27. Silent Hill 2 (PS2)

As scary as Resident Evil 4 was, it can’t hold a candle to Silent Hill 2. While RE4 had you peeing your pants, SH2 will have you crapping them. The story so far is that James’ wife has passed away due to an illness, but he miraculously gets a letter in her handwriting telling him to meet her in their “special place” the town Silent Hill. Once you get to Silent Hill to find her though, things aren’t quite as you remember it, with deformed creatures running around, and an executioner wearing a pyramid mask chasing you with a giant cleaver. The only real problem with this game is the gameplay and puzzles you come across… they suck. The puzzles don’t make any sense (just wait until the juice box puzzle) and the gameplay is slow, tedious and awkward. So, why is this on the number 27 spot? It’s because of the story. The ending of this game made me cry it was so emotional. No game before or since has done that, and I suspect none ever will. Seriously, grab a tissue box.
