Dear Capcom

VG Watchdog Writes:

"Dear Capcom,
Recently, you've ignored your customers and fanbase. You've given us a "censored" Resident Evil 5 because of stupid media response (If you are unsure of what I am referring too, serach for resident evil 5 and racist in Google, it'll probably come up), you've shown us what fun the game could be but you've also forgotten a pretty big thing. Resident Evil is supposed to be the king of Zombie Killing games and you've gotten fat and lazy with it's title. Other games, Call of Duty: World at War and Left 4 Dead in particular, are trying to infringing upon the title and while they haven't topped you, they are starting the process to taking you out." (Culture, PS3, Resident Evil 5, Xbox 360)

The RE5 demo scared me... tank controls = not fun in 2009

AT first i wasn't looking even on buying the game but after the demo i did like it, liked the co-op and was fun. Controls didn't really bothered me, liked them really.

Theyre selling a tried and tested formula, they wont change it if people will pay for it.

Dear Capcom ignore the babies please
I am a huge Capcom mark with over 40 capcom games in my house. Please do not listen to all of the babies crying over spilled milk. The capcom fanbase (which is HUGE) will by this regardless.

Oh and RE5 rocks.

whats funny for saying a capcom game is good you got disagrees, im a long time fan of Resident Evils. Resident evil 5 being racist is absurd, if the game was based in Japan or China and your killing japanese/chinese zombies with Chris Redfield, thats not racist, but the 2nd you place a game in Africa with black people, its racist, im sry but its 2009, not 1809. Taken from wiki "A 1705 Virginia law stated slavery would apply to those peoples from nations that were not Christian." That was slavery, slavery of anyone who was non christian, so that means everybody else, so why was Resident Evil 4 not racist. People have got to grow up, and I'm 100% positive the people making a big deal about this are white, cause black people have more reasoning than this load of crap.

I think it’s because you lack emphatic ability. Imagine this, I’ll lead you through it step by step, maybe then you’ll be able to understand why some people might regard this game as plain out racist, or consider it to reinforce already existing and VERY REAL racial structures present in Africa.

1. Imagine you are black, not very hard, huh?
2. Remember colonialism, they did teach you about that in school, right?
3. Remember Apartheid, and other systems like it, which are still very much present in Africa in the informal and to some extent formal sociopolitical and economical structures.
4. Remember the incredible amount of violence exerted by white people on black people during the last centuries.
5. Remember slavery. What group of people has been overwhelmingly most affected by slavery in negative terms?
6. Consider the VAST differences in income and quality of life (in material terms…) between those who are labeled white, and those who are labeled black. Pretty huge, don’t you think?
7. Look at the systematic discrimination of black people on the labour market present worldwide, if you dispute this fact, please look into the astonishing amount of research conducted in this area which validates that fact. Fact.
8. Keep in mind the that discrimination of black people at the hands of white people is not exclusive to the labour market, but that it penetrates every single layer of society, effectively eliminating the possibilities of most black people to reach positions of authority and wealth.

9. NOW, think of a white man shooting black people in Africa.

If you don’t understand now how a game, where a white man, a military or some spec ops guy is shooting black people, can be considered racist… Well, I don’t know what to say. I actually don't think it is racist, I don't think it was Capcoms intention to make a racist game, but I fully understand how some people could see it as such.

Left 4 Dead has along way before it will every be even close to RE. Im sorry gameplay may be great but graphically it is crap. RE manages to have high graphics quality and they keep the gameplay pretty well in tact. They really don't care if a small % of people don't buy it as long as the other 6 million do.

I love when I get disagrees without a comment just shows me I am doing something right. If you disagree at least voice your prospective on the issue.
jadenkorri  +   2217d ago
your replying to yourself, doesn't that say enough...

FYI - i did not disagree or agree with your statements.
Kushan  +   2217d ago
From my experience, many "fans" tend to do more harm than good. RE5 is the sequel to RE4. RE4 was one of the best games of the last generation, I see no need to change the formula. Hell, I actually like the tank controls, they keep the pace of the game at what it should be.

i knew they stopped listening to customers when they stopped supporting the marvel vs. capcom series..
SpikeSpiegel  +   2217d ago
Capcom cant do Marvel versus anymore..
They lost the right to use the Marvel license.
Claudinho69  +   2217d ago
they stopped supporting way before they lost their rights

When did gamers become entitled to tell developers how to design and "fix" their games? Am I sending open letters to Stephen King telling him how to adjust his preview chapter for his next book to make it more pleasing to his readers?

This guy likes horde mode... ok. Maybe his neighbor doesn't. You will never play a game that is 100% to your liking. If enough people don't like it, sales will reflect that and publishers/developers will adjust. A poorly written open letter isn't going to do it.

Furthermore, this site is going from News 4 Gamers to Blogs 4 Gamers. I'm just waiting for forum postings to start getting their own headlines because most of these blog posts are just forum rants copied and pasted into a blog site.

do yourself a favor and rent RE5...save urself 50 bucks
Darkfocus  +   2217d ago
the only thing i don't like is that they censored the game (camera turning away for a second when you get chainsawed etc.)
SaiyanFury  +   2217d ago
Black zombies? Oh dear God!! More political correctness BS being slung by an overly sensitive person. It's a game not hate speech, get over yourself. This game is being developed by a Japanese developer, not some group of swastika-sporting KKK members. Sheesh...
VampHuntD  +   2217d ago
Did you even read the article? Cause it agrees with you on that point. There was no sense in taking that out or adding white zombies just to appease some stupid population that doesn't understand where the game is set.
SpikeSpiegel  +   2217d ago
I dont understand...
RE5 sucks because there isn't a horde mode? Isnt the gameplay of the series like a Horde mode itself? You are shooting wave after wave of zombies/monsters/etc after all.
Sleebs  +   2217d ago
Resident Evil is the king of zombie killing? That's the first time I ever heard it. Last I recall, Resident Evil was about biohazards, not zombies. True, for its time, it was the big zombie game but that's not what it was about. Reason you don't have zombies as the base enemy anymore is that it's like de-volving the advancement of the virus. RE5 is just fine.

I love Capcom and I would prefer them to do things their own way.
SEAN1617  +   2216d ago
I will say that i have not played part five, in fact no one has really played 5, but i will say ever since part four there was a bit of a bad taste in my mouth the game itself was great very fresh yet it was not RE to me it might of well been called Action Game 4. Sure Leon was there and so was Ada, and even Wesker, but they all seemed out of place. I wish RE4 stayed to it original design as seen here. http://www.gametrailers.com...

Yup. Resi has stopped being cool when they decided to please everyone.
