I can navigate the entire game of Remake 2 without ever looking at the map. I can know where I am at and where to go at all times visually.

In RE3. I have to constantly look at the map. All the time. Both for which door I need to go to and to see what my characters orientation is.

Didn’t you say it’s your first time playing it? Give it a few runs and you won’t need the map anymore. I don’t even collect the maps in the original trilogy anymore. Only games I still use them in are Zero and Code Veronica cause I never played them much, 2 of my least favorite RE games.
When your name is finally drawn, I'll be happy that you're gone. Ash to Ashes, Dust to Dust.

Yes it’s my first time playing it but I think it has more

Yes it’s my first time playing the game but I think it has more to do with how convoluted the map is and how many corridors with forks there are. The map in OG re2 is much easier to navigate visually without opening up the map.

Yeah, the opening bits of RE3 are kind of a confusing snarl of corridors that require a lot of memorization; lots of doors open up in places you've already been. REmake 2 not only has a more easily digestible (some would say "linear") layout, it benefits from the OTS perspective, wherein each location is immediately recognizable.

Eh, give it some time. Once you've finished the game about 3+ times (including completing Mercenaries at least 9 times), then you'll be running through RE3 without ever needing the map.

Hell, I still remember accidentally pressing the map button and being surprised at seeing the areas; I had completely forgotten that the map was an option.

Yeah, the outdoor stuff especially in RE3 is hard because it's kind of samey, it's kind of random, and it's the most nonsensical city ever designed.
That aside, I think it's also easier to keep your bearings with the over-the-shoulder camera, especially on a first run, compared to the constantly shifting camera perspectives of the fixed camera games.

It makes total sense in a city that has an RPD with puzzle doors and secret passageways.

I know! it totally does. I'm sure Raccoon City people don't even think of it given what their police station is like. That doesn't make it make sense tho. :)

I agree the map in RE2 is more concise, but RE3 is barely less concise imo.
