The verdugo part from RE4.



Around the Network

All of RE7 while in VR is far higher than every other game in the series.



Sony want to make money by selling art, Nintendo want to make money by selling fun, Microsoft want to make money.

Jack Backers first chase sequence in RE7 VR, while not exactly scary in the general sense it got me so riddled with Anxiety and the effects of adrenaline , even on my second or third go at it, that I had to take off my headset multiple times and catch my breath until I could face it again. The first time with a jump scare, My adrenaline was so high that I had some sort of a panic attack and ended up shaking for like 20 minutes afterward. It's not a immigration of fear when you play VR games, It is real fear, none of thqt shifty feeling like from a film ot flat game byt shear, pure fear. I think thw chainsaw fight would have been the scariest but in instead of getting flight, I got fight.. still ended up shaking a little after the fight.
There are no other films or games that have even come close to scaring me like this sense I was like 7 qnd watch the Exorsist qnd even that was just the look over your shoulder kind of fear. Re7 VR works your mind into thinking the situation is real and pumps your body full of adrinaline and that mixed with the horror settings and themes just blows all else out of the water. The difference is so massive that I just see other horror titles as normal, action adventures or walking sims, Especially flat game which I'll never play again.

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

If memory serves me, near the end of RE4 there is a furnace or something that pops open concealing one of the zombies (or whatever they were called in that game), which has stuck with me through the years.

But overall, Nemesis was what got me first interested in the series. I was young when playing RE3, so I was more scared than from other games which at the time may have scared me more.

Oh man, for some reason I had forgotten about RE7. Yeah, RE7 totally wins in terms of being the scariest, but much of that has to do with how much technology has come, and how Capcom decided to go back to their roots with the series. What I found scariest with VR was how many of the jump scares are right in your face, and you can't always look away. I actually haven't finished the game yet, and only got as far as the second house with the "Saw-esque" brother character.

Definitely the wolves in RE4 at the maze outdoor area. They just kept appearing out of nowhere, and the sounds around you kept you completely paranoid when they were going to jump out.

Are they even worse than the zombie Dobermans in Resident Evil 1?

The zombie arms through the barricades in Resident Evil 2. Gets me every single time, without fail.

Also, +1 for the garden maze in RE4. Always have to turn the sound up for that bit to make sure I know what's going on.

Shout out to the composer(s) of RE1. The music is fantastic at creating a sense of terror. The mansion themes, the basement theme, guardhouse theme, dormitory theme, lab theme... all superb and effective.

Yeah, the RE1 music is still unsettling to this day. Must be why it was kept the same in the remakes.

RE1 Directors Cut on PS1.
The dead Agent guy on the chair outside on the balcony. In the OG game you collect an item off him. In the Directors Cut he gets up out of the chair and you have to fight him. Caught me off gaurd and scared the Bjesus out of me.

Now that's just cruel!!

The voice acting in RE1...

"That was close! You were almost a Jill Sandwich.".

Awe lad. You're doing yourself a diservice. Finish it, there are still great scares left. And agreed yet they wouldn't be as successful without the building tension leading up to them ans that is where RE7 shines beyond most other games.

Also, Re7 and VR titles in general is one of the few games and platforms I've seen where difficulty actually effects how scary it is and it's replay ability on the scares because that tension rises still but you know about the jump scares.

A college friend of mine has compared Resident Evil 7 with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Looking back it makes sense.
