Something about P.T. makes me want to talk about it every few months or so. It was genuinely a big reason for why I bought a PS4 and I’m glad I did while the playable teaser for the since-cancelled Silent Hills was still available.
There was just enough mystery to make you genuinely excited for the full game to come. As a marketing tool, it exceeded what it set out to do. As a horror experience, it was expertly crafted to make a small, otherwise normal hallway feel strange at first, and then increasingly terrifying with each walk through the same door.
I’ve played through it a few times now and still wonder if there are any secrets left hiding somewhere. That second baby laugh in order to see the ending is still something I can’t precisely figure out. But I have the most fun showing it off to people who have never played it before. With a small amount of guidance, it’s easy to get past the more frustrating puzzle hunt portions and just enjoy the suspense and the jump scares.
So, who still has P.T.? Do you still play it at all? Or have you only watched playthroughs from other folks like Patrick?
