The trailers are horribly cut. Don't really understand what I'm watching.

Thanks for these videos. But I'm not gonna watch them, wanna dive in with no clue as what to expect when the PC demo comes out. Then it's playing in the dark with headphones and sound at maximum volume.

Good idea! I will not watch the video too. PC demo is great news for me.

Been sold on it since demo 1. Got hyped as hell after playing the kitchen demo. Day 1.

This just isn't for me. This isn't RE for me. I thought the action route RE was weird, but this is just as bad.

I played the demo and this should have been called something other than RE. No thanks!

Finally i can look forward to a Res Evil game again, 5 & 6 were just wrong.

Being stranded in a strange, creepy mansion, solving puzzles, and being stalked by super natural creatures isn't Resident Evil? Would it require a zombie for it to meet your requirements on what a RE game is, because from what I experienced, feeling shit scared of what was behind every door and every corner is EXACTLY what I remember the original RE to be. This has it, therefore, it can be classified as a RE game once more.

VR implementation, which as far as I'm concerned, is what this game is all about.

Kids these days... Expect everything for NOTHING. LOL. Thanks for the trailers Gamersyde! You guys are the best.

Do these videos resemble the image quality of the final game?
They look rather prerendered...

I don't know how someone can play this in VR - dead secret on the gear VR was already too nerve wrecking for me :)

That's the whole point, to scare the shit out of you. For Horror fans, there's nothing better. Just make sure you don't have a heart condition - actually talking seriously, since just like in sports, too much emotion can lead to a heart attack.

Isn't VR only going to be available on the PS4 for a year, then other platforms after?

Perhaps reading comprehension just isn't your thing?

What part of "me" throughout that explanation didn't you understand. To "me," that isn't the survival horror game resident evil started off to be. To "me" it's a wannabe silent hills/P.T.

You don't have to understand anything when I direct it all towards myself. Buy it. I never told anyone else not to. I never tried to convince anyone else the way you are trying to for whatever reason. I won't buy this ever.

you still haven't explained why "to you" it's nothing like resident evil though? is it really as shallow of a reason as "no zombies" or, god forbid, a perspective change? lol

If you can't see the differences between this and REmake, then I don't know what to say.

It's edgy enough for YouTube millennials I guess

It's funny how I can respect people wanting to buy this, but you can't respect my point of view. That's why I never mentioned anyone else, but myself.

Yet here you are trying to, ahem what exactly?

Anyhow, here's a topic speaking specifically on what I'm saying ( hint: I'm in the topic)

who said i didn't respect your point of view? up until now you haven't actually given me a point of view? i asked why you didn't think it wasn't "resident evil enough" for you, you dodged the question, got defensive, and actually did the opposite of respecting people who want to buy this the moment you verbal diarrhea'd this gem of a comment "It's edgy enough for YouTube millennials I guess"

but please, continue :)

To be honest, if it's anything like P.T. - which it is, then it truly isn't a Resident Evil game at its core, regardless of how many Resident Evil's features, lore and characters they put in it. I say this, because Resident Evil 7 was built on another game's completely different concept/foundation, not because of a change in perspective - there's already 6 First-Person Shooter Resident Evil games, 3 Light Gun ones and 2 On-Rails ones.

It's hard to specify exactly why Resident Evil 7 is much more close to a spin-off than to any of the numbered main games in the series - Resident Evil 1-6. But I believe it has to do with the fact that its main goal from the concept phase throughout development has always been to be an Horror game instead of a Survival Horror game, or at the very least an Horror game first and a Survival Horror game second.

The distinction is subtle, true, but it can make a big difference in a game. Horror games aren't Survival Horror games, and vice-versa. It's very similar to how an On-Rails FPS Shooter is very different than a FPS Shooter, even though your main goal is to aim and shoot enemies before they kill you.

That's why Resident Evil 7 feels off to me when I think of the franchise, it has lost something that screams "Resident Evil" in exchange for something that screams "P.T.". And we should only need to ask ourselves 2 questions:

If Resident Evil 7 is more similar to Resident Evil 1-6 or to P.T.?
And if any of us while playing or watching P.T. ever felt it reminded of Resident Evil in any way whatsoever?

As long as the answer to those 2 questions are: P.T. (instead of Resident Evil 1-6) and No, respectively, Resident Evil 7 can be titled whatever it wants, but it will never feel like a proper Resident Evil game at its core.

Ironically, Capcom traded Survival Horror for Action, and now it has traded Action for Horror - in a sense, Capcom traded Survival Horror for Horror. It might be a great game and very successful, but it's definitely not the same experience where it matters most, regardless of the perspective - just like the aforementioned First-Person View Resident Evil games, as well as Third-Person View ones like Resident Evil Outbreak, Resident Evil Outbreak File 2, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, and Umbrella Corps.

PS. Feel free to complain about the post's length, and not the message therein lies. While that is pathetic, I understand that this much text can be a big inconvenience for an illiterate person. And as you yourself said, you're done playing games in which you need to read texts as well. Therefore, it falls on me the responsibility and empathy to understand and accept your sensibility regarding this matter.

If you were to go back to Shinji Mikami's original vision of the first Resident Evil game, his goal was to create a haunted house environment filled with traps and puzzles. This is actually what he said. Turned out the game wasn't actually that far off of that vision, only with inspiration taken directly from Fulci's Zombie films, complete with the fixed camera positions and all to create the tension. The goal of those titles was simply horror, with a shoddy B-movie style script and exceedingly dodgy acting.Everything else was by accident of design, forced by hardware limitations: tank controls, door loading screens, inventory box...etc.

Now, with that in context, when you actually compare that vision to that of RE7, is it that far off? No. In fact, this would probably be closer to what Mikami first envisaged. The entire draw to the original RE game to begin with was a gory horror featuring Romero style zombies. Something that hadn't really been seen in a video game before, and this was well before the popular zombie explosion with is prevalent in everything these days.

Now, if you ask me, had they went with the usual 3rd person perspective, fixed camera route, would it resemble RE more closely? Obviously, but only for nostalgia's sake. Tank controls, fixed camera, pre rendered backdrops, even 3d backdrops *yawn" been there, done it. No doubt people would moan about the lack of originality if they went down that route, but instead, here we are, in 2016 and VR is the new kid on the block to drive the horror genre forward. You can see why Capcom ultimately - and bravely - defied the fanboy outcry and went (correctly in my opinion) with a 1st person survival horror game designed for VR, to bring fear to the next level by actually placing you inside it, and it doesn't get much more immersive than that. This game will scare you more than the original's design ever could, so it's got the horror element nailed, and the lack of guns and other stuff means that a single enemy on screen poses a very serious threat once again (just like the original's zombies when you first encountered them) so it's still got that element to it, along with the inventory system, lack of supplies, storage boxes, save rooms, and tape recorders instead of ink and type writers to save the game.

Now, if that isn't survival horror, or indeed RE, I don't know what the fuck else to call it. Anyone claiming it isn't is just falling under the casual internet trend of being a moan.

Yet you've not presented one intelligent argument to back up your non-salient views, so no. Not that.
