Always nice to meet another fan of the game! Thanks for reading and for the comment!
When it first came out it felt like Jeff Gerstmann was the only pro critic that liked it…which was funny, because he’s usually very critical/hard on action games since it’s a favorite genre of his. It seemed like he too couldn’t understand all the hate.
I’m sure that the massive sales success of Monster Hunter World and RE 7 means that Capcom will double down on being an MH/RE factory…but I still miss the days when they took chances on weirder stuff even if they didn’t always know how to sell it.
Bionic Commando, Dragon’s Dogma, Lost Planet 1, Dead Rising 1, and the Sengoku Basara series are all really cool games in my opinion. Not to mention the totally weird disregard of Mega Man, Final Fight, and all the other great IP in their stable.
At least Dragon’s Dogma got a modern re-release.
