Resident Evil 4 is a good video game and I hope fans both new and old continue to enjoy it for years to come.
Oh to be back in 2005 and watch GameFAQs threads rage on about RE4 again. The argument between old and new fans of the series over RE4 on release was based around the topic of "RE4 is a great game but a lovely RE game", all because of the completely different style and setting (and of course because all the PS2 owners couldn't play it, at least not for a long time after GCN owners had torn the game inside-out with speedruns and ruined any and all spoilers for them in the process).

I'm still on the fence for the latter point somewhat when comparing it to the games before RE4's time (since there's no denying that RE4 is indeed a great game in itself), because while RE4 did do away entirely with so much (practically everything) of what made a Resi game up to that point, CV and Zero had exposed a side of the traditional style which was starting to get awfully stale (puzzles becoming exponentially convoluted and senseless with obscene amounts of backtracking). RE4 is perhaps just a little too linear with a set of 'puzzles' that only an idiot would find mentally taxing (and it turns into a bit of a dull slog by the final location), but I'd take that sort of thing over another game where nearly 50% of the playtime is just stomping back and forth between several empty rooms just to find four parts of a loving key.

yeah, puzzles in resident evil games got very redundant and uninteresting, consisting mainly of pushing a thing or backtracking to put a thing in a hole. they became even more taxing with your limited inventory in RE2 and up, leading to obnoxious box runs. I like the "hardcore" sensibilities of RE 1-3 but absolutely loving hated the logic that I cannot carry 6 tiny loving keys at once in my pocket. Guns and ammo, I can understand. For inventory reasons alone I find it hard to play the games again. RE4's tetris attache case was a revelation.
The gameplay changes in RE4 were a much-needed mix-up to keep the series from stagnating completely and the Item Tetris inventory was a huge improvement over the 'everything takes up equal space' logic of the previous games, but I still think key/puzzle items could have shared the same inventory as weapons/ammo without making the game some sort of unbearable braincrushing exercise in discarding your least-needed item every time you found one.

MinibarMatchman posted:

I'd still say RE4 was a good RE game, even when it radically changed from zombies to parasitic cult monsters, changed the aiming and controls mostly for the better, and revamped item management. RE5 and maybe 6 I'd say were good 3rd person games but were Resident Evil in name and characters only. People will probably say the same for RE7's new modus operandi but I'm all for fresh takes while still getting the remake of RE2.
I think RE5 and RE6 are better RE games than RE4 ever was, if not least because in RE4 I could spray ammo around with little concern, knowing that the rubberbanding difficulty would be more generous with ammo drops if I deliberately played like poo poo

Well alright, RE5 would conveniently throw around spare handgun ammo to stop me from looking like a complete fool who'd played the system and lost, but RE6 on No Hope doesn't really fall for that sort of playerside shenanigans; it's refereshingly stingy after giggling through RE4 and RE5 on Professional without a care in the world for ammo supplies (although RE5 is a horrible, horrible oval office for cheap damage and the absolute worst version of the "Dying" state which is utterly pointless if your partner is more than two loving feet away).

I do miss the Item Tetris of RE4 when I play something like RE0 or CV (fffuuuuuuck those two for making me backtrack endlessly just to get Item A and Item B together at last to make Item C and immediately put it back in the loving box/on the floor), but at the same time I'm sort of glad that they've largely done away with the Status Screen Safety Net in general when it comes to newer titles since the puzzles are just part of the environment now; sure we have no way of pausing the action incase the phone goes, but for some unfathomable (probably OCD along the lines of "now the ammo doesn't divide into full magazines aaaaaaa") reason I can't stand it when I see someone manually reloading weapons via the Item Screen in the older RE games. I used to go to a mate's place to race through the PlayStation trilogy and I'd sit there grinding my loving teeth to dust whenever he'd stop to reload his weapons after clearing a room, even if it was just one loving zombie.

As far as RE7 goes, I'm not going to leap to assumptions and slag it off for being different; for all the differences RE4 brought, it was still a fantastic game and remains thoroughly enjoyable (even if the control is starting to get a bit stiff and clunky in the face of stuff like RE6 and Revelations 2). I've yet to hate any of the main titles and I don't think RE7 is going to be the one to buck that trend. And even if I do end up hating it, there's always RE2 Rebirth.


I was actually playing this one recently and might have to set up my old PlayStation again, since no emulator I've found will allow me to hear the glorious acting within the game. Believe me when I say that the already boring Survivor's duration is interminably dull without the dramatic cheese of lispy protagonist Ark Thompson to liven things up along the way. I can only hope that the first-person perspective is the only thing RE7 will have in common with this game.

Gold Edition? If it comes with the DLC stuff for that price, then yes, moreso if you can get yourself a co-op buddy. The partner AI seems to constantly get itself (and you) into the worst situations in RE5, stuff which is so easily avoidable if you replace said AI with a living, breathing (and competent of course) human.

This one just refused to shine at all; I know where it is (using one of the sandbags in the tunnel as a marker), but the bastard thing just stayed invisible no matter what we did with the lantern. Got frustrated with trying to fine-aim my way over the ceiling in the end and starting throwing grenades around to dislodge it instead, which worked.

