I’ve already experienced how terrifying Resident Evil 7 is in VR, but I’m only just learning how damn fun it could be also. Whereas the game’s initial “Kitchen” demo was an exercise in silent spookiness, the new “Lantern” sequence I played at New York Comic-Con was a 15-minute thrill ride in which I tried not to die and failed.

If you’ve seen the game’s Lantern trailer before, you’ll know exactly what I flung myself head-first into on a PlayStation VR headset. A creepy, lantern-touting woman follows you throughout a run-down house, forcing you to sneak, hide and run in order to avoid being captured. The whole thing was as unsettling as it sounds.
