A thought about so called dead characters

#1skermacPosted 11/26/2012 10:48:51 AM
There's been a lot of back and forth lately about if Wesker and others should be in future video games. Some say yes, some say no because they are dead.

Here's the point, the characters are not real people and are not alive or dead and have never been! If Capcom wants to reuse any past character again that's their right. Characters don't have to look aged or anything.


Some characters like Wesker I would like to see again I admit, but if I don't it's no big deal. The games are not following some soap opera historical time line so the games can be about anything or anyone. RE4, 5, and 6 aren't related to each other except the name in the title, so RE7 can be about anything or anyone. Just my opinions. Anyone agree?

My opinion is that you're just trying to shut people up.

I don't want to shut anyone up at all, just saying what makes sense to me, which may not to others.

Agreed 100%.

Wesker is immortal and can never die. Wesker will be back and be stronger than ever.

The stupidity in this topic is incomprehensible.

Doesn't matter what some minority group of people want. At the end, what Capcom decides that matters. They wanted to bring him back in 6 but they decided to keep him dead at the end and thankfully it seems they have moved on from Albert Wesker and made a new character Jake to continue his legacy.

Also, I don't understand what you mean by RE4,5 and 6 aren't related with each other?

Chris killed Wesker and that has effect on Chris and Jake's relationship.
Hunnigan was introduced in RE4 and now therefore her role in RE6 is quiet clear.
Not to mention, Leon's dilemma to trust Ada after all RE4 events when Helena ask him about her.......

I made a topic saying Characters should stay dead, but I wasn't shutting anyone down by any means... Some people are really convinced there alive and I don't want them to get there hopes up and then depressed and hate Resident Evil because of it. But I will roll with what ever Resident Evil does.
