    Anyone played it and have some feedback?
    I want a scare factor and just want to have a feel or running around with just a pistol.
    Too much of that automatic gun firing these days.

    I held back on buying it after seeing the enemies. They look like walking garage which doesn't scare me.

    If you want scare factor, play Outlast - you can get the trinity for $30. I thought RE7 was way overrated. The controls are classic RE - garbage. It's a pretty game and definitely gave me the creeps but there are much better ones out there.

    I think they have a demo. Seemed ok but that shit is honestly just to scary for me. The only way I can play those games is by putting it on mute.

    It is indeed scary as shit. I can only play in small bursts because it makes me incredibly anxious and sweaty.

    the monsters don't look scary to me though. maybe the thrill with music is good but idk enemies don't look scary at all.

    Play it with a good set of headphones at night, you'll be extra careful turning corners and opening doors.

    I love scary games, but this is how I thought. This game had what felt like a lot of jump scares and playing a game that long with constant threats of that became bothersome. After a while it wasn't enjoyable. Also, this game is stingy with the ammo so it was definitely survival horror, but dodging enemies was a real pain in the ass so it felt like you were obligated to fight them.

    Lots of potential with this game, but I didn't care for the actual execution.

    I loved it, but I'm an old school RE fan who hated the action ones. It's an acquired taste if you got into the series with all the COD bullshit in 5 and especially 6.

    I'm a pretty big resident evil and most definitely enjoyed it. It is a little short in my opinion. There are some issues such as lack of enemy variety, some unexplained things story wise, and again short. I think I beat it 6 or 7 times to platinum the game. There is going to be free content for download in December of this year so hopefully that will expand and explain a little more story wise.


    Great game and definitely a step in the right direction. Really ready for the 2 remake and if does well hopefully 3.

    It was confirmed last year I believe. There hasn't been much of if any information since then but it is supposed to be in development.

    I would guess the release will be sometime next year or at least I hope it is.

    Resident Evil 7 is brief but really good. The first part of the game especially is a tense, creepy experience.

    How are the guns in RE7? Can you upgrade them and add attachments and stuff?

    They are ok. Seeing as how you are basically an unknown guy and not anyone with a military background the guns are somewhat limited. I believe they are good for setting even then somewhat exaggerated as to what is realistic. You cannot upgrade guns as you could in say 4 or 5.

    Agreed and agreed. I'm actually replaying RE1 - RE: CV right now (RE1 HD on Steam and the rest on the Dolphin GC emulator).

    My issue with RE7 is that it's too creepy. It perfectly capture the rundown and creepy environments of Condemned: Criminal Origins with similar gameplay.

    What I am noticing with the first 4 games is that while the environments are also rundown to a degree, they are also very interesting and not just dark and disgusting like RE7. This makes it a lot less scary but also more entertaining. A Mansion, Underground Lab, Police Department, Racoon City, Prison, Arctic Facility, etc are are much more creative than the estate in RE7. I hope they go back to their roots in the next game. I don't like RE 7 very much. I liked RE 4 and RE 5 much better as far as the full 3D games go.

    I get real anxious playing these types of games. Not really scared, just jarred, ever since RE2 on N64 when I was in 8th grade.

    However, I LOVED the Dead Space series. The Sci Fi world, the gameplay, and the incredible art style all drove me forward. Loved DS1, and Really loved DS2 and 3, because they were a bit more action oriented, and expanded the story.

    You guys play the Dead space games?

    I've played the Dead Space games and I agree that they were far less anxiety inducing. You must also have enjoyed the Metro games because they also are less tense overall, yet are overwhelmingly immersive. And if you haven't, you must fucking play them ASAP.
