I wouldn't call TLoU 'survival horror'. There's very little actual 'horror', if at all. But one thing (among many) that makes it such a great game is the story telling and human drama, just the believable characters. The infected are almost an incidental aside. That right there sets it apart from every other zombie game ever made. Why? simply because in all the other zombie games. The zombies are the main attraction, and you are generally fighting zombies from beginning to end, with two dimensional characters in a lack luster world.
