God dammit. Why are they trying to run this franchise into the ground. People liked Nemesis because he was forboding and creepy and always suddenly there, not in the middle of a fucking firefight acting as the boss character. Also giving control of him to players is even worse....sigh
It's just a game dude. Plus, I doubt you're forced to play as him. If you don't wanna have fun nobody, is going to put a game to your head and make you do it.
I still take games as a serious medium, and I actually take interest in the universe and characters. Sure RE has never been a completely serious franchise, but I don't like when they do stupid shit to it. If someone took any other classical work and made a mockery of it I'm sure people would be annoyed as well. Also, yes of course I'm not going to buy it. I mean I probably wouldn't have bought it anyway as it doesn't sound very good, but now especially.
