The survival horror genre is a subgenre of video games, literature, and film characterized by its intense focus on creating an atmosphere of dread, vulnerability, and isolation. It often revolves around the struggle for survival against formidable and often grotesque adversaries, whether they be supernatural creatures, mutated monstrosities, or psychological horrors. Players or protagonists are typically thrust into hostile environments where resources are scarce, forcing them to make strategic decisions about combat, exploration, and resource management. The genre often employs a deliberately paced narrative, emphasizing suspense and tension-building elements to elicit fear and anxiety in the audience. Notable examples include iconic titles like “Resident Evil,” “Silent Hill,” and “Amnesia: The Dark Descent,” which have shaped the genre by effectively intertwining atmospheric storytelling, limited resources, and spine-chilling encounters, providing players with an immersive and adrenaline-inducing experience.
