darkvoid2100 posted... Re2 sold well back in 1998...a game like it would not sell like that now. pretty much fact sadly.
The closest we've had to another RE2 is RE4, ironically enough. Just make a few minor adjustments and RE4 would play very similar to RE2.
But what you've said could also be applied to RE4 since it sold back in 2004. It's the combination of high quality and having it on multiple platforms (GC, PS2 and PS3, X360) that helped RE4 and RE5 sell as much as they had. The majority of RE2's sales were on a single platform (Playstation).
