Anyone remember early footage of RE4 and it was actually somewhat scary with a shadow man that had a hook for a hand that was stalking you? It had an almost supernatural element to it. I know there was a fan made game that tried to replicate the early footage (Resident Evil Code: Madman) but I don't know that it made it anywhere. I would like to see the next main entry in the series be maybe third person, horror oriented, and with the new RE engine, personally.

Here's a playthrough of the Madman demo btw

Yeah it might be neat. Really I just wanted 4 to be it.

Loved the atmosphere of the 3.5 gameplay but the supernatural enemies fit more with SH than RE.

I hope we get another creepy mansion setting for RE8 like in the video above.

Well technically 4's beta took place in Spencer's castle which was an idea reused for 5.

It's not supernatural though. Leon's infected with the viral agent that H.C.F. attacks Spencer's castle with in the beta of 4 which causes him to hallucinate at times. I think it was supposed to make the player question what was an wasn't real so as to make them have a higher chance of wasting ammo.

Visually it is supernatural though, even if it's just hallucinations. I'd rather RE just not go down that route.

didn't we already got RE7 already?

I want a game that talks more about Umbrella, and stop with the secrets to the end, I wanna learn more from previous games.
Most RE fans feel that way dumb*sz. It's pretty common to find people disliking ORC/6/movies for being over the top action as well as other reasons" REEEEE

What more is there to say about Umbrella? They found Progenitor, made T, made G, caused the Raccoon City Outbreak to happen, sold stuff to terrorists, and then Chris and Jill led the attack that destroyed Umbrella and Wesker made off with their stuff.

Leaks from a very reliable source are saying that RE8 is taking inspiration from the 3.5 build, so yea
