Will Current-Gen Consoles Revive the Survival Horror Genre?

Unfortunately no they wont because developers have lost the ability (or dont want to) make good horror games anymore and its a massive shame..The loss of quality and quantity of Horror and Rpgs over the last 8-10 years has been shocking with devs chasing the Call of duty audience and yearly games to make a quick buck.. I dont know if really good horror games will ever return with a good quantity but alien isolation was a good start.

I also recommend the STALKER series as one of the best and most atmospheric horror games i have ever played and you can get all 3 of them real cheap now.

But this year had some really good amount of horror games even if most of them were Indies but some of them were really great. And totally agree about Stalker , that game is up there with Half Life, System Shock 2, Deus Ex to me and dat Alpha mod. I cant believe it took them 5 years to make it, those guys made me a happy gamer, you should try it.

Oh man Misery 2.0 mod for stalker changed the entire game.. People using it as first time Stalker players are so lucky as they are getting an almost different game..

Alien Isolation was a good horror game and The Evil Within was not too bad. Both had more scares than the last few Resident Evil games.

It's the first year of this console cycle. There aren't supposed to be any definitive games of any genre. There are several survival horror games slated for release in 2015 and beyond;

DayZ, H1Z1, Forgotten Memories, Grave, Human Element, HUNT, Kodoku, Silent Hills, SOMA, and Until Dawn

Survival Horror is coming to consoles whether people believe it or not is irrelevant at this point. People want these games on consoles.
