The norm of Resident Evil, especially Traditional titles, utilized the Files system to portray the significance of investigation. One example is Resident Evil 2 which highlighted the use of Films as part of its archive to showcase not only experiments but also some Easter Eggs. However, with the advent of Resident Evil 4, Treasures populate several locations spread across the island. These signify the importance of the Pesetas system to capitalize on increasing the player’s currency in order to buy and upgrade items and weapons.
However, Resident Evil 7 introduces Treasure Photos which gives the player the choice to backtrack to certain locations. It requires Ethan to decipher certain secrets to obtain hidden Items, that although not necessary to progress through the game, they conveniently shape up Ethan’s performance during difficult encounters.
