Congrats, StarFighters76.  That's a lot of maps!  :D

I remember using your Silent Hill 2 (https://vgmaps.com/Atlas/PS2/index.htm#SilentHill2) maps to get through the game.  It is easily the scariest game that I have ever played, and the series really changed how I see other horror games like Resident Evil.  But man, some of those Silent Hill games... way too many doors, and many of them are unopenable.  Probably adds to the tension and labyrinthineness, but it can be a bit much.  The maps saved me some time, I'm sure.  (I think I still got a bad ending because I took too much damage during the course of the game...)

I recall some kid's magazine (or some kind of publication) asking about you, and wanting to use your maps, but they referenced your maps for either Silent Hill or Silent Hill 2, and I remember we discussed how we thought it was odd that they would be looking at these horror games if they were doing something for young readers.

I remember that. It was a book for kids called "If Maps Could Talk". This was in 2007, and they were originally gonna use Silent Hill, but found my map for Hotel Delfino for Super Mario Sunshine more appropriate. I still have a couple copies of that book :)
