I like both types of RE. I just take each on its own terms. Ideally we'll get both in equal measure.

I can understand that. If I ever end up cutting back on games. Resident Evil along with Metal Gear would be the series I would still end up always making time for. Hell even now they're the two series that I go out of my way for. I want to add Dino Crisis to that, but you know capcom has to make a new game first.

Yeah, that's usually how arguments start.

But, I mean, can you really call yourself a fan of something if you only enjoyed the first classic era, which was so long ago there's more "bad" than good at this point?

I absolutely love classic Simpsons but I wouldn't call myself a Simpsons fan because there's been almost 20 terrible seasons by now.

Well I just don't see how you can say we are not fans because we like the older games more?

With RE 4 being this weird middle ground that everyone seems to like there have only been two games us so called "not really fans" haven't really liked (at least main line games) so I guess with your simpsons analogy I would still argue, the majority of the series I like, the last couple have been poor but hopefully they turn it around.

The first shooty shooty bang bang game that was popular came out in 2005.

That's nine years after Resident Evil 1 in 1996.

2005 was 11 years ago.

Its been an action franchise longer than a horror one now.

I'm currently playing through REmake and replaying RE5, and I was just thinking the same thing — how no matter the differences in style (i.e. survival horror vs. action horror), the series as a whole always feels "cozy" to me.

I think it's the combination of great gameplay and design (whichever style you choose) and a cast of lovable characters who are extremely capable in horrifying situations, and who overcome cool-looking creatures in atmospheric environments. You feel "safe" with these characters, even if the overall situation feels dangerous. That makes the experience more like a rollercoaster ride, where you can feel scared or panicked but still have fun.

And the overall lore plays it straight despite the innate silliness of it all. That, along with the way characters appear in multiple installments and allow you to watch them grow, turns RE into something of a soap opera.

It's great!

My main likes for Resident Evil was always the Biological warfare aspect to it. Specifically with the BOWs. Just like the idea of serums making monsters, giving people powers, and people having to survive or put a stop to those things with their normal means. I'll always be sad how ORC took the idea I had wanted for years, and at best made a OK product.

Thats fair enough, I'm not someone who would go out of my way to shit on the newer games.

I've even said before I think RE should just stay what it is now, just wish Capcom (or anyone) would make a new game with that old school RE style.

Fair enough; its definitely the "original" style as opposed to the "expected" or "normal" style by this point.

For as much as I dislike 6, I was really bothered by the number of reviews critiquing the lack of horror (specifically in Chris' campaign), as if that's still mandatory in a franchise now a decade removed from that genre.

I think they should make a game called RESIDENT EVIL: WAR ON TERROR that is essentially a two-in-one Mercs and Raid game. You choose your mode, you choose from any character in franchise history, and you test your skills in maps from across the series. And for Raid, there would be levels like "Ghost Ship" in RER1 Raid, with sprawling maze-like environments where you choose your own path and there are multiple exits, but only one true exit that leads to the final boss. Imagine going through an expanded version of the REmake Spencer Estate in this fashion!

Never played the home version since it didn't come to NA. But I beat the actual arcade unit in co-op and had a blast. One of my best arcade moments. Was top of the leaderboard as well. It didn't make much sense, but it was fun in a fan-service kind of way.

Yep. I still hope for the day we get a full-fledged mercs/raid game. Was hoping Mercs 3D was a prelude to it when it first came out. Shame it was released before the CPP. Would have been amazing to go back to now with another analog stick.

Even though I strongly prefer the older games in the series, I'll always keep buying the new ones and playing them (albeit probably discounted in a sale), so long as they keep bringing back all these characters that I've grown attached to since the 90s. I feel obligated to follow their continuing journey, and see it through.

Which is why I am utterly baffled every time someone calls for a reboot. Replacing all those characters (at this point the main reason I'm still even buying the mainline games anymore) with lookalikes with new backstories would instantly kill any interest I had in the series. Reboot Chris and Reboot Jill would not be the same characters I've grown so fond of all these years.

I want Capcom to keep going where they've been going with the series. They now have games in the series for everyone. If you want shootbang, you can get that. If you want something slower and scarier, you can get that. I may not enjoy an action RE7 as much as I enjoyed RE1 or RE2, but there's always the Revelations subseries along with classic remakes for me to look forward to. Assuming they keep making them, of course.

