Resident Evil 7 experiments by taking a step away from the original series and going back to basic

Not to take anything away from Resident Evil 4, which is one of the best and most influential action games of all time, but there’s a case to be made that it set the series on a path to irrelevance. Subsequent entries learned all the wrong lessons, unsuccessfully attempting to go toe-to-toe with action genre heavyweights while forgetting what made the series what it was back in the day: a relentless, foreboding sense of horror.

If a playable teaser released on the PlayStation Network shortly after Sony’s E3 press conference last night is anything to go by, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard represents a major course correction.  We don’t have to wait too long to find out how well the experiment works out, either — Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is coming out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24th, 2017.
