As a rule of thumb, a game typically labeleled Action Horror is not Survival Horror. This includes games such as ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', which, despite keeping the tense atmosphere of the previous games, has the player sitting on a pile of ammo and supplies by comparison, making it a different genre to its UrExample predecessors. In order to minimize confusion, try looking at the protagonist's despair; if the protagonist is oppressed and their major issues seem too petty for action games (extreme scarcity of ammunition & supplies, very tough enemies regardless of difficulty or relentless attacks by merely dangerous ones, enormous objectives, etc.), then you may be looking at survival horror.

->''"Crushingly, ''[[[VideoGame/{{AMY}} Amy]]'' is also one of the few recent survival horror games beside ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent Amnesia]]'' that actually is survival horror, and not just a shooter that ate some marinara sauce too quickly."''

* The ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' games and their spinoffs carry Survival Horror elements into a strategy game, requiring you to keep soldiers alive (generally) and manage your faction's strategic resources (budget, ordnance, research, approval ratings, etc.) in order to fend off humanity's extermination or enslavement at the hands of an AlienInvasion.
