See… that’s the thing… I love 6 because of how ridiculous it was! It was slightly ridiculous in 4 with Leon hitting on Hunnigan and Ada…And then the President’s Daughter openly flirting with obviously overaged Leon as she clings to that hunk of digital machismo as he takes her on a jetski ride back to America! Hahaha! GOLD!
And then you get to 5, where basically Capcom flipped the rulebook such that now every weapon could become an infinite weapon with max damage! You actually got to the last level with enough weapons to arm all of Africa and more ammunition in your magnums than needed to kill 15 Albert Wesker monsters… except you didn’t even need them because if you focused upgrades you had Infinite Magnum before you got to Albert Wesker!
That was bananas.
Then you get to 6 with the really twisted globe-spanning zombie pandemic plot, capped off with that weird romantic-action story between Jake and Sherry… and who could forget golden exchanges like
or Leon’s “Welcome to the club, Jake… .You get used to it.” line upon realizing the RE family of characters just got bigger.
Hahahaha… Guffaw inducing expensive action film with jumbo jet crash, train crash, motorcycle and helicopter chases… giant monsters you fight with harrier jets!
6 was the ultimate! (for me).
I really appreciate you guys recommending 0 and 1 to me… But if you read the above… what are the chances I just don’t like those two?
RE is a weird thing. We can like the same characters, the same story arcs, but not for the same reasons.
This is just like how Blake Dexter is a cool goofy villain for some people, or a crass stupid goofy villain for others.
