I Finished A Video Game: Dino Crisis Series Retrospective | An Exhaustive History and Review

NeoGAFs Kent Brockman

Today we excavate the bones of a long extinct franchise - Capcom's second greatest survival horror series - DINO CRISIS.

For too long has it languished in the shadow of Resident Evil and today we'll be shining the spotlight on just what made it such a survival horror classic and why people are desperate for a Dino Crisis remake.

There will be many tangents - Where Devil May Cry came from? What movies does Shinji Mikami like? Why does nobody play Time Crisis with a controller and just how exactly does a dinosaur fly a spaceship?

It's part critique, part retrospective, part review and part history lesson - obviously full of spoilers and obviously full of my opinions.

Let's just hope after Capcom done remaking every Resident Evil game, they might pick up Dino Crisis, a sequel or a remake, anything.

But I also wish they could pick up Onimusha. An Onimusha Sequel with modern graphic and game design could rival Sekiro

You bet. Remakes or Reboots

Are far less risky than creating a brand new IP.
