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

Is it just me or have I haven't played this game. Oh, this is peppapigsucks. I deleted my account for a reason

Best of all..heart touching and can make you have goosebumps and even can make you cry sentimentlely

Anyone remember the alternate ending? - Gehenna

2 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

3 Silent Hill 3

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

Good, but not as good. - GehennaTheSecond

4 Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

The most saddest horror game ever...

Yea very shattered memories

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

5 Silent Hill 4: The Room

Better than SH1 for sure
It's good to experiment with game formula, and I can't help but feel that this laid the groundwork for PT

This Silent Hill is completly different from the others for many reasons

The Game mechanics are really good : Red Pages, Hauntings, and other stuff

The Cinematics are really well made and scary.

Silent Hill 4 have many connections with the 2 and 3

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.

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

6 Silent Hills: P.T.

Short and sweet. Scariest out of all of them

Mysterious story, hidden message, bizarre, and hideo kojima

If we are talking about fear...
this is the one...

Pt for life

7 Silent Hill: Origins

Should be in top 5

8 Silent Hill: Downpour

Best Silent Hill I've ever played so far. It goes back to the Silent Hill 2 style and it makes it even better... I don't know why it's at position "6"!

This is one of the best in my opinion. It has a great story following convict Murphy Pendleton, great monster design "such as the Doll and the Bogeyman", diverse locations, phenomenal side quests, and creative puzzles. The characters don't appear as emotionless statues like they do in homecoming. The main character actually reacts how a normal person would if they were in the situation. This is the most underrated silent hill and a must have for a fan.

Sixth? Silent hill 3 and silent hill 4 are garbage. Downpour has one of the best stories around, it goes back to psychological horror and has a great atmosphere and voice acting. This should be higher.

9 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.
