Good article, but no mention of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth? Shame on them - that's my favorite survival horror title of all time.

Oh yes. Nice one my man. Call of Cthulhu was a classic game. It had some pretty nasty flaws and bugs but had a great scary story. How cool was that one part when the villagers found out about you and started to chase you from building to building? One of the best video game sequences I have ever had.

Many of the games today just don't have it. SIREN was awesome but odd at times and games like Doom 3 are just cheap shots at the genre. It's all about your surroundings and the sounds around you. Dead Space made me jump a few times and was definitely erie.

i loved deadspace ... but the scares got pretty cheap by the end... plus movement restriction and the fact that npc's were almost always across the hall for cutscenes etc was pretty lame... but regardless the first 4 levels were really top notch scary

is a true survival horror game :/

Perjoss3346d ago

the idea of the game is to try and survive the horror of what they did to the RE franchise.

sikbeta3346d ago

For me the survival horror genre start with RE1 go trough Silent Hill (1-4) and end in RE4, the LAST game in the franchise, if you ask me about RE5 I don't know WTF is that game
