Capcom has updated its Platinum Titles list, revealing that Resident Evil 7 is its second top selling game of all time.
Not of all time. Resident Evil 6 still sold 9 million https://www.resetera.com/th... Doesn’t make sense to split the sales of the original and the rerelease when you never see companies do that for titles like GTAV & TLOU Still commendable on RE7’s part to sell that many units. You hardly ever see AAA horror games aside from Resident Evil do big numbers these days. Hell you hardly see AAA horror games aside from Resident Evil period
this is the paradox with RE series ....the more they alienate the fans with weirdly bad made RE games ...the more sales they gain......imo RE7 is the worst RE to date ...completely out of touch with the series
So by 'alienating' the [OG] fans they're gaining more fans.... Do you think they see that as a problem?
RE7 wasn't bad though. It was actually pretty awesome imo.
You’re crazy.. it was my favorite re... loved it..
People said the same about RE4... "completely out of touch with the series" What is "real" RE?
@Sonic-and-Crash RE6 killed the franchise RE7 saved the franchise
RE7 was great. It was bloody awesome in VR and the scariest gaming experience by a mile.
There's a lot of people who think of it as one of the best. If anything, RE6 will always deserve to be s**t on. It's the definition of an identity crisis. With RE7, like it or hate it, it knew what it wanted to be, and delivered. Was it a departure from the series? Sure. Was it a great game? I would say yes.
Just wondering, what exactly did you not like about RE7?
RE7 was great on PSVR. I've never been so immersed in an RE.
It is as an individual game release, not as a franchise. The article makes it crystal clear.
I’m aware the article clarifies this. However the headline shouldn’t be worded in such a way that it needs clarification in the first place
Yeah sales of RE6 were quite high End of the day this gen RE2 was the true updated RE game. The game future RE titles should use as a basis
Own a copy on PC and Pro.
Brought it for the VR had to buy new underwear also. was not disappointed
It's a different game in VR. Amazing and petrifying lol
I also enjoy buying new underwear, but not nearly as much as a new bag of socks.
But how? Capcom has been one of my all time favorite brands going back to the Nes days, and I absolutely love every RE game especially the remakes and remasters this gen. I just thought with their great catalog, and rich history they would have sold more games in higher numbers, but maybe I am in the minority.
Yeah, seems a bit off. But who are we? https://vgsales.fandom.com/...
While I kinda disliked RE7 at launch for being RE3 remake short, lacking enemy variety and camera change I've grown to love it. They did make 90% of the RE fan base pay for a feature they couldn't use because they didn't have VR as well. But having said that I'm hyped as hell for REVillage(apparently they don't call it 8...)
No, they made Sony pay for that VR feature. You pay the same price for RE2 which had no vr mode.
Still is one of my favorite Resident Evil games.
Ugh, the amount of dislike I have for this game....hopefully they put the series back on a good track with RE9
One of my favourite games of the gen and one of the best RE games. Well deserved. Can't wait for RE8 Village !
And I still need to play it. I've been waiting to get a vr headset hmmm
