Resident Evil Village Wins Best VR Horror at Fear Fest

Feardemic held its new Fear Fest event this week, celebrating all things horror. As part of the show was the Horror Games Awards featuring 13 categories as well as a lifetime achievement award. There was a VR/AR section which had some excellent contenders, but at the end of the day, Capcom’s Resident Evil Village came out victorious.

It faced the likes of Afterlife VR, Propagation: Paradise Hotel, The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR, and The Walking Dead Saints and Sinners (Chapter 2). All great VR games if you’re a VR horror fan.

The Resident Evil franchise as a whole had a strong turnout, succeeding in a total of six categories. These included the major ones like Horror Game of The Year and Best Game Design of the Year. You can find all the winners below.
