10 Games like Resident Evil 4 to sink your teeth into

Resident Evil 4 is a pretty fantastic video game, right? So it makes sense that you’ll be looking for more after rolling credits on another fantastic remake from Capcom. Here’s our list of 10 games like Resident Evil 4 to sink your teeth into.

The 10 games like RE4 to sink your teeth into

Resident Evil 4 (2005) & other RE games

The obvious choice for a game like Resident Evil 4 is another version of Resident Evil 4! If you haven’t played the original, you really owe it to yourself to, it’s a great time. Likewise, other Resident Evil games have pretty similar design philosophies to the RE4 remake, such as the other recent Resident Evil remakes of 2 & 3.

The Evil Within

The Evil Within has the same director as the original Resident Evil 4, that being Shinji Mikami. It not only shares the same director however, as it’s also a third-person survival horror game. For me, it’s probably a lot scarier than Resident Evil 4, but I’m also a big scaredy cat, so you might be fine! The first game is a great game all by itself, but the second entry is honestly a very underrated gem of a game.

Dead Space

Dead Space is one of the best survival horror games out there, and I think Dead Space 2 is just as good as well. With the recent (and excellent!) remake releasing this past January, and with it being on Game Pass/EA Play now, there’s never been a better time to play Dead Space.

Silent Hill

Silent Hill is one of the most legendary survival horror franchises you can find, so it makes sense to add it to this list. Many people’s favorite is Silent Hill 2, which is getting a remake soon, but the other games in the series are also worth a shot.

Dead Rising

Dead Rising is another classic action/horror game from Capcom. It might seem a bit light on the horror, my personal favorite entry into the series is Dead Rising 2, which I adored playing back in the day.

Doom (2016)

This recommendation might seem like a bit of a stretch. The logic with this is that Resident Evil 4 is one of the best third-person shooters of all-time, and if you’re after some more immaculate action then you may as well seek out one of the best first-person shooters of all-time!

Devil May Cry 5

Devil May Cry has a pretty storied history with Resident Evil 4 in particular, as the first game was originally an early version of Resident Evil 4. Shiji Mikami, the director of Resident Evil 4 is also an executive producer of the first game.

Haunting Ground

Haunting Ground is a bit of an underrated classic. Another horror game from Capcom, this game is a spiritual successor to the classic horror series Clock Tower.


While Gloomwood might be an immersive sim, it has some elements of horror, too. Gloomwood sees you trying to escape a curse-ridden city using stealth, weapons, and managing items with an inventory system straight out of Resident Evil 4.


The final game on this list is one that might seem a little bit of a wildcard pick on the surface. Cultic is an old-school shooter in the vein of something like Doom or Wolfenstein, that has some vibes that are similar to Resident Evil 4.
