I actually loved RE5, it was a good game. RE6 was terrible.

RE5 was a decent action game, but a terrible horror game. RE6 was a bad everything.

that part where chris punch a boulder still cracks me up.

SpiralTear pretty much hit the nail on the head. RE5 pretty good.

RE6 was just crap.

Though both are better than that festering pile of poo called: RE: ORC.

Except RE6 was a billion times better than RE5. Both sucked, but let's keep it real here. 5 blows harder than a well used prostitute.

Neither of them sucked.....They weren't as good as they could have been but they weren't terrible either...While I liked RE6, I can admit that it's main problem was trying to be everything to everyone instead of focusing on one thing

Resident Evil 6 I enjoyed, 5 not as much.

RE5 was the very first game I got a Platinum trophy in.

Downfall of the RE series when they converted to action games instead of horror games.
Chard  +   484d ago
I'd say the downfall coincided with Shinji Mikami no longer being at the helm
Baccra17  +   483d ago
RE 4 ruined it all, and Mikami was there for that Chard.
ShaunCameron  +   483d ago
The funny thing is he made RE4 the way it was because he got sick of the previous formula.

Enjoyed Resident Evil 5. It was also a really good co-op ACTION game. I refuse to use the word horror with Resident Evil any more.

It needs a fresh start.

I know this is way of Subject but my fellow gamers I've been trying to get the big 3 Sony Microsoft and Nintendo to make a cross play game.. Now listen in the game it's a MP shooter/almost anything now hold your like how's that?So if your playing on the WII u you get to pick nintendo owned and third party ips that we gamer think in our own gamer hearts belong on nintendo and each one will play kinda like how the would in there game so TUROK Samus FPS MArio one jump you get what I mean for game play and link hack and slash and same for the other 2 sony and Microsoft and each will have its own list only on there system and each one built to go with that ones strength wii u gamepad/ second screen 3DS remote play. XBox one connect/cloud /touch screen thing app. PS4 touchpad/ six axis/ remote play and then third party neutral IP character that all sides that can pick and some only 2 sides can pick just one that belong and have been on one there systems and here's the best part they can market it about fanboys now they can fight each other in that system video game world and see witch ones the best so let's all join together speak up show them we want this they want money we want great video games that are new and fresh but have what we love and this is the next big thing in gaming if done right I will buy all 3.. let's get the game we all been dreaming of since we were kids.. and no DLC just make a new one every gen let's make this happen sorry for wall of text and very bad grammar but yeah come one spam all there emails pass the Word on!!

you are crazy x_x
RJ92009  +   484d ago
How so? It can happen and why the Disagrees? It's a great idea and a win for us gamers
CorndogBurglar  +   484d ago
So you knew you had a wall of text and bad grammar, so much so that you apologized in the article for it, yet you did nothing break it up into paragraphs or fix the grammar and punctuation. Nice.

Also, terrible idea.
RJ92009  +   484d ago
How is it a bad idea and I don't care it's n4g and I'm lazy
VileAndVicious  +   484d ago

Total life time sales of DmC are 1.6 million. This means it's no longer the worst selling in the series

But glad it's still selling, it was a good game.
e-p-ayeaH  +   484d ago
Resident Evil games are all good games in their own way they just need that horror feel in future games and less linearity like Revelations that game is exacly how the franchise should keep aimming for.

Still waiting for RE6 on PSPlus!!
VegasDawg  +   484d ago
This is horrible news, it's only going to compel them to put out more crap. The best one Revelations sold the least. Damn casuals ruining the market.

No mention of street fighter? Last resident evil game I played was code Veronica on the dreamcast. I remember a time when capcom were the top dogs in the industry...I wish they would revisit their classic library.
Vantage  +   484d ago
Resident Evil 5 had a perfect setting and perfect situations for some really good survival horror.

Too bad that element was smothered by having an AI partner forced on you. Some of the action-y things didn't help either.

There's a special place in Hell for people who thought Resident Evil 5 was racist.
