        Because it was very different from the preceding games. That's it. It went from a slow, survival horror experience with puzzles, inventory management, and limited resources to a full fledged action game that cranked the cheesy levels to 11. I love both the classics and RE4 though and I don't understand how somebody could get a raging hate boner for what is objectively a good game. Yeah it sent the series into a dark age after it but we've been out of that mess since RE7 came out in 2017.

        That is false. Silent Hill and Resident Evil approach horror from different angles. Silent Hill tries to freak you out with its unsettling atmosphere and soundtrack while Resident Evil relies a lot more on creating tense scenarios through limiting your resources and throwing the unexpected at you. Its not as freaky as SH from an atmosphere perspective but it makes up for it in other aspects.

      Retarded.

      I told you before and I'll tell you again, I didn't care that the graphics weren't as pretty (and it didn't show that easily on my shitty cheap CRT with RGB input), I had never played or seen the Gamecube version, and it still looked like spooky forests with rundown farmhouses and smatterings of old dead industry. I was looking for the gameplay anyway.

      If I couldn't cope with a lack of pretty graphics then I wouldn't have been able to enjoy the 3D trilogy of Grand Theft Auto, and those games were fairly hideous by the standards of their time.

      PS2 greatly reduced the color due to compression. Also I just noticed the first four enemies are all clearly related.

      That part makes sense though, they're an absurd murder cult so way out in the sticks of Spain that they still fucking trade in golden pesetas, almost none of them have indoor plumbing, running water, or electricity, and they're greatly isolated from the rest of the world.
      There's just no fucking way that there hasn't been a lot of inbreeding there through the ages.

      Because of many valid reasons...

      1) It wasn't a true RE game, it was more action and less horror. There were no zombies.
      2) It was just a reskinned Devil May Cry game.
      3) QTE's were added. Fucking dreadful.
      4) Ashley was annoying as fuck, I hate escort missions.
      5) The monsters in this game talk and they use weapons. Definitely not a true RE game.

      They still had you pushing boxes in RE4.

            That part is true, Devil May Cry started life as a proposed Resident Evil 4 by Hideki Kamija, one which strayed dramatically from the Resident Evil trappings and formulas, to the point Shinji Mikami thought that it really wasn't fit for the series and that they should instead retool the game into its own thing.
            Some smartass fag will reply "Strayed from Resident Evil? Like 4 lmao?!" but the way it strayed was that it was, well, much like the Devil May Cry that we got, lots of jumping and wild acrobatics, juggling enemies in the air with swords and guns, evil cyborg marionettes, etc. What Devil May Cry and Resident Evil have in common is that DMC and RE4 feature a castle, both depict firearms and monsters (in wildly differing manners), with Dante and Leon having similar hairstyles.

        >QTE's were added. Fucking dreadful.
        Most of the time, they are used for defensive moves, so like the RE3 dodge mechanics, but actually good.
        >Ashley was annoying as fuck, I hate escort missions.
        Now I know you never played the fucking game. Ashley is barely in it, She is glued to Leon's back unless told otherwise and be told to hide somewhere safe. RE4 is the only game to ever get an AI partner right
        >The monsters in this game talk and they use weapons
        Not only did Nemesis do both, but so did William. And while Alexia didn't use a weapons, she sure did talk, same with Marcus.
        It's good to know that the people that don't think RE4 is a real RE game never actually played the series.

    I liked it but admittedly I was just 12. When you are 12 you are like an average 30 year old modern vidya consumer nowadays, enjoy literally every game you play without thinking much. Replayed it recently and it was pretty fun, doesn't give you the same feeling as its predecessors but still feels like a RE game surprisingly. People give it too much shit for being 'different' but to me it's like when Zelda jumped to 3D. Does anyone say that OoT is not a real Zelda game? No. For me it's the same situation with RE4

    They are autist that hate change despite RE4 being the natural progression for the series. RE2 is considered to be the best game to a lot of classic RE fans, and yet when Kamiya was making it, he explicitly said he was influenced by Hollywood Action movies and he even stated he hates horror. RE was also an action game at heart, so RE4 went for a different type of fear, the fear of being isolated in a foreign country.

