In a lengthy personal blog post defending Dead Space 3’s action bent, Gears of War creator and self-professed horror fan Cliff Bleszinski has said triple-A doesn’t really support true survival horror any more. “The $60 disc based market horror doesn’t fly – it’s the ultimate ‘Campaign Rental’ that’s played for two days and traded in and I’m sure EA knows this. When we’re fully digital we’ll see more true horror games coming back. Look at Amnesia and Slenderman on PC,” he said.
