2014 has been a roller coaster ride for fans of spooky scary video games, and I’m not saying that because it gifted us with memorable horror debuts like The Forest, Alien: Isolation, The Evil Within and Five Nights at Freddy’s. While I was looking through the biggest stories of the year — and there were many — the stuff that really stood out were the myriad teases of what’s to come in 2015.
So with that in mind, let’s take a look at some of 2014’s most unexpected and unforgettable horror game headlines, starting with one some fans of the genre have been waiting a long time to hear…
Resident Evil May Actually Return to its Roots
The story that affected me the most was when I realized Capcom might have some fight left in them yet when they threw Resident Evil a lifeline just as it was beginning its slow and painful descent into video game obscurity.
This lifeline is coming in the form of an episodic sequel to Revelations — arguably the best Resident Evil game in some time — and a remaster of the beloved Resident Evil REmake. The best part of all this is we won’t have to wait long to see what happens when a talented publisher like Capcom rediscovers their determination, because both games will be out my March.
