      How come capcom never made another fixed camera RE, seems like it would not be that expensive and bring in the nostalgia crowd. Imagine 4k cg backgrounds, it would look great.

      It was never a big seller and and indies fill the metroidvania niche now.

      That's such a dumb fuck thing to say. DMC 1 still exists and you can still play it. People dislike SotN and RE4 because it changed the trajectory of their respective series, potential games made using the old formula are scrapped for the new formula. I think Matthew Matosis once said "I'm not upset that SotN exists, I'm upset Rondo of Blood 2 doesn't exist."
      Your opinion is just stupid, Instead of bemoaning a shift in trajectory, you think there should have been zero trajectory at all? If you think it should've just ended after one, then why do you give a shit? Just keep playing one and don't bother with the rest you dumb fuck, what are you complaining about?

        what he meant is that DMC 1 ruined the franchise cause DMC 3 did a switch instead of being a bad game like 1 & 2 it was a good instead.. franchise betrayal if you ask me

        I can't take "your" opinion seriously.
        Again, DMC3 ruined the series. It ruined the characters, the overall focus of the series and forgot about everything that made DMC1 so special.

          Quoting someone as an example is different from an opinion.
          >Again, DMC3 ruined the series.
          But you said it should have ended after 1, why do you care that they kept making more? If your problem is that the series didn't end, I think you should blame DMC 2 for that you fucking idiot.
          My point is that when people say a game ruined a series, it's usually because it changed that series' trajectory. You're just being an idiot and saying games you don't like shouldn't exist for no reason.

    RE4 is a masterclass in gaming design, it might not have same horror aspects as the games before it but its a very important game in gaming. Mikami is a genius for creating this new over the shoulder view that influenced all 3rd person games to this day, before it there wasn't such a thing.

      Over the shoulder camera when using weapons? Mission Impossible, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Splinter Cell did that years before.
      Laser sight aiming for weapons? Operation Winback and Conker's Bad Fur Day did that before RE. Even Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow had laser sight aiming for some weapons.
      Quick Time Events? Shenmue did those first.
      Unless there's something I've missed. A less obvious mechanical innovation.

    Casualized garbage. I would say it started with BB but that was meant to be a seperate thing but its influence on Souls has been nothing but for the worse.

      Bloodborne is probably the only good souls game, are you mentally retarded?

        Bloodborne is not a Souls game and never should have been considered one, trying to cram BB gameplay into an actual Souls game is half the reason DS3 is such shit.

        Actually Bloodborne is a bad souls game, it's good for it's own thing, that's why ds3 is a bad souls game cause it tried to be a bloodborne in the souls formula

        And there's a reason why it was called Bloodborne and not Dark Souls, retard. Then DaSIII came along and tried to be BB 1.5

      Casualized? Souls 2 is significantly easier than 3, dumb dumb.

      I like BB and DaS3 more than DaS1/2. DeS reigns supreme though.

      i think he means they ruined their series' because they were so good that any following games would be a disappointment
      Like how people say dark souls ruined games for them (because everything else feels shitty in comparison)

    Re 5 and 6 ruined the series. The re2 female and re3 demakes are totally failures regardless of their steam ratings or sales numbers. These games are trash. Re7 is boring just like the demakes. I'm not even giving 8 a chance because of how bad 5,6,7 and the demakes were.

    Re is a dead series.

    Nah what ruined castlevania is the shovelware cringe nu weeb series on the ds: dawn of sorrow, portrait of ruin and order of ecclesia. What is making new re unplayable is the fact they are using fpp.

    Both sotn and re4 are objectively the best games of their series and by far

      FE7 prepared the field and New Mystery planted the seeds, awakening is the natural conclusion of the work that those two games did.

      SotN is too easy (especially once you get the bat) and like a third of RE4 is "that part". Honestly, I'd dock it a point just for the Krauser QTE sequence and fuck apologists of that part.

    Castlevania started to become shit since DS releases and the last nail on the coffin was Kojima ruinning the series with Lord of Shadows.
    RE 4 is shit, Mercenaries is a good mode tho, until today I can't understand why people love RE4, good thing is that RE8 is good in comparison.

      RE4 is a completely different style of game that sets aside the exploration and puzzle emphasis of the earlier entries for more setpiece-oriented corridor shooter bits. As it turns out, the latter is more normalfag friendly.
