Rest in Peace, Resident Evil

As hyped as I might have been before E3 for Resident Evil 6, the recent gameplay shown at the gaming industry’s biggest trade show has all but killed my excitement for Capcom’s latest iteration of the popular RE franchise. The Resident Evil series has always been known and loved for its survival horror roots, but after the release of Resident Evil 5, Capcom has opted for a more mainstream-friendly, action-packed vibe in its most well-regarded franchise.

Does anyone at Capcom listen to the fans? We wan't survival horror back well not all of us but most. I mean they say this will be survival horror but it doesn't look like it.

about RE6....
the game is still about survival horror mixed with action why can't anyone understand that?!

the threat is now global and everyone knows about it so of course, there will be militaries, shootings, governments reacting and stuff.... this is why the "action" is part of this game

The game looked so bad, they did a very good Resident evil on 3ds and now when I watched re6 60min video gameplay I was so disappointed.

all I see was 2 bullets and melee attacks, so lame, and those moves on the floor looked like breakdance.

I no buying and RE was my favorite game series, RE1 and RE0 on gamecube good fucking times
