Silent Hill (サイレントヒル Sairento Hiru?) is a survival horror video game series consisting of seven installments published by Konami and its subsidiary Konami Digital Entertainment. The first four games in the series, Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2, 3 and 4, have been developed by an internal factor, Team Silent (a development staff within former Konami subsidiary Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo). The latter three games, Silent Hill: Origins, Homecoming, and Shattered Memories, as well as the upcoming eighth and ninth installments, Downpour and Book of Memories, respectively, have been developed by various external developers.
Silent Hill is set in a multiverse consisting of reality and two alternate dimensions whose form is based on the series' eponymous fictional American town. The series is heavily influenced by the literary genre of psychological horror, with its player characters being mostly "everymen", in contrast to action-oriented survival horror video game series featuring combat-trained player characters, such as Resident Evil, which is widely regarded as Silent Hill's "strongest" rival.
The first Silent Hill game was for the Playstation.
Silent Hill was adapted into a movie in 2006.It was poorly recived by critics.There has been rumor that the film will have a sequel.
