I like Resident Evil and I like VR so those things should be great together right?
Well not so fast.
I think VR is great for puzzle games, sports games, simple actions games.
But hard games with a lot of jump scares, well I nope right out in a minute which means I take the headset off and say nope, I'm done.
It's surprising, because I've always loved games like Resident Evil and Dead Space, but I can safely say I think that VR horror games are not for me.
I don't even like it when fish swim too close to my face in VR demos, but in the interest of science, I loaded up Resident Evil seven and jumped right into the new VR mode, and I, of course, made a couple of friends try it, too.
What it is?
No!, Go away!
Why am I here?
What, why am I here?
There's a hazy look to the VR version.
It's otherworldly, almost like you're watching a late-night B-movie on an old tube TV.
Which actually plays into the visual style, a cross between found footage movies and Americana horror auteurs like Tobe Hooper and Rob Zombie.
When I finally got too freaked out and switched to the regular 2D version, I was struck by how much sharper the game looks at full resolution.
It's much more game-like, less interesting, but also more playable for lightweights like me.
