RE 2 Remake. Unlocked everything as it was so addicting as hell in terms of replayability.

Well?

Metro. I've enjoyed RE2 but to be honest didn't even bothered doing the 2nd run.

RE2. I unlocked everything as well. It was fun doing so, not a chore or grind. I'm still playing it too.

It's close but metro edges it for me. I loved both though sekiro slightly beats both as my favourite so far this year. Best games so far this year mind.

Zombies were a bit too bullet spongy for my taste.

On the other hand, Metro had excellent shooting mechanics. Both games were nice, I far prefer Metro though.

that's kind of the point, tho I guess lowering the shots per kill and reducing the available ammunition would achieve the same result

let me guess.

Metro have far better storyline, better gameplay, far longer and have more variety, better atmosphere in general.

you cant say one is better factually without playing other.

but you played one that is 4 hour game that lack variety and has only 2 location and calling a game better than a game that is wider in scope, more ambitious, longer and even better storytelling.

I respect your opinion always.

RE2 has Claire mods so it doesn't really need to bother with characters or story. The aesthetics do the job.

Also after the Sergei and Yulia Skripal poison attacks it's difficult to be invested in Russians plight. They probably started it.

I had a better time with Metro.

I enjoyed RE2 more than I expected, but didn't feel the need to do a second playthrough right away. might eventually if I get bored enough.

Metro is a bit buggier but it has so much more variety, better atmosphere and was a more memorable adventure. still my GOTY thus far

why do best genre today need hiatus? if any genre need hiatus. its open world games like far cry or assassins creed.

RE2 has more substance. Metro is more of a narrative game, requires less thinking. Lacks actual level design etc...

said like someone who hasn't played Exodus. (which isn't a jab you have admitted to not playing it).

the third big area in the game has some pretty stellar level design. it doesn't have puzzles like RE2 so of course it has less thinking. its more about immersion and atmosphere. not figuring out some strange arbitrary logic for progression like in RE2.

Played the other Metro games and watched Exodus. None of the games have the depth or substance of Resident Evil 2's.

In fact, it's objectively badly designed in places with scripts more important than the mechanics.

Resident Evil 2 is just a really competent, highly replayable game it can't compete with.

As a survival horror game it combines old and new par excellence, both true to the IP while evolving it in a meaningful manner. Exodus just follows the trends of other open world games, very uninspired to say the least.

you haven't played both so your opinion is effectively invalid in the debate of Exodus vs. RE2. watching a few clips on youtube not the same as playing.

not saying RE2 isn't solid but I did find myself mildly bored while playing it at times. half the game spent running around a small police station. gets kinda old. Dead Space did Survival Horror better 10 years ago

LOL posting same out of context video every time.

Original Metro does have excellent level design especially dead city and creepy atmosphere.

Exodus have far more dept than RE2. its not even open world game. it mix between semi sandbox and linear section time to time. like think of Crysis 1. has same weapon customization etc.

Completely in context my freind, the script ignores the player state because it prioritizes story over game play.

An unfortunate truth.

I just meant I fully explored and banged out every achievement minus two (HC Ranger Mode and completing the certain level w/o being detected) and don't have a reason to return unless, of course, story DLC was ever released. RE2? I still have a decent amount to do and with more DLC coming, it's easy to pick it back up.

RE2, I expected to like it and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Metro I only enjoyed a little, but less than I expected to. Id give Remake an 8/10 and Metro Exodus 6/10.

Resident Evil 2

Metro Exodus is garbage. So garbage that I uninstalled it at the end of the first chapter (Winter). The braindead AI barely worked in the linear tunnels of 2033/Last Light, and it totally breaks in Exodus's wide open areas. Then there's the bugs, the laughably bad story, the annoying characters, zero tension, that excruiatingly slow boat you have to row about in, the check list exploration that felt completely artificial, the half baked scavaging / crafting system which replaced the unique bullet currency mechanic, having to clean your gun every time you walk through a muddy puddle otherwise it jams up and becomes unusable, ect ect. Literally every gameplay mechanic in Metro Exodus is a chore. Godawful game.

You've objectively got sh-- taste if you think Metro Exodus is better than Resident Evil 2

Not a fair comparison.

RE2 is a prime GOTY contender and Exodus is a mild improvement on a middling shooter series. It's not even gonna make this year's top-5 shooters list.

i liked re2 remake the most, Metro exodus was okay, but you don't get survival games like RE2 remake anymore. Metro is just another shooter to me, its good, but nothing special on gampelay perspective to be honest, plus it ended on a ver very very low note, i thought i was like 60% through the game then it ends very abrubtly out of nowhere. RE2 was very short, but it felt way more climatic and better paced imo.

Yes it's worth replaying again as Claire. In my opinion she gets better guns. Story and some levels and scenarios are also different.
