Resident Evil 7 is still scaring the crap out of a lot of people.


Resident Evil 7 has been out for a fortnight and made its debut at the UK top spot last week.

Capcom’s fresh take on the franchise is riding the wave of glowing reviews and equally positive consumer reception and is hanging on to the No.1 spot for a second week.

If it can stick it out for a third week, Resident Evil 7 will catch up with Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 5 to hold the longest run at UK No.1 for a title in the series.

GTA 5 is still at No.2 while Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter has dropped from third place to 21.

Hitman: The Complete First Season came out last week and settles in to the top ten at No.4 while Square Enix’s second top ten title, Final Fantasy 15, climbs up from 15 to 8.

You can check out this week’s full top ten list below:

  1. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  2. GTA 5
  3. FIFA 17
  4. Hitman: The Complete First Season
  5. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  6. Rocket League
  7. Battlefield 1
  8. Final Fantasy 15
  9. WWE 2K17
  10. Mafia 3
