>RE4 was one of the greatest third-person shooters ever made
>Capcom followed it up with this
What went wrong?
>>
RE5 wasn't that bad. RE6 though, omfg that was complete trash.

The graphics were literally early ps2 tier.
>>
>>322634845
Forced coop. Single player is unplayable garbage.
>>
RE5 was good, fun co-op.

Of course, you can make the argument that co-op ruins the "horror," but of course Capcom was already taking RE in a different direction
>>
It's okay in co-op. You can see traces of what RE6 would become though. With shit like the chainsaw enemies not reacting at all to point blank shotgun blasts and that awful fucking turret section level. Or every cutscene being serious to the point of joylessness despite how fucking retarded the story is.
>>
>>322634845
Resident Evil 5 is pretty alright though, it has the most satisfying shooting in any RE after 4.
>>
It's pretty fun, until you leave the town part, then it's pretty lame.
>>
>>322634845
Mandatory co-op. Trying to beat play this game in single player is an absolute nightmare.

This. Sheva is only good as a fucking pack mule. Give her a sub machine gun? She fires 1 bullet at a time. She didn't pick up on melee queues to start a chain to take down the bigger enemies. Get hit once and barely get hurt? She uses your first aid spray instead of the single green herb.

The game would be a million times better if you weren't forced to play with her

Don't even get me started on the trash that is resident evil 6.
>>
>>322635405
The game was bad but it didn't look as bad as you're saying. C'mon now.
>>
>>322634845
Besides Sheva, the inventory and the setting come to mind.
>>
>>322636405
I never really had a problem with Sheva

I just gave her an MG and Sniper rifle and she took care of herself.
>>
A reminder that this is what could have been if Capcom didn't cave into SJWs and impose a buddy system that had a brown girl in it:

"We want the Call of Duty audience."

And for RE6, it was "We can the Call of Duty *and* the RE4 audience."

>tfw RE5 was one of the last games I played with my older bro before he married and had a kid and became lost too much dexterity to play anything
>>
>>322637628
I dont think SJWs had anything to do with it, and Sheva is black.

>a horror game where you are forced to co-op with a npc buddy

This is the problem with this game. Horror works at it's best when you are mostly alone. There isn't anything wrong with co-op horror if done right (see L4D). RE series is not one of them.
>>322637628
F A C T

Still pisses me off to this day.
>>
>>322638648
Leon's Campaign in RE6 was proof co-op horror could still be done ok.

But I dont even really consider RE4/5/6 horror games, more like action-horror
>>
>>322638569
They did. There was a backlash on RE5 because of that trailer. Articles also implied the game was going to be quite different then what we got.

You can simply look these things up. A black woman who's name I can't remember made a shitstorm about it and it was getting attention. Capcom of course isn't going to say it (no company would) but they were afraid because of the backlash from certain people and groups calling the game racist.

Game changed and this cannot be denied.

>Leon's Campaign in RE6 was proof co-op horror could still be done ok.

I just don't feel RE is a series that lends itself well to this shit. I don't mind co-op horror necessarily but don't expect your horror game to be well, scary if you have it in. SH2 and RE2 did it good imo. The escort mission doesn't last the entire game or even half of the game. RE4 was a little bit more but it was still at least far preferable to what we get now out of horror games.

Ashley was probably half of RE4 at the most and she can't really defend herself.
>>
>>322639119
Reminder that Capcom always saw horror as a rather niche genre and ways always moving toward action with RE, the growing popularity with co-op was only further incentive to mix around the formula. L4D was released a year before RE5 so it makes sense for them to want to cash in on the same consumer base, that being people who want to shoot zombies with their mates.
>>
>>322639531
Well they obviously suck at making co-op zombie horror games now. Very ironic how the company that popularized survival horror and the biggest IP that pretty much originated/popularized zombies in horror games now makes some rather bland games.

They might as well just copy DayZ or L4D instead.
>>
>>322639869
id venture to say no other developer delivers the action horror experience like Capcom does

Visceral Games with Dead Space being literally the only exception.
