Why Resident Evil 7 Will Be A Return To Survival Horror

ThisGenGaming says "With the release of Resident Evil 4 in 2005, the Resident Evil series had changed everything that you knew about the series except the lead character. It was almost unrecognizable as a Resident Evil game, it was a big change but a change that was needed at the time. The series had become tiresome to many, and at a time were survival horror was considered passe. The change proved to be successful as Resident Evil 4 is not only the highest rated Resident Evil of all time, but it’s also one of the highest rated video games ever."

I am hopeful. And maybe RE7 supporting VR would be amazing.

Hopefully Capcom take the great reception it got from it VR Demo game Kitchen and put it to good use in a Resident Evil game.

Relientk771537d ago

Yeah Resident Evil 7 might be in VR

So the horror factor should be there

DarkOcelet1537d ago

Hopefully Capcom get the message and make it Survival horror again, i mean is it that hard to ask for..

Great Atmosphere
Horror Elements
Isolated Environment
Solo Protagonist
Scarce Ammunition
Good O'l Zombies

I don't want them focusing too much on VR they forget other things and make it gimmick like...and I say this because it's Capcom. You know what they are like

As for survival horror they'll SAY it is but I doubt it will be

Said RE5 was going back to its roots...they lied

Said RE Revelation was going back to its roots...they lied

Did exactly the same with RE6 and in some ways Revelations 2

They lie to get old school fans to buy the game again because they think they can please both audiences but you can't. One or the other

No,it not
back when summer 2014 ,they said they will continue with both paths
Main number series - Actions Base
Revelations are Survivor - Horror Base.

RE 5 and 6 are first and second capcom best selling game (game still sell nowadays ).

if we ignore horror element resident evil story is high training people vs evil company (didn't umbrella create Virus and B.O.W.S and them to government/terrorist around the world ?)

Thing is though Revelations still feel action based. More towards horror then the recent main games but nothing really survival about them. They still feel like something you'd find in RE5

RE died for me after Nemesis or I guess ZERO since it still had the good camera. Unless they switch from that damn over the shoulder 3rd person shooter view, not touching a RE game again.

Yes they should, i see a lot of clones on here saying revations was not survival horror but action like five and six smh u guys are idiots. Revelations (the 3ds game) was taking the series back to its original route nust with modernized controll what are you all smoking? Revelation was the last great resident evil game besides Re4.

If anyting they should make 7 like revelations or take it back to the RE 1,2 style.

Im currently enjoying resident evil zero thank you.

Resident Evil 4 was a great game but in my opinion it was a bad Resident Evil title. It detracted from what made the series so enthralling to begin with and it only got worse.
I'm in the camp who thinks this series should be rebooted!
