"Resident Evil" needs a reboot

2012 has not been a great year for the Resident Evil-series. The year has brought one failure after another and its certain that devote fans are frustrated at the direction the franchise has been going. Its obvious that the status quo has been overdone and its time for a major reboot. (Culture, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Xbox 360)

Or a system restore from 1998.

It needs to go back the way resident evil one was but modernized like the GameCube remake

We're not really talking about a reboot of Resident Evil, we're talking about a reboot of Survival Horror as a whole genre. It's kinda lost its way.

If you take the main series of RE there have only been two poor games... 5 and 6. 1-4 were great and so was Code Veronica. And the Gamecube remake was excellent.

It's the over saturation and dilution of RE that has hurt with all the poor spin offs.

First step is stop poisoning the IP with crappy spin offs and movies.

Second step is reboot the back story. The story has become almost impenetrable to a newbie, and there's a lot of cool ideas and rich history to RE series.

Third step, move the series back toward survival horror instead of lame half baked action.

Finally, make us care about the characters again, and tell an interesting and immersive story where our actions matter and we're put in real peril.
