I have been playing RE directors cut recently and I'm enjoying it much more than I thought I would. I'm thinking about getting the 2nd one because of it and I have never played it before either. But this got me searching on a new installment and I have read the possibility of it going back to its roots maybe even a full reboot and I was curious what you would like to see back?
1. The flashlight: I love the flashlight in the video. Leon can move the flashlight just by moving his arm instead of maybe having to turn his whole body. This could set up some great scares really bring back the true horror feel.
2. Camera angles: In ways its a little clunky sure but again it brings the atmosphere out and it can really turn your focus on something that maybe you wouldn't catch if it was just 3rd person.
3. 3rd person aiming if wanted: In the video we see that not only can you shoot like the original RE but you can also have the 3rd person view like RE4 and RE5. This lowers a bit of the limitations to the camera as you wont have to shoot enemies you cant see.
4. Zombies: nuff said :)
Setting (if its not a reboot) : I would like somewhere that makes you feel cut off from the world. Somewhere that right when you start its apparent that you are alone and there is no help coming for you. Maybe somehow bring it on to a huge cruise ship in the middle of the ocean on a stormy night and bring the rocky waters into a gameplay mechanic (think some game sort of did that don't know the name)
Just my small ideas I would like to see in the next installment that could make it truly a great survival horror game. Well what do you guys think? Any ideas that would would like to see?
EDIT: Also found this fan made poster. I thought it was cool and also had some good ideas posted on it as well
