I don't get why people are getting so emotional over this game. I'm reading comments on the internets and people are like, batshit crazy about how this game turned to be. Now, RE is considered a super huge series, but back in the days, no one liked it. And I'm going to stand my ground on this. I remember trying to convince everybody to play with me, but no one liked it.
Very few could bear its bad controls, bad storyline, bad everything except its relatively cool setting. And then came RE2. It basically was RE1 done right with more action. And then came along RE3, with its assault rifles, ammo crafting mechanics and merc modes. Nobody liked it, because of the Nemesis.
I'm not going to comment on Code Veronica. It sucks.
And then came REmake, which was RE1 done right once again. RE0 came out and I never could bear to control two characters on one gamepad. I remember people saying it needed to be co-op.
RE4 came out shortly afterwards and perfected the... third person shooter. That's why we loved RE4. It's fucking gunplay. You spend 80% of this game shooting people in various zones of their bodies and then doing supplex moves on them.
RE5 releases, and people bitch about how its racist, how Chris' muscles are too big, how Sheva is stupid, blah blah blah. And the tank controls. You guys didn't like tank controls. Yet, I clocked around 110 hours in this game. I just loved it. I loved to play co-op, the AI partner was damn fine for me because I didn't give my health items to a fucking AI, unlike so many players. I even bought it back on a steam sale, a week ago. God damn this game looks gorgeous.
We showed the world we bought 16 M units of Call of Duties yearly. That we loved Batman. That we love QTE's and God of War. We showed the world we loved Battlefield and jets and assault rifles and shit. We showed the world we liked action games and proved it would sell a shit ton better than old-ass horror games. We made this.
RE6 releases. Four fucking campaigns to honor each of RE's strengths. Nearly 7 hours long each. Liberty of movement. Co-op. Merc mode. Agent mode. Zombies. Infected. And yet Brad and the internet cries.
I don't get humans. It's like trying to please an abusive, princessy girlfriend who keeps screaming at everything.
