Survival Horror Isn’t Dead, It’s Just Underground

"Had big budget games kept to the true nature of horror, weaving the sorts of stories that are found in games we now call classics; such as the early Resident Evils, Silent Hill 2, and System Shock 2; Slender: TA may have been just another competent, though unremarkable, example of the genre. As it stands, however, the fact that it’s a struggling breed makes it an unusual experience for most gamers, and since it’s been executed so well, it stands as one of the great games to have come out of the current generation. And so, it raises the question: Will the “industry leading” publishers exhume the corpse of survival horror to breathe some new life into it, or will they leave it down there for the indies to feed on?" - Patrick Waring, Senior Editor at GameCloud. (Industry, Slender: The Arrival)
