Top 4 genre-defining video games of this generation
#2 Resident Evil 7 (Survival Horror)
When I first played the free demo of Resident Evil 7 called "The Beginning hour", I felt like it was a lazy copy of Hideo Kojima's cancelled Silent Hill game. After all, the demo resembled a lot what made the enigmatic P.T. famous.
It felt like Capcom was fully prepared to fill the void which Konami's cancelled Silent Hill game so gracefully carved in our hearts. Turns out, that was true. Resident Evil 7 was everything that a true survival horror game should be.
Boasting picturesque visuals thanks to the powerful RE engine, the game put us into the shoes of a newcomer Ethan, who just like us is confused about everything that goes around in the game's mysterious mansion set in the American Countryside.
Resident Evil 7 is everything that Capcom could have done with this dying series and is a fitting come back for the root of the survival horror genre.
From its three crazy antagonists - the Baker family, to the mysterious zombie-like creatures called "moulded", and the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Ethan's wife-Mia, Resident Evil 7 will keep one on their toes all the time. It's terrifying, it's beautiful, it's the most satisfying Resident Evil game since Resident Evil 4.
