Resident Evil 7 proves that PSVR can be more than just a novelty

Alone in the dark. 

It was my birthday last week and, thanks to some tactical holiday allocation in 2016, I managed to roll five days over into 2017 which I used to give myself a whole week off work to celebrate.

While most people would have spent that time on a nice relaxing holiday somewhere warm, I strapped on a PSVR headset and threw myself into the gore-soaked murder maze that is Resident Evil 7.

I've had this sinking feeling about PSVR for a while now. Was it really worth all that money I spent? Will we ever get to play something that's not a 20-minute 'experience' or a cockpit game? I wasn't so sure, but during the 12 hours it took me to finish the game, my hopes that PSVR could be more than just a novelty were well and truly lifted.

In the video below, I go into much more detail about exactly why I think you should brave Resident Evil 7 in PSVR. It's not for the faint-hearted, but if you can handle it, I sincerely believe it'll be one of the most memorable gaming experiences of your life.
