The Resident Evil 7 Reveal Was Terrible

I’m a huge Resident Evil fan. I love collecting items, ammo, and popping zombies in the kneecaps and running past them as fast as I can. This game is not a Resident Evil game. 

Capcom apparently doesn’t know what to do with Resident Evil anymore. After Shinji Mikami left Capcom the Resident Evil games went downhill. I really enjoyed Revelations 2, but most recent Resident Evil games, excluding the remakes, are bad and this new Resident Evil 7 just looked bad.

It’s first person and looked like another Outlast clone. It didn’t have any Resident Evil in it at all and I’m incredibly disappointed in it. I know it was only a few minutes long so I’m not going to be too critical of the game right now, but it’s hard to get excited after seeing that.

The horror genre is dying in both movies and games in my opinion. Every new horror game wants to be Outlast and instead of Capcom revamping Resident Evil and taking it back to it’s roots we got this. It wasn’t scary and it wasn’t survival horror. I’m not sure what it was, but I know what it wasn’t.

What did you think of the big Resident Evil 7 reveal? I think Resident Evil is a dying franchise and another flop could end the series if Capcom doesn’t get their shit together.

  1. The Resident Evil 7 reveal was superb and absolutely the right way to go about it. After a series of god-awful reveals in the franchise Capcom finally woke up and did something different.

    Only a moron would think the way Resident Evil 7 was revealed was ‘terrible’. You probably like 5 minute-long trailers that show you every single important plot event and detail of the entire feature before you’ve even seen/played it. It’s because of people like you that there’s virtually no mystery left to anything any more as everything is dumbed down and spoon fed to us all to accommodate your short attention spans.

    Or maybe you even prefer the PoS high-octane action Resident Evil games like 4, 5 & 6. In which case, tough luck.

    1. I love how people like you assume to know me by reading a post that I wrote a year ago. You are an idiot :).

      Resident Evil 7 is Outlast with guns. I don’t care if you don’t agree with that and that entire wall of text was pointless. Do you feel better now? Grow up keyboard warrior.

  2. The game IS scary and it IS survival horror. And the teaser won’t be part of the main game. So please stop judging a game that is still on development! At least wait ’till january for the release

    1. But the core game is going to be in first person instead of third person. I’m no longer interested in Resident Evil.

      And I’m not judging the game I gave my honest opinion on what I thought was a really crappy reveal trailer.
