What is "Survival Horror"?Edit

Survival Horror is a subgenre of horror gaming where the protagonist is thrown into an oppressive or otherwise grim environment where they must use their wits and incredibly limited inventory/arsenal to escape and/or fend themselves from antagonists significantly more powerful and/or plentiful than them.

Action games starring powerful protagonists with sufficient supplies and simply a grim atmosphere like Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil 4, and Doom do not count as "Survival Horror".
