I feel like I'm in a completely different world haha. This is maybe the worst RE game I've played (given I haven't played all the side entries and stuff). Basically all the "puzzles" boil down to something being locked and the key to unlock it is in the next room... maybe 2 rooms away. The game is super easy; letting you hoard ammo until you get to a boss where you gotta use every single bullet in your inventory because all the bosses are bullet sponges (but very easy still). And the story was, to be somewhat kind to it, very dumb.
Resident Evil 7 was soooo much better in every way! Even the more action-oriented DLC in RE7 where you play as Chris was way better. So RE can do action if it wants to, imo. RE8 wasn't my thang tho.
