I just read an article on IGN about RE returning to its roots. It seems a long time producer by the name of Masachika Kawata talks about going back to what made the original games so groundbreaking and special. He even goes as far as mentioning a possible reboot of the series. Now I love Resident Evil 4, really like Resident Evil 5, and enjoyed Resident Evil 6. However, after 6 I really had the urge for the series to start anew, and after playing REmake yet again I can say this couldn't come at a better time (with new consoles on the horizon). Of course nothing is confirmed and Resident Evil 7 could come out next year with more explosions and guns then ever, but at least fans have a glimmer of hope to hold on to until then.
