" @Abyssfull: But why call it "ruined" when only one game is the problem? Does one sequel you didn't like somehow affect all the other ones you did like? I get that you didn't like the direction RE5 went - loads of people didn't, I wasn't too big of a fan myself - but I don't see how you can claim the entire series is ruined. Maybe I'm arguing semantics here, but it always irks me when people claim a series is ruined because of one (to them) bad game. "
I'm just being pessimistic. RE4 started its downfall imo, although was still a creepy enough game to satisfy. RE5 just plummeted it right down and I imagine that the series will only fall lower. Sort of like the ripple effect. Its apparently going to be rebooted though which gives it some hope, but again I can't help but be uneasy with the direction the series will take.
"Really, any time a sequel is just slightly inferior to it's predecessor(s) the series is suddenly "ruined". Of course there are examples of truly horrific sequels that ruined a series, but saying popular, critically acclaimed and best-selling franchises like Call of Duty, Resident Evil and Final Fantasy are ruined is just pure and utter stupidity. "
People are saying which series are ruined to them not just in general in regards to their sales n such..... Plus I said RE5 because again, for me, it did ruin the series. It took the series on a scareless more action-packed route.
