Is silent hill 3 the worst game in the series?

Heather finds out why it's true that you shouldn't talk to strangers. Or look in mirrors, quite honestly.

DISAGREE! It's my favourite, I love it completely and I've definitely spent more hours on this game than any other. Heather Mason is the most amazing Silent Hill character, due to her normality I suppose. Claudia just gives you the shivers. I mean, even Douglas seems a perfectly normal guy, and it holds you in suspense about him. This is my favourite game. I found SH1 the worst, if not, SH4. This one was a masterpeice.

EDIT: The gameplay is also fun. Better surroundings than any of the others, I think. Well, the surroundings of SH4 were great, but the game was pretty lame. I didn't like the scenary in Silent Hill 2, so I found the gameplay, monsters and fear in this one great too.

It's the weakest of the other installments, i didn't much enjoy this one i thought it was kinda boring and preachy.

disagree. SH4 is much worse, in my opinion. SH3 has a pretty lame story and whatnot, but it's a fun game.
no longer active. thanks for the memories.

i think sh 2 is the best game in the series and if you think about it sh1 cannot be the worst becuase without it would never have amazing silent hill, i respect your opinion about heather but i think james or henry is the best characters in the silent hill installments i also think they based rose from the movie off of heather, i would have like to have seen a better story and better monster in silent hill 3 i dont like the fact that silent hill like came to her in the mall cause if you thnk about it if she just could have crawled over the van that was blocking the passage she would have never had to go to silent hill, well atleast til she got home to her like house and then it porbally would have showed up there but i do have to say i like how they did that heather was cheryl and they connected 1 and 3, and also they connect 2 and 4, mose people do not relize they connected 2 and 4 but if you remember when you put the canned juice down the trash shoot and you read the news paper it is about walter sullivan, i would also have to say that walter sullivan is one of the best villans in silent hill i do also like the fact that you face a "human form" of a boss

if you thnk about it if she just could have crawled over the van that was blocking the passage she would have never had to go to silent hill
Either way, Claudia and Douglas would have still found her and she'd have still had to have gone to Silent Hill.

And Walter Sullivan isn't much of a big connection with SH2, it just uses a murderers name from a memo. Silent Hill 5 is planning to connect to SH2 with it's plot.

I don't think they ruined Silent Hill 3 with connecting it to the first one. It fit quite nicely. And SH5 isn't connected with the second like the third did with the first. Just the plot is going to be similar, with all it's twists.

Psychological elements are going to came back? Good, i missed that surprise at the end of the 2 game.
I found SH1 the worst
When did you play the first one? Did you play the first one after any of the new installments?

Sh1>Sh2>Sh3>Sh4 IMO

Silent hill 4 was just odd really not particularily frightening. And the characers have less time to develop real dimensionality when
