Back when Capcom was way more talented and a lot less greedy. Remember that? :) Best RE game ever btw.
Talented? All they did was rip off Alone In The Dark.
Less greedy? Developer notes of this game stated that they made the game for a more wider audience in mind. Plus, it was remade from scratch halfway throughout development because they want the series to be more open for sequels.
Capcom (and other game companies) have always made games for a casual audience and for profit.
There is no such thing as a "Quick Time Event done right". A game that has Quick Time Events is a "video game done wrong".
