I would have some pretty big changes, but the one that I think is most important to me is that with hindsight, I actually think the original RE REmake is better than REmake 2. And I would put CV up a few slots as well. But I am glad to see my choices stayed pretty solid over the years!

Ironically, opinions on RE games between myself & my friends changed quite dramatically.

I used to be extremely annoyed by RE 4 RNG. But once I got new game plus, I didn't have that as a factor & had no other complaints really. I don't care much for the island overall but new game plus makes it not bad. RE 4 ended up in my top 4. It's 1 of the 4 RE games I ever finished replaying a second time on my own. The others being RE 1-3 remakes.

My friend who used to love RE 4, had a strong change of heart after a conversation made him think it was too much action & not enough horror in recent years. It became his second least favorite of the main games, only beating RE 6. They also used to have RE 2 as their favorite, but that changed to RE Remake.

I honestly have lost some of my love for RE4 over the years because of the arguments people have made. I still rank it as my second favorite RE game because it is still an amazing game.

But yeah. it does have a lot of cheese and annoying segments (lava room, drill room, mine cart rally, etc.), loses steam as it goes on, and it really just said Umbrella was brought down in court and the stock market. But I dont hold these things as against it as I should because when it comes to gameplay and fun, it is the top RE game when you consider the time period.

I agree with this. I've criticized the game very harshly numerous times, but that was only from the viewpoint as a fan looking back, but it's objectively still a terrific game. I know when it first came out, I was excited for it and I enjoyed it without question. Same with Resident Evil 5, and I still stand by each game as video games. They're some of my favorites and they definitely have merit outside the boundaries of the series.

My age and wisdom has only made me more sour on the game as a fan, but it also made me more aware of why I love this series so much. Knowing why this game is different made me understand what exactly I enjoy about the classic games in the series, but the enjoyment I got from Resident Evil 4 never dissipated because I've also come to understand why exactly RE4 just works so well despite any personal fan related criticism. That doesn't mean the game is flawless by any means as I still feel the game has some serious pacing issues, but it's not enough to tank my entire opinion of the game.

The only other RE game I keep having complicated feelings of is RE 7. I have tried playing it through 2 or 3 times now. The farthest attempt, I got to the ship before stopping.

Maybe it's just my genuine interest in RE Village trying to find a substitute game until it releases. Or maybe it's myself enjoying RE 7 more as I get used to it. Either way, I don't know if I will ever push to finish RE 7 or just skip ever finishing it myself & aim for RE Village.

To be honest, after you leave the ship, there is not much game left. The ending gets a little rushed (as almost all RE games are nowadays), and if you wanted to, you could finish the game out from there. If you have enough upgrades, the game is much easier at the end too, so if you have the desire to do it, I would say you have maybe 2.5 hours left depending on how much of the ship is left to play.

I probably won't touch RE 7 again. Any time I try revisiting another RE game that isn't RE 1-4, I just end up wanting to play one of those instead. RE 4 is possibly my #2 game of the franchise in retrospect, since new game plus gets rid of my complaints, where any complaint I have in RE 2 & RE 3 are always there.

I can't bring myself to play the original RE 2 & 3, due to the stutter during camera transitions causing nausea. So I just have the remakes to play instead, which have minor things I wish I could change but I still enjoy. Mainly, RE 2's scenario structure I wish was the original, where A scenario is Birkin focused & B scenario is Tyrant focused, allowing to switch who is focused on which villain story wise. RE 3, I just wish the maps were interconnected.

I actually am taking a break from RE games until Village. It has the potential to become one of my favorites. I really enjoy the idea of a Transylvania type place, especially if it's an interconnected Village. The enemy types & environments I find interesting. The inventory seems to pause gameplay, which I wanted in RE 7. The gathering money & resources I hope isn't RNG, or if it is, hopefully treats me better than RE 4 RNG.

Most likely the drops will be generated based on how well you are doing in the game. RE4 and all subsequent enemy drop titles have used this principle, so it makes sense RE Village will do the same thing. The nice thing about RE4 is that they will drop primo ammo if you find yourself out of a certain type more often than not. But if you play too well, you are getting garbage anyway. haha.
