Forums - Gaming Discussion - Shinji Mikami- RE3 quality a bit lacking, Code Veronica should have been numbered

This isn't news, but then again, it's probably not well-known.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yet RE has still never had a game that good ever since.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I agree that Code Veronica is better than RE3 and it's kind of forgotten about most of the time. Like the fact that the rumors are saying RE4 is the next remake Capcom will release, skipping over Code Veronica. I'm guessing the politics business is because CV was originally released for the Dreamcast.



Signature goes here!

I think we all knew (especially after you played it) that Code Veronica felt more than just a spin-off. So hearing that it was suppose to be a numbered game should be no surprised.

For me RE3 was my favorite after RE1, but Code Veronica deserved to be numbered while RE4 to 6 shouldn't exist.

Same for me, nothing wrong with the quality as far as I'm concerned.

Yes, RE4 and 5 are possibly even better than the whole franchise in PS1 in quality and gameplay. But for me they aren't resident evil, they are on a different genre and would be much better imho if called different and had different cast. RE6 is a turd though, but I'm thankful for it because it made RE7 possible, which for me is the best RE because it made the original game on a current technology and perspective (RE2 became great as well, even though I didn't like it originally).

My understanding is that Shinji Mikami intended for Code Veronica to be the real RE3, due to the fact that it was an actual sequel, whereas the game that became RE3 was just a side game that runs concurrently with RE2. Sony learned that RE3 was going to be on Dreamcast and wasn't happy about it, they wanted to keep Resident Evil a Playstation exclusive franchise, so they paid Capcom for exclusivity on Resident Evil 3, and the side game became RE3 while the real RE3, Code Veronica, got downgraded to side game status. 



It's a real shame that Capcom still treats Code Veronica like the red headed stepchild of the RE family after all these years. If the rumors are to be believed, they are skipping a much needed Code Veronica remake and going straight to RE4 remake next. Screw you Capcom.
