What beats the game that started it all? How about the sequel that took everything to the next level? Silent Hill 2 was smarter, slicker and more compelling than the original, and it wasn’t afraid to really mess with the player by tackling taboo topics other video games shied away from at the time. Rape, murder, suicide, molestation — that was a brave goddamn game. And of course, it introduced us to Pyramid Head, who would go on to become one of the most iconic monsters in gaming.
That’s my list and I’m sticking to it.
I’m sure you have your own list — that’s okay — I’d very much like to see how you’d rank the Silent Hill games. Obviously, not every game in the series made it here. I skipped some of the lesser known games, like the Japan exclusive Play Novel: Silent Hill, as well as the mobile entries The Escape and Orphan. It wouldn’t be fair to rank those among the ones above.
If you’re interested in a free indie horror game with a definite Silent Hill vibe, Dark Cell fits the bill. The game builds up tension in a unique way, setting up the perfect scare. It also has a freaky prison to explore, and — perhaps unsurprisingly — there’s a super creepy monster chasing your ass pretty much the whole way through. Check it out:
