Resident Evil 6 is 'dramatic horror' not 'survival horror'

IncGamers: "...a blend of action and survival horror – something we like to call dramatic horror," says game's producer. (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

Oh is this the part where we just make up genres for games, kind of like music and how something simple like Techno has about 78 sub genres. Meeh!

Why don't we go with Survival Drama? Or Drama Horror Survival? Maybe Horror Survival? Seriously, meeeeh.

The thing about this is it confirms to fans that RE won't be going back to its roots.

What the hell is "dramatic horror" does it make you cry?

More QTEs and cut scenes perhaps. Action usually means shooting, punching or slicing stuff. Dramatic usually means we're spend more time watching amazing things unfold, as opposed to doing them like in a normal action or survival game. Horror means watching those long cut scenes again and again if we fail to press the proper QTE buttons at the correct nano second.

Then you cry.

(Leon slays zombie president)
Leon: "Alas, woe! By my profane hand I hath slain mine own king! What for shall become of us?"
(ghost of Wesker appears to Leon)
Ghots: "Leon.... LEEEEOOOOONNNNN.... Wouldst the fates not bequeath such a title upon thy self? Are not you, Leon, champion of RCPD, worthy of such honour?"
Banquo: "Leon, why do you start and seem to fear things that do sound so fair?"
Hamlet: "To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer --"

End Act 1


This sh*t writes itself, I can see why Capcom are so keen on it :p

If you want survival+dramatic just play the game on hard mode. :)

There goes tryin to survive. That's the only way to scare people. The threat of death. This tells me that its a zombie action game with horror elements (likely gore and pop ups) and jar acted drama...as an action game ok. But this is RE and fans won't take that approach well.

Meh. To hell with Capcom. They've clearly lost the plot and it looks like they're trying to emulate those crappy paul ws anderson movies. Maybe if we want RE games to be good again, everyone should avoid watching that crap.

I'm not picking up street fighter x tekken either as they'll just release another one 6 months later.

And the way they handle and price DLC is bloody ridiculous.

Hamming it up isn't dramatic. If that were the case, CSI: Miami would be the greatest drama to have graced the small screen.

And there's no horror, either. The game is horror themed, but it is not a "horror" game. None of it is horrifying or scary, and it never has been. Castlevania was horror themed, and the only scary part about Castlevania was how scarily angry it could make the player.

Is that what we're going for, Capcom? Are you trying to make Resident Evil fans scarily angry?

"The horror is the PLAYER! MIND BLOW!"

it's just a fancy term for "there's a time limit and our heroes are trying to stop the virus that will destroy the world before it's too late, there will be alot of betrayal and people dying"

i call decent...

its not horror, period.

Melodramatic Horror would be the correct term.
