Resident Evil 7 got a lot right, but now that Capcom has a sturdy base to build off of, they have a chance to make Resident Evil 8 incredible.
RE8IDENT EVIL / 8IOHAZARD
Don't give them any ideas!
They need to go back to a 3rd person perspective, 1st person just isn't resident evil.
The only time I will accept third person in RE is if I can have the static cameras back. OTS ruined RE. RE4 is a classic but is also where the downward spiral started. People say RE7 weren't a RE evil game but for me outside of characters, RE4-RE6 weren't RE games.
First or third person has never actually really defined Resident Evil. For all you know the next Resident Evil is going to have a feature that lets you toggle the camera. So long as they have the same game Play Elements as the previous Resident Evils I actually seriously don't care what perspective it's in. Never did ,never will.
I want fixed cameras of the go back to a TPS view as well. the only things then I really need to satisfy that Resident Evil itch, are interesting puzzles, interesting boss fights, and an open area to explore and re-explore. Resident Evil 7 was great but the last 10% took it in a direction I don't want to see the series go.
