Surviving the Horror of Modern Progress

Most agree that Resident Evil 4 killed survival horror, but was it a cold blooded murder or a merciful euthanising? LaserLemming looks into just why survival horror's condition appears, at the very best, terminal while also running the investigative magnifying glass over some of the modern games trying to move the genre in new directions while remaining true to its terrifying roots. (Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Culture, Fatal Frame IV, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, Forbidden Siren, Industry, Penumbra Collection, Resident Evil 4, Siren )

Resident Evil 4 was the best of the series...

Agreed, but I do love the earlier RE games as well.

As do I, although going back to play them now. It's just plain awful control-wise.

The Wii version had fantastic controls. It was so satisfying to shoot an enemy in the knee and then pop him in the head.

Wasn't so flash at the time, either! :D
