Horror movies. I'm fine.
Horror games. Fucking terrified.

After watching huber playthrough it I feel the same way about it now that I did when it was first shown, it's interesting on it's own had they just not named it resident evil or tried to tie it into the lore whatsoever (Or worse, create a new storyline with existing franchise characters. Or retcon anything).
But as an RE title? As a fan of RE4, nope. Not interested in buying it. It's also far less of a game than the price provides value on IMO. I'll change that opinion if the free DLC actually makes it a complete package but it's still a bit.....sneaky in my eyes, the game needs to sell or they'll stop supporting it with free updates and they'll switch to paid DLC.
Normally I wouldn't be that suspicious but capcom has made a pretty vivid history of late releasing incomplete games for full price and then wonder why people aren't biting, or just outright bad games that they loan their licenses out for like Umbrella corps.
All other taste issues and business practices withheld, I'm just not a fan of the gameplay. It's too slow for my taste, the majority of the combat is in really tight spaces while being slow.
Granted VR would make that easier, but you shouldn't NEED that in order for the gameplay to function properly otherwise it should've been a VR exclusive.
All in all however I'm not the target audience, I'm not a huge RE fan. Whether it changed into this or stayed like RE5 and 6 I still wouldn't have been very excited about it. So my opinion matters very little lol.

I'm not a Resident Evil fan by any stretch of the imagination. First and foremost I don't do scary. I don't watch scary movies and I sure as hell don't play scary games. The scariest I've gone is Bioshock, or handing my friend the controller while he played PT and Outlast while I half paid attention. I tried playing the HD remake for RE1 since it was free with PS+ but I hated it. Just not my style of game. I have played RE5 a while ago and remember enjoying it enough as a one off. All that being said the franchise does interest me and I've ready up on all of the plots and lore, watched the coop stream of the terrible RE6, and plan on slowly watching the RE7 stream. I've only seem the prologue of the game through the EZA stream but holy crap was that intense and unsettling. I definitely want to finish watching it.

Best Resident Evil since the first 3. I think this game is most jarring to ppl who like the action RS games which I can't stand. I haven't beat it yet, but it feels just like classic resident evil to me just in first person and smaller scale.
I want them to do this again but in a setting such as resident evil 2. I also would like to bring back umbrella and a few main characters. I want to explore high tech abandoned labs and lots of puzzles.
The game is scary enough that I have to push myself to move forward. But I don't think it's over the top or anything.
I like what kotaku said about the doors lol. I spend a lot of time debating if I should even go into the door lol.

Playing RE7 in PSVR was pretty much the most intense thing I've ever experienced in video games. I didn't play the whole thing in vr, because it was making my eyes tired, but man, it's so cool!
The graphics take a big hit through vr, but after a few minutes of immersion, I got into it and sort of forgot about that, so it's not a huge issue.
Let's just say, I never thought I'd be this excited about being able to stare down inside a toilet bowl...lol.
I see a lot of people complaining about it being so "western" which is weird. Aside from the setting and the family, it's got all the trappings of a classic Resident Evil title. Puzzles, inventory management, ammo conservation, close quarters encounters, it's all there. And certain parts definitely scream "Japanese horror" to me, but since I can't figure out spoiler tags on this forum, I guess I'll skip that or wait until someone explains them to me, lol.
Needless to say, I think this game is more true to the nature of Resident Evil than the series has been since the fixed camera angles games. I love 4, but it's by no means scary or tense, aside from maybe the chainsaw guys.

What do you people think about the DLC? At first I was a little bit disappointed because I was hoping for more story content. But at the end I actually spent quite some time with the minigames like 21 or Ethan Must Die!
I even recorded my personal best. Took me like 6 hours.

I got a link to this in my inbox. An apology for the delay for the free DLC "Not a Hero". Thought it might be of interest, especially since GT/EZA examine these delays.
Anywa, here they're apologising for it not meeting the high expectations of the main game. I think this is seriously classy, working extra on content that is going to be free just to meet quality standards. That's pretty cool.
Anyway, here's the link:

I've been waiting for this to buy the game, I'd only borrowed it so far. Awesome news, can't wait to pick up the Gold edition and play through all that sweet DLC.

and then play the DLC.

With the last price cut to PSVR, I finally decided to go for it and eventually get RE7. The gold edition went on sale relatively recently on psn so I picked that up and played through the entire campaign and main DLC in VR. I streamed it over 4-5 nights I believe.
First thing I'll say is, it's worth messing around with the VR settings. I haven't had any major issues before and the default is set to walking slowly, fov filter on, crouch/jump transitions off, 30 degree turns with the right analog. Now I was fine while playing but about 2 hours afterwards, while I was playing Overwatch, it just hit me a little bit and I didn't feel that great. So the next day I switched it after reading online, turned off the fov option, increased movement speed, changed turning to smooth 10 which basically meant it played like a standard fps game and turned on transitions for crouching and I was set from there. Found it to play a lot better and didn't have any issues. Oh, I also stood up while playing after the first night, just felt more immersed.
So the game. This was a great experience. In VR, the textures and resolution are clearly downgraded but you feel so immersed in it and the main things still look fantastic, like the character models and anything really close to you.And things do get up and close to you in this game. My god, the opening hour or so. Not only is it arguably the scariest part as it's so damn dark but when the action kicks in, it's frantic!
I do love that it's gone way more into the survival horror again. It had a few fun jump scares and maybe 3-4 sections that I genuinely found terrifying due to the sound, chilling music used and the surrounding area. They really did a fantastic job with that.
I think initially I wasn't huge on the story and I was questioning a few things on how this thing was here but the more space I've given it, the more I've actually liked how small it is. I don't think it's a spoiler but if you want to know nothing don't read the end of this paragraph. I do think they did a poor job with the choice you're given about halfway through the game. There's just not enough development to really care about the characters bar the context given.
I think it actually had some of my favourite boss fights from the Resident Evil games and I loved seeing the callbacks and references throughout. The DLC is probably a little weird but I'd a good time with it. Not a Hero at least offers a bit more info while also adding... maybe stuff that's a bit difficult to suspend your disbelief while End of Zoe is a hilarious bit of dlc which reminded me of a less wacky Executioner dlc from The Evil Within.
I'm glad to see RE series back on track and hope they do continue with survival horror and I seriously can't believe how good a job they did with making this a VR game, it really is a proper AAA VR game. Now I'm ready for some REmake 2 news
