Re: Old Resident Evil Style Game Better Than The New Ones
The best games in the series are REmake, RE2 and RE4.
I've always loved the style of the older games and the REmake just captured that perfectly. Adding a fantastic graphics upgrade, improved the story, redesigning locations and adding new puzzles. Even the tank controls were fine in the environment that they were situated making encounters intense. It's how I thought they'd continue the series. But then MIKAMI made RE4 and turned the series into a third person shooter/horror, influencing many games in the process. Now, with 4 they still had horror elements in the game - The atmosphere was still there, certain parts had jump scares, and those Regeneradors are terrifying. It's just they added more of an action-y style to it. But I was fine with that, it was a great mixture.
It's just in 5 they totally destroyed it. Not giving a shit about anything other than action. CAPCOM just couldn't come up with anything new for the franchise and loaded that game with bland characters, boring locations - basically copying the format of 4 - and a shite story. And that cover system. Ugh. Fuck that.
So I'm actually quite glad that they are remaking the second as the remake of the first is my favourite in the franchise. Really can't wait to see what they can do.
