Resident Evil 7

The 7th main iteration of the Resident Evil series is finally here and it’s a terrifying corker.

You play as Ethan who is searching for his wife who supposedly died 3 years ago. His search takes him to the home of the Baker family which is where the fun begins.

Resi 7 is played entirely in the first person, meaning all the scares are in your face. This is used to terrifying effect during the game since the Bakers like to get up close.

During the game you face each member of the Baker family one at a time. Each attack you in there own unique way. Jack, for example, is a walking tank who relentlessly chases you down. I’ll leave the others as a surprise. 

One of the main concerns before the game was released was people were worried that it would be missing all the things that make a Resident Evil game. Rest assured however that they are pretty much all here. We have herbs, strange doors, weird puzzles, evil experiments, item boxes and very little ammo.

Resident Evil 7 is a brilliant return to form for the series. I’ve already finished the game 6 times and I’m still not bored. Sure the last third or so doesn’t live up to the first two thirds but this is a game that shouldn’t  be missed.

Until Dawn – Horror Games 

Until Dawn is one of the best horror games of recent years. Released in 2015 to plenty of praise and became something of a sleeper hit.

Until Dawn is the story of a bunch of teenage friends returning to the lodge were 2 of their friends were killed. The game takes place over the course of one night with the kids fighting for their lives.

Gameplay is similar to Heavy Rain with plenty of quick time events. However these QTEs never drag the game down and actually manage to enhance the experience. 

One of the best things about the game is that any of the kids can die and the story just carries on without them. This allows for a multitude of endings and plenty of tension if you’re trying to keep everyone alive.

I personally finished the game several times upon release and have decided to go back to it since halloween is just around the corner. 

Until Dawn is an awesome game with plenty of scares and well worth a play.

If you have any suggestions for which horror game I should play next let me know in the comments.
