Capcom Invites Gamer Feedback About Resident Evil Series

chrisREmake.jpg

After all the hullabaloo over Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D not allowing players to delete saved games, and in anticipation of a lot of Resident Evil coming on to the market in the upcoming year, Capcom posted on its (fairly active) RE Facebook page that it's looking for gamer feedback about the future of the series. According to the post:

Let's chat about upcoming Resident Evil games. We've introduced two new game concepts in Mercenaries and Operation Raccoon City, bringing back classics in RE4 and RE:CV, and going back to survival horror in Revelations. As a fan of Resident Evil, what do you think we're doing right and what should we be working on?

Indeed, the Resident Evil franchise seems to be spreading out in to multiple genres, with the arcade-style Mercenaries, co-op multiplayer Operation Raccoon City, the much-talked-about transition from survival horror with RE4 (I don't know how I feel about Capcom calling it a "classic" though...it's not even ten years old) and RE5, and, as the post mentions, a return to the series' roots with Revelations. As of this posting Capcom has already received over 900 comments, so if you want to get your say in don't wait too long. If you ask me, diversifying is better than ossifying, and Capcom has done a pretty commendable job of keeping a core "feel" to the RE series. The REmake and RE5 may seem like very different games, but there's no denying that they have the same DNA.

What do you think?

I'd kill for a REmake of 2 and 3 the way they did 1. And a HD version of REmake, too. I could die happy if I had that...

No more REmakes please. Enough of that crap. I want a new RE game without the action/shooter crap. I want a new RE game that's survival horror, with good characters and a gripping storyline. Something scary, not POW! POW! POW! EXPLOSION! BAM! BAM! BAM! CHAINSAW! JUMP THROUGH WINDOW! Yawn.

Plus, I want to know what the hell is going on with Sherry. I mean, come ON. Two games in a row, they've faked us out with a mysterious blonde girl who hasn't turned out to be her.

You seriously wouldn't want to see Resident Evil 2 recreated like the Gamecube version of 1, only in HD? Because I'd sell a kidney to finance that if it'd get it made.

I'd prefer the series break into two franchises set within the same universe. Have one dedicated to survival horror, and another dedicated to RE5's co-op direction of action games. RE5 was one of the most entertaining and fun co-op game experiences I've had. Where both people actually felt useful and necessary in boss fights and combat team-up.

Plus, I'd like to see new characters as well as old characters. But more immediately, I think Claire needs her own updated action game where she can be the star. Leon and Chris got theirs, and we've had enough of male-centric/male lead RE games lately.

Although I am excited for the remakes, I want to see new games in the series that have that awesome horror feel you got from the early games like 1 and 2. To be frank, I was extreamly disaponted with RE5, it wasent anything like the other games and was way more like a shooter than a horror game. Although it is true that it has the same "DNA" as RE4 it was not nearly as good because RE4 still has elements from the old games like solveing puzzles. Although RE4 also has a lot more shooting than the other games, it still has creepy moments unlike RE5 such as walking through a hospital shotgun in hand with freaky music. Its stuff like that that makes RE what it is, having a creepy setting where you have no idea what might be around the next corner, that with some mystery and puzzles thrown in is what makes RE awesome. These are the reasons Im excited for the remake but I want to see a new game that has that horror and thouse puzzles, I feel that is what is really needed to make up for RE5. On a side note, Wesker should be in the game too because you just cant kill him, he survived everything else so why cant he survive a little lava and two RPGs that dident even directly hit him, besides it wont feel right without at least having some kind of mention of him since hes the iconic villian of the series, somebody needs to unlease another virus afterall.

The Resident Evil series is my all time favorite game series! I'm a fan of all the games, I own all the main ones and Dead Aim. Code: Veronica X; Dead Aim and the Remake of RE1 are my favorites though. I'm not a huge fan of the movies but I do own them. I can't wait for future RE games. Thank you Mr. Shinji Mikami for making such a great game series1 And thank you Capcom for publishing the games!

@Everett Morthier:

The RPG rockets went through Wesker's head.
Unless his head can grow back and he can survive lava, he's not coming back.

Resident Evil 5 does have a few puzzles,
so they aren't completely absent from the game.

I'm not a big fan of the series.

Resident Evil 4 didn't interest me much.
I got it for my brother and haven't played more than ten minutes of it.

The old ones scared me when I was a kid and I have no interest in playing them now.

I tried the demo for Resident Evil 5 and fell in love. The full game didn't disappoint.

Though I don't like the idea of playing as "the bad guys" in Operation Raccoon City, it looks great.

I'd like to see the series continue to focus on the action aspects.

After what they did to Mega Man Legends, and seeing how Mercenaries was, I'm not giving Capcom another shiny penny for the rest of my life. If they put out anything even remotely interesting, I'll maybe pick it up used. Just as long as they don't see any money from it, I'm cool with that.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
