3. Resident Evil 7

The latest mainline entry in the ironic and groundbreaking survival horror franchise, Resident Evil 7 both reinvents the series by changing the perspective from 3rd person to 1st person and brings the series back to its roots of methodical exploration and darkly atmospheric survival horror. Set in a rundown plantation in Louisiana, players take control of Ethan Baker as he searches for his missing wife while trying to avoid being killed by The psychotic Baker family who inhabits the plantation.

What makes Resident Evil 7 great:

  • A return to the classic exploration and atmospheric survival that the series got away from in the three previous entries.
  • A new 1st person perspective which ratchets up the feeling of powerlessness and dread thanks to the new photorealistic art style brought to you by Capcom’s RE Engine.
  • A dark and emotional story where players are stalked by a family of unhinged yet compelling psychopaths.
