List Rules Any video game is the survival horror genre

These are the best survival horror games ever to hit gaming consoles. These scary video games take you out of your element to fight evil forces, and this list includes zombie games, RPG video games, and are some of the most addictive games of all time. Survival horror games are classified by their ability to make the player feel less powerful because of limited ammunition, health, speed, or a multitude of enemies. The best survival horror games of all time strike the right balance between making the player feel out of control and like they can still beat the game.

The survival horror genre has been prolific since it's inception during the days of the original Playstation. Early games combined the elements of slasher films, science fiction, and haunted house stories, and other horror games included monster adversaries as well as varying degrees of gore or violence. Popular series such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill and releases like Amnesia: The Dark Descent are widely considered the most terrifying and groundbreaking of this killing games genre, which is constantly testing its own boundaries.
