This. I'm normally a stickler for originals but honestly REmake got it absolutely right and the originals just seem like worse-looking versions of the same game.

>As good as the REmake is I feel like a lot of the camp appeal is lost

I think its merits as camp are debatable,since camp is a deliberate stylistic choice. RE1's "campiness" is just really, really bad dialogue and voice acting because back then there were no standards for game scripts and the fact that there was significant amounts of recorded voiceover work at all was still new and exciting.

"You, the master of unlocking" isn't funny, just stupid. The acting isn't self-aware enough to be campy.

I like the original Resident Evil for its difficulty. It is more unforgiving than later games. Hunters are NOT to be fucked with in RE1. They can insta-kill you with almost no warning.

Otherwise, it has never been my favorite because I find it a bit dreary and lonely to play. The music in some versions is a part of that; makes you feel tired.

That said, an overlooked feature of the original Resident Evil is how dynamic the story is. It's just little things and mainly only in Jill's game, but you can meet Barry in lots of different places, getting different dialogue or skipping bosses. REmake kept this, but only partially.

>I like the original Resident Evil for its difficulty.

Yes. One thing to know about is that difficulty may vary depending not only on region but also on version. In some versions zombies take more hits and deal more dmg as well than in others, but there is no proper documentation as to how each version is since it's quite a mess.

For instance I think that the PC version uses the easier Jap difficulty in all versions; unlike the original Saturn/PS1 releases which are harder.

>That said, an overlooked feature of the original Resident Evil is how dynamic the story is. It's just little things and mainly only in Jill's game, but you can meet Barry in lots of different places, getting different dialogue or skipping bosses. REmake kept this, but only partially.

IMO DS. You get the complete experience with some QOL adjustments to bring it more in line with 2 and 3. I especially like having the map on a separate screen. The Windows and Director's Cut editions are good choices too if you want to play on a bigger screen.
REmake is excellent of course but it's basically a brand new game and I think it's best when it's messing with your expectations from 1.

They used a sharpening filter on the prerendered backgrounds for REmake HD and altered the lighting a bit. Looks as good as you could hope for 480i prerendered backgrounds blown up to 1080p but it definitely looks different if you've played the GCN version.

Why do people constantly confuse camp (which is an intentional comedic approach from writers and actors who know they're being absurd but play it straight) with garden-variety incompetence (which can be hilarious but not on purpose).

The Adam West Batman series was campy. When Adam West whips out bat-shark repellent or does the Batusi without giving away the joke, it's not because he didn't get the joke, it's because him not acknowledging it's funny makes it more funny. He's deadly serious in character but he knows it's a joke.

The naked gun is campy. When Leslie Nielsen says "don't call me shirley" he knows it's a pun. He gets the joke. His character doesn't, and that makes it funnier, but he gets the joke.

When Barry calls Jill "the master of unlocking" the writers are completely serious, because they were not good at writing dialogue and probably didn't even notice how awkward it sounded because they were hastily trying to translate from japanese. And the voice actor is completely serious because he wasn't thinking about it very hard and just read what they put in front of him with whatever inflection the scene called for. They don't get the joke because it wasn't a joke. They were serious, they were just so bad at being serious it became accidentally funny. And incompetence is not ironic, it's just funny in the same way a guy accidentally getting hit in the balls is funny. You can laugh at it, but don't give the creators credit for being genre. I doubt the guys who wrote the game even knew camp was a thing.

The game doesn't perhaps look the greatest overall, but it at least tries to make a case for itself with some special content. And hell, if you had a Saturn, and you wanted to play Resident Evil, that was a way to do so.

What are crimson heads?

>> No.4891437
File: 84 KB, 368x398, crimsonhead.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google]

They were added in the Gamecube remake.

Basically, when you kill a zombie, his body will persist, and as time passes in the game, the body will mutate and turn into a much stronger, fiercer and faster zombie. You can tell if the body has transformed if the skin has turned red and his nails have grown out into claws. You can also see him move very slightly if you stand still and look closely.
As you move close, he will soon spring up and attack you, like he's lying there and waiting to ambush you.

To prevent Crimson Heads from happening, you have to either have destroyed the head of the zombie when you killed him, or you need to douse the body in kerosene and set him on fire with a lighter. The thing is though that the kerosene flask takes up an inventory space, and can only hold two doses of kerosene at a time, further there's only a couple of kerosene cans around the mansion, and they all have limited content. Further, if you're too late and attempting to burn a body, the Crimson Head might spring up on you as you're pouring the kerosene, wasting your dose.
One body in a hallway is scripted to already be transforming early in the game, and one encounter is set up later with an extra strong one, as a small bossfight. All the other zombies and bodies come down to chance.

It is, I think, one of the neater additions to the remake, and it really changes up the gameplay, as you need to weigh the use of 1 inventory space as Chris (who has a lighter in his 'special' slot), and 2 inventory spaces for Jill (where the lighter takes up inventory space). You either make it a point to systematically clear places out and burn bodies as necessary, going back and forth to refill your flask, occasionally lucking out and destroying zombies' heads, saving you doses, or you don't, and risk numerous dangerous encounters at numerous bad times, at the advantage of a less crowded inventory.
I like both the tactical element and the horror element that this all adds.

The Battle Mode is one of my favourites with RE3's and started the trend of battle modes.

Best version is american original PS1.

Hardest difficulty (no auto-aim, original damage levels, less ammo and ink ribbons per pick-up) is the most important to me, because beating the game feels more "complete". Beating the game in worse circumstances means you beat the hardest challenge. Knife-only playthroughs are significantly harder without automatic aiming, so it's an important distinction for bragging rights...

