    Fallout 3 is a decent game but you won't see a lot of people praise it. RE4-6 and some of the spinoffs are the only bad RE games IMO. 0-1-2-3-CV-Remake-W/E the online was called-REV 1-REV 2 and now RE7 are good games. I've missed most of the console only games for the WII etc so not sure about em.


    Also pro tip for those who plays the game. If you see animals such as crows shoot em. They drop loot! If you see 4-5 close to each other waste a nade. It is worth it.

    not really. it fails at everything it tries to be. whereas RE4 succeeds at everything It tries to be. tbh I consider RE4 to be one of the greatest third person shooter games of all time.
    What about RE0? that was a pretty solid title as well. also Dead Aim and the outbreak series.

    0 is in the list? And Fallotu 3 actually has a nice sandbox to explore. It failed in story/writing and i guess a bit in the RPG part. But not a total flopp.
    And RE4 being one of the best 3rd person shooter? The evil within is like RE4 but everything is better in that game. Can't think of a single thing RE4 did better TBH.

    being a shooter.

    The Evil within is like a perfect balance between classic RE and RE4. it has much more to do with avoiding enemies than it does with fighting them.

    yeah but its a story driven RPG in which to have fun you have to ignore the story and fuck around in a sandbox. and the shooting is horrible and on top of that it fails at worldbuilding, meaningful choices, and it has a grand total of four interesting characters including characters from DLC. its not decent its actually very subpar imo.

    So, would you recommend picking up The Evil Within?

    Unsurprisingly, I don't have any problem with game series switching genres or emphasis on different gameplay elements. Alien was a great game but Aliens was just as good because it didn't TRY to do the same thing but did something different. Then again, right up until 2-2, I was trying to play RE4 like a survival horror game and didn't have a problem doing so.

    Lots and lots of running away, conserving ammunition, and being scared shitless of engaging the enemy.

    :)

    One more tip: Always search the area before continuing onwards. Especially if you've cleared out an area. Especially since you're in the castle area now.

    The evil within had a weak start IMO but i loved it. Feels exactly like an improved version of RE4.

    All I know is I'm having no luck running away from the invisible bugs in the sewers. Well played, RE4, well played.

    yes, the way you're playing RE4 now is basically how The Evil within was intended to be played. its supposed to be the last game Shinji mikami will ever direct.

    Well, I'm now past the Maze and having switched to just murdering people, it seems the game has become MUCH easier as there's always drops necessary to keep me going.

    Oops.

    ... Sounds more like you want more games like planescape torment than you do more telltale games.

    If you've played the Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and/or the Walking Dead then make that claim I don't understand you at all. All three games are awesome with awesome characterization and writing.

    It's just...everything else which sucks.

    The problem is that these good Telltale games are more the exception rather than the norm. With every TWAU, there's a Minecraft Story Mode. With every TftB, there's a Back to the Future game. So on and so forth.

    Hence, Telltale's relatively bad rep. In fact, the latest installments of The Walking Dead game have removed any goodwill I had towards the first one due to how much weaker the writing is in comparison.

    I's pretty funny to think that Rhys and Gortys are the same VAs respectively as Joel and Eliie from The Last of Us. I mean, I don't care about the latter but it's a funny image.

    In any case, I've finished Resident Evil 4. I shifted to shooting everything and looting which helped me get the money to get all the weapons I needed and the game became much easier. Still, it was a challenge to the end even with conserving the rocket launcher for the boss battles.

    I also went on a spending spree with my writer's check getting Revelations 1 & 2, Operation: Racoon City, Resident Evil 1 and 0, RE 5 and 6, and Resident Evil 7. Which, honestly, was only about 150 bucks total and not actually that much out of my writer's check.

    Overall, what did I think of Resident Evil 4? Yeah, it really was THAT good.

    http://unitedfederationofcharles.blogspot.com/2017/02/resident-evil-4-review.html

    It's also good inspiration for my writing both in Cthulhu and my sci-fi assassin series I'm working on. Funny fact, you could consider RE4 to be an adaptation of the Shadow over Innsmouth. Which is great work but one rarely adapted well.

    I'm also trying to decide which of these games to play next. RE6 I have no intention of playing but I just bought because I was feeling completitionist and it cost 15 bucks.

    I'm not entirely enthusiastic about the movie as it basically reads like a hypothetical Resident Evil 7's plot following from the previous less-than-spectacular games. "Neo-Umbrella's leader, the MERCHANT OF DEATH, is going to unleash Bioweapons on New York! We must stop him, Chris and Leon! Are you bad enough!?"

    Neo-Umbrella really confuses me as it's a terrorist movement, not a company.



    Leon is Norman Reedus?

    About what I expected to be honest. Still can't top Resident Evil 1, 2, and 3. Code Veronica was the start of the decline of the series, when Wesker came back like magic and Matrix was way too popular. The Remake was and still is the high point of the series. Resident Evil 4 signalled the new generations entry into the series and their handholding, action set piece bullshit.

    I have a number of RE games, most of them are just downloaded on my PS3 (RE1-3) with RE 4 and Code Veronica on the PS2, RE0 and REmake on Gamecube and RE6 on the 360.
    I should really go through them one day (and rebuy RE5 again on the 360 as I had all the DLC for that).

    Funny story, I got RE6 as a Birthday Present one year for the 360, then the next day I went out and bought a PS3 with all the Metal Gears, so in about 3 and a half years, I've probably played a grand total of 3 minutes (I get that it's the most hated of the series, but honestly, I could look past that and just get a shit but fun game. As long as it stops caring, I don't mind. Only reason I don't rate it harshly like I do with F4 is because RE7 looks like it brings it back a bit).

    But yeah, as someone who isn't into horror (I love the atmosphere and the creepy feels, but I REALLY HATE jump scares, to the point where they actually piss me off), I do enjoy the RE games.