    RE4 if it had never come out on PS2 would be universally considered the second GOAT after Ocarina. It's only because the PS2 came out with the 8 models on-screen, starchyass scarecrows, and bright daylight, and watered down Merchant shop pricing that there is any reason to complain. Capcom shot themselves in the foot and to this day don't know what to do with the series.

                You aren't very literate when it comes to these subjects, so read this material so you can catch up to what I'm talking about.

                compression isn't a bad thing by the way, it's not an insult to the cube, it just has some inherent traits. It's apparent in grey textures like concrete which look more green, but it's in every texture on cube simply because of how it works. It is indeed a loss of color information so can be a drawback, but it's not a bad thing.

    The core RE audience heading into the 00s were snoy boys and a smattering of PC gaimers. Capcom bit the hand that fed them thrice in one generation by putting the first and best versions Code Veronica on the Dreamcast, morphing the original RE4 in Devil May Cry, then signing the exclusive deal with Nintendo. So a lot of it was the fox and the grapes as most people thought buying a GC for those games was not worth it. REmake and RE0 didn't come until 12 year later, and the PS2 and original PC RE4 ports were grossly inferior to the cube versions.

    Hardcore RE fans hated the rejection of the classic formula and being denied the opportunity to take down umbrella. They were seething that RE4 did its own thing exceptionally well while they had some classic formula bread crumbs in the form of Outbreak 1+2 and built a cult around the brilliant, if flawed send off the Raccoon City arc.

        If you don't like Contra or Quake you don't like fun.

        Because of many valid reasons...

        1) It wasn't a true RE game, it was more action and less horror. There were no zombies.
        2) It was just a reskinned Devil May Cry game.
        3) QTE's were added. Fucking dreadful.
        4) Ashley was annoying as fuck, I hate escort missions.
        5) The monsters in this game talk and they use weapons. Definitely not a true RE game.

        They still had you pushing boxes in RE4.

        It plays fucking nothing like Devil May Cry, you fucking spastic, there's no super jumping or swordfighting, there's no infinite ammo or transforming into a demon. Goddamn, what an obnoxiously retarded and aggressively incorrect observation.

      >item slots
      RE4's item management is weapon-focused; there's still just as much strategizing, but the items being managed are different. i'd argue there's more strategy because you not only choose what to hold but how you organize it. if you're going to criticize this, then tell me how realistic the fucking magic stash box in classic RE is.
      >puzzles
      that's literally one of the first puzzles in RE4. come on dude. this is retarded even if we ignore the fact that RE4's puzzles are the gameplay; the way you approach each encounter, not just some fucking riddle with a pre-defined answer.
      >risk of dying
      why is classic RE more of a survival horror game just because it inconveniences you for 5 minutes instead of 5 seconds? unlike the other games, RE4 actually records your deaths. try beating RE4 with no deaths on pro and then we can talk about survival horror.
      >health and ammo
      there is nothing inherently wrong with having more ammo if there are more enemies. this argument comes down to believability, in which case you're forced to reconcile the believability of classic RE's item management with the fact you're playing a series about a zombie outbreak with mutated spiders. what matters is the gameplay.
      >complexity and backtracking
      that image is literally one tiny area, there are tons of non-linear environments. RE4 has plenty of areas where you'll be running back through the same routes a few times; it also has large areas like the village where you can explore multiple buildings in whatever order you want. it has multiple sections with branching paths and permanent missibiles. it even has shortcuts and backtracking routes, like how you can go back to the castle to get the broken butterfly, or go back across the river to find a hidden merchant and fight dogs before you'd normally first find them. you can't even see all of the game on one playthrough.
      RE4 will always be the best.

I think it actually does a good job of creating the illusion of scarcity and I think that's what makes it a great game. I can't speak as much for RE2 and 3 though, I've played them much less because I find them really boring.

