini-six part series I wrote last week for everybody so you would have some fresh stuff about Grandma while we are out camping in the trees hunting each other and feeding on the collective fear of the tribe. We'll be back August 20th when we blog live back in Cleveland once again. Enjoy!]

Part 6
Silent Hill 4- The Room

We both tried to get into this game, but it just didn't happen. It had all the right elements; It was a Silent Hill game- awesome; It had great graphics- sweet; the audio was creepy as fuck- kickass; by the way, you keep coming back to this room...... Shit.

I remember Grandma being all clever and reading the phone number on the billboard across the street out the window, writing it down and dialing it only to find spooky noises. I remember both of us asking "why are we watching this?" as we peer through a hole in the wall at some chick in her bedroom. We watched the mysterious portal in the bathroom get larger and more creepy with crazy sounds coming from inside, but it all didn't matter because Grandma was bored.

I remember her taking the game back to EB and trading it in for credit she would later use to buy RE4, a much better game- so in the end it all worked out. The concept of the game was solid, just not to Grandma. This cat don't like repetition, you dig?


[We're coming back tomorrow! We post live again TOMORROW! TOMORROW!! God, I wonder what I'm doing while you're reading this. I'm probably falling out of a kayak like a jackass. See you tomorrow!!]

    So glad you will be home---I worried about Grandma--but don`t know why---she seems like she can surely take care of herself!!!

    So, does this mean that Grandma has _not_ beaten Silent Hill 4? Sounds like an admission of defeat? ;)

    I'm glad grandma thinks SH4: The Room sucks, because it does. It's a disappointment to the rest of the SH series.
