this close to having a Silent Hills featuring a chainsaw gun and active reloads—if only Cliffy B had accepted Hideo Kojima’s offer. (And if only such a promising game wasn’t sadly cancelled, but hey ho.) The Unreal/Gears of War developer has said on Twitter that he was once approached by Kojima to help make a Silent Hill title, but declined.
Kojima once told me he wanted me to do a new Silent Hill w him together out of LA. I was flattered but declined.

Cliff may have turned Hideo down, but Guillermo Del Toro and Junji Ito didn’t, and we can only imagine the wonderful madness that have would resulted if Konami had let them finish it. (Ta, Gamespot.)
