Why is it that most anime and manga in the 'survival game' genre are considered shit on /a/?
because it predictable and shit
Because most of them are shit. They always take a premise and then either they dwell on it (which you shouldn't do if your premise isn't solid as fuck) or they go into tangential directions. Dragon Head and I Am A Hero, for example, are pretty good.
