This one looks alot brighter.
Hope it manages to pull off a good vibe like the last one.


Well that's the point. They aren't going to for the same feel. Bioshock was about visiting a society after its destruction. In Bioshock Infinite you go to one as it is collapsing. The setting, the sky, is a metaphor as well as a juxtaposition of the events going on there. So it looks bright, but the things going on there are decidedly not.


Ah so its like Vegas.
Gotcha.

RE was never that scary. I hated Dead Space. Dark Souls was really gripping for me, It had a good atmosphere and a lot of things that could easily kill you so I was always on my guard,

It was never scary in the first place.

And what does that have to do with anything? He was arguing that the old REs were hyper successful (actually they were only modest successes, even RE4) and thus they shouldn't change. My point was that RE5 was by far the most successful, so it makes sense that some of that game's influence seems prevalent here.

You can believe what you want about the people who play those games, but it doesn't change the facts.

There are more people playing games nowadays so saying that RE5 sold more isn't a valid argument.

I guess classic Mario games don't matter since NSMB has pretty much outsold them.
