GOTY 17: Studio

These studios did wonders with their releases this year.

  • Text: GR Staff

Let's all put our cards on the table here, we all thought Resident Evil was done, right? The steady shift from survival to action marked a gradual evolution for the horror series, but it was one that a lot of people weren't entirely happy with. But the studio had the good sense to change things up and take the franchise in a different direction, and in doing so rescued it from irrelevance. By making the player feel truly vulnerable again and shifting the emphasis back to survival horror once more, Resident Evil 7 was a hit with fans, and revitalised the series while also bringing it back to its roots.
