Hey everyone, this is Dusk Golem aka AestheticGamer. I have posted on NeoGAF since 2011, and have decided to resign. I have enjoyed posting about horror games here for years, but I no longer wish to support the site and will be leaving for good. I will still be around the internet, I go by AestheticGamer on YouTube, I make games on Steam as Yai Gameworks, and I plan to go by Dusk Golem on other forums. I'll be joining an off-set of the GAF community leaving to try other ventures like ResetEra (Official Twitter for that here: https://twitter.com/reseteraforum ). I hope some of you who read this may consider it, and I plan to try to expose more people to horror games in the years to come. Just not here.

You don't want that as your first playthrough, makes perfect sense you need to complete the game first.

Starting that mode from the get-go makes zero sense

Congrats to them because RE7 missed their sales target and sold 2.8 million copies less than dark, dumb ages RE6? :P

I would seriously recommend not playing on madhouse the first time anyway. It changes positions of a lot of key items and item unlocks from the base game, deliberately subverting what you expect to happen, which was half the fun.

It also would be a bit crap without at least some of the bonus items from clearing the game, honestly. It's balanced assuming you have at least some of them, in my opinion.

It's still successful tho, nobody in their sane mind thought a pure survival horror was going to sell as well as a loud action game with Coop.

What this shows is that the SH market is still there and the series doesn't have to go all guns blazing.

Yes, 5 and 6 will remain the highest selling of the series, but they can always churn out another action game with zero level design and dumb plot like 6, the 7's are necessary to gain goodwill and build a stable fanbase.

Who knows if a pure action shooter will do as well in the era of the GaaS.

i was really surprised by the announcement of RE7 and was hyped as fuck, i loved RE7 and it's probably the only game in this generation that i finished in one set

it really hurt when i read that Capcom is disappointment with RE7 sales, that means RE8 will probably be like RE6

i just hope they make the next mainline game in the series like RE7 and make Revelations series as a spin-off RE-mini series like RE6, that way they can make RE series for both, the true fans and the fans that destroyed the series

I'm one of the weird ones who loves almost all RE games. Love the shit out of 6. Love the shit out of 7. Love the shit out of 1, 2, 3. Feel the most lukewarm on 4 from the main series, but I still like it a lot.

I'm weird! Outbreak 1 and 2 are the best!

6 and 7 are not the only options for the series, there were 5 great games before either of those polarizing entries.

Not to mention the new direction the series took with 4 is the RE team's fault, they were bored of working on the classic formula and team members were even leaving to work on other games for this reason.

Also at some point Capcomís accounting method seems to have changed, it used to separate budget reprints but doesnít anymore. Otherwise the Gold releases would be a different SKU.

I purposefully didn't want to count all of the SKU's together so I just went with what the Top 10 sellers are on Capcom Platinum Sales as is lol

The Wii version alone sold 2 million, right? Or is the GCN version the only one that's counted for this comparison?

Resident EVil 5 - 9.5 million
Resident Evil 6 - 8 million
Resident Evil 4 - 5.9 million
Resident Evil/Resident Evil:Director's Cut - 5.08 million
Resident Evil 2 - 4.96 million
Resident Evil 7 - 4+ million
