One of the greatest exponents of horror in video games is Silent Hill. Konami bet in 1999 on psychological fear, as opposed to the bet of Capcom con su saga Resident Evil. And the result was shocking, creating behind it a series of high-level sequels until the Japanese giant delegated to other studios until we had the biggest disappointment of our life with the cancellation of PT, the one that was going to mean his triumphant return with Silent Hills.
Counting official deliveries and spin-offs there are more than a dozen games, and in view of the runrún with Abandoned
What is the best Silent Hill and why?
Here Ari was the first person to break the ice with the question, with a mention of his answer from the last week’s debate on Metal Gear:
Again (comparing to the MGS case) I will have to opt for the original, the Silent Hill 1 PS1 was the one that innovated, the one that introduced the city; and its history, setting and music were spectacular. The first time I felt terror in a video game and it marked my childhood (and my nightmares). Little more I can say, although the others who continued the saga were memorable too, the first had that aura of mystery and just remembering the music of the intro makes my hair stand on end. An unforgettable and unforgettable experience.
Amadeus_dark, meanwhile, pulls a bit of joke saying …
Undoubtedly this one: Silent Hill for Pachinko Machine.
Obviously, it wasn’t true. He fully agrees with Ari:
Now seriously, I’ve only played the first one and it’s a great game.
Although he has only enjoyed the first 1999 Silent Hill
As to alberto_luengo, his heart is divided:
Rationally, the 2. Emotionally, the 1 with its silent piano puzzle, its baby cries and its ending UFO.
At iGamesNews we made our own “worst to best” list on Silent Hill, but now we would like to hear your opinion in the comments to see if there is unanimity on the first two Silent Hill. What is your absolute favorite?
