Josh, Matt, Allan and Adnan from ToasterChimp discuss whether or not the Resident Evil franchise is in serious need of a reboot.
Only if it's to go back to survival horror or it's pointless. Do the right thing Capcom give us Resident Evil back.
The horror of them reimagining RE as an action game just crossed my mind... *I mean the original RE of course.
Unfortunately the crappy recent action games that they now release tend to sell more than the proper Resident Evils. Such a sad world we live in.
I font care if its a reboot, as long as the game is good n scary. Legitimately scary, not "the tank controls make it scary" scary.
Gawd yes. The story has become a convoluted mess.
Not really. We just need more survival horror RE games.
Yeah I think the majority of fans will say it does. It hasn't been survival horror since 4 came out. Even that was just skirting the lines. But it was good. The story now is so convoluted. And the gameplay is just generic third person shooter. Where are the puzzles, riddles and genuine tension?? I've played these games since 2 first came out. I miss true Resident Evil games. Bring back the mansion, raccoon city and a simpler storyline that somewhat makes sence.
It got a great reboot already. They only have to continue it now with Resident Evil 2. And stop making the mistakes they started with RE4.
NO that REmake HD was not a reboot....And NO they aren't going to go back to that exclusively...Resident Evil didn't sell particularly well Especially not Zero through Code Veronica.... The HIGHEST selling entries were RE5 at around 8 million and RE6 around 6 million...The ONLY game that broke 1 million sold was RE2 and it barely broke 1 million
Just make good RE games without giant budgets, so they don't have to sell millions of pieces..
@deadpoolio316 Every Classic RE Broke 1 Millions Sold. http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/... @Hoffmann So you want capcom don't care profit ? Revelations 2 didn't have giant budget but still want a least 1 millions sold.
Please reboot it. I want fresh ideas fresh everything.
Capcom needs a reboot before anything else.
Reboots are tricky, but if they intend going to the survival horror roots then yes.
A reboot isn't necessary, just REmake the games and go from there.....If the Resident Evil Remake isn't enough proof then I don't know what is, if Capcom does this RE2 like they did the RE Remake they're gonna make millions and sell plenty copies.
REmake HD doesn't prove a damn thing..It only sold around a million.....And people bought it because it had only been on a Nintendo platform for 12 years RE5 has sold 8 million and RE6 sold around 6 million, so if anything they get the idea that they need to stick with the with the way those games went.... There is literally below zero chance they will ever go back to garbage tank controls(due to hardware limitations), garbage static camera(due to hardware limitation) and pre-rendered backgrounds(due to hardware limitations) They will be like RE4-RE6 till the end of time
Capcom has completely lost their way across the board (as a company, not just RE) . I wouldn't have faith in them to reboot it well. They've been saying they were 'taking it back to its roots' for pretty much every game since just after RE4. I'm sure their reboot would be another failed iteration of 'going back to its roots'
Continuity is what separates Resident Evil from Silent Hill. They just need to find a new plot point
Revelations 2 was shockingly bad. It's only saving grace was Raid mode.
LOL. It looks like Capcom did Nintendo fans a favor. Judging by the reviews, RE:R1 was the better game.
Or just start a new horror IP?
To be honest I count Resi 1 and 0 as a reboot.
Honestly, I think they should let sleepeing dogs lie. Fans wouldn't be happy with anything they did with a reboot and the main series has gone down the toilet and they have made their intentions on what they want for the series is...so a reboot would be more of that but fresh start for the series. I'm happy letting RE be a great childhood memory.
I think it would be a good idea to reboot or start fresh in some way. Maybe not a full on reboot, but just go back to the original gameplay in some ways. Maybe keep the controls most RE games have now, and make it more of a survival horror game once again. That'd be great imo.
Reboot - Maybe Survivor Horror Gameplay - i don't think so (posible make like revelations)
