You might question why playing the new Resident Evil 7 demo in third-person is even at all necessary, but, much like any ridiculous mod, it's all for science. Sort of.
Resident Evil 7 is the first time a main series Resident Evil game has been presented in first person. Usually going for a fixed-camera view or 'over the shoulder' third-person perspective, Tom Humble forced his way into the game's camera to play the whole thing as the headless protagonist.
That's right. Even with all the weapon swings, force feedings and neck grabs we've seen both in the demo and through promotional screenshots or trailers, our captured friend doesn't actually have anything above the shoulders. It isn't an uncommon practice to limit the work going into something you're never supposed to see, but reflections will be a whole other story.

Even though it'll certainly diminish the scare tactics employed by the Baker family strolling around the house, there's something fascinating about seeing the house we've already walked through so many times in a demo alone in a different light - so to speak.
So maybe the scariest part of Resident Evil 7 is yet to come! All this time we've been playing as some kind of headless demon. Like a dullahan who came to the house looking for his lost head.
