Resident Evil: Revelations- Critically Acclaimed Disaster?

Chris Buffa (Modojo): A great review does not guarantee commercial success. It's more of a blessing, really, a heartfelt plea directed at the reader. We loved this game, and so will you.

With this in mind, we expect great things from Capcom's Resident Evil: Revelations, a brand new entry in the survival horror franchise, slated to arrive on 3DS January 27 in Europe, followed by a February 7 U.S. debut.

I had never heard of the two M-rated games mentioned in the article.

Why no M-rated games? Probably because it immediately narrows your target audience and it isn't NEEDED for it to be fun. So, it doesn't help you from a business perspective and it doesn't improve the player experience. So why bother?

Another way to look at this is that DS sold 149 million units DESPITE their being no M rated games. They didn't need it. And they don't need it now.

I'm not a 17 year old anymore. I don't need to see boobies and blood in order to have fun. If anything, they just cheapen/de-class my experience.

Nobody buys Resident Evil games because of the gore. They buy it for the SUSPENSE. Perhaps one could argue that gruesome death heightens the suspense, but it was breaking glass and flying undead dogs that made the original special. Notice that RE 4 and 5 remove a lot of the suspense and keep the gore, and are generally considered the worst of the series.
