I think perhaps a "mix" would be the best option, but let's just keep it down to the bare. REmake style, tank controls and fixed cameras, or RE6 style which would be over the shoulder and complete freedom.
By mix I mean like it's fixed camera, but you have free movement for example and an option to change the style if you wanted. I'm not including this option simply because of the ridiculous arguments that have occurred and since both sides seem so sure that one style would be better, let's see what the people who visit this board think. Keep in mind this is NOT for a "new RE title." This is for a remake.
I would easily, most definitely go with REmake. Look at MGS for example. If MGS1 was remade, (not TTS please) then please add the free camera, CQC, etc. But why not remake the old RE games to be more action like the new ones?
Simple. Because the old RE games and the new RE games are two different games. It wasn't constant addition to the gameplay like MGS did. RE changed the gameplay completely.
Yes, gameplay wise it was just the camera that changed, controls were the same. However, the rest of the game wasn't. You don't get all that ammo in the classic games like the new ones. And then if you look at RE6 specifically, you see Gears of War/Call of Duty. It's nothing like survival horror.
It's really two different games now, TBH. Although Revelations tries to blend the two. I stress try lol.
I'd kill to play RE 2/3/CV modeled after Remake, with a little extra content, expanded stories and new areas to explore while keeping their traditional Survival Horror elements such as limited ammo and supplies, puzzles and jump scares. Please make it happen Capcom!
When facing a zombie apocalypse, don't join up with a group. Why? Because you'll end up blowing your own head off due to all the pointless drama caused within.
