Survival horror is a subgenre of action-adventure video games heavily inspired by horror fiction. It is typically focused on the character’s survival as the game continuously tries to scare him/her with either graphics or sound effects. Although combat can be an integral part of the gameplay, the player is rarely in control of it (unlike in the typical action game). The reasons behind this are limited ammunition, poor vision, and various other obstructions preventing player's interaction with the in-game world. The player also needs to find certain items which then allow him/her to unlock the path to new areas and therefore make progress in the game. Survival horror makes use of many horror themes (e.g. dark maze-like environment, unexpected attacks from enemies, and dynamic music).
The franchises like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and Alone in the Dark are considered to be the best survival horror video games of all time.
Do you like to be afraid? Games Republic has survival horror games for every PC and console gamer.War. War never changes. Every time you play a Fallout game, those legendary words are coming out of the speakers. Fallout is a franchise consisting of eight post-apocalyptic role-playing video games created in 1998 by Interplay Entertainment. All events in the series are set in the 22nd and 23rd century. It’s a dystopian, retrofuturistic world heavily influenced by the America’s post-war culture (a unique combination of hope, technology, fear, and nuclear annihilation).
The Fallout series is said to be a spiritual successor of 1988’s Wasteland. Although the game worlds are different, the story, locations, inhabitants, and characters (both playable and non-playable) draw many parallels.
The first two installments in the series, Fallout (1997) and Fallout 2 (1998), were developed by Black Isle Studios and are considered groundbreaking among the RPG fans. Since the release of Fallout 3 (2008) the franchise took a different approach. Fallout games became first-person shooters (with some RPG elements) set in the open world. It made the gameplay more simple and accessible, a fact that was both praised and criticized by the series’ fans. The most recent installment in the series is Fallout 4, released in late 2015.
Every RPG fan knows this series. It’s a legendary brand and a must-have for every true gamer. Check out the Fallout games on Games Republic and enter the Wastelands.Hide
