A four hour demo of Resident Evil 7 is one of the best things I’ve played this year

Games Radar: Horror games should make you feel scared. And Resident Evil 7 does ‘scared’ very well. I jumped a lot, flat out screamed a few times and, when playing in VR, flailed uselessly at the air under my chin as a mutilated, regenerating corpse lifted me up by the neck. That bit was horrible.

And it was all brilliant.

sorry, after resident evil 5 and 6 i was done with this franchise. reading the reviews of 7 it reads like it is a new game with the resident evil moniker attached to it. it is not my fault that they are too scared to start an entirely new franchise. their approach i find more than questionable. other games are scary, too. so, i will keep my wallet firmly closed on this one. if you all don't mind, so be it, just don't be butthurt when the game got released, you shelled out the retail price, just to realize that you bought an abomination.

Did you actually watch the video? If you did you'd have noticed how the guy states several times how much it feels like a RE game. It's the same universe, just a different perspective.
The game is looking amazing, better than any RE game since a decade or so but there will still be people who will find something to complain because of whatever reason.

I also initially disliked 5 and 6 a lot the first time around but I'm currently playing thru the whole series again and am on 5 right now and have found a whole new appreciation for it. Playing them all close together instead of years apart has given me a new appreciation for the entire story as well. I like that it all starts out small and contained to a small mountain town and by RE5 it's gone full global bio terrorism. Now with 7 it's going back to what looks like a smaller contained story again. Every preview I have read says it's more like the original than any of the other sequels before it and to me that's great.

Looks and sounds awesome - the shakeup the series needed after the decline in 5 & 6.

When asked about how it looks in PSVR, the guy didn't really say it looked worse, but different. I'm expecting this be the game more than anything else to solidify PSVR in 2017. That's when I'll be putting my money down on it.

Cyberpunk and No Man's Sky have to be up there. We're lucky and cursed, equally, to have games that can be updated now. For folks old enough to remember the Sega/SNES into PS1 and even 2 eras, if a game came out that was half baked (*cough*Angel of Darkness*cough*) that was it, no redemption. At the same time, having the option for updates shouldn't be an excuse for half assing games.

I remember when the Nintendo Seal of Approval meant something.

All those games had to release without bugs.

Comebacks shouldnt be a thing in videogames. Just saying.
