    Aside from fighting games (which I've never been stellar at but enjoy nonetheless), I'm a huge fan of the Silent Hill series. Granted the last couple games have been pretty mediocre, but when the series was firing on all cyclinders (2 and 3 basically), the series was great. The atmoshphere and horror were top notch. Fallout is a personal favorite too, just fr sheer expansiveness. I love that feeling of exploration and not being sure what is around the next corner.

    I like RPGs and action games, myself. Only experience I've had with Silent Hill is with a demo of 4 and I never really got into Fallout. My tastes tend to lean more towards the niche stuff.

    You may like Fallout if you're into RPG's. I mean it basically is an RPG in that it has most of the elements of one (expansive story, a "leveling up" system, open world, side quests, finding newer and better gear, etc...etc). But if you have only played JRPG's or the like, then yes it has a much different feel to it.

    BTW Silent Hill 4 was terrible and not even really an SE game. In fact it was conceived as a totally separate title and essentially remade into a Silent Hill game by shoehorning some of the thematic elements of the series into it. It's not a good choice to judge the series by. If you can play 2 or 3 in HD do so.

    It definitely appears to be vastly different compared to what I play. Always leaned more towards JRPGs since childhood exposure to Final Fantasy VII and VIII and Legend of Dragoon.

    I didn't know that much about SH4. But it sounds pretty believable. Honestly, I don't really engage a whole lot in survival-horror in general so I don't know much about what's good in that genre.

    Capcom versus SNK 2 is pretty much my favorite fighting game of all time.
