...When Dead Space came out, it could've been better because of so and so. Now RE5 could've learned so and so from Dead Space?! It's like no game is ever good enough. From now on, I'm boycotting all gaming media.

It's because no game is perfect. When you have so many great ideas in so many different games (that are similar in genre), it's hard not to wonder what would happen if games took the best elements from each other and worked their way into the fabrics of the gameplay. It's not that the individual games are broken or not great in their own right, it just begs the question of what COULD happen if all the good parts filtered out the bad parts.

If they could learn anything, it's the controls. Dead Space's control scheme PWNS RE5.
