>As an Art Director, it may make sense for Ito to draw Silent Hill 2 as stuck in the 70s for that reason.<
Honestly, I think the reason Ito has said what he said is because the scenery and town of SILENT HILL 2 was predominantly inspired by the film Jacob's Ladder, set in 1975. Sure, still not early-'80s. But it's very much the aesthetic of the town. And, as you said, the hospital depicted in the game is very much reminiscent of Jacob's hospital, before the shift he experiences—incredibly outdated, especially.
