2 was the most successful game in the series so it makes complete sense to remake it. Been a long time since I played 1-3 but story arc wise wasn't 2 a self contained story? Isn't 3 is a continuation of 1's protagonist? If so, this also has a lot to do with it. This isn't exactly a new series so honestly who cares if Empire Strikes Back gets made first? Heard rumors that if this sells extremely well, then a 1 & 3 remake would be the next project from Bloober. Makes fiscal sense.

Yes, 3 is a sequel to 1 once Heather is in her teens. There's references to 2 in part 4 though. Newspaper clippings that talk about Harry Mason.

I think what they should do, and this is going to take a lot of effort which I know Konami won't like :P

Combine 1 and 3 into one single story and remake, have the game start with Harry until a point then jump years so you finish off the game with heather perhaps.

Good for us, bad for them. They’d much rather keep em separate and make twice the money on us for the same amount of content

It’s basically

“SH2 has Pyramid Head, he’s marketable”

Well, he is the most iconic enemy aside from the nurses.

Without googling it can you tell me the standout bosses from 1, 3, and 4?

I'd think because Silent Hill 2 is better, lol
