Kawata says he's 'revised his opinion' on action-focused Resident Evil

Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata has said that he has "started to revise [his] opinion" on comments he made last year about making the series more action-oriented after looking at "user feedback from the last couple of games". (Masachika Kawata, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

" Hopefully it can appeal to both camps."

For god sake...it's like they know but they can't let go of the action route they want to go. It's kind of like "We can prove people wrong, they will like it, we'll just have to try again harder"

If I was him and RE5 got complaints over this and then RE6 then that would be it for me..."My idea failed, fans were right, I shouldn't of screwed over my fanbase"

They just can't let go...they are so proud it's unreal

Not sure if proud or dense.

Couldn't agree more with @Root.

There is something undeniably wrong with his head. It's not that they tried to cater to both in RE6, it's that they screwed fans over and made it MORE action than RE5. Screw Leons campaign, that was even more screwed up than RE5. It's sad that you could basically go around kung fu them to death the entire campaign. It was seriously like a RE parody.

Anyways... I hope they go back to the roots, for real this time.

I have nothing against the action route as far as how the gameplay and controls are now; however, game needs its roots back.

RE6 was an absolute mess of a game that had good ideas. Stick to one well developed campaign with cameos from other characters, have a co-op mode for those who love it, and bring back the horror.
FarCryLover182  +   591d ago
Resident Evil 6 (According to VgCharts) has sold like 1.48 Million worldwide for 360 and around that number on PS3.

I am sure they were expecting 5 million+ in sales per console since it "went action."

I hope they realized that it can only be successful if you make a game for the fans that have been around and bought all their games in the past.

These publishers think they can get the "COD crowd" by making $hi&&y action games, but as we can tell... they can't. Those people ONLY play COD, FIFA, Madden, etc. The same thing each year.

So please, save yourself and make a good game. With those hundreds and hundreds of people that worked on RE6, I am sure they took a major financial loss.

Save yourself Capcom.

and that's the annoying thing, so many devs are trying to appeal to the COD crowd, but NONE of them and I mean NONE of them ever prevail, there's nothing unique about RE6's failed "action" approach as made clear with so many games before it, all it does in the end is alienate fans, I am so dreading Dead Space 3 release date
Seraphim  +   590d ago
it's not even just the COD crowd. Developers are just trying to hard to make their games more appealing to the masses. The fact of the matter is that the masses are going to either buy a game or pass. Stick to your roots, stick to what the fans expect because at the end of the day they're the only ones buying your games..... that is the simple fact of the matter. These people buying/playing these games, CoD, Madden, etc often only play those games. They're casual gamers for a reason. They have a very select number of games they buy and play....

Yo your totally right man. My friends ps3 broke, and he bought a new one just for blops 2. His new ps3 came with a ps plus subscription and he just gave me the ps plus sub for free. He said he doesnt even care about the free games from ps plus, he only wanted to play his stupid cod game.

How the heck can people be so hooked on such a stupid game? But either way, your right: Those who love cod usually ONLY play Cod. Because if they tried other games, they'd realize how outdated COD has become.

It's embarrassing to even consider myself a fan of the series anymore with how horrible the series became since RE4.
clintagious650  +   591d ago
I cant believe how bad RE6 turned out to be. I mean for me i thought it was way too short compared to all the other RE games. Really was a let down. They need to go back to their old formula which made so many of us love the franchise in the 1st place.
cycofoo831  +   591d ago
Just fucking keep making scary games. how hard can that be? japanese designers are all good at making fucked up movies and games. what happened?
LiquidSword93  +   591d ago
Greed happened. And it's as blind a mole.
XXXL  +   591d ago
Capcom has really lost touch with it's fan base. Between the Resident evil series and megaman debacle I've lost all faith in them.
wishingW3L  +   591d ago
just play Dead Space 1 and improve on the formula!
snake-OO  +   591d ago
Didn't they say the same thing for RE 5?
FarCryLover182  +   588d ago
Yes, but RE5 sold a pretty good amount so they must have decided to keep the formula.

This however..... tanked, especially with the hundreds and hundreds of people they had working on it. Cost a fortune to develop.
Son_Lee  +   591d ago
They want to keep selling new installments to fans of the older games in the series.

I believe when I see especially from Capcom. You better not turn chris, leon into skinny emo looking teens
boldscot  +   591d ago
Reading that and now everything makes sense, one thing is abundantly clear, Res is dead!
Their refusal to accept that trying to cater for everyone with more action oriented gameplay is the reason the game is dying is going to completely kill the game.

They deserve to FAIL!

Never bite that hand that feeds you scums.
