The History of Horror Games

Was that a scream you just heard in the distance? Did that shadow move or are the lights merely playing tricks on you? Is there something lurking in the fog or around that corner? If you've played a horror game before, there's a very good chance you've asked yourself these questions at some point. Of all the genres out there, from fantasy RPGs to modern warfare shooters and everything in between, survival horror is unique because it can awaken our most basic of animal instincts: fight or flight. The normal reaction to some twisted creature jumping out at you is to run, and when you're low on ammo and health that's usually the only way to survive. But how did it start, and more importantly, how did it become the more action-oriented genre we see today? (Alone in the Dark, Dead Space, Fatal Frame, PC, PS3, Resident Evil, Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill, Wii, Xbox 360)
