Why is this game no longer scary?

I remember playing RE and RE 2 in elementary school....I use to get nervous when going into the next room thinking what might be on the other side, and my hands would be cold while I'm playing.

Anyways, this kind of feeling stopped with RE 4 and onwards (the only time wen RE 4 was kind of scary, was fighting the regen monsters in the little hallway and freezer).

RE 5 is just...not scary at all. It's an action game, and most of the time I find myself sprinting through zombie packs, dodging the zombies, and bashing in their skulls. Rather than being scared.

New direction in order to increase sales of the masses that buy games for lots of bullet expenditure and explosions - nothing more to it.

And it will not be changing anytime soon.

RE 6 not scary either, like RE 5

I guess this marks the Decline of RE series and Dead Space overtakes RE in survival horror.

It's called growing up. Congragulations, you are now a man. I was the same way when I was younger playing and now there really isn't any game that gets me scared anymore.

I don't think they can really make the game scary given everyone is familiar with the story now. They can make the game tense I suppose by making think you are going to die around every corner. Also, the controls made the game tense back then and there is no way they would go back to those controls.
