Resident Evil 6 announced. Is it worth the hype?
As many of you probably know Capcom officially announced the sixth installment to what used to be an amazing survival horror franchise. Resident Evil 6 is officially on it’s way to the Playstation 3 and XBOX 360.
Now many new age gamers are probably jumping for joy, but in my honest opinion I am not excited about Resident Evil 6 in the least, and here is why.
Let’s take a trip back in time to when Resident Evil premiered in 1995 for the Playstation console. Remember that classic scene in the mansion where you’re walking down that long hallway, and suddenly CRASH! The dog jumps through the window and runs after you? Remember those days? I can’t tell you how high pitched my scream was that night. I give myself kudos for playing this game in the dark with a lit candle.
Since the days after Resident Evil Code Veronica I have seen this franchise turn away from it’s survival horror roots and lean towards a Gears of War aspect. This really disappoints me because a lot of game companies these days are so obsessed with pleasing new age gamers that they turn their backs on their original fans who helped them obtain the prestige they have today. Resident Evil is a survival horror game that is supposed to scare fans, and provide an action packed gaming experience all at the same time. Today the franchise seems to focus solely on creating an action game similar to Resistance and Gears of War.
I would love to hear everyone’s opinion on this upcoming title.
