Honest question, why would you be put off by RE 4 Remake?
Has it more to do with not wanting to replay a game you have played before, or just not liking RE 4?
I just wasn't a fan of the whole Plagas deal, as well as the QTE's. Resi to me is Resi 1-3, Code V, Outbreak, and the first half of 6.
I've played 4 before, but it definitely wasn't one of my faves. 5 was alright for co-op, but it's story, and again QTE's I felt were over the top and silly, as well as Chris having godlike strength. 8 looks like it's making Chris as edgier person than he was in the second half of 6, it's like Capcom cannot keep one character consistent for more than one game, they've always got to change up a character per instalment, and it just wrecks character lore and personality for me.
Like, in the movies, we had Wesker acting like a temp good guy, but then he backstabbed Alice, which I saw was coming, but Paul WS Anderson doesn't really know Wesker all that well, and Resi 5 showed that Wesker isn't the type to buddy up to anyone, he's a user.
I'd dare say KH does a better job at keeping Sora consistent than Capcom does for Chris/Jill.
