The new Resident Evil 7 will be launched somewhere next week and the developer promises that the game will be different from the previous 2 – meaning that they are going to return to their gaming root again. For the die-hard and loyal fans, this is definitely a good news – but it may not be for some of the other fans.
Resident Evil 7: Gaming in Motion
If you are a loyal fan of the game, you have to admit that playing the original game with the latest ones (especially from the 4, 5, or 6) is completely different. I thought I was the only one having such a feeling but it turns out there are more people out there thinking the same. All of them are emphasizing on the horror genre but instead of focusing on the survival mode, the latest ones have been focusing on action and more horror – well, at least that’s what I thought. I won’t say that it is bad but I would say that it is somehow not so ‘Resident Evil’-ish in the kind of a way.
And it is a good thing that Capcom really understands this and they have decided to make the Resident Evil 7 with the original taste and atmosphere. Jun Takeuchi, Capcom’s executive producer, said that the team has felt that they need to take things slowly and evaluate the progress of the game after the release of Resident Evil 6. They have been asking opinions and feedbacks from fans. And it is a good thing that those fans are stating the same nagging problem that these developers have; which is to make the game return to the original gaming roots. They know that it doesn’t mean that they had made a bad job before but they wanted to preserve the things that make Resident Evil unique and different from the others.
Resident Evil 7 and the Future Planning
It is a good thing that Capcom addresses their fans’ feedbacks and opinions seriously and they are going back to their roots again. For the new Resident Evil 7, the gaming mode will be coming with first person perspective, bringing the thriller and puzzle solving platform as the main focus.
If you are looking for some actions, maybe the 7th series won’t be the perfect option for you. But if you are looking for survival mode, puzzle solving improvement, and a simple scare atmosphere, the Resident Evil 7 will be right up your alley.
