I was at a friend's house, and her little brother was playing Halo with his friends. I told them I loved that game, and they said I couldn't play because I was a girl. I asked for a controller. ... I pwned their little butts.
This is all so true. And even when I'm not playing games that do this, I'll still get all nervous. Like, in Harvest Moon, there will be an open space in the mines and I'm all like, "Hmm...proceed with caution..."
The video game Silent Hill also served as an inspiration during the early process. Whilst, a lot of these ideas was later thrown out it has given us an idea for what some of the psychological aspects for the film will be.
