Ever given any thought to what kind of games are you willing to play using a pair of VR glasses? If not, you should definitely give Resident Evil 7 Biohazard a try. Recently, Capcom’s latest Resident Evil title has been called the best VR experience ever, toppling over titles such as GTA V, Elite Dangerous, Surgeon Simulator VR, and, of course, Alien Isolation.
Ever since the first video game in the Resident Evil series was launched on the 22nd of March 1996, the players knew from the start what to expect from it – death-defying shooting scenes, mind-boggling puzzles, nightmarish creatures, unsettling environments, and jump scares.
So, forget about zombies, the Umbrella Corporation, and the dead Raccoon City, because there are far more terrible creatures lurking in the darkness. Naturally, Capcom understood the gamer’s desire for true horror and did what it knows best in order to reinvent the series.
The result is a terrifying and even nauseating experience called Resident Evil 7 Biohazard. What’s even more interesting about this game is that you can now enjoy the latest Resident Evil 7 Biohazard experience in true VR.
Unfortunately, only PS4 owners can play the game in true VR. However, the game is so mind-twisting and gut-wrenching that you don’t need a VR headset in order to cry like a baby each time a monster appears in a dark hallway.
According to Capcom, the game’s first demo not only scared the living daylights out of players but also induced violent vomiting due to extreme motion sickness. The company corrected this issue, but it’s still kind of eerie to play the game in VR, taking into account that you see everything from a first-person perspective.
Regarding monsters and jump scares, Resident Evil 7 has you covered. You don’t need to worry about repetitive actions like navigating a corridor and after the lights start flickering a monster will jump on you. Capcom understood these things and had designed a game so terrifying, that even common objects such as chairs and TVs make you feel uneasy.
In fact, the only time you feel safe is when you hit the quit button and leave the game. So, if you have trouble sleeping at night or a vivid imagination, our advice to try playing the game during daylight, preferably with a minimized window, and to avoid VR as much as possible.
