To be honest, i find the silent hill series a bit overrated. i only like silent hill 2 and 3 and thats about it. now for resident evil, it is creepy and the best game is 4 for its chilling atmosphere and gameplay and that moment when u enter a safehouse with a typewriter in it, i could finally take a breather.
cannot wait for 2013 horror games such as amnesia sequel, slenderman sequel, outlast and more.

Silent Hill 1,2 and 3 are all amazing games and fully deserve the praise they get.
Things started going downhill after Silent Hill 4 and after that it just lost its identity being passed around by different western developers that just didn't get what it was about.

As for Resident Evil the 4th game had its creepy moments but it was nowhere near the horror and tension of previous games. I think the Resident Evil remake on the GameCube is much better. Still a great game though.

The horror genre has been pushed aside this gen for action games due to greedy publishers wanted to make a quick buck.

There are exceptions such as Siren Blood Curse, Slender, Amnesia and a few others but it's a far cry from last gen where there was so many great horror games to play.
Sucks since it's my favourite genre, I'm hoping it makes a comeback next gen with games like "Zwei" by Shinji Mikami http://ic.pics.livejournal.... and hopefully Silent Hill goes back to Japanese developers.

like i said silent hill 2 and 3 are the ones i loved about the series( sorry if i typed like).

Resident evil 4 IS the most tense and best atmospheric resident evil game out there right now. i played the PC version with a few mods of tweaking the graphics and lighting to make the atmosphere more terrifying .

i do agree that they have been changed into action-oriented games( RE5,RE6 DS2 etc).

Yea Res4 was the least tense and least scary of all the ones before it on all systems. I think 4 was a great game but it could vae a differnt name and still be a great game.

Amnesia was great except for the ending, which was quite underwhelming after everything you've been through.

Silent Hill 1 , 2 and 3 are all excellent horror games. Silent Hill 3 is my favorite.

Dead Space 1@2 are this gens Silent Hill successors , both are very good horror games. To bad Dead Space 3 has went co-op although im sure it will still be a good game.
