@drummerdave9099: Disagree. RE7 wasn't Resident Evil. A good horror game, sure... but not RE. If they wanted that to represent what they wanted RE to be from here on, it shouldn't have been numbered. It should have simply been called Resident Evil, Biohazard, or even RE VR or some other side game name. Other than name, it basically has nothing to do with the rest of the series until Chris shows up the last two minutes of the game.
Yet it's the best RE game since RE4 by some very considerable margin. I love the new direction and hope they stick with it and don't go back to forcing people to put things in lockboxes every time they turn round a corner just to be 'oldschool' RE.
If they want RE7 to represent the direction their new games are going in it absolutely should be numbered. Sooner or later people are going to have to stop demanding that RE never changes.
Hilariously, the same people complained about 5 and 6 so yeah let's all listen to their dumbass 'point of views'. Just saying change is not a bad thing when RE7 is the end result.
