which would you rather have, a Resident Evil 7 or Resident Evil Reboot?

I like the older games more then the new ones, but I rather not have a reboot. Mainly because I fear what they would do with the reboot. I rather see them learn from their lessons, know that just because Umbrella is gone doesn't mean new problems can't emerge. Like maybe there is an intelligent virus similar to the Parasite Eve story(Not the Squaresoft game, the original), or maybe two countries want to go to war using these viruses, or maybe we get brand new characters who aren't soldiers that are trying to survive a place with zombies, or maybe even go the route of the movies and just have the zombie apocalypse happen, and the heroes are devastated they weren't able to stop it. There's several angles they can go with in RE7, and I hope they don't recycle the Umbrella story with a different name like they did with the past 3 games. The Umbrella arc was great, but we don't need to see this story over and over again.

Resident Evil 7...I don't think I reboot is needed and doesn't really make sense.

Reboot the franchise...

New premise, story and characters... well it's okay if it's on the same universe, just all new stuff to pull of. And please, oh please, give me a character that's actually human and helpless...

It depends. If all the current characters are removed, I wouldn't want a reboot. The characters are why Resident Evil is awesome, I'd hate for all of them to disappear. A re-imagining of the story and its inhabitants wouldn't be as bad, depending on how they went about it.

I'd prefer that the series continued. Conclude the stories of the characters we already have (Ada, in particular, would be greatly affected if they just rebooted the series) and work on reintroducing elements that the fans want before moving on and starting from scratch.
