I thought both Revelation games were fantastic. 7 was good, but it was incredible in vr. Resident Evil 2 remake was also a great game.
Revelations was ok, aside from that I think the franchise is pretty dead. 7 sales were so bad, 5 and 6 did significantly better and they were as generic as they come. We will see how 8 sells, but don't expect miracles.
This is just objectively wrong ... just like you saying RE "went into third person".
REVII did have ridiculously high expectations from Capcom at launch that were not met, but it's technically the fourth best selling game in the series when including remasters and the second best selling in the series not including them.
Resident Evil 5 with Remaster: 12.1 mil
Resident Evil 5: 10.1 mil
Resident Evil 4 with all versions: 10 mil
Resident Evil 6 with Remaster: 10 mil
Resident Evil 7: 8.5 mil
Resident Evil 6: 7.7 mil
Resident Evil 4 (original 6th gen only): 3.9 mil
I feel it's a little stupid to include every remaster available when talking about the most popular games in the franchise. When people have to rebuy a game to experience it again, that's obviously going to affect sales.
