1-3, Shattered Memories, and Downpour.
We should take away their metal boxes!

"Why are they better on PS2, exactly?"

They aren't. SH2 , SH3 and SH4 are all about the same quality on PC, or better since you can up the resolution. The fog graphical technique used in 2 is not the same in PS2/PC, being PS2 the best tech. But that's not too noticeable.
I can play 3 and 4 in modern OSs without any messing, but I can't in 2, though I haven't bothered to try to fix it.

And my advise is to play 1 to 4. Ignore the rest.
Silent Hill strong point is the ability to disturb you and its unique art assets. No SH game past 4 does that remotely right. Homecoming has some sexy nurses but that's about it.
Shattered Memories isn't even scary, and it's basically an adventure genre title.
The later titles became more action oriented, and TBH, if you're looking for that, then I advise you to just jump to a different series that does that better.

SH3 on the PC so you can use trainers and then still not play anyway because it's too scary even with god mode and infinite ammo. :(

2 - homecoming + high res texture and enb + high res movie patch = next gen
