Clearly they're "Faculty" games. Gah, Resident Evil 4 and 5 are like the Faculty in sooooo many ways. Just an alien invasion.

not sure if trolling or just stupid

Definitely not trolling. I love the gameplay in the new games, but the storylines are god awful.

well i guess RE4's storyline was....stupid. It had nothing to do with the other RE games in the series. Atleast RE5 had wesker Chris and jill.

Agreed, what they did to the Resident Evil series starting at 4 was like taking a fighting game and making it a racing game or something. COMPLETELY different. I wasn't talking about the Resident Evil series as a whole though, lol.

No reason it can't be both.

That's a music video, isn't it. It must be. I refuse to give hits to youtube unless it's for a magnificent cause.

And RE4 had Leon and Ada. So your little point failed.


RE4 and RE5 are as much RE games as any of the other ones. As much as I love the classic games, there's no denying that RE4 and its popularity is the only reason the Resident Evil series is still breathing.

I never said they weren't great games, cause they are. I just think they're awful as Resident Evil games. Without Leon and Ada in 4, that game would be NOTHING like Resident Evil, whatsoever.

Same with the characters in Resident Evil 5, and the lickers.

The story in Resident Evil 4 and 5 is sooo different that I honestly wish Capcom had just made it a different game all together.

And yes, the video I posted was a music video for "The Faculty", and I posted it because it shows so many similarities between that and Resident Evil 4 + 5.

So the world setting isn't as important to it being Resident Evil as it must have characters from 1, 2, or 3 or CV?

That's a bad opinion.
