That’s because RE4 was a very fun game that had a big impact on the gaming industry. RE7 was neither.

RE7 went up against some massive heavy-hitters this year, too. Even if RE7 was less polarizing to the fan-base, it still had to compete against:

-Super Mario Odyssey
-The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
-Nioh
-Horizon Zero Dawn
-Nier Automata
-Persona 5
-Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
-Destiny 2
-Divinity: Original Sin II
-Middle-earth: Shadow of War
-Assassin's Creed: Origins
-Wolfenstein II: The New Order
-Xenoblade Chronicles 2
-PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (I don't really think this should've been included in a lot of award shows, but hell, it was)

So no matter how you feel about RE7, you have to admit that it had some heavy competition and their chances of getting GOTY awards from any publisher were really really low.

It's the last month of the year, where all GOTY awards have been awarded. This is a celebration for the last RE game that won GOTY awards.

It's not hard to understand what the point is. I know why you ask, and in the manner that you asked, but i'm still going to explain.

RE4 is bashed constantly on this forum as a game that ruined the series, yet it was generally loved and seen as a great game, and it's one of the top 50 greatest games of all time on any respectable list i've seen.

Congratulations Resident Evil 4, the last RE game that won GOTY awards.

Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj have also won a lot of awards. Does that mean their music is amazing? While I don't like RE7 and think RE4 is fun, I never liked this "its won so many awards and its super popular" to discredit the people who have issues with RE4.

I think RE4 is a fun but shallow game that gets a tad more praise than it deserves.

Well res7 is nothing new compared to 4.

That doesn't mean that 7 was bad but when 4 came out exploring stuff in a 3D world was still new to everyone
VN's that need to be ported to consoles

Just another excuse for Kev to talk s*** about RE7. Typical.
I probably love the games that you hate.

The point is, obviously, that awards mean jack-s***. And you know that.

I love RE4 as much as the next guy, but topics like these are pathetic. Like, people for some reason need to desperately prove to others that one game is better than the other. Just... why??
