Shinji Mikami: There aren’t any real survival horror games in the world right now

Hard words said by the father of the survival horror genre Shinji Mikami (you know, the creator of the original Resident Evil saga), that after officially announcing his new project, The Evil Within, published by Bethesda, had a little talk with IGN guys. Here’s what he said:

“For me, personally, why I came back to survival horror is that survival horror as a genre is becoming all action now. There aren’t any real survival horror games in the world right now. That is the biggest motivation for me. Having the player pick up the controller and being genuinely able to say ‘Wow, I haven’t played a game this scary in ages!’, that is what we are after. That is the main thing we are focused on”

We really hope that Mikami will deliver us a splendid old-school survival horror, but till 2014 we can just wait and cross our fingers!
