    Are there any RE fans out there?
    I completely love the RE franchise.
    I love the games, I love the movies, I love the comics...

    Personnaly, I think RE 1 and RE: Code Veronica were the best RE games ever made.
    The story of RE: Code Veronica was very intriguing... I still think Alfred Ashford was a great villain.

    I liked it how they linked all the games together by introducing Wesker had survived his encounter with the tyrant in RE 1.

    RE 6 was a great game to play. Its graphics were very good, but I did not like its story.
    After they dibanded the Umbrella Corporation and killed off Wesker and Spencer, they apparently couldn't come up with a good story.
    Its main characters (Chris and Leon) are a bit too old to be superheroes saving the day, so...
    They introduced Wesker's son, but I think they should not have done that.

    I made a RE6 thread some months ago before it came out but it didn't get many replies. Frankly, I think the series peaked with RE4. 5 was OK and after playing 6 I came to the realization that it's just not the series I used to love. Too much action and not enough puzzles, exploring, or even much horror. I couldn't even bring myself to finish Leon's campaign in RE6 and from what I've heard that's the most "old school" of them. :(

    The spooky "alone" atmosphere that the earlier games provided is just gone. Instead of conserving ammo and hoping I can take out the zombie in the next room with a single headshot, I'm now running through war torn cities shooting everything I see with a CPU partner or even worse, a random person from the internet who invades my game without my say-so. I wish I hadn't sold my copies of RE Zero or the Gamecube REmake. I'd love to pop either of those in my Wii and play though again.

    I did watch your RE 6 thread. :)
    Indeed! There are not many RE fans on this forum.

    The whole Las Plagas thing was a creative way to relaunch the series.
    I like the idea of having a parasite control your body.

    RE Zero was good! Marcus! :)

    I am particulary interested in the leadership of Umbrella (Spencer, Marcus, Ashford).

    Maybe the RE series should go back were it started and be a bit more like RE1.
    Maybe a new RE game could be about that organization Wesker and Wong were temporaliry working for.

    I started playing RE 1 back when it came out on the Playstation but stopped because of the horrible controls (and, if I'm being honest with myself, because it was really scary). I've since played RE4 on both the GameCube and Wii and loved it.

    I've tried to get into the series, but survival horror isn't usually my genre.

    I agree. The controls are indeed horrible in some RE games. RE1 was not the only one...
    The purpose of the RE series is creating games which are scary. As Darth-Lando and I were discussing earlier on, the series is really losing its way to scare people.

    What kind of games do play if I may ask?
    Personally, I am not much of a gamer, so...
    I seldomly play games.

    I usually play RPGs but I like a good FPS every now and then. Right now I'm playing Skyrim.

    Have you ever played any Silent Hill games? I think you'd like the atmosphere of those games.

    Up till now, I have not played RPGs since everytime I try to play one, I somehow get a virus on my PC.
    That is why I never played SW Galaxies.
    A friend of mine tried to install TOR, but his computer crashed due to a virus...

    I have not played Skyrim yet, but I did like Oblivion and Morrowind!
    I like games in which you can do whatever you want. Exploring and such things... I love wandering in desolate landscapes...
    A friend of mine told me Skyrim was not as good as Oblivion.
    What do you think (well, I am assuming you played Oblivion, so if you did not...)?

    I did watch the Silent Hill movie, but I never played it yet.
    As I said, I am not much of a gamer, so...
    But I do think you are right. SH might be something for me.

    Oblivion got pretty boring after a while. All of the Oblivion gates were pretty much the same, and I had nerfed the game by figuring out you could stack chameleon on each piece of armor and get like 120% or something. That really broke the game, but was entirely my fault.

    So far I like Skyrim more than Oblivion. I mean, you get to kill dragons! It's also a huge world. I've only been to three towns and I already have a 20 or so side quests queued. You'd probably like it.

    How was the Silent Hill movie? I didn't even realize they made one.

    Skyrim really is amazing, of course I haven't played any of the Elder Scrolls games before. I also have a slightly funky perk setup, because I didn't really know what I was doing in the beginning. I would like to think Skyrim will appeal to your desire for exploration, @General Immodet.

    I think they even made two. I only saw the first one. It featured Sean Bean, Laurie Holden and Kim Coates. I did not know the other actors.
    The movie was fun to watch, but it was not great. Sometimes it even made me think of RE.
    It was nice to see the devil in the form of young girl. The end is quite ambiguous.

    The gates were pretty much the same, indeed. I did destroy half of them. Then I quit and ended the main quest.
    Sometimes Oblivion got stuck. Some quests were unable to play out due to something being wrong with the game itself...

    Skyrim is indeed a game I would like to play in the future.
    The only problem is that it is a massive game. When am I ever going to finish it?
    A friend of mine told me he thought the oblivion creatures were more exciting than the dragons, but I guess that depends on what you like.
    He thought Skyrim was not really a sequel to Oblivion as Oblivion was to Morrowind.

    Idem. Thanks for the advice!
