What happened to Scary Games?

For some time now, the horror genre of games has been dwindling in the background of the major leagues of the gaming community.

EA and Capcom have both ruined Dead Space and Resident Evil by removing the horror aspect and making it more about action and co-op. Looks like The Last of Us is our only hope for horror now and it won't disappoint. I know it's not all horror but it does have some horror aspects in the game as far as I can tell from the numerous previews that I can't stop watching.

Project Zwei is a another title that may address the horror crisis for consoles.

Companies think we will only play a game if it is based around action.... I mean its not like Dead Space or Resident Evil were selling perfectly fine or anything. Yet what games in those franchises do I not own as of now? Yep, I have all the others.

Seriously Dead Space 3 had all kinds of horror elements in it, and it was fun, right up until it started purely focuses on enemies shooting back at you.....

Zombi U didn't try hard enough, but it was still a good game, and great concept. Plenty scary.

Q. What happened to Scary Games?
A. They weren't mainstream enough so developers tried to make them more mainstream by removing the horror, and adding action.

The problem is horror fans hate the new games, and action fans have better action games they can play. Developers tried to create games that appeal to everyone but ended up creating games that appeal to almost no one.

Wish Resident Evil gets a reboot and make it scary, Silent Hill to go back to it's japanese roots instead of having western developers do it, Dead Space back to Single Player Horror, Fatal Frame new PS4/720/WiiU Version, or a new Siren Game, gosh there are so many good old horror games why did they stop making them scary as hell.
