And in his grave rained many a tear.
The following is kind of spoiler-y for Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.
Title from Act IV of Hamlet; it comes from a scene where Ophelia is mourning the loss of Polonius and has gone a bit mad. I chose this title because as I was reading Hamlet it really jumped out at me and screamed Cheryl...
Thus far I've determined 3 connections that Lisa (or the person who created her if you will) from Shattered Memories has in common with Ophelia.
1) They both die under questionable circumstances. If one assumes that Lisa represents survivor's guilt then suicide seems more likely.
2) Ophelia is called a strumpet by Hamlet, depending on the ending the player gets Lisa may also be seen as this.
3) Ophelia's father dies and it distresses her greatly (to the point that she either falls in the pool of water or commits suicide). We know someone else who is pretty disturbed by their father's death as well to the point of causing herself harm by obsessing over it. Ophelia definitely obsesses over Polonius' death too.
I love SHSM too much, they did some really clever stuff with these mementos!
Picture by my boyfriend, funky-photoshop-out-the-IKEA-tags by me. Costume/wig/Infinite Jest memento done by me as well.
Kind of related, Happy Birthday Silent Hill 4!!! :D
