I dont know, dont have any data on how populare the game series was or how much people like horror anime.

But sure, the story was quite good in the game series, and could make a good anime.
But if the ones adapting it to anime do it wrong, it can become a very bad animation, and therefore not get popular.

This is just speculation so it doesnt mean it would go as i have said.
I haven't heard any rumors of making Silent hill to an anime either.

If it was episodic and each episode showed a new character going insane in the town of silent Hill...

or maybe 4-episode story arcs... kind of like Higurashi.

I think it could do quite well.

It'll be popular because of the name, but I think it'll fail to portray the meaning of the word 'horror'... Anime isn't the right choice for that genre...

Hell, no. I love the series, but I can't see it being as psychologically scary or having the same tone and atmosphere. Although, if it had a similar kind of story like Silent Hill 2 it could possibly be an anime, but as a horror anime, I can't see it being as great as the games.

it depends on the moe-ness level.. jk jk.. but still it really depends on the story i believe

Everyone who said the movie was good fails, the movie was a horrible representation of Silent Hill. It tried to adapt the first game, but made so many unnecessary changes, subtractions, and additions, the movie became a pitiful empty shell of the game.
Seriously, changing The Order into some cliche Christian cult was just so lame.
Then changing Dahlia from the mastermind behind it and making her into some sympathetic character ruins the whole plot and symbolism of Harry's love for Cheryl contrasting to Dahlia's lack of love for Alessa.
That, and taking Pyramid Head out of his symbolic place in James' head was also annoying.
The reason Silent Hill is so great is because of the deep things in it, that was replaced with more American straight-up horror in the film. It was all horrible.
The movie was good as far as a horror movie goes, but as a Silent Hill title, it was horrible.
Never mention it again.

As for a Silent Hill anime, it COULD be good. If instead of trying to adapt a game like the movie did, they came up with a new story set in Silent Hill.
It would be hard to do, but if done right, it could be awesome.
And I'd rather have a continuous plot as opposed to an episodic plot. 24 minutes isn't enough to capture a Silent Hill experience.
A 13 episode anime series could do just the trick though, if they keep it within the game's rules and canon.

tl;dr
Silent Hill Movie sucked
Silent Hill anime could be good if done right.
Everyone should just go out and play Silent Hill 1-3 anyway.
The games will always be better.
