Best Silent Hill Games

A list of the best games from the Silent Hill franchise.

The Top Ten

1 Silent Hill 2

Do I honestly have to say anything? I didn't think so... but I'm going to anyway. Silent Hill 2 is one of the greatest games of all time. That is a fact. That is a definitive fact that cannot be proven wrong. Is it a perfect game? No. Some of the voice acting is really awkward among other things. However, the story, characters, soundtrack, graphics (especially for the time), and little shining moments make this game a masterpiece. Each character is deep and rich. The symbolism is incredibly clever and almost undetectable (in a good way) at times. The atmosphere is either chokingly haunting, or peacefully haunting. It's always been a deeply relaxing game for me. It just consumes me with such a feeling of tranquility at times. And the little moments are unbelievable. The opening, some of the Maria scenes, the soundtrack, and the Leave ending are moments that are literally perfect. Speaking of, the soundtrack IS perfect. Not a single song doesn't hit its mark in its own unique way. Theme ...more - regualrshowman1

The story to this was amazing I loved it so much I've beat the game 12 times just experience it again.

Anyone remember the alternate ending? - Gehenna

I would ask my little sister to watch me play b/c I was so scared.

2 Silent Hill 4: The Room

Elements make this game creepy and fun. It leaves so many questions and that's part of Silent Hill's best feature. Why does Robbie look at you when you look through the hole in the wall? Why is there a random sheep in a cage in the spiral staircase part? That's the beauty of it.

The creepiest of all of the Silent Hill games, and the most entertaining. The best storyline goes to SH2, but this one is the best game.

This game is complete garbage, how is this monstrosity at number 2?! The first Silent Hill should be at number 2, not Silent Hill 4! - Gehenna

3 Silent Hill 3

One of the most emotionally, in-depth lead characters in the franchise with a beautifully complex personality.

4 Silent Hill

A game way ahead of its time. So well made and still very creepy today. Should be #1. - Acdcdanny

Unbelievable! SH1 under Shattered Memories? You must be joking...

This game should be the first of the list. This is the real masterpiece of survival horror genre and the most terrorific episode of Silent Hill, independently of its primitive graphics.

This should be number 2, not Silent Hill 4 - Gehenna

The best horror game in PSX

5 Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

"You've been with me for so long"
"I always will be" :(
Prefer the "re-imagining" than the original game

6 Silent Hill: Downpour
7 Silent Hills: P.T.
8 Silent Hill: Homecoming

Not exactly the best Silent Hill, but one of the fun ones. Stupendous graphics out of the entire series, creepy atmosphere, easy combat, ray gun, creative monsters, straightforward story, emotional characters, awesome soundtrack, & Pyramid Head cameos. What's not to enjoy?

My favorite Game of the whole series, great Story, great Gameplay, great Characters, great Combat-system... great Game!

I personally think that it's the best Silent Hill title on the Xbox 360. At least it didn't have as many technical bugs as Downpour and it is DEFINITELY better than the HD collection.

9 Silent Hill: Origins

Should be in top 5

10 Silent Hill: Book of Memories

The Contenders

11 Silent Hill: The Escape
12 Silent Hill: Orphan
