Capcom released a 3 minute trailer for Resident Evil 7 and we saw a whole bunch of nothing.
I wasn’t kidding about the whole bunch of nothing thing. That’s exactly what happened. We saw a scared young woman walking through a house and nothing happened. Take a look:
The only that happened was her getting scared and hiding from enemies. So far this is not a Resident Evil game. No one hides from anything in Resident Evil. Chris Redfield would uppercut whatever was following him straight to hell. Lion would have kicked the living shit out of it.
I understand wanting to go in a new direction with the series, but this isn’t that in my opinion. This is a completely different game using the Resident Evil name. There is no Resident Evil in this game and it doesn’t even look that good. Hiding from enemies is stupid which is why I never got into Outlast.
Trying to force us to be scared by not giving us a option other then to “hide” isn’t scary. It’s stupid and it’s not something I want to see in Resident Evil. Capcom already announced that we won’t be playing as this girl in the main game. Why did they bother showing this trailer then? Just show us the main game and clear up the confusion that is Resident Evil 7 right now because we all think it’s Outlast 2.
The more I learn about this game the more I want to stay away from it and that’s coming from a huge Resident Evil fan.
I miss Shinji Mikami at the helm of these games.
