In Creation Games: When you play a Survival Horror game you expect to be scared. You are expecting to be jumping, screaming and generally just shitting yourself. Well I doubt you'll be screaming (Or literally shitting yourself) but my point still stands, they are supposed to scare you. Through many techniques including atmosphere, sound etc the good ones will have you at the edge of your seat, scared and filled with tension. It's not just horror games that scare you though; plenty of games have horror parts in them, like Thief: Deadly Shadows which the people who played it will know about. Then you get each, individual genre which can surprisingly be scary in a completely different way. This list will talk about how each genre can be scary without even having horror elements within it.
