Dias de Terror: Top Ten Survival Horror Titles

Survival horror is a sub-genre of video games inspired by horror fiction that focuses on survival of the character as the game tries to scare the player(s). Although combat can be a part of the game play, the player is made to feel less powerful than in typical action games, because of limited ammunition, health, speed, vision, or other limitations. The player is also challenged to find items that unlock the path to new areas, and solve puzzles at certain locations. Games make use of strong horror themes, and the player is often challenged to navigate dark maze-like environments, and react to unexpected attacks from enemies.
