If you've recently finished Resident Evil: Village, you may well be looking for similar games to play next if you've completed Resident Evil Village. Capcom's Resident Evil is widely regarded as the most important horror video game series of all time, dating back to the original PlayStation in 1996. Since its inception, it has ventured into various sub-genres, with some games geared towards survival horror, while others tend to focus more on shooting. We recently had Resident Evil Village, an entry that, in many ways, extracts some of the best aspects of the franchise as a whole.



The series has been hugely influential in the video game industry, leading to many other original horror franchises that fans love. Despite having a long list of games to choose from, you might want more horror stuff to play after trying out all the Resident Evil games. That's why we've compiled a list of 10 games like Resident Evil that you should play after finishing Resident Evil Village. Without further ado, let's get started!

Dead Space

Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360 and PC

Dead Space is a third-person survival horror game set in…well…space. The monsters in the game are scary, but when you have to deal with them in the darkness of space, the horror is amplified. Dead Space was released during a time when fans were hungry for true survival horror in the modern sense.


In 2008, when it was first released, there was nothing like it. Sure, the original Resident Evil games were scary, but they haven't aged as well due to the tight controls. Dead Space feels like a modern game, while still evoking the claustrophobic nature of Resident Evil's level design. It's the best of both worlds, and fans are desperately hoping for a return of Dead Space soon.

Days Gone

Platforms: PS4 and PC

Days Gone sometimes gets a lot of hate, but most of it is unwarranted. Sure, it might not be of the same quality as the rest of Sony's original lineup, but Days Gone is still pretty good. It takes many of the shooting elements from more recent Resident Evil games, but adds a heartfelt story and massive open world.

Regardless of how this game compares to other PlayStation exclusives, there's no denying that its action gameplay is satisfying. It has an in-depth progression system, tons of quests, and a nuanced crafting system that makes it feel like a survival game. If you like the more action-oriented Resident Evil games, you should definitely give Days Gone a shot. Even better is that the game has just been released for PC!

The Last of Us

Platforms: PS3 and PS4

When discussing iconic horror games, it's hard not to mention The Last of Us. This game (and its sequel, The Last of Us Part II) leans more towards cinematic storytelling and includes survival mechanics that make every encounter terrifying.


One moment, you'll be scavenging for ammo and supplies, and the next, you'll be hit by a massive story beat that changes the course of the game's narrative. Everything from the acting, performances, writing and combat in The Last of Us are impeccable, and a testament to Naughty Dog's skills as a developer.

Dying Light

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One and PC

A popular but underused game mechanic allows players to run freely using parkour movement. This mechanic is present in Dying Light, an open world zombie survival game from Techland. There are no vehicles in this game. Instead, players traverse the map by running, climbing, and jumping onto rooftops.

Its day/night cycle adds to the immersion, giving you a sense of urgency when trying to complete missions, as zombies are deadlier when the sun goes down. It's played from a first-person perspective, much like recent Resident Evil episodes. Dying Light also has a sequel on the way, although it's unknown when it will release.

Alien: isolation

Plataformas: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch e PC

As we've already mentioned, there's something to be said for terrifying terror in space. That's where Alien Isolation comes in, surprisingly taking an existing IP and becoming arguably the best in the entire franchise. Alien Isolation puts you in the shoes of Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen Ripley, which gives it canonical significance.


In addition to the story, the gameplay is tense as the deadly Xenomorph is always on the prowl. This raises the stakes and makes you have to approach each situation carefully. The game is less action-oriented than others on this list, with an emphasis on running and hiding more than all-out battle.

Silent Hill

Platforms: PS1 and PS3

Resident Evil and Silent Hill often go hand in hand when it comes to horror. Both debuted for the original PlayStation around the same time, and both pushed the limits of the hardware at the time.

Silent Hill has virtually an identical combat system to previous Resident Evil entries, allowing players to stop and shoot their opponents with a variety of firearms. Of course, the creatures in Silent Hill are much more abstract, drawing inspiration from what you'd see in your nightmares. This is yet another series that fans have been clamoring to see return, and rumor has it we may be able to fulfill that wish soon.

BioShock

Plataformas: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch e PC

At first, saying that BioShock is one of the games like Resident Evil might seem like an exaggeration, but the two have more in common than you might think. Although BioShock takes place in a fantastical world, horror is at the heart of the experience. Enemies known as Splicers are grotesque, and while they may not look like zombies, you'll want to avoid them just the same.

BioShock has some of the most satisfying gameplay, encouraging you to explore and collect resources as you make your way through the world of Rapture. Much like recent Resident Evil titles, BioShock shines in its ambient narrative, making its world feel like a real place.

Left 4 Dead

Platforms: Xbox 360 and PC

Fans still yearn for the days when Left 4 Dead was at its peak. Valve has really capitalized on an idea that other developers have struggled to replicate. Somehow Left 4 Dead managed to combine satisfying first-person shooters with a series of challenging yet comical campaigns that felt unique.

The flow of a campaign varies due to the random placement of enemy zombies, but it typically offers a satisfying balance of difficulty and fun. Resident Evil is often remembered for being silly and wacky, so if you like Left 4 Dead (and its sequel) you're looking for one of the games like Resident Evil.

The Medium

Platforms: PC and Xbox Series

Coming up as the newest game on this list, The Medium is a fascinating psychological horror game from Bloober Team. A lot of it is narrative focused, so let's not spoil that here. It aligns more with the spooky elements of Resident Evil, often delving into the main character's psyche.

Its core mechanics have players controlling two realities at the same time, using a split-screen presentation. This opens the door to a lot of clever puzzles which are one of the reasons why The Medium got a spot on this list of games like Resident Evil. It doesn't have the same level of polish as Capcom's games, but it's worth checking out, at least to include a unique idea.

The Evil Within

Plataformas: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One e PC

The Evil Within series is a spiritual successor to Resident Evil. It was actually directed by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series. After playing both series, you can definitely tell that they come from the same creator. The Evil Within leans more towards psychological horror elements, introducing you to off-the-rail creatures and situations that don't exist in reality as we know it.

But from a gameplay standpoint, The Evil Within is a representation of the biggest hits of Resident Evil games that came before it, combining stealth with action, all under the frame of survival horror. If you only play one entry in this list of games like Resident Evil, it has to be The Evil Within.
