While I am a fan of the Resident Evil series I have never actually considered them to be “scary” as a lot of other fans do. Sure zombies dogs suddenly jumping through windows is startling but that’s about it. I have always looked at the series as more of a gruesome action game than actually scary. Recent entries in the series (namely 5 and 6) did more to make Resident Evil more of an action game with fights inside of volcanos, unrealistically muscular characters and yes boulder punching (Resident Evil 5, I can’t make this stuff up). It is safe to say that over the years Resident Evil has strayed far away from its original survival horror roots. That is until now. With Resident Evil 7 Capcom has not only gone back to the roots of the series, they have made a game that literally had me shook all the way until the end.
