What has happened to the innovation and populace of the survival horror genre? Have we already hit a standstill with this popular and enjoyable genre?
Well you have games like L4D and Dead Rising that have stepped into that roll, but there not really scary like Silent Hill was.
More to the point they are not survival horror :(
Exactly. They are just shooter games with a couple of jumps. FEAR was scarier than those.
RE5 was more funny than scary I thought, and that's supposed to be the gold standard of the Survival Horror.
Nothing will freak me out like Silent Hill 2 did. The first night of playing that, I got so freaked out that I ended up sticking it in the freezer so it couldn't get me...
All we have today is jumpy-scary. Developers are resorting to cheap tricks to get a scare, which is all that Dead Space was: a cheap scare.
