So people thought this game took it's plot and characters too seriously?

I think the blockbuster movie style of 5 changed it up a bit, compared to the B-movie influence on the older games. 6 is almost apocalyptic, so I can't say there's a lot of room for humor. Even then, it's not always well done, especially when Leon is involved.

Take this exchange from the Damnation movie:
*Leon meets his informant, Scarecrow, who is dying from a licker attack*
Leon: Scarecrow, this is Tin Man. Can you talk?
Scarecrow: hnnnnnnnnngh
Leon: *looks off into the distance* I guess scarecrows aren't exactly known for their rousing conversation.

LEON HE IS DYING

I wish Leon in particular had more funny lines in this game. Most of them were terrible, aside from "This is why I can never sleep on planes." He was far too serious. Most of the comedy gold came from Jake's campaign, most of which I don't think was meant to be taken seriously.

I don't recall Leon ever being funny.

RE5 was too serious, too.

It's as serious as the standard RE game.

The other games (0, Remake, 2, 3, CV, Outbreak, 4, Revelations) all had some funny bits mixed in with the drama to give it a bit more life, but 5 and 6 are pretty bland in that regard.

They all take themselves seriously though (well, aside from 4...god I can't stand that).

Take this exchange from the Damnation movie:
*Leon meets his informant, Scarecrow, who is dying from a licker attack*
Leon: Scarecrow, this is Tin Man. Can you talk?
Scarecrow: hnnnnnnnnngh
Leon: *looks off into the distance* I guess scarecrows aren't exactly known for their rousing conversation.


ugh...

Wow, that's pretty harsh. You know Leon's not real, right?

I liked that one from Code Veronica:

Alfred: "I am Alfred Ashford, commander of this base!"
Claire: "Oh? You must be one of Umbrella's lower-level officers if you're the commander of a backwater base like this one."

I'm predicting that this thread will soon be filled with nothing but Barry quotes.

That was the first time I ever felt bad about laughing at a RE Joke.

I mean, I know you're pretty jaded after all these years Leon, but that's ice cold.
