For years, Resident Evil has been known as one of the most thrilling action-adventure franchises around. It was the series that successfully popularized the survival horror sub-genre, and it has garnered a loyal following throughout the years.
I would like it to be, I loved RE4 though, even without the scary
But as far as the original versions go, RE: Nemesis is my favorite. So many tense moments in that game! The GameCube version of the first Resident Evil was a great game, too. I can't forget about that one!
re5 was just a mindless shooter, and people actually like that, i dont think capcom is gonna change the playstyle of the serie now
GIMME the gamecuebe re1 remake in HD that's scary enough for me
This is why I am actually pretty excited to play Silent Hill Downpour. The game looks scary and still plays like a classic survival horror game. Resident Evil is just turning into Gears of Zombies.
Agreed. I purchased RE5 during Steam sale and didn't even want to play anymore after 5 minutes. Give me back RE how it was on the PS1
Turn off the lights then. No seriously i get it thoe the first was always the scarest for me psx alone in a room late evening no lights silents then leechers come at you or dogs threw a window. or you hear the eeeerrrrr zombies making you shitting yourself dont want to open a door not knowing whats there.
Well it won't be anytime soon. Personally i got more hope for Silent Hill: Downpour.
Even Silent Hill Homecoming was ten times the Horror Survival game that RE5 wishes it was, I bet downpour would be good, besides did you see the devs? They look creepy as hell themselves
I agree. Though it also needs to bring back the lack of ammo and tension that made RE4 (On the first run ever) so great, and what made Dead Space 2 so wonderful as well.
Revelations might not be quite scary yet from what I've seen but I'd definitely say it's an exciting in a "holy sh*t!" way.
I enjoyed playing playing RE5 co-op with my buddy, but it wasn't scary at all, just fun. Probably because we don't have access to Gears ect. Looking forward to Silent Hill: Downpour.
The whole damn survival-horror genre needs to be scary again, not just Resident Evil! Seriously the genre is dying out this generation.
Put aside the fact that RE5 was not scary for a minute, it was still a decent game. Add in Lost in Nightmares (which is scary enough for a RE game and proves Capcom can still do traditional RE when they want) and Desperate Measures/Mercs. And you have a LOT of game for your money if you buy the Gold edition. I'm not defending the game it should have been scarier and better overall. But people get hung up on the fact it wasn't scary and forget it was a good game. Play it with a friend and you will have fun.
Agreed. RE5 wasn't really an RE game but it was still a great co-op experience if you have a friend to play it with and the Lost Nightmares was a good throw-back to the better RE days.
I hated the demo way back when but decided to get gold edition as I enjoyed playing KZ3 so much with Move I wanted to try RE5 with it. Bloody love the game....I was so wrong about the demo at least with Move I was....not so scary but a very well put together game no the less..
lol gotta love this site for the disagrees on how I feel about a game..lol
I could only play RE5 for 10 mins before I got too scared. Couldn't complete it. Same with RE4. We need less scary games. Anything scarier than Crysis is too scary, Crysis was my limit.
1000%, all this 'babysitting' Ashley and sheba drove me insane.
I just find it daft the way in the new resi you can use zombies as meat shields. If anything you'd want your arms and body fucking FAR away from the zombies mouth. Guess not in Gears of Evil.
this generation had zero scary games. just mindless bullshit. Even splinter cell could be kinda scary trying to not get spotted but now its an action game, just like RE5.
demon souls is much more scary than re5 lol
Agreed part I and II after that I stopped playing they got cheesy lame
I think dead space is the closest to anything survival horror this generation, hell even the ipod dead space is scarier than anything ive played on consoles this generation
