Wanted to say hello as this is my first post, long, long, long time Lurker, since way back when I first found that you guys had info up for 4d-executor.
But I'm a bigger fan of the older games in the series and often get in arguments with other gamers about which is the best RE. More often then not I hear 4&5.
I regretfully disagree. I'm a big fan of 3. Loved Nemmy, loved the ability to make custom ammo or upgrade the guns and most importantly loved the recognization of at some point I would have to either choose fight or flight. Which I feel is a big part missing from these newer Survival horror games.
I don't have to really be afraid of anything considering I'm armed to the teeth and I can buy ammo every 30 steps. Most areas where I have to fight are wide open as well.
This is in a large part (I think anyway) due to what you guys have stated earlier in that games are targeted toward the casual crowd. I used to work at Gamestop and I can't tell you how many people bitched and moaned about how you couldn't run in shoot in Resident evil and the biggest complaint was "teh dawgs killed me" or how they couldn't kill every enemy in every room.
In effort to keep everyone happy we are stuck with these run and blast everything to death games.
I would really love to see the new RE game attempt to bring me back to a point where I didn't feel so safe in everything I do. I mean in 4 and 5 whos honestly afraid of doing anything there's checkpoints every 10 minutes....Remember when you had to save or sit there mouth agape when you lost 30-45 minutes because you got brave decided not to and something killed you?
