I wouldn't call RE5 one either, it's ok though they were both good games.
Biohazard 4 introduced "Los Ganados" NOT zombies! And also: "The Resident Evil zombies had never run before yet they were scary, so why would you suddenly change that?" Stupid Inafune, stupid stupid stupid stupid. They're not zombies and also, ever heard of the "Crimson Zombies" back on the Biohazard Remake on the Gamecube? -End statement
crimson zombies do not run:/ they just walk faster than normal n00b zombies
Inafune is the LAST person that should be criticizing RE 4.
This guy was the ONLY reason Biohazard had the green light. You can love and hate this guy now. -End statement
Dear lord , can't that guy shut up and retire already ?
Yea..I've been hearing a lot of bull crap coming from his mouth recently.
and it's still one of the best games ever.
RE4 and 5 are great games. I had so much fun playing them, especially RE5's co-op.
Dude wrote the guy's name wrong 4x during the article. It's Inafune, not Infaune! This is Journalism 101. C'mon people, at least try! Anyway, as for the subject itself. I agree. I'm a fan of the old school resis over the new ones, and the new ones just do not feel like resis.
well, the author read this before so - you missed one edit in the last sentence of the second paragraph. let me know if you guys are looking for an copy-editor, i work for a sports mag/BA in journalism and wouldn't mind helping.
*sigh* Inafune... I'm going to become a developer JUST so I can show you how to properly make Dead Rising.
When people talk about how they'd fix Dead Rising, it's usually code word for, "Make it easier."
RE4 didn't have zombies? That's why it was good in a stagnating series.
A zombie with a gatling gun...
First RE4 wasn't a reboot Second it was scary and oferred a new direction for the franchise AKA , awesome game Third they weren't zombies.
bbbest gggame eeever
Resident Evil 4 is a FANTASTIC video game. Period. It's NOT a true Resident Evil / Biohazard game. I will argue to the DEATH with ANYONE on that. And I WILL win. Try me if I got the time and energy? I dare you. Second of all, with that being said. It is NOT a zombie game. Resident Evil 5 AT THE VERY LEAST had one type of "Resident Evil-related" zombie, and that was the Licker. And yes, do not argue with me. Lickers ARE zombies according to the history and documents of Resident Evil lore. Can't argue with the facts folks. I can even go as far as to saying that the bodies on the floor that grabbed players in Lost in Nightmares could also be called zombies, if not, what else? With ALL off that being said, I understand perfectly what Inafune is saying. He NEVER, EVER said RE4 was a terrible game in any sense of the word. He is simply saying, what any RE fan with a brain and knowledge of the series should know, is that Resident Evil 4 is a terrible zombie game.... BECAUSE THERE ARE NO FUCKING ZOMBIES, hence the damn 0 he mentions. So chill out people and understand before you reply and insult the man on this matter. I agree with him, it's a horrible Resident Evil-related, zombie game. Which is why so many more people liked the game over past installments, OR future installments (ala Biohazard 5), because every other main series game, except for Biohazard 4, actually follows the main story arc and contains all the series main characters (heroes, villians, and yes, even the monsters. CASE CLOSED.
Well Said, Bubbles +
Fucking THIS. THIS THIS THIS. *THIS* RE4, on it's on, is a good game. But as a zombie game, it's just nothing. It was a new direction in an experiment - an attempt to take the series in a new direction, and as evidenced by the sales of 4 & 5, it was a successful one. Inafune isn't talking shit, he's just stating a fact. People need to get off his fucking dicksack and lighten up.
There are many meanings for the word "zombie": "a person who is or appears to be lifeless, apathetic, or totally lacking in independent judgment; automaton" According to this (extracted from the dictionary) RES4 has zombies. Oh and don't forget about Garrador, Regenerator/ Iron Maiden.
Finally! RE4 sucked as a zombie game AND a survival horror game. bout time someone kept it real and told the truth.
This is what makes a good horror movies: 1st - horror. Obvious. 2nd - human nature. hunger, sex, depression, stress, paranoia are ALL part of that. yes, sex too! it's a need. it's human. and it shows up even more when hope is lost. 3rd - adult themes. i'm not talking about all the people dying, but what are people capable of. do they kill? do they rape? do they survive? (first scene in re2 was the guy who almost killed you in the weapon shop cuz he didn't want to help you - that was good, it was real) i've yet to see a horror game that takes characters through REAL human choices. in that respect, i wish there were better writers in horror games.
I'm hoping it's just a mid-life crisis that he's going through, it could probably go away.
Running zombies are fucking stupid. I wish he'd been this indignant when they put them into Dead Rising 2.
Hey, Inafune, how's that new Devil May Cry game going?
