I'm sure even knowing there's a hundred Ada clones all trying to murder him and possibly bring about the end of the world, Leon still prefers her for some reason because he can't have her

I also support Leon x Ada.

Although everybody ships Leon with everybody. They teased him with Ashley who will never show up again. They teased him with Angela who will never show up again. And maybe others after that(my last RE was 5 and Degeneration).

Dude is a chick magnet. But all along he had eyes only for Ada.

Well, can't really blame people for the Ashley thing, her like almost literal last line in the game was "hey, want to hook up later" or something to that effect.

uhhhhhhh slow plodding enemies lol have you only see vids of that one type because you might be in for a shock. its an 100% an RE game.

I've not seen that much of RE7, but what I have seems very atypical of what I expect from Resident Evil. The first-person perspective makes it seem like they were trying for something more like Amnesia or any number of the FPP horror games that have come out in the last several years, and there was nothing real iconic that was shown off in major (Umbrella, STARS, any returning characters or monsters, etc.).

Again, though, I've not seen that much, so I'm sure the typical RE stuff is in there, but when it was first shown off, I thought maybe Capcom was doing some kind of reboot. From what I've heard, the game is pretty solid, and is more of a survival-horror game than RE5 or RE6 was.

Yeah, the first-person perspective might make it seem that way, but you can take our word for it that it's very much still a Resident Evil game. There's only the barest similarity to Amnesia in any part of it.

They were definitely trying to ride the success of P.T. and got relatively lucky that P.T. got canceled, RE7 was one of THE top games for content creators on YouTube/Twitch when it came out, everyone from serious LPers, virtual youtubers, comedy gaming channels were all playing it because the opening bit of the game is loving frightening.

That's one thing the Resident Evil teams have done extremely well in my opinion, every decade they start to shake up their own genre so the games feel pretty fresh and accessible to new players. You've gotta remember that Resident Evil 4 was nothing like 1-3 too, and 4 basically innovated an entire genre of third-person shooters inspiring games like Gears of War & Dead Space. In the case of 7, they weren't the first but were definitely the biggest and the spirit of survival horror was totally there with a huge emphasis on the survival-horror part this time.

I think the original plan was to make RE:Gaiden canon and have RE4 start with Leon being infected, which kind of explains his whole 'dead man walking' attitude.

Leon always comes off as still a huge doofus trying to be cool. He is paradoxically cool as hell (spinkick head explosions, etc) while being endearingly lame and it's the best part of RE4 Leon.

It sounds like you're saying RE4 Leon wasn't a nerd. This is the guy that falls down a trap door and says "I'm not falling for that old trick" and fires a grappling hook from his utility belt. Leon absolutely watched a bunch of action movies and took notes on all the cool lines he could bust out during the mission.

Now RE6 Leon, that's another story.

Edit: It just occured to me that RE4 Leon is pretty similar to DMC's Vergil, in that they're both nerdy as gently caress but also actually have the skills to back it up. Ironic considering Dante is the one that started out as Leon.

Yes, but the specific type of crate that can contain items is very noticeable and obvious, you can pretty much ignore everything else.

Actually his first day as a cop involved getting blackout drunk at a motel because his girlfriend dumped him. His first night as a cop was the zombie apocalypse thing.

An interview with Kamiya in the Biohazard 2 Guidebook

quote:

Q6. Why was Leon wearing the Raccoon police uniform before he arrived at his post?

A6. I'll tell you about Leon before he came to Raccoon City...
Recently strange incidents have been occurring in Raccoon, a country town unfamiliar with such bizarre cases; Leon graduated from the police academy and with his strong sense of justice, he was very interested in them and immediately decided to be assigned to the Raccoon Police Department.
Needless to say, he was to be assigned to such service starting from the morning that day, but when he was leaving the place where he'd lived until then, he broke up with his girlfriend and a great uproar happened from the separation, so his move became overdue (they seem to have finally separated in the end...)
Eventually, while his new address had yet to be decided, Leon drove to Raccoon City all through the night on the day before he was to assume his post. However, along the way at a motel, Leon was rowdy and began drinking. He got helplessly drunk and by the time he woke up it was already the early afternoon! (He seems irresponsible, but you could say what disturbs his mind is Leon's faithfulness to women)
Leon panicked, ran out and also attempted to communicate with the Raccoon Police Department several times along the way, but there was no response.
"At this rate I'll reach Raccoon in the middle of the night... Fine, day or night, it doesn't matter if I'm late."
Leon drove his car over the rhythm in tune with his favorite music playing from the car stereo. The highway extended straight ahead eerily rising in the setting sun's illumination, and the crimson Arklay Mountains towered...
...Basically he changed into the uniform he was supplied in the motel.
