If you ask Silent Hill fans what the best Silent Hill is, they’re likely to argue between Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. While we admit that either would be a fantastic choice for Halloween, our personal favorite is Silent Hill 2. Sometimes, what you need on Halloween is a bit of psychological horror, and here, Silent Hill 2 delivers.
The town, after all, could be said to be populated by your personal demons and worst fears. In this case your baggage is related to your dead wife. You play as James Sunderland, who receives a letter from said wife telling him she’s waiting in Silent Hill. We personally would've ignored such a letter, loved one or no, but James has to find out what happened to his wife--and the revelation is stunning. Admittedly, the game doesn’t actually play particularly well, but the storytelling, psychological horror, symbolism and atmosphere make up for that in spades.
