Resident Evil.

Pretty much set up the rules for everyone.

Silent Hill owes far too much to Resident Evil. I also don't think Silent Hill became noteworthy until Silent Hill 2.

*EDIT*

An interesting idea would be to stack the sequels against each other, and compare how each improved, and expanded their franchise. Also, which had the bigger impact as a whole on it's series.

I'm going to have to go with Silent Hill, I am afraid of those games period.

RE1's original play gave scares but not the sick twisted fear Silent Hill delivers. RE is more of a B-movie scare.

The best survival horor game would be RE2. So I don't understand the question.

Your also comparing a game made in 1999, vs a game that was released in 1996, and by 1999 it had 3 RE games out.

As for movies SH movie was much better then any of the RE movies.

can't pick either, too many intended differences.

however, RE has had more games that were better.

Since this is about the original Silent Hill vs Resident Evil, i'm going to vote Silent Hill. Sadly in the long run Resident Evil as a series held up better.
