Resident Evil 7 – One of the Games of the Year

2017 has been a goo year for games. With the release of the new legend of Zelda, Destiny 2, Super Mario Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed: Origins, there were lots of new titles vying for the top spot. However, one of the clear winners has to be Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows.

The game is set in the survival horror genre, with the player quite literally playing for their life. Ethan Winters is the main character, and the game focuses on his story as he searches for his wife. Ethan finds the Baker family and uses various methods to fight them, including a humanoid bacteria.

There is a different slant on this latest installation from the Resident Evil franchise. It is a first person game, focusing on the story of Ethan. This gives it a more psychological slant, with puzzles to solve and mysterious circumstances to overcome. It is less about the action than in previous games.
