>>323120802
the main reason i find this game so scary is because of how shitty tank controls are. the enemies come at you slowly and you just sit there desperately trying to get that little red dot on them. it's very suspenseful and intense.
>>
>>323121386
But the story was good and it was a FUN game. Which games nowadays try so hard to pretend they take themselves seriously yet they feel like torture.
>>
>>323120802
the setting was very creepy. being in a rural setting in europe controlled completely by a cult made me feel so isolated and helpless.

I genuinely enjoyed RE5 and put in dozens of hours. Ask me anything.

They realized the direction the series had been rolling towards since 2 and decided to have fun with it

>shitty controls

Your mad because you couldn't play the game like it were Call of Doody.
>>
>>323121890
the story was absolute shit.

really? the president's daughter was kidnapped? and they sent one fucking guy who's not even a professional to rescue her from a town in europe?

one of the most ridiculous backstories ever. that said, the setting itself was amazing and very creepy.
>>
>>323122075
you mean like every shooter post 2000?

tank controls are such shit that even resident evil moved away from them.

Everything for the game itself. Fantastic game that is still just as fun to play now as it was back then.

However, It shouldn't have been the template of the series and should have been a one off.

Simple, ingenious and immersive. Just brilliant. That description alone you made beats any game out there.
>>
>>323122270
stranger things have happened.

and they sent like 3 guys.

they don't want a big commotion over the president's daughter being kidnapped. that would send the nation into a frenzy.
>>
>>323122783
>honestly re4 is the only good resident evil.

Probably because you played 10 minutes of REmake and dismissed it because you never played a game with fixed cameras and tank controls and couldn't be bothered to into something that's not familiar to you.
>>
>>323122452
People say RE4 is not scary and although I agree to a degree, This fucker was quite frighting the first time you play the game. At least it was at the time. I remember being blow away by the enemies swarming me and this guy just running in swinging. Of course once you get better at the game he becomes easily to take care of, but still. It was an incredible feeling for a fan of the older games and coming into this game with this type of enemy running towards you. I was not ready at all.
>>
>>323121803

When you're in a large area like in parts of the castle just run to the farthest corner and keep Ashley behind you and then pick everyone one by one, it's really easy and it doesn't feel even remotely intense, especially if you're playing the new HD version with M+KB because the aiming is way easier, however I still think that a cunt-roller is the best way to play RE
>>
>>323123643
the beginning was terrifying and difficult.
i felt so overwhelmed by all the villagers and had so little ammo. the chainsaw guy was genuinely scary too. i was also still getting used to the tank controls and almost quit out of fear/frustration.
>>
>>323123643

...do double chainsaws actually exist?

>>323123751
yeah. i used mouse and keyboard for some of the game, but it kind of killed the challenge.

It's supposed to be a tribute to corny action movies. That's why there are so many small references to them.

How fucking retarded do you have to be to have Resident Evil fly over your head?

Have you considered going back to finish high school?

It's time to get triggered.

Fucking everything. It's pritty much perfect, the Ashley section in Ch. 4 only lasts 15 minutes and is ez.
>>
>>323120802
Bought it just last steam sale. Been chugging through it here and there. I forgot how hard it can be without having retarded ass weapons the moment you start. Then again I'm probably just getting bad at games the older I've gotten.

The shift from puzzles to more action isn't so bad, as the difficulty and ammo management still sticks around. Fantastic game that still makes my dick hard blasting fuckers in the face with a magnum.

>tfw you suplex mother fuckers

You pervert!
>>
>>323120802
Just played through this again a couple of days ago. Still a masterpiece can confirm.
>>
>>323124262
It's funny, Mikami actually made the REmake because he felt the series was losing it's path and wasn't more focus on the "scary" aspect. Then it sold kinda poorly and he thought made he could see if he balance horror and action. Which although was amazing game also cause death of his oringal vision for the series. He even said that he RE4 shouldn't have been the template for the series and didn't play RE5 until a couple years back.
>>
>>323121987
>dozens

I've put in hundreds. Seriously, RE5 is one of the best co op games I've ever played.

>100 percent completion plus platinum and DLC

>>
>>323124026
I've never seen any, and I can't think of any practical reason for one to be built.
>>
>>323125069

Too bad they couldn't balance the game for single player. Trying to beat the hardest difficulty with AI sheva was so painful.
>>
>>323125069
My homie and I played the fuck out of it on 360, pretty sure we got 100% chevos.

Not as good as RE4 for me, but it was a fun time to spend some coop time between it and Too Human
>>
>>323122783
The original (and by extension, REmake) has some decent resource management and interesting risk/reward scenarios.

The rest were largely poorly made action games up intil RE4, though.
>>
>>323125150

I beat it solo on the hardest difficulty. The only part I found difficult were the humvee sections.

Although I knew the game's mechanics inside and out, and that makes a HUGE difference in that game.

>instant/safe reloads
>pick up intangibility
>melee tech
>instant rocket firing

Game was surprisingly deep.
>>
>>323126398

Hardest parts for me were wesker parts, sheva basically just ran into him constantly and instantly died. Basically at the start of the first fight I HAD to throw a flash grenade or something then spam the call button.

Second fight I had to collect like 6 rockets and place them all in the center of the area so could do the hits back to back.

Also the part in the cave with the lickers, had to do that shit perfectly

>>323127159

For the wesker part, optimal strategy is to run straight to the door on the right, triggering a cutscene of wesker kicking you through it. Then ambush him with magnum shots till he doubles over and melee him. You can end the fight in a minute easy. This will also yield the heart of africa, a 10grand diamond. Meanwhile sheva will play chase with jill.

You pretty much got it right for the second fight. It was poorly set up.

Lickers are weak to acid rounds. These will flip them on their backs, and you can melee their hearts. Also, if you get close, you can trigger a counter hit QTE melee.

>>323127347
They were good, but not perfect. That was RE6.

>>323128915
>Also, if you get close, you can trigger a counter hit QTE melee.
This one is random? Also I recall that Nitro can freeze Licker.

>>323129031
Not really random. You had to be just the right distance to cause them to do a particular melee attack, which can be countered.

Everything except bosses and executioners can be frozen IIRC. Didn't mention nitros because most people use those up quick and never bother with acid rounds.

Oh yeah. They were probably my favorite enemies. My gf was jealous that I could take them out first shot every time without fail. She was too nervous to get close enough, despite being really good.

RE4 is shit because it spawned cancer like these two faggots.

People who never cared for the series and only played it because it was popular and because the main character is a faggot like them.
>>
>>323120915
>the game itself is fine

Duh. It's a 9/10 game, but a 2/10 Resident Evil game. It is such a shit Resident Evil game, it shouldn't have held the title. Fuck, it's one of the first major games recently to fully go in a different direction it should have been titled differently. Imagine you want to bang the third Olsen sister, and you get prime Lindsay Lohan. Sure you have great titties and The Parent Trap prestige, but it's no Olsen sister. That is what RE4 means to me. You wanted french vanilla and you got chocolate chip cookie dough. You wanted a million dollars and got 500k pounds.

>>323125069
This. The Co-op elements of the game are beautiful I played it last november with with my friend for the first time in years and we were surprised by how amazing the game looks graphically as well.

>People who never cared for the series and only played it because it was popular

What even gives you that idea based on my post? I've been playing the series since the very first game when my dad and I played together. The classic games have always been my favorite, faggot. Fuck off.
