Never Mind The Horror, Just Try To Survive! – A Look at the Survival genre

ChR0n1k writes, "Resident Evil may not have invented the scary video game, but it certainly did the most to popularize and define the genre. When ammo is scarce, heavy weapons are just the dream of some doomed space marine, and the enemies won’t stop coming you know you’re in the grips of survival horror. But what happens if you take away the pistols and crossbows? What happens if you remove the hordes of shambling undead, the rampaging herd of dinosaurs, or the troupes of moaning ghosts? Excise the ‘horror’ and the game suffers for it, right?" (Nintendo DS, PS2, Retro)
