Silent hill 2 is one of the scariest games I have ever played. Even though it doesn’t have any jump scares and came out in 2001 on the PlayStation 2, it manages to hold up by its unrelenting atmosphere and the constant scare of the unknown. The story of Silent hill 2 is that you are James Sunderland who just received a letter from your wife who died three years ago, saying that she is in the town Silent hill waiting for you. Silent hill 2 is the perfect sequel by taking what worked from the first and by putting it in its own self-contained story, with the only connection between the two games being the town. The game also has a great narrative with all the enemies having deeps amounts of symbolism. For example the main enemy who keeps reappearing is a reflection of the main character, James Sunderland.
