Well I think that that proves without a shadow of a doubt that RE4 is guilty of the crime of which it is accused. The statute of limitations never runs out on criminally bad storylines. Thank you. There will be no further questions.
People cried heresy over RE4. But now people don't think of it like that so much, because of how much the series has evolved over time. I'm pretty optimistic believe it or not about some things, but I am still crying heresy. RE4 has blasphemed the RE name even if it was fun and looked awesome and had Mercenary mode.
I go back and I play Rebirth or Re2 and I think of how awesome these games are and I think to what has happened from RE4. Granted stupid stuff happens in stories, especially from video games but I didn't want it to happen to this game series.
I still think this is legitimate criticism even though I make these threads in jest. RE4 is still relevant, it is part of the main storyline. It may have gotten people into the series but the older games have so much more value to me. Sure I beat 4 like 5 billion times like other people and it was cool, but it just doesn't deliver to me. The replay value is good, but the atmosphere and the very nature of the game isn't like my beloved series.
Nothing to tie it in good enough. I will say right now 100% I would have preferred RE4 not only to have a decent story, but to play like the classic games play. Sure, I understand people wanted the upgrades to gameplay, but I think they could be implimented differently so as to not make the game pure action. I don't know if 5 will ever erase the poopstain that is this game. Will that even be good enough?
I wouldn't be so kind to call the plot "light" it is pure idiocy. Believe me when I say my beef is with the core story, not just some Ganado looking into the camera and this whole thing. That was just hilarious.
