Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
The Resident Evil series has had quite a lot of ups and downs since its first title released back in 1996, mainly due to the inconsistent tones and genres the franchise has explored. Now, over 20 years later, the seventh core installment looked to bring survival horror back in full force. Given that the horror genre has been wavering within the triple-A space for some time now, Resident Evil 7 marked a possible return for more studios to produce terrifying games.
Thankfully, Resident Evil 7 was both a financial and critical success, as the latest entry was hailed for its return to the roots it helped to define in the original Resident Evil game. This could also spark the return of other classic horror titles such as Silent Hill or Alone in the Dark, which has been rather dormant of late. Horror has always had one of the most unique libraries of titles in all of gaming so who wouldn’t want to see more from it? Who knows, maybe a sub-genre about terrifying backwoods families will also come from this.
