Feeling Skeptical About Resident Evil 6? Me Too.

Why I'm not sure Resident Evil 6 will be a good game. (Culture, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

I agree with you, but please don't be afraid to use more compound sentences in your articles.

The RE6 trailer was fantastic, movement to action to attention to detail looks like amazing roller coaster ride. The new graphics look pretty darn amazing too.

As for butt hurt people that saying RE lost its horror touch it has since RE4...RE4 Revolutinised the genre and made it into somthing new. I played all of them and yes RE 1-3 were great. But this new direction they took lost its horror and suspense elements in favour of a more action orientated game. Which in return will get more people interested and more sales. Looking at market today where call of duty makes the most money we can see people will prefer a action game.

I would prefer horror elements too as remembering RE and what it is now is somthing really different. But hey if its a good game then willing to play it. Even though its nothing like olden games.

Looking at 3DS RE revelations looking great too. We will just have to wait and see if it is a great game the trailer is great.

"Revolutinised the genre and made it into somthing new"

"But this new direction they took lost its horror and suspense elements in favour of a more action orientated game"

And you DON'T see a contradiction in there? They didn't make survival horror into "something new", they just turned Resident Evil into an action series. Simple as that. So RE4 didn't revolutionize survival horror, it really only helped with the evolution of third person shooting mechanics. That, and QTEs (shudder).

"Which in return will get more people interested and more sales. Looking at market today where call of duty makes the most money we can see people will prefer a action game. "

That magical, really, but WHY does any of THAT matter to YOU? Are you a shareholder at Capcom? Why are you concerned about their profits? If they have to stop churning out good games in order to make profit, then f**k that. That's not good for consumers OR the market, it's only good for Capcom. What's the point in giving them money only to have them continue to disappoint everybody?

Nobody is "butthurt" (that is also a very old and juvenile saying that needs to die), everyone is just gob-smacked by the blatant disregard for the wants and needs of their actual fans in favour of potentially attracting a fan base who notoriously don't want to play anything without "super hardcore real-life soldiers and war stuff," least of all anything with sci-fi/fantasy elements ("nerd stuff").

They're out of touch. That's it in a nut shell. They've yet to produce a single gem this generation (with the possible exception of SF4), with the quality bar sliding more and more with every release. Why should I be excited for the next flop?

Einstein defined insanity as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." There's a great deal of wisdom in that.

"Revolutinised the genre and made it into somthing new" -> Late to the party, that was RE4 like 8 years ago lol


Don't feel skeptical about RE6, the franchise changed with RE4 and keep doing it with games after that one, everyone should get used to this change

I really think this will be one of the best games of 2012.
This excites me more than The Last Of Us
CGI-Quality  +   1479d ago
Why even mention The Last Of Us? Not confirmed for 2012, nor is it survival horror (or anything like RE6 will be, for that matter). XD

OT: I agree with his sentiments, although the way the article is written, it makes the idea seemed a bit jumbled. Nevertheless, I'm not a fan of this action-oriented era of Resident Evil we are in now, but as a fan of the series, I can't turn my back on it! Roll on Nov 20!

Personally, I think its gonna be amazing.

Edit: Yeah the article looks like it was wrote by a twelve year old for an essay competition... short and sweet sentences.

You only have to play Resident Evil Revelations to see that Capcom is back on track with the franchise. Resi 6 is going to be fantastic!
Coolmanrico  +   1479d ago
I'm not, Resident Evil 6 looks like it going to be a great game. They sold me with the first trailer.

Rather or not it going to be the Resident Evil fans want is yet to be seen. But Leon is in and fans seem to think every game he is in is gold. (Even though I disagree. RE4 suffered all the same problem that RE5 had with the exception of Co-op yet it a classic and 5 the worst of the series.)

Totally agree. RE4 was nothing like RE1-3. RE4 and 5 are very similar yet RE5 is treated like it is the red headed stepchild of the franchise while RE4 gets lots of praise. I think those hailing 4 as being different from 5 need to go back and replay it as it is almost the same game.

Capcom took an action direction with Resi 4. It didn't begin with Resi 5.
D3mons0ul  +   1479d ago
No, it just began to suck with RE5.

4 was a good game, stop hating
Coolmanrico  +   1479d ago
RE4 began to change everything about Resident Evil and RE5 just picked up where 4 left off.

RE5 is a good game too, so I can tell you to stop hating as well.
Angrymorgan  +   1479d ago
I want the original scare factor back, I miss classic resi games, however I can understand why Capcom changed all that because fixed camera angles and slow movement wouldnt appeal to the masses today.

I just hope they have a few Tight, dark interiors in it to give some good scares.
StanSmith  +   1479d ago
You must try Resident Evil:Revelations on 3DS. I downloaded the demo just yesterday and it has the scare factor as well as plenty of tight dark interiors.
Angrymorgan  +   1479d ago
Thanks for the recommendation :) +

I'm not worried nor skeptical; the again, I was never a fan of the old school pre-RE4 games, so I'm not exactly a reference. To me, RE5 was a fantastic local- co-op game; and by the looks of it, RE6 looks even better.

what crap????!!!!

i was sold by the trailer the moment i saw Leon & Chris...
totally awesome!! Thanks Capcom.
MasterD919  +   1479d ago
There are three original Resident Evil games coming out this year with RE6 being the biggest by far...Capcom has the largest staff yet just for this game.

I am actually pretty excited for this game...a new Raccoon City and 3 separate storylines. Zombie-focused again too. Who knows...Maybe Capcom will actually impress us.
Hozi  +   1479d ago
Never judge a book by it's cover. I laugh when I see so many negative comments about this game. Capcom is really doing things diff. for this game, they've got their biggest team working on this too.
D3mons0ul  +   1479d ago
You think that matters to a bunch of nostalgia fiends who just want to relive RE1-3 again?

The fact that there are ALREADY so many negative comments and articles over one trailer makes me sick and honestly causes me to look down on the gaming community as a whole.

Not just the RE fanbase either.

There are WAY too many detractors of well, just about everything. And some hate is justified (Capcom's actions up until this point, DMC going to NT, NT not respecting the source material at all, even insulting Dante as a character and the old school fans) but on the other side of the spectrum, the unjustified hate, bickering, whining, complaining and overall nonsense just outweighs any legit concerns.
