It’s like arguing apples to oranges I have found out. Back in 2009 I would get in heated arguments about RE5 and how it ruined the series. In a way it has come full circle for me with RE8 but if people enjoy the game I don’t want to take that away from them. RE is like a candy shop, there’s something here for everyone. Would I have preferred the series to have a more focused and tight story like RE0-CV? Absolutely, but that’s just my opinion and the series could be dead today if it kept that format.1. The horror. Something the pre-action ones did so well.
2. The story. Very compelling.
3. The characters. Some of the best in gaming.
4. The longevity. That is to be respected.
5. The community. Some of the funniest in all of the Internet. No one really agrees on anything, which leads to hilarious battles online.
