Think back to when you played games like resident evil 1&2 and silent hill 1&2, what was the one thing these games had that current gen horror games dont?
Atmosphere, it was little things like the right piece of music playing at the right time. They had a brooding, dark atmosphere that current gen games are sorely laking.

It sucks big time.
I'm a massive horror fan an ive played
nothing this gen that compares to the old
classics like resident evil,silent hill and fatal frame.The closest game ive been to being scared was amnesia and that wasn't as scary as the classics last gen in my opinion.The only thing i had to look forward to was silent hill HD collection and we all know how that's turned out >_>
I just hope that developers can stop thinking about money all the time and create something truly scary again for us horror fans.

Quite the contrary: that standards of people have gone up. Games that were considered to be scary or even classics are now just looking bland.
If one were to play old Resi, SH or Alone in the dark games they will notice that something is "missing".

Although Fatal Frame 2 still gives me the creeps...
