What Happened To The Dead Rising Series?

Over the last week, Jake has been going back to the Dead Rising 2 Off The Record remaster and has been an absolute blast. When he was 15 he first got his Xbox 360 and Dead Rising with it, it was unlike any other experience. It made him wonder though, what happened to the Dead Rising series.

Interesting timing. This retrospective was released just a few days ago:

Ah no, I just felt like writing it as I started playing the game again and wanted to offer up my opinions 😁

I was thinking the same thing when I saw the title.

Easy answer to the article, it got watered down to just another zombie game.

The original was a great game, everything was timed, you had to save people and more often than not you wouldn't be able to save everyone. That aspect got watered down for the second so it wasn't a strict, then I think it got removed totally for the third and fourth sequels.

Basically it just became like every other zombie game, you could craft weapons (some crazy ones) but it just became generic.

Complacency and new teams who didn't understand what made the series special.

Seems like there was just a ton of infighting aswell and so many more issues. Honestly sadly Dead Rising 5 before it was cancelled sounded nothing like dead rising, nothing learnt from. Dr4 at all.

DR4 should have not been made anyways. DR3 closed everything nicely.

They're a solid channel. I always click on their vids, unless it's a series/game I simply have no interest in.

They took away the depth and charm of the game that made it fun and interesting, and made it into a generic zombie killing game.

This was the series the got me to buy an Xbox 360. The first one was so good. It still had horror elements. As it went on it became kind of a parody. Never forget getting Zombie Genecider achievement and then restarting the game to get the Mega Buster. That thing was monstrous against enemies.

But you never know it might be RISING again someday .
