This would have sucked imo. Resident Evil should not be about the paranormal, even if it the ghosts are visions induced by the Progenitor virus. RE4 was a great game and it still retained the way that all of the enemies could be explained by science.
I had not seen this before. I had heard about it. It's a shame they scrapped this, removal of ghosts to Bio enemies would have worked wonders. I must also say that the sound design is superb as in SIlent Hill superb. The doll parts had me really scared.

I've been a fan since RE1 (not day one, but I jumped on board in the spring of 1997), and honestly, I do like the stuff they've been making. RE4 and RE5 are both solid, in my opinion. I can't vouch for RE:ORC, though.
A real gamer will buy any system and enjoy it; a tool will sit on a forum and bash one or the other.
Shinji Mikami was the one who decided to scrap this and start fresh. He was dismayed by the game because he realized that it wasn't very good....it wasn't just the paranormal aspect, it was almost everything about it. That is why he started fresh and I like the finished product that we got.
...and about the doll comment above, are you really telling me that animated dolls are scary, but parasites controlling your central nervous isn't? I disagree with that. Am I the only person who thought Child's Play was ridiculous and stupid, but not scary?