        Taking the storage space WITH you in RE would break the gameplay, the point is that it's not with you as you go through dangerous areas. but in RE4 it basically is.
        Ammo availability doesn't matter, the point is that RE4 reward the killing with even more ammo/health/money drops, while in classic RE you gain nothing from using up ammo

          You're still really limited on your storage space depending on how many guns you're carrying in RE4. Its not until you get the final case upgrade that you can pretty safely have breathing room in there for the rest of the game.

      RE4 actually has more puzzles than RE2 and more complex ones at that. Also, puzzles in RE has always been baby tier. If you're looking for real puzzles, play SH
      >Risk of dying
      There's always a typewriter like 5 or 6 rooms apart from one another, and the games give you so many ink ribbons that you have to actively use them on nothing to run out.
      RE4 risk of dying is having to clear a room again, and that is far more difficult than having to walk a few rooms from where you died.
      >Health and Ammo
      Here is the biggest tell that someone didn't play Classic RE. Those games can't stop fucking giving the player ammo. You probably have more than enough to kill every twice.

    Because they took away from us the great Umbrella conspiracy story without EVER closing it properly. RE2, 3 and CV were all promising and teasing us with this great grand finale, where Umbrella would be brought down for good. When RE4 hit the shelves, they had thrown everything out. Zombies, hunters, Tyrants and lickers were all gone, so was the T-virus and instead here I am, shooting some slug infested beaners and Hispanics in some European Mexico. It was a literal slap in the face, when during the opening I'm told that the major grand finale against Umbrella actually took place behind the scenes during the interim of two games, and all it really involved was crashing their stocks. I was robbed closure. Capcom staff can't write worth a shit.

    Also, nearly every enemy dropping ammo and loot was a bit too much. Part of the appeal of the oldies was that you had to scavenge and put effort into finding that shit. That was part of the challenge. RE4 abandoned its roots to cater to the dumb masses. It was a decent shooter as a stand-alone, don't get me wrong on that, but my god it was a fucking shitty Resident Evil-entry.

      This game had so much going for it. It had body part specific damage, like shooting zombies purposely in the head hurt them more. Shooting Pluto's brain (the fat Tyrant) was the only way to hurt it, and with the silenced pistol you were actually able to make the fight really easy, because Pluto, being blind, then couldn't hear where your attacks came from, making him unable to attack you. And all of this is easy to exploit, because the game has built-in support for USB mouse aiming. There was a wealth of opportunity for tactical play.

      Bruce and Fong Ling were excellent characters with great chemistry, and more importantly, they were something new, blank slates. They left with a lot of untapped potential for sequels. Morpheus Duvall was a kickass boss. The Umbrella ship was a very exciting location that was used well, and the story finally properly started exploring Umbrella's other dealings outside of Raccoon City, while also showing how desperate the Umbrella bosses were getting now that government agencies around the world are hunting them after the Raccoon fuck up.

      Dead Aim was totally taking the series to the correct direction, and then it was just completely ignored. That is the true tragedy here.

    One day the boogeyman is Code Veronica

    Or no actually RE3 is fault for being too-action and starting the whole mess.
    Matter of fact is: they are just chasing after that nostalgic trip and yearn for days that are long over. There is not even a single gameplay-related reason why they prefer 2 over the others. Because these people (majority, normalfags, the plebs and scrubs in the community) don't want to "play" games. They are chasing "experiences" and feelings to get a temporary dopamine kick.
    That's really it. And before you start seething at me ask this yourself: when was the last time you actually played any of these games? Your favorite RE i mean. You don't need to tell me. Just ask that yourself and be real with yourself. Did you like the game OR the time you spent with it?

    I wasn't there, but it just reeks of autism since every 30-something or older RE fan I've met in real life loved the fourth game.

    What is the best way to play RE4 these days?

      Realizing that every RE game that came before it is better, and playing them instead.

        I think there was a nice texture mod released for PC recently, is it possible to use those textures in Dolphin?