Oh hi, I don't usually post in community threads but Resident Evil (along with Silent Hill and Tomb Raider but those are different stories) are video game equivalents of comfort food for me. Maybe this would be a nice one to start with.

I'm a fan of the whole series (the ones that I've played at least) and don't really hate any of the games. My enjoyment of the games ranges heavily based on the cast honestly. My personal favorite series characters are Chris, Jill, Ada, Billy, Helena, and Sheva. Hopefully some of those are in RE7 or even better yet we get some fab new characters.

Revisiting and finishing RE0 for the first time ever has really put me in a mood for the series. I'll probably be revisiting the rest of the series short of the survivor titles and Gaiden because I'm a flop and don't own/have access to those. I started a replay of REmake but completely forgot about the one dangerous zombie mode and got messed up without a save so I need to begin again.

also it doesn't matter what versions of the game a person likes, it's fine if they only like the oldschool ones or the action ones or whatever but i don't think they'll ever understand that being a prick doesn't really make any argument convincing or do them any favors in not seeming like a tool

All of this, plus I tend to vividly remember the times in my life when I first played each game, and it was always such a great time, even if everything around me wasn't the greatest, the experience of playing the newest RE just made everything go away.

As a whole it looks better as released, but some areas really benefit from the introduction of color.

Especially that early walk through the sewers, just before the flying BOWs

I'll join this community, since I never got a chance to join the original!

I've played every single mainline Resident Evil and I personally can't say I dislike any of them.

I think the weakest ones are RE0 and RE6 though, and RE6 didn't feel like Resident Evil to me, but that's just how I see it. I do enjoy it though as a game of its own!

as for the spin-offs, I think I've played most of them.

I want my favorite RE character, Jill to be one of the stars in RE7.

Also REmake 2 footage and RE7 announcement trailers when!!

I wonder how Revelations games (especially 2) would come if they had bigger budget. Revelations 2 has some nice ideas, but you can see all the cuts they did, all the resources (items, environment objects, animations) taken straight from previous games etc. The biggest thing, I think, is that neither Revelations 1 nor 2 has a satisfying combat due to poor enemies' animations and hit detection.

Imagine the game being released (or a similar, scenario-based game being released) nowadays, when you have PSN, XBL and Steam with their communities.

But no, instead Capcom released one online cover-shooter is now planning to release another budget online shooter. :/

Yes. From the very start Piers was being set up as a young Chris and it seemed obvious that he would eventually replace him. But sadly, Capcom didn't have the guts to kill one of the series' main character and this would be a perfect opportunity to finally do so. It's been 20 years now and no important character (bar Wesker, but he's a villain) died in that time.

i don't think there's a lot of folks who don't like the old ones but like the new ones tbh- i'd imagine most fans like most of the games regardless of style.

like, i've rarely seen anyone who really champions the action focused REs strictly over REmake or the old ones. on the other hand, there's always a huge catfight that flares up when folks who only enjoy the older style REs do the usual internet thing of being really abrasive about their tastes. i guess it can't be helped given the huge fanbase and wildly differing genres of the games but the circular and toxic nature of those kinda fights makes RE threads quite tiresome.

i kinda get the feeling RE2 remake will just flare up the fights even more, unfortunately. folks who thrive on hate are never satisfied, haha

speaking of which, do any of ya'll think they'll add crimson heads to re2? i kinda feel like the gameplay design/purpose of crimson heads wouldn't really work as well in RE2 due to you moving through different areas quicker + the larger variety of enemies in general.

I don't think they will add Crimson Heads, but I would like to see them try and include their own new mechanics, as well as making the things you do in one scenario have a greater influence upon the other. The B.O.W. Gas for example is an element that could well be expanded upon.

And yeah, I don't care much for the Revelations games (they are enjoyable, and that's about it) but hopefully the RE2 Remake will be 100% classic RE, and succesful enough to convince Capcom to keep making new RE games in that style. It would be a perfect way to complement the main series (which I want to remain action)

It feels amazing to be a fan of both classic and action RE.

get at me

Well,the combat in PE2 is definitely better because you can actually dodge on reaction and you have a myriad of options to deal with enemies.From PE attacks to tons of weapons.

PE2 is such a great masterpiece that's sadly overlooked by so many.It easily rivals the greatest classic REs.
