MediaKick "Survival horror as a genre has lost its way. We’ve seen at least two trends that stray away from the original idea come to light in recent times; namely Resident Evil’s more action orientated approach and other survival horror games lose their identity by relying on cheap scares. But then again, horror as we knew it is changing in similar ways. Even the arbiter of perhaps the scariest Science Fiction/Horror hybrid – Ridley Scott, is returning to the genre with the bleak looking Prometheus. We’ve seen signs of the more psychological horror games resurfacing over the years, but they never match the truly horrifying scale of terror that films and books can achieve."
