Oh, Silent Hill. I've heard of that... must be awesome.
Rithendaie is an old story I heard when I was really young. Not sure if it's even a real tale, but it's pretty old and has been in my family for years. There's a little town to the west of London called Rithendaie. There's an old saying that the Rithoress (which means Darkness in some language, I forget which) will kill random people by appearing in their house in various dead-poses (gallows, hit with an axe, head lopped off, just happened to pop to the automatic loo and it swallowed them [maybe not that last one]), then killing them in that way.
Not a very friendly creature. Gave me nightmares for a couple of millennia- weeks.
Don't get wrong, part 2 was still good, graphics were way better than part 1, but it's not as disturbing. 2 is definitely worth checking out... 3 was still playable, sorta interesting, but even less disturbing than part 2. The rest, after SH3... not worth your time.
"OH SHI-Oh, it's you again. Don't you ever fucking knock? I almost shit my pants! Anyway, I gotta go out to walk the dog, but there's a six-pack in the fridge, you can help yourself to TWO of them. And don't leave the empties lying around!"
