Parasite Eve 2

The best "Resident Evil clone" IMO. I actually like it more than the first game gameplay wise.

          Gameplay > Everything else

            Do you think about the gameplay after you finish a game? Do you consider it? It's only fun in the moment. Obviously, good gameplay is preferable, but it's not something that is going to stick with you. The gameplay only matters when I'm playing the game. Do you replay things a lot? Do you recall how they play? Or when you think about games, do you remember other things, such as writing, atmosphere, and music?

              Bad gameplay with random encounters and poor balancing detracts from those other things
              If you only care about the writing, atmosphere, and music then why even bother playing the game? It would be more convenient just watching it on Youtube(or watching a movie that does all of these things better)

                I never said I only care about those things and don't appreciate you putting words in my mouth. I do care about gameplay. However, a game is not gameplay alone but is the sum of its parts. Ignoring the other parts, especially when they are the ones that generally give lasting impressions, is foolish at best.

                One of those parts is noticeably improved in the sequel and the rest is about the same or maybe slightly worse
                Muh atmosphere and music aren't enough to make a game good when the core gameplay is subpar

      PE has

      >better gameplay that's more suited to the situation
      You know how tank controls are usually justified by the horror theme and it being awkward goes well with a sense of vulnerability?
      In PE2 you're the goddamn hunter. You're a godlike being capable of magic bullshit and you're here to fucking clean up. It does not make sense.

    Weird timing OP. I was just replaying the series.

    Parasite eve 1 had jank writing, pretty bad gameplay, and the need to constantly hold the run button to run was stupid. Also, locking the true ending through a masochistic bonus dungeon was retarded. Thank fucking God for YouTube.

    PE2 is from a gameplay perspective a much better game. I didn't find PE1 scary at all, and I can say the sequel never scared me either. The dialogue was translated better In pe2 for sure, but the game is very short. And the setting is boring as fuck.

    PE3 was just awful. Plot made little to no sense. Setting was stupid. Completely disregarded everything that did work in 1/2 and instead went with a shallow arcade shooter with light RPG elements, the dumbest plot to ever be in a square game, and a retarded ending that ruined the already minimal chance of ever getting a sequel.

    If I had to rate the series as a whole I'd give it a solid 6-7/10.

          You know what's weird? FF7R had a lot of KH1 and KH2 developers leading the charge on the FF13 developers who did grunt work for them. 7R's staff looked like T3B from a bird's eye viewpoint even if it was Nomura and Hamaguchi directing instead of Tabata.

          Tomotaka Shiroichi of the T3B team was even promoted as one of the battle design leads who worked with Kosuke Sakane and Teruki Endo of Capcom (just like Yuichi Kanemori), and for a brief time Mitsunori Takahashi of KH2FM who worked under Kanemori.

      >and I can say the sequel never scared me either.
      The fucking chasers will haunt my nightmares for the rest of my life. Their faces freaked me out, their animations freaked me out, the sounds they made freaked me out, and the fact that they were some of the most annoying enemies in the game that I consistently struggled with when I was younger cemented them in my memories as objects of genuine terror. I dreaded turning every corner for fear one would pop out and ruin my day. I also hated the blood/bone sucklers and the noises they made but you know what REALLY took it over the top for me? The bit in NeoArk where you go by the exhibit for the sucklers and there's that plaque describing them and how "wouldn't it be wonderful to be held forever in your mother's arms?" Knowing that the whole idea behind ANMCs was that they were people being turned into those things made that shit unnerving as fuck to me. Just the thought of somebody doing that to you, turning you into that, and then trying to sell it to you that it's better this way because "oh, you're a cute baby now and you can live forever like a cute baby and feel like you did when your mother loved you" shit. Creeped me the fuck out.

      I like the desert setting too, but at the same time it would have been cool if PE had its own identity as a horror series set in major cities with lots of recognizable landmarks to sort of play off of how Resident Evil focused on horror set in weird secluded places.

    The guy who worked on Mega Man Legends' combat soon worked on the same for this game soon after. He was one of the few who didn't join the rest of Square Osaka to work on FF11.

    He then worked on the combat for KH1, CoM, KH2, the Eidolons for FF13, and then Versus 13... but his work was scrapped because Tabata wanted his battle system to be easy for non-RPG fans to get into. Casuals also liked it explicitly for that reason.

    That's because the director of PE2 is the guy who wrote and created the Resident Evil lore, also the guy responsible in how RE1 should look and feel. A lot of the ideas that he had for the RE1 sequel were repurposed for PE2, so playing PE2 you're basically experiencing the true RE1 sequel.

        Kenichi Iwao had a completely different idea for the RE1 sequel than what we got. RE2 was written by Noboru Sugimura who wanted to give more of a thriller feel to the series than the slow mysterious X-files atmosphere that we got in RE1 and PE2.

    Where the fuck the guys that made these monsters kept something like that? in their underground facility?

      It really makes you wonder where in the lab they kept something that huge
      Also in Neo-Ark they claim the purpose of transhumanism is for pacifist purposes to make humans adapt to the environment and yet that thing has a huge flamethrower grafted in its own head, it shows how they had a desire to actually develop weapons along with the supersoldiers like No9

        The flamethrower is for easy access to grills and barbecues while you're out with your friends. It's (You)r way of thinking unfit for the future we want.

    if that was the case, why is that (now fired) hack Tabata listed as the director?

      Looks like you're fucking retarded and illiterate because it fucking says why chad tabata was listed, BECAUSE NOMURA APPOINTED HIM IN THAT POSITION BECAUSE NOMURA SAID HE WAS TOO BUSY TO MAKE SUER THE GAME DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE ON TRACK
      All tabata did was make sure the devs made the game with nomuras specifications and nomuras design documents and game design and plans and toriyamas story
      all that shit was alright cemented in the game before nomura event assigned tabata onto the game you fucking illiterate retard
      And based chad tabata left SE on his own choice 2 years after saving SE and FF and other SE devs like hasegawa the co director of twewy and art director of versus, and akira iwata the character designer of agni joined his company too

      Nomura pitched t3b to begin with, it was literally his brainchild, he then planned its entire game design and he told toriyama his ideas for the story which toriyama then wrote the story nomura requested, nomura also designed the characters on top of coming up with the fundamental game design of t3b and was also literally creative producer which means he's creatively incharge including him overseeing all the voice recording sessions
      nomura said he was just too busy to "direct", which in case you don't know is just the day in day out job of having the team making stuff according to the game design plans set at the start of development, to which nomura just appointed tabata to handle that since its just making sure the game is on track and each department is doing their job making the stuff according to the design document

      t3b is 100% nomuras game even more than ff7r is.

    I liked 3rd Birthday. Wish we got more of it. Overdiving was a fun mechanic, that stage on the 4th chapter (I think the one that has her boyfriend as the final boss) with the Mudflap slowly killing the group of soldiers one by one was pretty scary as a kid. So was the first chase with the Reaper.

    The first one was boring. Half or the game was running around a zoo and a mueseum.
    The second one was awesome.
