With all this hype surrounding the newly-announced Resident Evil 6, the talk about survival horror has been quick to come up. The gaming community has been pretty vocal about their thoughts and adamant that survival horror is dead, given the trailer’s explosive action and adrenaline-fueled moments. With the more recent Resident Evil games and even Dead Space, action has definitely take a bit more of a prominent role within this category of games. The stealth genre gets similarly inspected, with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and Splinter Cell: Conviction being front runners in this argument. Have these genres been killed off, fallen “victim” to modern game design? No, they’ve just evolved and have been bettered for it.