Man I wish they'd kept these for RE6. Also the gun upgrading. And everything else that made RE5 so drat good. Wonder what kinda guy it was that decided "so uhh, RE5 is one of our best selling games of all time, let's avoid doing anything like that this time".
I'm not really fussed either way regarding the loss of treasures or weapon upgrades in RE6. The former would have been a better way to acquire Skill Points rather than just getting them through the act of killing poo poo and completing chapters, but oh well. As far as weapon upgrading goes, I was less of a fan of this thing in general, but found it particularly aggravating in the way it was implemented in RE5. As mentioned, you can just brute force your way past poo poo by slowly upgrading weapons after every death or other failure, which gradually removes the challenge which the game's supposed to present (except for poo poo like QTE's which are all bullshit fake difficulty anyway). RE4's weapon upgrading on the other hand was a bit of an oddball since the rubberbanding difficulty would frequently just gently caress around making enemies stronger etc. in an attempt to rebalance things anyway (and story-wise it was loving stupid but that's not the point).

smuh posted:

And for some reason they continued to ignore weapon upgrading in both Revelations games, instead going with sticking crappy parts on guns. Which was very unsatisfying in comparison.
Even though it often made little difference to a weapon's effectiveness, I actually preferred this sort of system over directly upgrading the hard stats of the weapon itself

I was probably in the wrong mood for them since I was expecting Resident Evil-ish things. I should also not have been sober.

The live-action ones are just abso-loving-lutely terribad in every single way, with the sole exception of the first one which is barely passable but still bad. For what it is, it at least does something to vaguely resemble the first game with the whole mansion/lab/special forces thing going on... although this was probably a complete accident knowing Anderson. The Licker also looked like utter poo poo.

How you got through the rest of them sober is beyond me though; I started drinking without even realising it when I saw Nemesis turn up and behave nothing like Nemesis in the second movie. It was like some sort of subconscious defence mechanism to not ruin how I've always remembered Nemesis to actually be, which doesn't involve pointless martial arts displays and having moments of reason. gently caress that movie. gently caress all of them. The rest of the events after that all blur together into some horrible lovely mess of in-name-only characters, a fat Wesker, the RE5 fight turned into some sort of comedy skit, Alice making everyone else look like the average RE NPC regardless of importance in the games, bullshit superpowers, BARRY loving BURTON BEING KILLED OFF, clones everywhere and what the actual utter gently caress I don't know what goes on in Anderson's mind or why.

Degeneration and Damnation on the other hand, I did enjoy, if just because I recognised the goddamn characters. Well maybe not so much Leon in Degeneration, that was actually jarring to see his personailty change so much from his RE2/RE4 appearances.

Hunters in the other games where they only do their decapitation attack if you're low on health.
Oh and the nightmares return...
-thousand yard stare-

You don't have to explicitly be low on health at all when it comes to these scaly pricks; the usual threshold is yellow (whether it's Fine or Caution, depending on game), which is still reasonably high. Healing to green Fine would stop them from trying to one-shot you, except in the original game, where once the conditions for allowing a headswipe were triggered they'd just keep on trying it no matter what you did for healing.

Nemesis on the other hand will usually lay off tentacle-punching a hole in your head as long as you're not on orange Caution or Danger. Although I'm convinced that him grabbing you while you're sprawled on the floor actually deals damage in the process too, because I've been killed several times by one round of failed button mashing numerous times when I'm sure I was still at least on yellow Caution.

Speaking of insta-deaths and the like, I remember playing a demo for Resident Evil 2 and being amazed that upon dying there'd be a little animation that played out when the screen went dark showing you being munched on by the zombies. So I purposely got killed by everything and the Licker had this animation where it would pin your head between the claw-fingers of one hand and rapidly pummel your skull into the floor over and over. However, I never once saw that again during the actual game. Was it still in there or was it cut? If it was cut, I wonder why.
Yep, this one was removed for censorship/rating reasons. I don't know what about it in particular warranted removal, because compared to some of the other deaths in RE2 it's really nothing extraordinary regarding massive head trauma.

Drunken Baker posted:

I missed the plethora of unique death animations in 5 and 6. Sure there were some, but not nearly as many as 4.
RE6 has far more unique death animations than 4 & 5 combined; there's one for near-enough every enemy type (and sub-type, i.e. weapon-carrying zombies/j'avo) if they attack you up close while in the 'Dying' state. RE5 definitely has the least, though, which was a bit of a disappointment after RE4 having quite a decent range.

On the subject of disappointing death animations and lack of unique thereof, Revelations has less variety than the very first RE. Just... fall over and that's it. The end. You Are Dead.

It's been well over a decade since I bothered downing Nemesis on every encounter (now I just get the easy knockdowns and avoid all the other encounters), and I can't actually remember what the reward was so I'll just take your word for it. Certainly sounds familiar enough. The only infinite ammo case I know of is the $9999 one in the shop after a Mercenaries run.

The Hunter will either appear by the staircase next to the medical room or in the mini-library on the other side of the mansion, and like all of RE1's alternate cutscenes this hinges entirely on throwaway decisions you make earlier on which shouldn't really bear any relevance. In other words, allowing Rebecca to follow you around (which she doesn't anyway because 1996) or telling her to stay in the medroom will decide on a few things. I don't recall if letting Rebecca practice on the piano or not has any effect on the Hunter scene, but it undoubtedly affects something, somewhere along the way.

In hindsight, Dino Crisis does feel a bit something like a dressed-up demo when you look at how little content there actually was. Even the first RE had far more variety in its weapon/enemy selection (although in fairness, dinosaurs -- unlike lab monsters -- are pretty limited as far as distinct behaviours go). As you say though, still a good game, and unlike the RE games of the time it actually featured full 3D environments which was a huge deal in making DC stand out from its undead counterparts.
