i like capcom but project zero pawns resident evil, that's how i feel and RE apparently can't change that

quote article
gore is part of that
i don't really agree 100%, something doesn't need to be all goth-zombie-freaky-dismbembering-dracula-like to be spooky

I hate seeing games with less gore or violence just to get a lower rating...

If your going to make a violent game, make it violent, don't "dumb" it down for the young ones.

Kudos to Capcom, I guess?

But I agree with x_revenge: gore doesn't always mean spooky. Just look at Hollywood hack n' slash flicks... not as scary as psychological thrillers in most cases.

To be honest, I haven't found Resident Evil frightening in a very long time, and I'm hard pressed to believe anyone else still does too. Oh, and co-op? Cool, but since when do scary games allow co-op?

The last properly scary Resident Evil game was Code Veronica. RE4 wasn't scary. Although the chainsaw people were certainly interesting up close...

For those who didn't know already, the ORIGINAL Resident Evil for playstation was originally planned to have Co-op mode. Jill and Chris were to play through the game together. I've seen screenshots. It makes the storyline make much more sense that way. After all, the "true" ending was a combination of the endings for each character...

Even though the only RE that I've played through is RE4, I'm still a fan of the series. I'm happy to see that Capcom isn't selling itself out to make a profit.

DG,

That's right, I agree that Resident Evil: Code Veronica X was the scariest game in the series along with the Classic Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 4 is still a good game, but not enough of scary things.

I hope Resident Evil 5 will raise the bar, or if it's not, wait for RE 6!!!!

I thought RE4 was scary.... I also thought Code Veronica was scary too, but that was probably a result of not being able to control the camera.

In regard to recent RE games not being "scary" like the old ones. I actually wrote a review about this for gamespot... And it should be obvious but some of you don't see WHY it's not scary anymore. Hello!? It is no longer the same genre! It isn't "survival" horror anymore! In the old days you have 10 bullets and 20 zombies to get through, and that in itself was a scary prospect. Now, since RE4, you have damn near infinite ammo 'cause everytime you kill something you get more! Thus, taking out the survival aspect of the horror, which in itself almost 100% negates any of the original horror feel we had in those days. Let's face it, RE4 was a fantastically fun game, and had many "improvements", but those drastic improvements changed the same so much that it's no longer the same series, hell it's not even the same genre!
