Haven't played a RE installment since #3 for Ps1. Checked out the free demo - pretty creepy. Story/theme seems way different than what I remember from the old games. Might check it out - wiki says its a new cast of characters and only has "some" connections to past games.
I liked 4/5, hated the controls for 1-3 so I didn't play them. Was there a 6 that I didn't know about?
#6 was released in 2012. After that, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 was released in 2015.
Interesting to note that the new Resident Evil game (7) is First-Person. First FP game of the franchise if I'm not mistaken (as mentioned, haven't played since #3). Smart choice for the company and market because it's compatible with Playstation VR, but I've always have been and always will be a proponent of third person games. Also, I tried numerous VR devices in beta through friends that work for the companies and I really didn't care for any of them. The Microsoft HoloLens was mediocre at best. The HTC Vive was kinda neat for the "Tilt Brush" game. Young kids would love it.
If NMS was on it, I would. A co-worker win it from taco bell. Then another co-worker bought it off them for 1/2 the price. We played it one evening and it was cool. I find that it's a bit blurry. I can't focus on things in the foreground. Playing a space game made me sick, but the office game was fun.
