Silent Hill 2, on the other hand, revolutionized the genus of Survival Horror, continuing the legacy of predecessor.Qualified by various media such as "Masterpiece", presented adult issues such as sexual repression, mourning and euthanasia.In Den of Geek they explore what makes it so special: “It is more a supernatural reimagination of crime and punishment, from Dostoevski, and it is not so strictly a work of traditional traditional terror.Sato, when creating history, sought references in the horror genre.However, it was aimed that the argument of the game, as Dostoyevski does in his work, discussed the morality of guilt and the consequences of individuality regarding the justification of selfish actions that are taken in favor of the greater good ”.In the same year we had another game that dealt with loss and mourning: Final Fantasy X.

Devil was acclaimed as a game of the year by various media.Nowadays, it is considered by PC Games as one of the most important PC titles in history by how he took a step further in the multiplayer world at a time when the Internet was without exploring territory: “Like many ofHis contemporaries, devil came with a multiplayer mode that allowed players to connect through a modem or network.But he arrived with a third option: Battle.Net, a pairing service created within the same game ”.Quake, in the same year, also revolutionized the multiplayer panorama.

The fighting genre experienced its own revolution with Street Fighter II: The World Warrior.In Ramamasutra, Yoshinori Ono, producer of the saga, describes why his success: “Street Fighter II has been the first time that I saw that a game forced you to fight with logic, you had to apply a strategy.In addition, your opponent was a person, so you had to understand what their customs were.You had to create tactics addressed to the rival.It was the first game that raised that ".
