Capcom "blown away" by reception of Resident Evil 7 demo

But the director is keen to point out that the demo doesn't represent the entirety of the gameplay experience.

They must have only listened to half of the fans, not everyone including me has responded positively to this massive change in direction.

suli123452889d ago

Half? More like they listened to 20% of the fans cus that shit was terrible.

Id say it's the other way around. Resident evil has been kicking the bucket for years. Some are relating this to the pt reveal. Especially when you have the holy trinity of youtubers, Pewdiepie, Markiplier and jacksepticeye praising it its no doubt millions would follow in their opinion.

@Shin I am glad they are going a different direction, I haven't been interested in the main series for over a decade

bouzebbal2889d ago

Capcom, if only you listened to what early fans want from the beginning..

Austin482889d ago

Look at the dislikes u are the small minorty there is a Hume majority of people that love it so F off lol.

Guess with the disagrees people just can't admit it

This is going to be another situation where people who speak out are personally stacked and disagreed to death but when the game comes out more people will realise we were right

There's a difference between something being good and wanting it to be good


For the last time there is a difference between horror and survival horror. RE was not just a typical jump scare horror game. It;s like the only excuse to defend this "oh they've brought back horror" yeah the wrong type of horror. Jeez.

suli123452888d ago

Everyone saying we we we we we, go fuck yourselves and watch how bad this is gonna be when it comes out. They ruined a terrible formula that was perfect right from the very start. When the resident evil 2 remake comes out i want you to remember these comments and watch how epic its gonna be, but until then enjoy your over squeezed lemon my friends.

JBlaze2262888d ago

Why people complain on this game. They are bringing horror back to the game just what everyone wanted and no its not a PT clone it First person horror was out along time ago before P.T. so its nothing new. I like the new approach to bring back that feel of survival horror and I hope that they keep building on that premise but I hope to see that they bring quick time events that was a nice gimmick that they had.

It's easier to turn a blind eye. This is capcom after all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

NecoTehSergal2889d ago

Cry some more, bet you grew up on RE4,5,6 and have no idea that RE1,2,3 and 0 exist.

-Foxtrot2888d ago

How is saying it's not good means you grew up on the new games

I grew up on the old ones and still hated this as much as I did with RE5 and RE6

SoulWarrior2888d ago (Edited 2888d ago )

Nope, the first one I played was 2 actually and I recently replayed the remaster of the REmake and loved it, try something else other than a childish rhetoric with no evidence whatsoever.

I didn't like 6 or 5 that much either, sorry that I am not a fan of this first person, psychological horror, PT/Amensia direction RE has gone in, I'm not the only one that feels this way. Scary video tapes, close ups of weird faces, mannequins moving on their own? To me this is not Resident Evil at all and the 'demo' felt nothing like an RE game in any way shape or form.

_-EDMIX-_2888d ago (Edited 2888d ago )

@fox- what you played was merely a teaser so who cares? Please stop commenting on a teaser of the game as if it's the final thing as the Director and producer of this game have already confirmed it's going to have limited ammo and weapons and herbs.

You jump the gun way way way too soon on reveals, to the point where you act like you've made up your mind based on a few seconds of something.

Maybe for once wait until you hear all the details to make an informed decision.

When did PT have weapons in it?

_-EDMIX-_2888d ago

@cap- well you've never played "this" as Resident Evil 7 has not released what you played was a teaser so how on Earth can you come to a conclusion based on a game you technically haven't played?

The creators of the game have already stated there's going to be weapons ,ammo ,herbs etc.

So you would have been cool if Resident Evil 7 was another co-op cover based shooter with shit ton of QTEs and zero scares?

Tdmd2889d ago (Edited 2889d ago )

I'd be cool if it was like the tons of other horror games in third person perspective with no co-op or QTE's. You know, like the good old RE used to be? And no, I wouldn't need tank controls or fixed cameras for that to work.
Oh well, I can still have hope for Resident Evil 2 remake, I guess.

NapalmSanctuary2889d ago

@Tdmd One of the benefits of the fixed camera is that it kept emphasis off of shooting, thats one of the things that bothers me about the ots camera.

SoulWarrior2888d ago

No.... I didn't like 5 or 6.. seriously people just because I don't like this direction doesn't mean I play nothing but brain dead shooters.

ZombieGamerMan2888d ago

@ CaptainSellers well son what's the problem then? It's going back to horror with the only real change being that it's in first person and not third

I mean, they got nothing but hate for the past few games so the 20% that were ecstatic is a lot better than the 5% of people who enjoyed their past 2-3 games.

jb2272888d ago

I didn't get the chance to try the demo but the devs have said that it won't necessarily be fully indicative of the final game. Just like P.T. was meant to be more of a prologue to something different, seems like that's what may happen w/ RE7.

I'm personally willing to hold off all judgment until I see the proper game in action...from what I understand this demo won't be a part of the final game. Either way after Capcom ran the series in the worst possible direction w/ parts of RE5 & RE6, I won't criticize them for being bold enough to change up the vision unless it results in something lesser than RE6....I'm not sure that's actually possible though...

zodiac9092888d ago

Yeah but no one, including me cares what you have to say....

-Foxtrot2888d ago (Edited 2888d ago )

Then go away


Awwwww...exaggerations get you no where in arguments princess

zodiac9092888d ago

@-Foxtrot Okay I will, Just as soon as you get a life and stop commenting on EVERY post on N4G.
THEN, I will go away ;DD

Jason_Plays_PC2888d ago

Of course they will listen to the casual non resident evil fans, and not the actual fans...Now they think first person is the way to go. RIP resident evil.

-Foxtrot2888d ago


These new fans probably aren't even fans just PT fans who want a game like it or people who don't know the difference between horror and survival horror
