Old Resident Evil Style Game Better Than The New Ones

I love the Resident Evil series and it's one of my favorite game franchises with great horror feel and nicely done storylines.

As I have played and watched some of these games, I always had the feeling that the old-school style were better than the newer style from Resident Evil 4 and onwards.

After the remake release of the first Resident Evil, it just looked fantastic and gave a taste of nostalgia saying to myself: "God, the Resident Evil games were so much better!" I have played and watched people play Resident Evil 4 and didn't have the same feeling like older games. While RE4 is a merit to itself, I still fine RE1, 2, and 3 were so much compelling and had great jumpscares with different locations and enemies.

So, what do you guys think? Which of the styles do you prefer? The old-school style of the more action driven style of the newer ones?



"Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea
For the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number. Its number is six hundred and sixty six."

I hate tank controls so the latter control scheme always suited me better.

Re: Old Resident Evil Style Game Better Than The New Ones

Old school captured the survival horror feel perfectly and actually FORCED the player to think before they move and plan out their decisions. RE4 started the whole mindless third-person shooter by turning it into a casual action-fest where any mistake is forgiven easily.

I'll be really upset of REmake 2 isn't in the style of REmake.

Re: Old Resident Evil Style Game Better Than The New Ones

The first 3 RE games were untouchable (nearest competition at the time being Silent Hill) for scares & strategy but I agree OP, their releases since RE4 have all become more story-driven with sectioned shoot-up areas and mini-boss areas that have taken away from their original series. Seems to be, over the last decade passed, an ongoing trend where developers are split & reformed and the franchise taken in a different direction much like Square Enix had from Squaresoft and FF altered some areas for the better but some worse.

I haven't played any of the remakes, but I'd love to see a halfway point between the old tank controls and the new 3ps pony parade.

The games stopped being good when it stopped being about Zombies and it was those pod/plant people.

The controls got way better but the story got must worse. If the could do RE2 with the new controls it would be amazing even more than the original.

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.

Re: Old Resident Evil Style Game Better Than The New Ones

Old-school style for sure. I hated the direction the newer ones went in

Re: Old Resident Evil Style Game Better Than The New Ones

My favorite ones are RE 2 and RE 4, so I don't know that I favor one style over the other. I just love any RE that has Leon and Ada in it LOL

Without a doubt. I also prefer the older metal gears.
