They did, the camera angle used in RE4 is the basis for every third person shooter now. Cliffy B even admitted Gears was inspired by RE4, --- "Shop smart, shop s-mart." -Ash, Army of Darkness UMVC3 Main Team: Wesker(b), Sentinel(a), Strider(y)
Because Capcom wants to cater to the casuals and new RE fans. They're the only ones that think this game is good and a step in the right direction.
I'm a old school Resident Evil vet, I beat REO, RE1, RE1 Re-make, RE2, RE3, RECVX, RE4, RE5 and RE6. I don't hate the new RE like most people. I'm not saying they are better than the old school ones either but they couldn't keep the old school controls and gameplay anymore. What they need to do is combine the new and old school RE gameplay but they won't do that because casuals. Every game nowadays is being "dumbed down" for casual gamers......its sad gamers don't like challenge in their games anymore...... --- GT : GodSynn Top 100 Ranked Warzone #67 / Ranked TDM 7.8 K/D & 50.3 W/L
