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.
