Favorite Silent Hill Game

United States

I've played (or watched someone play because I kept freaking out and closing my eyes) all of the Silent Hill games that are released so far - thought I only got halfway through 4. I love these games. They're beautifully done and rely heavily on psychological horror rather than just scary monsters. I have to say my favorite is 2. The symbolism was so striking in that one, and I would love to play through it again and get a different ending. I loved the way everything was connected and how as the plot unfolded you could see exactly why things were the way they were. So which one's your favorite, and why?

I'd say 2 (beautiful, seeing new mnsters and scerenery, plus some old PS1 scenery in crist PS2 graphics), and 4, because of th story. Sadly, I didnt enjoy the film... they spent less than 30 sconds on each monster. Have a nice day!

I really, really want to finish 4. Sadly, the game belonged to my ex and now that we've broken up I don't have access to it. Haven't seen the movie, either, not sure if I will or not. Thank you!

I also like the second one.I like the graphics and color scheme. I played it on the playstation and I want to play it on x-box because they added new things to it. Silent Hill games can have an effect (sadness,disturbed feeling) that stays with you after you play it. It seems real,and like a movie.Silent Hill 2 can be depressing but that shows how powerful the story/images are. I think I've gotten all endings. The funniest one is the Dog Ending.They are also making Silent Hill:Origins for the PSP,it looks cool. I wish they would put it on x-box or playstation,is anyone going to play that when it comes out next year?
