So I was looking for a copy of Silent Hill 2 and even on PC used copies are going for well over $100. I would?ve settled for the HD Collection if it wasn?t such a cluster due to Konami in all their glory ?losing? the source code and heavily botching the effort as a result. Anyways, after checking out the reddit page for Silent Hill, not only did I find out there is a recent Enhanced Edition which fixes up much of the PC release, but that there?s also a site [https://www.myabandonware.com/game/silent-hill-2-restless-dreams-bgd] that has the game available for free.

Yes, free! Like all the other games which are no long being sold commercially, this site appears to be a beacon of hope for anyone who?d love to revisit or discover old games for the first time. I downloaded Silent Hill 2 along with the patches and hope to check it out tonight. The series in general always beckons this time of year, and it?s been ages since I played the second entry. Pretty pumped about this.

Whut? Silent Hill 1-4 are common games. Should run you less than 20 bucks. What place were you looking that has prices over $100?

Alternatively, if there's a console version you could always try emulating that instead if that works better.

Amazon [https://www.amazon.com/Silent-Hill-2-PC/dp/B00007M9SI]

eBay [https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=silent+hill+2+pc&_trksid=p2322090.m4084.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xsilent+hill+2+p.TRS0]

I know there?s the Greatest Hits and other used PS2 copies for less but would rather get the PC version with the Enhanced Edition mod. Game isn?t sold on Steam or GoG.
