I think at this point RE needs a reboot and be given back its original survival/horror theme.They should also remove the single player co-op thing that RE5 introduced,that totally dissolves the fear factor. New characters would def be great also.

Actually be Resident Evil and not "Dude Bro vs Teh Zombiez!"

Things I'd remove:

-No more over the shoulder cam
-no more zombies that have guns
-no more QTE

Things I'd add:

-go back to it just taking place in just a few areas. The small confined maps of the first 3 RE games added to the sense of fear since you had very little space to escape.
-no more crazy weapons. Keep it simple so you just feel like someone trying to survive instead of feeling like Arnold Schwartzeneger at the end of the movie Commando.

Easy: Capcom give the ip to shinji, then shinji will make a real RE game again :)

Make the games more about survival horror and not about online co-op. and go back to having the fixed camera positions and put puzzles back in the games
