RE4 and REmake are the best Resident Evil games

although I have a huge soft spot for Resident Evil 2 also but you could play RE4 and REmake now and they have aged fantastically well

"I decided to work more action into Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 4 would have been a more scary, horror-focused game if the remake had sold well.”

I'm a tad confused here...I'm not saying I don't like RE4, it's absolutely amazing in my opinion but one of the small flaws they needed to improve on in RE5 was toning down the action a little bit and adding more horror (something we never got in RE5). It nearly had action and horror balanced out they just needed to improve on that instead of going over the top

I mean he's saying he added it because the RE remake failed but the problem is they only released it on the Gamecube....THE GAMECUBE. The remake would of sold a ton on the PS2 and that could of changed the future of RE forever, hell it might not of been ruined in RE5.

So I don't get why he's surprised it failed when it was there own fault of just releasing it on that one platform.

RE4 is THE worst RE ever ... ruined the series... is even worse than 5 ...now capcom wonders why is loosing money with the abortions (RE5,RE6,RE mercenaries,RErevelations) that followed ...SHinji made a terrible mistake to turn the series action oriented and one of the reasons that RE remake failed is that stayed exclusive for the failed Gamecube console
