Starting on the PlayStation 1, Resident Evil has been a long running Japanese Horror franchise that has spawned several spin off games and even a successful movie franchise. It is not the only Japanese horror game on the market but there are very few games like Resident Evil that can live up to the reputation this game has.
Can anyone suggest some games that are similar to the Resident Evil games? The games don’t need to be zombie games or anything so long as the gameplay and idea of the game is the same kind of thing as RE.
Silent Hill: Downpour
The Silent Hill series has been quiet for a few years now. Kojima was meant to reboot it, but that didnt happen. I always found these games to be very similar. Both Japanese horror games with a focus on weird monsters, cramped areas and a general scaryness. They are both very similar games in my opinion.
The Evil Within
Dead Space 3
Alan Wake isnt a zombie game, but the story telling and the combat system are a lot like Resident Evil. You need to take your time and cant just be running around the place blowing stuff up. You stop, take shots at the shadows and other monsters before moving on. The pace is slow, the setting is spooky and the story is really good.
The Last of Us
The enemies in this game are sort of zombies. They aren't the traditional ones, but it might as well be considered a zombie game. The world is a mess and you are left to survive in a place where the zombies/mutants are all over the place. The combat is fun and ammo is rare, so you really need to take care when you are playing. Keeps the pace slow and intense.
