YouTube and scary video games basically go hand in hand, right? PewDiePie kinda kickstarted the fascination of watching fully-functioning adults screaming on the Internet to terrifying video games, but it looks like no one was ready for Resident Evil 7. The brand new Capcom game, released only yesterday, is making big waves on YouTube already with creators positively pooping their pants on camera whilst playing it.
The game, which at the time of writing has been out in the UK for less than 24 hours, already has classic screamer PewDiePie getting his freak on with the intense 40 minute long playthrough below. Just his cold opener alone is enough to warn potential buyers about what a fright-fest Resident Evil 7 is.
Moving away from previous Resident Evil titles that focused more on fast-paced gore and action, Resident Evil 7 (or Resident Evil Biohazard?!) is a welcome return to the thrill of undeniable horror and isolation in a dilapidated Louisiana mansion. So if you want a game all about searching for your wife in the worst possible to lose a loved one, then look no further than Biohazard, because from what we can see… it’s absolutely terrifying.
But don’t just take PewDiePie’s reactions for it, as well as video game critics calling it the “perfect horror game for 2017”, Suzy Lo is seen physically cowering behind her controller as she walks around corners!
Let us know in the comments below if you’ll be checking out Resident Evil 7, and whether you think it’s as scary as it looks!
