Why do people love the classic REs so much?

they weren't bad but unlocking a door to unlock a door to unlock a door to unlock a door got obnoxious as hell

btw RE was never scary

because they were fun and didn't need to be mainstream to be good and also they were part of our childhood that's my opinion

They could of used their guns or kicks to knock down those doors, but then the game would be 50 minutes long.

Because they enjoy collecting cranks, crests and highly ornate keys.

I actually like doing that. It promotes exploration, and while it can get somewhat monotonous, I find that style of gameplay cathartic in a way.

Because we grew up with them, there was nothing on our consoles like them at the time, the characters were endearing, and because exploration and puzzle solving is fun.

Nostalgia and opinions.

Because those people have a different opinion than you TC. Not everyone likes the same things. They enjoyed the detective gameplay as you backtracked and found interlocking areas in a trapped environment with a finite amount of ammo lying around and notes to read and give more of a background to the scenario.

TC, look up the definition of 'opinion'. At some point it will state that people have differing views of these 'opinions' I speak of. You will eventually learn that not everybody shares the same 'opinion' as yourself.


The more ya know!

Because I enjoy survival horror/horror adventure gaming and detective work/point and click gameplay. I enjoy exploring sinister environments, looking for keys, solving puzzles, conserving supplies, weapons/ammo to triumph and reading through people's diaries, memoirs, newspapers, books and memos to immerse myself in the current situation and the master plot behind it:

I mean, is it really THAT hard to understand and agree with?

Besides, just because Biohazard games did not scare you 1 bit throughout their entirety, does not exempt them from being horror games.

Get it?
