Can Resident Evil 6 Raise the Franchise from the Dead?

Vicki Dolley writes: "As a long-term Resident Evil fan, I find myself becoming increasingly concerned about the direction the series has been taking the last few years. Whilst it was common knowledge that the ‘classic’ formula of the franchise (static camera, ‘tank’ controls, old inventory system) was becoming stale by the early 2000s and needed a change, Resident Evil took a turn by way of Children of the Corn and The Wicker Man and arrived at Resident Evil 4: a refreshed mode of survival horror, set in the light of daytime (a first for the series), with new mind-controlled intelligent but terrifying creatures, new third-person shooter gameplay (setting the bar for the modern third-person shooter) and an incredibly tense, slow pace. Resident Evil 4 was exactly what the series needed, and is often cited as one of the best games of all time."

This article is trolling. Resident Evil 5 was one of the best, if not THE best, selling of all time.

just because it sold doesnt mean it was the best nap

a toyota sell alot more than a ferrari does that make toyota the better car ? THINK before posting trash comment like that.

it was the FIRST res for new gen consoles...and ppl bought it blindly just like they did with the failure ff13

Of course because it sold on three platforms. While Resident Evil 2 sold 5.96 million on a console alone......

RE5 IS the best-selling RE game in the franchise (look at Capcom's platinum titles list). But I wasn't talking about money. I was talking about the quality of the experience, in particular as a RESIDENT EVIL experience. Hope this clarifies things :)

nope it cant

the game (like it or not fangirls) that will change the survival element is ofc the last of us
