The Resident Evil franchise has always been regarded as one of the longest running and successful horror game franchises to have been ever made. For years, Resident Evil followed the true Survival Horror genre and then took a different path with Resident Evil 4, 5 and the very poorly rated Resident Evil 6. After the massive flop that Resident Evil 6 was, we thought Capcom was pretty much done. But just then, back in 2017, we got Resident Evil 7 Biohazard.
Resident Evil 7 instantly became a massive hit. From YouTubers to casual gamers and Survival Horror game enthusiasts, pretty much everyone was playing it. Capcom has now unveiled that the game has crossed a staggering 10 million copies across the globe as of 2021. These figures only show what a masterpiece the game really was. Then, in 2020, we got to see Resident Evil 8 Village.
Although Resident Evil 8 does not really bother to scare you like Resident Evil 7 Biohazard did, it is a very adventurous new title by Capcom. The game’s graphics and overall story really made people dig it. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard is the game that led to all these incredible titles by Capcom. The atmosphere, gameplay mechanics, graphics and story made the game a non-forgettable title.
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
The primary story of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard revolves around the game’s protagonist Ethan Winters trying to find his wife, Mia. In his will to find his wife, Ethan unveils some very shocking twist of events. Moreover, his storyline continues into Resident Evil 8 as well. We get to see Winters in action yet again in RE8. Before RE7, the franchise followed a third-person perspective.
However, RE7 was launched as a first-person survival horror game and yes, it was definitely scary. The game still tops multiple charts as being one of the scariest horror games to ever come into existence. Previously, the game sold a whopping 7 million copies worldwide. These number went up to 10 million copies worldwide when the recent title Resident Evil 8 was launched. Many people who did not play the game wanted to know what exactly went down in the Baker’s house themselves.
