Surviving Horror: Resident Evil

Few games in recent years have been as polarizing as Resident Evil 6. A big budget, convoluted mess of a game. It may be functional but its direction and focus are awry, quick time events littering any moment of over-the-top action, unsatisfying and counterintuitive gunplay occupying the rest. It’s a game rightfully discounted by many critics and fans alike, and yet there still exists a vocal audience completely happy with the direction the once-transcendent franchise has taken. If these are diehard fans of the series willing to defend any old tripe Capcom puts out, I struggle to understand why. If you love Resident Evil, harkening all the way back to its roots, how can you feel anything other than disappointment for the way Capcom has handled one of its most beloved franchises?
