Games That Redefined the Survival Horror Genre

There are many games out there that attempt to emote a realistic feeling of fear. It can be done in such a way that the player becomes very afraid and freaked out. It can also be done in a way that the player feels very anxiety, very tense and jumps up several times when the terrorize monster appears. Other way that it can be done is by making the monsters themselves look as scary as possible. For example, if a player built a truly terrifying environment, the monster would be able to swimvell units, breaks down walls and instances of monster yearn.

Resident Evil 1

Perhaps one of the best games to ever come out for the survival horror gaming genre. This game literally gave birth to the survival horror genre and is the granddaddy of survival horror games. The player will find himself in a whole new world very much like the fictional world of the Resident Evils. This game has a great story line that keeps the player going and revolves around a first person shooter format. The horror aspects of the game come from a series of misinterpretations by the character. There are misinterpretations such as an associates killing another associate’s family member and an attempting to escape from underfed. The music and Written dialogue is also top notch. This was one of the first games to introduce a save feature.

The game ‘uahed’ ( omit the ‘u’ key) introduced a new dynamic to the first person genre. The fear element was taken up a notch and put into a very realistic perspective. The ‘uahed’ key phrase became associated with the overall tension built up in the game. This also led to the introduction of many other first person genres.


Do you know that when you press the up arrow, the character acceleration is amplified? Most people don’t know but to reach a certain ‘iddy’ or to go up a level you must increase your level by killing off monsters. This starts off in the first person shooter genre. Then the upgrade packs were added to continue the quest. Indeed, there are very few games that start off so well.

Fatal Frame

This is a very unusual game that has very little to do with typical first person shooter or adventure games. The view of the ‘ skeptic’ usually shifts to the killing element. You can switch between the skeptic and the killer and even between the reality of the situation. Of course, there is the puzzle where you must kill as many monsters as possible to get to the key that will unlock the path you need to get to the next level.

Resident Evil

 Planned by Capcom, this game is considered to be one of the greatest of the survival horror games. The is the best seller of all time and has two versions: standard and magnum. This is the version that was originally released in the United States and Japan.

 Silent Hill

That is a game that has a main character that would be considered to be a first person shooter and very few people would disagree. Silent Hill is scary. The terrain is consists of many forests that are full of creatures that are almost impossible to kill, unless you have the powers of a demon hunter. The main character carries a shotgun and is more or less a monster. The monsters move in a very realistic way and the lighting is very good as well.

These are just some of the games that have either been created out of fear or to scare a person or prevent someone from being scared. These games have taken the internet over and over again. Those that own a PlayStation or even those that are playing on a PlayStation 3 are almost all assured of a scare or two from these games. The videos that you will find of these scares are quick and simply because they are brief, but still catchy. The answers that come up when you watch them may be the answer that you want to hear. Maybe you want to hear a horrifying moment together with the fear, or maybe the fear is merely the answer to the mystery that you see in the image. Either way, there is something out there for you. These scare scenarios are extremely creepy and funny at the same time.

Scary games and Halloween games are usually two of the most popular types of scary games that there are to choose from. Do you like to play games for Girls? There are a lot of girl’s friendly scary games out there. Maybe you like to play scary games to Guys? There are a lot of scary games out there for machos that like to play to implied violence. There are games even made for Girls that are just dress up games, but a twist on these games is that they add a little more shiver down your spine when you play. The dress up games include changing your character into a couple different characters that may or may not be related to the original character. But that is what makes them so fun, right?
