How The Mighty Have Fallen

From Toasty Controller...

"This whole boring intro leads to the fact that Resident Evil 6 has now launched, and has not been given nearly the amount of praise most had hoped for when it was originally announced. Shall we?

2005 - Resident Evil 4: 95.75%
2000 - Resident Evil Code: Veronica: 93.96%
1998 - Resident Evil 2: 92.57%
1996 - Resident Evil: 89.95%
1999 - Resident Evil 3: Nemesis: 88.48%
2009 - Resident Evil 5: 87.11%
2002 - Resident Evil 0: 84.15%
2012 - Resident Evil 6: 67.05%*

*This is subject to change due to reviews being added to the overall score, but it is safe to say the overall reception will not surpass any other Resident Evil title.

Ooof. Based on 51 reviews for the 360 version from Metacritic (66%) and 22 reviews for the PS3 version (77%) I forged a 67.05% average game score. This is by far the lowest number in the main series, which is very disappointing considering I actually had high hopes for this game." (Capcom, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

I could care less abt how bad re6 is. Everyone knows. But if it sells even somewhat well I think I'll go nuts.

Yeah the top 3 are pretty spot on.

I also notice that the top 3 games have 2 thing in common. One Leon is a main character & two Claire Redfield is the other. Now that Leon has been a part of the lowest rated game in the series his reputation has taken a hit.

Which leads me to my confusion is why Capcom has not gone back to Claire in any game since Veronica? She is an interesting character to build on so why isn't she not utilized more.

I don't believe the characters play that much of a factor in the overall product. If Chris Redfield was the protagonist of RE4 it would have been the same incredible game.

But I would like to see Claire return.
