Capcom and the Fall of Resident Evil

From confusing spin-offs to failed attempts at replicating blockbuster movies, years of an schizophrenic identity crisis for Capcom’s longstanding brand finally imploded into a total meltdown with Resident Evil 6. Capcom learned the hard way that putting profits first at any cost can result in disaster.

Capcom, I want this 6 min video to turn into a 20h game, using the Panta Rhei engine. Thanks.

how hard could it possibly be to make a game like this? makes you wonder why they still chose to make that shooter crap.

I use to love the resident evil series. I hope capcom can create something special next gen.

ShugaCane1304d ago

I hope "that shooter crap" doesn't refer to RE 4. Say whatever you want, the game is a masterpiece. The pacing, the gameplay, the graphics, not many games match that level of finition. One of the greatest achievement in game design. 5 and 6 are crap, though.

@karmicDemon...
Resident evil 4 added giant robot walking statues and things that mutated in a split second to skyscraper size. It also added unlimited ammo in the form that even dead dogs dropped shotgun shells for you.

Resident evil 4 was also corny as all hell story wise. It started interesting, had some good asthetics... but that game was the beginning of the end for the series. It wasnt anything new, it wasnt an achievement.. it was lets see what happens if we make resident evil into an over the shoulder shooter and give u unlimited ammo. It was basically the dumbing down of resident evil to be more accessible to children.

Don't worry....shinji was behind this version, even tho it was cut. Just Don't forget his NEW true survival game that's in the works...apparently its going to be surreal. We shall see.

Since him leaving Capcom, Crapcom have lost their vision completely.

i want a reboot but not a RE4-like, there are RE5 and 6 for that.
for me RE downfall started with RE4 after they removed all the horror and puzzling from it.
RE4 should have been a spin off, not a main episode. let's see what they have in stock for us, but i dont have high hopes it's gonna be an action game again.

At least RE4 had the tension and atmosphere and a great story too.
RE6 was just Gears of war covered by the name Resident Evil.

DivineAssault 1304d ago

I hope a reboot is being prepped for PS4.. The series deserves it

Chrono1304d ago

The should make one like Code Veronica.

This series has turned into a joke.
If they do make another Resident Evil, it'll likely be filled with shameless microtransactions.
To hell with Resident Evil and to hell with Capcom.

Resident Evil 6 is not that bad of a game people. I do not understand the hate. Of course if I had a choice I would choose RE2 as my favorite RE game, but every RE game is great in it's own way. I think some people will never be satisfied no matter how good a game is.
