Resident Evil and The History and Decline of Survival Horror

Gamr Mag Writes: "In the early to mid 90′s, the survival horror genre was on the rise. Popular games like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and Clock Tower were showing the gaming community that survival horror was a genre that need not be ignored. Silent Hill and Resident Evil in particular launched what would be very profitable franchises that still release titles today on an annual basis." (Alone in the Dark, Amnesia: Dark Descent, Clock Tower, Culture, Fatal Frame, Parasite Eve, Resident Evil, Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill)
