@Humanity: The controls in the classic Resident Evil games, since I assume that's what you're referring to, are just as responsive as the controls in RE4 onward. Seriously, as far as tank controls go, they're surprisingly smooth in games like RE3 and the remake in particular.
Glad you said that. Man, I hate when people continually make that mistake. Back when RE4 came out, everyone kept going on and on about how much better the controls were, but the truth is they were hardly altered. The aiming is different, but that's it. The only thing that was changed drastically was the camera. Wish more people would pick up on that.
