I love and hate this game. It was a great deal of fun and was pretty revolutionary at the time, but as a huge Resi geek I recognize this game as the point where the series went downhill

You know what I dont understand? The fear over regenerators. To be frank, I thought the parasites that came out of a persons head after it exploded were more frightening. That or Dr. Salvador. It was a really REALLY overexaggerated part of the game. Maybe it's because the noises they made sounded like giggles and it made me giggle too.

The game went more downhill AFTER this, Resident evil 4 was still creepy as **** .

The regenerators were terrifying and if you didn't have the thermal score, were almost impossible to kill...

Resident evil 5 was ****

Alright, I know you have all the right to have your own opinion but I must speak because I like Resident Evil, the videogames.     
    
The game did not go downhill, it just changed. It had to, technology evolves and so must videogames, that is why they had to modify the game mechanics. They could no longer have the third person static camera view, they could do better and they did.     
Now when it comes to Resident Evil IV, although a great game, I did not really like the whole "Plagas" deal as I like the usual virus outbreak in a city. However, I can see why they had to do it like this, with the new movement and camera the zombies were no longer a threat as we can see in Resident Evil VI.     
Resident Evil V had nothing wrong with it. I had fun playing it even when I'm not a fan of Chris and Sheva doesn't help at all.     
I have also played Resident Evil VI and I have to say it is my favorite so far. I like they brought back Sherry, I know her as Resident Evil II was my favorite game, and how there are plenty of characters to play as. The Co-op mode is great, a friend and I played through the four campaigns and none of them disappointed me. Also, Ada Wong, and Carla Radames, have to be the prettiest girls I have seen in a videogame so far.

I disagree. I don't think they had to change the gameplay mechanics, and if they did, I think they could have retained the old ones. Take Metal Gear Solid for example. MGS has up until now retained the same somewhat wonky controls. However, MGS retains the ability to let players play how they want. First person or third person. If RE could have offered players thee ability to play over the shoulder or fixed camera they wouldn't have pissed off so many fans. (And I know they can do it, you could unlock fixed camera in RE5 DLC)

The control change is the LEAST of my reasoning for why it went downhill though. With all due respect, RE6's plot is garbage. Convoluted, non sensical crap. And RE4 is to blame. RE4 is the most unnecessary game plot ever. Look at the gap between RE3 and RE4. Hell, even RE: CV and RE4. The fall of Umbrella, Leon becoming a secret service agent, the change from zombies to parasites and Lord of the Rings trolls. It is all skipped over, and is a waste. And Every game since then has outdrawn itself trying to make more outrageous monsters than RE4. Now we're fighting Neo Umbrella (lame) aqua looking alien monsters? And clones? And Chinese cultist...ostriches? And RE6 makes you play the same parts 4 times over and really brings nothing new to the table after the 2nd time.

I also blame the movies for Capcom's destroying of the series. Before the piece of crap movies we never saw things like Clones or Laser hallways. Oh, and AI partners. The game will never be scary when you have a dumb as bricks AI partner.

I agree with you. But I'm still one of those people who liked resident evil 1 and 2 more than 6 and 5. Part 4 was still an awosome game, but like you said it was different, to the oldschool survival horror stuff.
User avatar #12 to #11 - stifflimb (04/09/2014) [-]
Agreed, but I would have liked to see more of horror element instead of the action element it's more focused on, like Dead Space felt more horror focused than Resident Evil 5-6 although it still was mainly action.
User avatar #13 to #12 - deathsn (04/09/2014) [-]
Yes, of course. That is why they are survival horror games and that is actually what I think the biggest challenge is because, at least for myself, it is not easy to get scared.
