Capcom's biggest mistake was listening to the RE6 haters, should have struck while the iron was hot and made an RE6 Gold.
RE7 has effectively killed the franchise.

re6 had a lot of good things going for it.

animations were really well done, one particular boss mutates a few times and its just fantastic to see how detailed the transition is.

Movement and combat felt super fluid and the counter/melee system greatly improved.

RE7 was the only one worth touching after RE0.

Interesting, as they have become more scummy, sales have dropped.

I doubt they see the connection though.

Seems to be the opposite. The scummier they got the more money they made.
Just let it go, alright.

Not surprised, back then RE was really niche, although well known series, since it was relatively unique. On top of gaming being a "nerd" hobby rather than just a hobby.

Wonder what the sales are like for Silent Hill.

I kinda had a little chuckle. The Resident Evil with the "controversy" is by far their best selling game in the franchise

Eh? According to this chart the real sales drop in terms of a mainline entry was just RE7.

But lets be honest about RE7, though. It was a spinoff (aiming for the viral lets play horror crowd) that they wanted to put the full weight of the franchises name behind. They made a push for it to be bigger than what it was, and like any of their spin-offs if it overtook the main series in sales they would focus the series on that. Since it was just a modest success, I'm expecting to see Leon or Chris back next game.

A modest success? It sold over 4 million copies in the first year it existed. If anything, that's the fastest any RE has sold, period

The sales numbers for Re5 and 6 are unbelievable... I see the appeal in RE 5, specially with th coop, but 6 is a heavily flawed game.


and RE5 isn't heavily flawed? It took everything from RE4, a near perfect game, and literally ruined it. RE6 at least tried to fix those issues.

It's disheartening that piece of trash like RE5&6 sold so much.
