It's difficult to put myself in the mindset of my younger self, when gaming was taken less for granted and felt fresh, but if I HAD to, I'd go for RES4.

I haven't played GoW4 yet, but it has to be pretty damn revolutionary if it wants to stand next to RE4. For the industry, RE4 was one of the most important games of all time.

RE4 (when I played it) is better. I beat that game probably 10 different times on different difficulties. GOW is better now but I have no urge to play it over. I did everything, platinumed and loved it but it’s not on that level for me.

This for me as well, minus the platinum trophy. God of War is top-tier, but it's also very similar in feel and design to a lot of other if less-polished games that have come out in recent years. Resident Evil 4 was unlike anything I'd ever played up to that point, and I couldn't stop playing it and replaying it for years, including buying the Wii re-release on Day 1 and playing through it multiple times again. In fact, I might go play it again right now, lol. God of War is like the Last of Us to me. Great game, loved the experience, but I'm done with it.

Considering I think RE4 the worse thing they ever done to RE, then it will be hard for me to consider GoW4 below it.

Blasphemous! *mean mug*

Besides the point of me not liking RE4, it isn't even a RE. They should just called it another name and made it a new franchise.

RE4 was something so bad for the franchise that it directed it to RE5 and RE6 that are very hated and need to return to root on RE7 to find appreciation again.

RE5 and 6 were just trash, that's not RE4's fault. RE4 was good, theres no reason they couldnt make a third person sequel that was better than what we got.

I'll rephrase it. RE4 isn't RE. It just use the same name for the game and characters. RE5 and RE6 is just it getting more and more action oriented which was what RE4 started.

Called it Leon Adventures would be fine.

For me we have RE1-3, Code Veronica and then RE7.

Threads like this will always be made because people love the new game and are curious about the new game's place amongst the greatest of all time.

I feel like it does GoW a disservice because it really is a fantastic game. Easily amongst the best in recent history. It'll take time for the "newness" to wear off. Then, I can give a better answer.

True. I consider Dead Space to be the true RE5
