Does Survival Horror Really Still Exist?

"...It's dark, you've got a weak flashlight, a short knife, maybe a length of steel pipe you picked up along your way. And you have a sinking feeling that at the end of the next corridor, death is lurking in the shape of a shambling, deformed monster. But you press on through the dispassionate madness, driven by unraveling mysteries and the unresolved ghosts of your own past.

This is survival horror – does it still exist?"

Settle down Kotaku. Bunch of nerds I swear. Dead Space looks amazing, so much so, I think it might reshape the horror genre considering Capcom have dropped the ball with RE5 gameplay.

Survival Horror games for me, need to be less about pointless inventory management and ridiculous puzzles, and more about creating a terrifying game that scares the bajeezus out of anyone that gets involved in the game.

Resident Evil = Horrific
Siren = Scary
Silent Hill = Terrifying
Condemned = Frightening
F.E.A.R. = Frightening Action
DeadSpace = Sci-Fi Terror

RE5 = Dog Shat
