When it comes to horror, fewer video game franchises have a better reputation for terrorizing players than Silent Hill. Since 1999, the small town of "Silent Hill" has been a hotbed for bizarre creatures, mysterious deaths, and some seriously disturbing happenings. And we've loved it ever since it debuted on the original PlayStation in the '90s. With each subsequent release, we've hungrily jumped on each game, eager to have the living hell scared out of us, and begin to mark down the best Silent Hill games during each harrowing journey.

Unfortunately, while there have been several Silent Hill games over the years, not all of them share. Like any long-running series, Silent Hill has grown and changed over the years, and its changes have drawn their fair share of praise and detractors. The Silent Hill of today is not the same as it was when it began, and it’s still evolving. One day we may even get a new game if we keep holding out hope (the Silent Hill 2 remake shall suffice, for now).

But which games are the best out of the core selection of Silent Hill entries? Which ones are stinkers, and which should you consider playing first? More importantly, which Silent Hill game is the best of the best? I've got you covered with our rundown of all the worst to best Silent Hill games, ranked. Stick around and see if your favorite makes the grade.
