Will Resident Evil 6 Satisfy Classic Fans? ( - Traci B.

I can’t wait to see what kind of flak I’m going to get for this one. My apologies to those of you who enjoy every single game in the series.
Moving on from that… if you know anything about me, then you know I’m a huge fan of Resident Evil. I’ve been deeply entwined in its story—I sort of feel like I’d offend someone if I referred to it as lore—for nearly fifteen years, since I was about eight. I grew up on this new survival horror genre, thoroughly engaged in the canon stories up to and including Code Veronica X.

If RE6 captures that RE4, at the very least RE3, vibe, then there's a big chance it will win back lost fans. I for one didn't like RE5 that much, having a forced co-op and all. That said, I believe the thing that I didn't like the most in RE5 was that it was too point-A-to-point-B. Sure it gave you a map where you can run around in, but that star at the end of each stretch for a checkpoint killed it for me.

Agreed. I just don't know. From what they showed and Capcom's track record lately, I don't have my hopes too high.

Some people might not like this about the RE series but i liked where their we're no checkpoints or instructions of what to do next. It made the game feel longer trying to figure out where to get certain items for certain puzzles like in RE:CVX.

Exactly, the game forced you to think! I mean even the intro of the original game said, "Be smart! Fighting foes isn't the only way to survive this horror." Tough enemies coupled with the sparse ammo and limited saves promoted this concept. Oh the irony.......

I too missed the "open-worldness" of past horrors instead of funneling the playscape through a straightaway with cutscenes.

Didn't zombies with guns answer that question?

I'd like the person who negged you to have the balls and say why. As if the shotgun toting zombie doesn't have everyone worried?

D3mons0ul2259d ago

No, but then again...can anything?

Reborn2259d ago (Edited 2259d ago )

Highly doubtful.

Classic fans.. want exactly that. What was in the older versions back. Sadly, RES6 doesn't seem to do that.

I just want a a Resident Evil game like the older ones, just a normal type of Zombie and not anything fancy like wielding weapons.
I just want the horror that made Resident Evil one of the best games ever.
