Resident Evil 7

Zombies - they’ve literally been done to death.

Hordes of undead shamblers have been chasing our delicious brains so regularly across games, movies and TV shows recently that they barely register so much as a shiver any more.

A murderous family of rednecks with a truly twisted idea of hospitality, though? One that makes the house from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre look like a five star hotel? That’s enough to give you nightmares for weeks - especially when you’re meeting them in first person.

The Resident Evil series has seen its fare share of shake-ups and spin-offs, but this latest entry feels like a true return to form.

Pick up your controller, pull on your PlayStation VR headset, and make sure you’ve got a spare change of underpants - survival horror is back, and properly scary.
