Two of my friends who love the franchise have not played the game or haven’t finished it because it was too scary, another two of them had to play it with me at home lol.
I think this is a sign of how well crafted that game is and is sad they are taking a route that is aimed to make the game more appealing for more people.
One thing I loved about RE:7 since I saw the first trailers was the context of it. The Massacre from Texas style they gave to the game was excellent, it puts you in the shoes of someone who is trapped in a rotting house in the extremely hot swamps of southern U.S with a psychopathic family who is observing you constantly and trying to kill you and to me that was scary and exciting as fuck. I have finished that game maybe three times already and one moment that I cannot forget was when in my first playthrough I had to go the “basement” of the house, where the boiler room is and how fucking scared I was to go down there because I was low on resources, it was dark af and I didn’t know what but I knew there was something horrible waiting for me down there.
To me the whole game was a masterpiece because of that, if you let yourself influence by the story and the context of this game it becomes as scary as exciting to progress and I thought those two things defined RE:7.
When Capcom started releasing more and more footage about Village, I was not getting those horror vives at all and don’t get me wrong the game looks stunning and very detailed and I can´t wait to play it but the whole vampire and werewolf atmosphere is something I have associated with more fantastic/teenage horror then a bunch of cannibal psychopaths living in a remote are of Louisiana in a rooting house where they kidnap people for creepy experiments and having fun.
After I played the demo yesterday, I realized I am still very excited for playing this game but and also I confirmed that this game is definitely not going to be as scary as RE:7 and when I just read that statement from the game director I learned that this is not accidental.

For Village, the team went for an experience that is still scary but in a way that more players can play" specifically for the game Gaming News. Other useful information about this game:
