Many fans were outraged at the storyline and gameplay of Resident Evil 6 and many voiced their thoughts to Capcom. Capcom is now taking into consideration that the franchise may in fact need to return to its roots or get a brand-new reboot altogether.
Capcom’s Masachika Kawata stated, “I think that it’s important for us to have users’ needs in mind when making the games. At the same time I think what a lot of what people want now is to have Chris and Jill in a game, or they want it to look like Resident Evil used to look like. That’s what makes the game work for them. We should be able to start from scratch and reboot it. It would still be Resident Evil. We wouldn’t lose the essential nature of what makes it a good game just by changing the characters.”
What does this mean for the Resident Evil franchise? Could a reboot bring it back from the depths of hell where it was almost lost forever? I believe we have gotten way too caught up in today’s modern technology and are losing site of what really use to matter in games. Horror titles use to drag you into the middle of the chaos and have you scratching and clawing to get out of the terrifying world before you. When a franchise loses the ability to truly scare its players then can it really call itself a horror video game? Now is the time to save your game, because we are now returning to our first checkpoint dated 1996 in order to get this shit right!
