How To Improve The Resident Evil Franchise

"Resident Evil was once a beloved franchise to gamers that grew up in the mid-90′s. The name synonymous with survival-horror provided a thrill in the gaming world that few others could match at the time. Unfortunately, in this console generation of games, the franchise has suffered a major setback." (3DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Tag Invalid, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Give it to Ninja Theory. They will make a flawless game.

A new Chris Redfield that resemble Sid Vicious and a new jill Valentine that looks like Amy Whinehouse. A glorious game. The new fans will love.

They can start improving it by going back to what made Resident Evil, Resident Evil. Go back to the survival horror days when it used to be scary to play the game in the dark by yourself.

Another option is to take every single copy of RE5 & RE6, and put the xbox 360 ring around each disc so no one will have to play them.

Haha nice. That could work too. Capcom has become just....just awful over the pass few years. I swear that company is running themselves into the ground. (If they're not already under it).

Step 1: Get writers from Walking Dead game

Step 2: Add game choices like WD series

Step 3: Make game scary again

Step 4: Stop basing everygame around co-op

The series should have stopped at 4; 5 was a joke and I didn't even waste my time looking at 6; and don't even get me started on Operation Racoon City.

Remove co-op add survival horror!

Why do i have the sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that in 4-5 years i will be reading this article but instead it will be about dead space & my answer will be the same :(

REBOOT it. Employ a scare amount of ammo, guns, etc. in the game and make it truly scary. However, leave the option for those who want "pew pew pew, me shoot everyone, me want make zombies d3@d," have the option in the main menu to turn on the "Action style" ammo and weapon drops.

They already rebooted it starting with RE4 and it has been downhill ever since. They need to go back to the classic style.

We don't really need Resident Evil anymore, we have ZombiU now. But if Capcom want to take RE back to its survival horror roots then I will welcome it.

@Tetsujin

I agree 100%. 4 was amazing because it stayed true to the survival horror elements along with having the over the shoulder 3rd person shooter mechanics. There was a good balance between the two.

5 was rediculous, and I too didn't even bother with 6. I mean... when I heard that it wasn't going to be scary AND had regenerative health, I was done... and wanted to slap the sh*t outta someone.

a real survival, not part action and part survival.
Jakens  +   581d ago
I doubt there is hope for that game, or company for that matter.

it's not that hard.

Make it more like Revelations, and less like RE6. Then, improve on the Revelations formula to enhance atmosphere and sense of isolation.

BAM!! The RE franchise is fixed.

They can start by making it scary. It needs to be more like RE:Make.

This is the only answer.

Make it a playstation exclusive once again. Just try it before you disagree. Look at RE4 it was a gamecube exclusive now just imagine when Resident Evil goes back exclusive to it's original home.
