Shinji Mikami has suggested that the survival horror genre has lost its way.
Mikami said: "My definition of survival horror is that first of all it has to be scary. And then you have some kind of scary creature, and you get a rush from blowing it away. A good balance of those two things is what makes survival horror.
"For me, personally, why I came back to survival horror is that survival horror as a genre is becoming all action now and there aren't any real survival horror games in the world right now. That is the biggest motivation for me."
