Resident Evil VII (Demo)

I’d never describe myself a fan of the series, but I have spent time playing every game (except the 6th one), although I don’t think I’ve ever finished one – and my favorite of all of them was Code Veronica on the Dreamcast. I was curious to check out the demo that was released this week during E3 for the upcoming Resident Evil VII, and having played through it, I have to say that what they’re doing with the franchise – at least in this short peek – is pretty interesting, and it’s really something that needed to happen, before it just continued in the action-heavy direction it was heading. That being said, I won’t be playing the full game when it comes out. Even though I watch horror movies without blinking an eye, there’s something about playing a horror game – I guess it’s the fact that you’re drawn in more deeply, by your interactions and decisions – that stresses me out too much, and so I don’t have fun playing them. I was pretty spooked playing RE7, so I think it’s on the right track.