    All the hype of 'taking down umbrella' taken completely out of the hands of the players and just left to 'stock collapse'.
    All the moody slow paced horror atmosphere replaced with near constant action. And this happened while the horrible live action RE movies were also being pushed. Felt like the entire formula for the entire franchise was forcibly changed to appeal to hollywood and the masses.
    Inventory management changed massively, even if it was for the better.
    The struggles of item limits are gone. Game throws plenty of health at you throughout and ammo can be grabbed from lots of downed enemies.
    Only one serious puzzle in the game, and while RE never went as brain-teasing as SH they were still a large part of the charm that was removed.
    Soundtrack isn't good, especially when compared to the games that came before it. There's no music in RE4 that makes me want to go back and re-experience it compared to every prior game. The constant action always overtakes the soundtrack, I think the only musical pieces I can remember are from water room (because you spend so much time there), robot salazar, and the starting cue for the final boss theme.
    Also RE4 dragged QTE's from being a stupid Shenmuetard gimmick into the mainstream and fucked over all games for years. And I like some of RE4's QTEs.

    RE4 is still god danm fantastic though. But it ignored the entire formula. Outside of silly minor things like a hidden fixed camera option for a DLC, old fans were treated like we didn't exist until 2017, and even with RE7 on it's debatable if it's a respectable evolution of the old formula or not.
    Also on a more personal level, RE4's locations are ways less interesting in looks and design. Only RE4's Castle stands out. Every prior game's setting(s) were significantly more interesting.

      This has been a thing since RE2. It's like everyone has this perfect picture of what RE is, but they only end up describing RE1.

        You're the type that thinks masturbation is exercise, aren't you?
        What fundamentally changed in the slow paced horror atmosphere from 1 to 'near constant action' in 2/CV? The control scheme is the same. The music is done with many of the same hallmarks. The design is the same backtracking to unlock the next bits and pieces of the environment you're in.
        Is it because mathematically there is enough ammunition to kill everything with, even if most of that ammunition isn't available until the closing minutes of the game?
        Watching a speedrunner leave the majority of enemies untouched doesn't mean it's got some special extra horror going on.

          RE1/REmake
          >Opening cutscene is Chris and Co searching a crashed helicopter before getting attacked by dogs and thrn hiding in a mysterious mansion
          RE2
          >Game starts with Leon stumbling into a city of zombies before saving Claire and then getting into a fiery car accident and being separated
          RE3
          >The first fucking cutscene is Jill jumping out of a burning surrounded by zombies
          CV
          >Opening cutscene has Claire running from a fucking attack helicopter
          RE0
          >Opening cutscene shows the train getting fucked by Marcus, no suspense at all.
          >SLOW PACED FUCKING HORROR
          Kamiya himself said he went into RE2 with a Hollywood action movie mindset. You have to be fucking retarded not to see it.

          yeah, I remember suplexing dudes and having cartoony banter with tiny napoleon before buying an rpg from a funny merchant and blowing him up in re2. the writing was on the wall really.

          >Wacky things never happened in RE before RE4
          >Let's forget about the Tyrant walking around in a suit
          >Or the Tyrant walking around with a fucking rocket launcher
          >Or the entire opening to CV
          >Or Wesker and Alexia having a matrix fight
          >Or Wesker being back in general
          >Or Alfred being a cross dressing freak with his gay fucking laugh
          >Or the weird incest relationship between Alfred and Alexia
          >Or the Gay leech Oprah singer
          >Nope, all of those are super serious
          Hell, not even RE1 is spared from it because of its awful dub and that's one of the reasons why it's beloved.

    I hated spending most of my time running from room I've already been to to room I've already been to in order to swap out items in my absurdly gimped inventory space. I like re4 more.

    Opposite of your q though

    It wasn't survival horror, it was action horror.
    For fucks sake they said that at the time. Even people who praised it.

    What earned my hate was forcing 4:3 letterboxed aspect ratio, with no options for normal 4:3 or 16:9. Playing RE4 for GV on a 14" tv was not a great experience.
