Take away the history, which is better RE 4 HD or RE 5?

RE 4 provided me the better experience as a first time playthrough but I played RE 5 twice as much.

The only major thing RE 4 has over RE 5 is the setting. Unfortunately, that is the most important thing in games like this.

Nah.

RE4 for sure. Partner AI screws up game play.

RE4's atmosphere was great. Basically, that's the only reason I like it better. Also, I'm a Leon fanboy.

I liked RE 4. I tried the demo for #5, but couldn't really get into it. though that's partially because of the controls. Despite having at least similar controls, RE 4 was a good game. I was probably just tired of tank(i think that's the name) controls by #5 or felt that they need to modernize the controls. It worked for the earlier games because of the camera since it would automatically switch around on you(and thus randomly change your character's direction, possibly making you go the way you came), but doesn't in the later games because the view is behind your character's head/shoulder/etc.

I like 4 more, but 5 isn't a bad game, especially if you have a friend to play with. I'm not sure what's going to happen when GFWL shuts down, though.
