While I don't dislike RE 5, there is a part of me that wishes the series would return to its roots. Hell, I wouldn't mind
Maybe RE 4 was the best mix of innovation and old school. It's certainly one of my favorite RE games and probably one of my favorite games ever. Resident Evil, to me, is something that should make you think. Not only about the puzzles, but the strategy of how to use your limited amount of supplies to your advantage. I remember in Code Veronica when I got to the Tyrant in the plane part. How I died and died some more, until I rethought how I was approaching the situation. There are many similar situations in the RE series. Sure, it sounds frustrating, but what a feeling.
I hope when a new RE game is released for home consoles, it will remember its beginnings, if just for a bit. This is a series that means a lot to me and maybe I just want to be stuck and frustrated again.
