Goomba Stomp: "By the early 2000s the modern definition of “survival horror” had been established thanks to the success of games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. There were plenty of clones that stuck to the mold these two franchises established, such as Capcom’s own Dino Crisis and SEGA’s Deep Fear. There are also plenty of games that branched out to do their own thing. Many of these were short-lived franchises, like Parasite Eve, or only saw one game, like Haunting Ground. Tecmo’s take on horror, Fatal Frame, is one of the few games from this experimentation era that came out as a full franchise. It’s a testament to how odd creativity, when combined with good design, can help a series stand out amongst a sea of competitors."
