El33tonline Question of the Day

2012 is the year of survival horror games, no doubt about it.

The long-awaited AMY was recently released (to a bit of a tepid reception), March will see the release of no less than three Silent Hill games, and then in late November, Resident Evil 6 will hit.

Horror or survival horror? Call it what you want but when a behemoth of a monster is barrelling towards you intent on crushing your skull with its reaching tendrils, you’re going to grip the controller very tightly, irrespective of genre!

So here’s a Question of the Day for you:

Do you enjoy horror games?

The popularisation of horror in videogames with titles like Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil began over fifteen years ago, and while the genre has waned and evolved a bit, every year there are at least a handful of games to cater to fans of the genre.

Do you seek these titles out, or are you content to leave them on the shelf in favour of more action and/or family friendly games?

If you enjoy horror and survival horror games, which are some of your favourite? If you don’t enjoy the genre, what makes it so impenetrable for you?
