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.The Elder Scrolls (or TES) is a big franchise consisting of open-world action RPGs developed and published by Bethesda. The series is known for its focus on free gameplay and highly detailed open worlds. The last three installments of TES (Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim) won Game of the Year awards. The entire series has sold over 42 million copies worldwide.
The Elder Scrolls are typical role-playing games, although they often include various elements from action and even adventure games. Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim are all focused on creating and developing a playable character. Every TES game has a skill system and the more a certain skill is leveled, the more it helps to level the character.
The world itself can be described as one of high fantasy with multiple influences from different cultures. Many races exist in the world of The Elder Scrolls, both typical for high fantasy (humans, orcs, and elves) and new (lizard-like Argonians, who are lizard-like and cat-like Khajiit). There is also magic, mythical creatures (dragons), various powerful factions (Mages Guild, Dark Brotherhood, etc.), cities, strongholds, and plot elements driven by legends and prophecies.
