Resident Evil 6 will still be a horror game; new types of horror experience will be introduced

DSOGaming writes: "Resident Evil started as a horror game, but somewhere along the line it got closer to an action shooter. And with the upcoming release of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, gamers started to think that the Capcom they knew was dead. Well, fear not zombie-fans as Resident Evil 6 will still be a horror game, although it will also include some new types of horror experience."

No it won't be

The trailer they have showed off shows tiny amounts of horror, I think the only time we'll get horror in RE6 will be with Leons story.

If they say it's horror then they would of done the trailer in a way to show us this.....but they didn't, they decided to go all out like a Michael Bay movie to impress the COD crowd.

Why is it that Capcom think were stupid to buy into the BS that comes out of their mouths.

"People are afraid of different things, and with RE6 we want to provide a multitude of different horror experiences for everyone.”"

Were not afraid, we know you guys can't do it, look what happened with RE5, yet people spoke out about the problems with it and instead of working on them you've took them and made them a bigger part of RE6

"As you were referring to, horror is that “one moment of absolute terror” where the player feels vulnerable. However we don’t feel that true horror is confined to just what is on the screen. The story, scale, environment, and even relationships between the characters all play a part in creating a true horror experience.”

Sorry but as RE5 showed us having characters and story involved around the gameplay ruins the horror. I mean don't ge me started on the god awful AI/co-op.....yeah I know some people say "Oh me and my friend had a blast", yeah thats with your friend, but for a horror game like RE it's not really supposed to be shared with anyone, your supposed to be their alone, in a dark silent hallway with only two shells left of your shotgun ready to get the crap scared out of you.

Yeah, you know, like that feeling of abject terror you get when there's 15 slow moving zombies in front of you and all you have is an assault rifle, a shotgun, a pistol, grenades and 3 other people helping you with similar weapons. I sh*t my pants just thinking about it.

As far as I'm concerned, Amnesia: Dark Descent will be the only horror game ever made.

LOL, none of the Resident Evil games have been horror games. They are all just a laugh, at least the last one let me play through it co-op with a friend, which is always a nice touch.

Honesty is for the most part less profitable than dishonesty.

Capcom knows that.
