Resident Evil is coming back in a BIG way. The 7th entry in the series might be just as good if not better than the original itself. What makes this game so special? The answer isn’t as simple as you might think.
The original Resident Evil is regarded as one of the best horror games of all time. The scarcity of resources, chilling atmosphere, and startling jump-scares were expertly combined into an unforgettable game. Over time, the series slowly eked away from its roots as a survival/horror game and turned into a sad, action focused shell of its former self. Resident Evil 7 does an amazing job of taking the series back to its survival/horror beginning.
However, that’s not the only reason this game is posed to be the best horror game of the year (if not of all time). The developers have created a harrowing first person experience (that you can enjoy in VR as well) in a horrifying and claustrophobic environment. The game uses all of the modern gaming technology available to make itself absolutely terrifying. Everything about Resident Evil 7 is downright incredible- and for that it may end up being one of the best of all time.
