It’s a damn shame it has come to this with these “remakes.” While I still like REmake 2 from a gameplay perspective, it cannot replace the original without retconning everything that came before it. I don’t know why Capcom refuses to do justice to OG RE3.. they pulled this same stunt in Umbrella Chronicles with reused assets and enemies. The original introduced more new content than the remake did." Yes the remakes should not be considered canon if you are deep into the lore. They are reimaginings, a parallel modern retelling to draw in the new fans who have no desire to play the old originals. They do not replace the originals. Remake 3 also has file dates that makes the events of both Outbreak games impossible to occur too. "
" OG RE3 has all the hospital staff dead by Sep 26th. Remake 3 files has the hospital still operating and treating patients on Sep 29th, the same day Leon and Claire arrive in town, meaning The Hive scenario in Outbreak physically cannot occur. Likewise the newspaper in Remake 3 reports only the third zombie attack incident this month on Sep 25 - thats a whole day after the military blockaded the city in OG 3 and two days after the army of zombies was blown up on Main St.
Remake 3 treats Outbreak like it never happened, yet compensates by throwing in easter egg references with its locations etc. "
You are right. When I played re2 remake. It was Resident Evil Remake 2 to me not Resident Evil 2 remake. It was more inspired by Remake 1There's no "law of remakes" on how a remake should be developed.
Whether or not the remake becomes near-faithful to the original or not is up to whoever is developing the remake.
Sometimes, you have players who enjoy the remake for what it is and can't be bothered to play the older original title.
So it's pointless to tell these players how much is missing or altered.
Ironically, all the gothic horror creatures would have been fine if they were their own thing, but after learning they are all basically mold creatures, that left a bad taste in my mouth. The fact the mold can literally create any life form just like the C-Virus bothers me. There’s no more rules, the only reason why Capcom have chosen this route is so they can have more creative liberties with the series. I would have preferred a B-Virus or something, anything but mold again.So Resident Evil Village is the weirdest looking entry to date. LOL. I love how they made us think Elena was going to be a secondary character from the initial trailers, just to kill her off relatively early.
And some of the community is still like...
"Oh my. There's vampires and werewolves in my Resident Evil."
Come off it. You know aliens are coming next!
