Resident Evil Games That Still Deserve A Remake More Than RE4

There are plenty of Resident Evil games ripe with remake potential that Capcom is seemingly leaving on the table by choosing to focus on RE4.

I will never understand why Code Veronica has not received a Remake (Darkside Chronicles doesn’t count). Hot take here, but it’s my favorite of the games. First game where Wesker became a bamf and I always liked the music and enemy/boss variety.

Code Veronica deserved to be next in line for a remake, why people still after all these years and different platforms feel they need a RE4 remake is beyond me.

its not the people, its Capcom's greedy ass that have no appreciation for their past or their classics
the demand was high for CVX Remake even Capcom knows it

It's all about the sales and popularity bro! That's what Capcom and any other company for that matter, is going by for potential remakes.

I'd love a shadows of the damned remake, but that's never gonna happen.

Code Veronica would bring in some serious cash for Capcom.

Resident Evil 1996 - 2023 - A Look at some Resident Evil games and how the visuals improved

CG writes: In this video we take a look at the original 1996 release of Capcom’s Resident Evil on the PSOne, then go through most of the more popular games in the long-running series. You can see the full list below in chronological order of release (or thereabouts). Sure, there are some notable omissions such as Resident Evil Chronicles and Resident Evil Outbreak 1 & 2 etc. but the video does a great job of highlighting how the game’s visuals progressed over 25 years. The last game in the video showcases the Resident Evil 4 remake which released earlier this year.

Quite amazing how in late 90s those pre-rendered static backgrounds were like the bees knees. I am wondering what a game would look like today if it used the same pre-rendered backgrounds. Are we looking at photo-realistic environments or is there no need when you have games like UNRECORD using UE5?

I would say no need when you consider games like Unrecord.

Not just the visuals. But the immersion since 3 of them are in VR

Code Veronica Should be the Next Resident Evil to Get the Remake Treatment

As an oft-overlooked game in the franchise canon, Resident Evil: Code Veronica deserves the remake treatment over Resident Evil 5

If I have to decide between Code Veronica and RE5, then I go with Code Veronica Remake.

RE5 and 6 were more action oriented than survival horror.

robtion180d ago

Resident Evil 5 was an amazing game and pretty similar to RE4 in terms of its horror/action formula. It just couldn't top RE4 which was a standout game. Regression to the mean, y'know.

I agree the less said about RE6 the better though.

gleepot180d ago

I really don't think we will have to decide. It's clear these games are a huge success critically and commercially. They will remake CV, zero, 1, 5, and 6.

MADGameR180d ago

100% agreed, RE Code Veronica should be the next remake. I expect CAPCOM to bring out RE9 first though.


Come On Capcom, Please Give Us Code Veronica Next

One of Capcom’s most beloved video game franchises, Resident Evil, has finally received its next installment in the form of the fantastic Resident Evil 4 Remake. However, fans of the series couldn’t help but notice that this same courtesy was sadly not extended to Code: Veronica, the next entry after Resident Evil 3 and a crucial addition to the overall franchise. So, let’s take a look at why this great game deserves to get the same amazing treatment that Resident Evil 2, 3, and 4 got.

I would have much preferred this over RE4. my parents got me a dream cast specifically for this game, even as a eleven year old(yes I started playing RE games at the age 7 my parents let me watch and play R rated movies and games) I declared it to be one of the best RE games. Right behind RE2.

I always felt that 3 was not nearly as good as 1 2 and Veronica. Even at the age of 10 years old I remember me and my friend debating over RE3 to me it has always felt like re 2.5.

RE code Veronica, to me is the last true RE game.
While I do like the beginning of RE4 and remember waking up before school after playing all night to finish it. I felt that it kinda goes off the rails and gets way to action focused half way in. Loses the creepy vibe it had in the beginning and yeah just goes to being non horror in a lot of aspects.

If Capcom skips this entry I will be truly disappointed, for some reason a lot of fans didn’t play or don’t care about this game.. to me it’s the Second best RE game they ever made.

Venoxn4g187d ago

What about RE:make and RE zero? I believe these two were great RE (Real games) as well

KwietStorm_BLM187d ago

I've said it a thousand times. It's not surprising that RE4 got a remake, but Code Veronica *needed* it before 4 was released, again. The overarching lore in CV is still unprecedented for the franchise, and they could do a lot to make the game feel modern. Maybe even flesh out the arctic base area.

thesoftware730186d ago

I would love CV: Remake.

But would prefer a remake of 5. I know that is the unpopular consensus, but 5 gameplay with co-op is one of my favorites, especially the Merc mode for replayability.