I also prefer the PS1 aesthetic (and the Saturn to a lesser extent) to the polished Remake graphics.

Dual Shock controls are complete bullshit, easy-mode, casualization. They do not make sense in fixed-angle games, and anyone defending them should be shot in the head.

i thought so too at first, but i think you can play the game just for the action of it, to kill zombies and shit. you can still beat it that way and it isnt wrong or incomplete, if thats all you want.
but then, diving into it to get the whole experience is what truly playing the game means, imo. its not just about beating it but about the experience you get as you play through it. from that pov one could say that beating it is actually playing it in all its possible scenarios, getting all endings items etc. thatd be another level.

I just beat RE1 for the first time with both Jill and Chris and I still don't understand what was really going on. If you can't answer this without spoiling RE2 or later then let me know, but what was the relation between the bioengineering going on and the year 1967? I'm assuming the bioengineering was something for military purposes happening more recently, while the mansion was turned into a booby-trapped madhouse in order to protect the bioengineering secret from trespassers/spies. But was the mansion booby trapped as far back as 1967? Was it built with that purpose in mind? Or was it repurposed later after initially being built as a regular mansion? As far as the virus that affected the 60s family, was that a naturally occurring virus that they just so happened to discover?

I meant they should do it really obvious, like Barry telling Jill "wait here, don't leave this room" or whatever, maybe even in a way that doesn't involve a hole and a rope.

I can't see why they thought it was better to have the player unaware they were making an important choice by how they progress. Elsewhere in the game it just flat out asks you if you want to follow Barry or not with a yes/no prompt, you would never expect the same game to do something so meta. It's just funny to me

The DS version is great for what it is, especially because it's the only one which lets you skip doors AND cutscenes, but it's just not the classic game.
Between the re-done 3D models, the new moves, and the altered zombie AI, it's just not the classic experience.

Also out of all 'bis' modes (Director's Cut, etc) the DS arrange mode is the worst, it's really bad.

Iirc from gamefan didn't the storage boxes in the Japanese version not carry over as a shared inventory?

No problem, here is a slightly better picture of the the section with all the S.T.A.R.S. Members.

In case you are wondering, it was only 12.50 for the game including shipping. I think it's a really fair price for a Japanese version of RE. The Art work is worth it alone, and it's pretty crazy to play the original RE from Japan.

I used to like 3, but it's just not a good game.

The movement controls are nice, and there's plenty of replay value due to random elements and challenge run potential. Gun powder is a great novelty too.

The problems start when you realise the following:

>the game is made up almost exclusively of streets, hallways and narrow paths. This makes exploration simplified, yet still more time consuming. So unlike earlier games, which could be beaten faster once you know the layout, RE3 stays the same length for the most part.
>it's an action game, but the combat sucks. Dino crisis 2 proves this point perfectly.
>it's an ineffective survival horror game because puzzles are all either incidental (needing to use a wrench or hose) or their only "challenge" comes from randomization of some kind
>item management is pointless, because gun powder trivializes it entirely. You could just make whatever ammo you need and coast. Never needing healing items, unless you fuck up massively.
>the plot is of no consequence and can (and has) be summed up in a line of dualogue in another game. On that topic, none of the epilogues ever lead anywhere either.
>combat is as it is because "muh horror" yet it's by far the least creepy, atmospheric or horrific RE game. And RE4 and on prove atmosphere is possible in an action game. So they effectively nuetered the potential in the combat for no reason. turning a potentially amazing game into a dull slog
>the game is built on gimmick game mechanics. Like that shit dodge function, ammo creation, random elements and etc. It's a house built on very shaky ground with no solid foundation, if you will. Any one of those would have been fine, but all of it together makes it feel like a novelty game that's no good without it's gimmicks. Which is actually true...

So it's a bad action game, bad horror game, bad action/adventure game, and has no other genuine redeeming qualities, aside from movement controls being smooth. It's a bad game.

Zero is good game, but it's just... painfully average, soulless.

Everything about it is "been there, done that", all they do is recycle stuff from previous RE games, like for instance puzzles, and only make them a little more different, a little more complicated. I genuinely believe this wouldn't have been a problem had it come out on N64, N64 version which looked a lot more colourful as well.

Everything new that the game brings is also not good. Good idea on papers, but terrible execution... like the lack of item boxes which in return only make the game more painful..

The Leeches, main theme of the game, also fail to be good enemies, both in terms of sheer horror or gameplay wise.

The 2 characters thing, the problem of which being Rebecca has so few hp and there is no point in using her... and there is no point is using the help AI to bring to a fight either except in a couple of overcrowded rooms, because they'll waste a shit ton of ammo and health.
If only this would have been a real 2 player co-op, now that would have been amazing. Even if it took to link 2 TVs, 2 consoles and 2 games I don't care, it should have been a thing, especially after Outbreak.

The story is a disaster as well, and technically speaking, between the controls, the moves, the 3D models and the FMW, the game is below REmake.

Weird, I liked it a lot. I would actually consider it my 2nd favourite "classic" RE after 2.

>> No.4908489

I really like 0 for what it is, but it fails badly compared to all the other classic games. 0 would have been an A+ game if you could choose to play as either Rebecca or Billy in the same way you chose to play as Jill or Chris in REmake. The partner thing was literally retarded. ALL it did was force you to send items up and down dumbwaiters and use Billy to push stuff that is too heavy for Rebecca. The no item box is a result of the partner system as well I suppose...also cancer. The fact that I am forced to stand behind a door and tell my partner not to follow and then have to run through a hallway twice and dodge the same thing TWICE (four times if I have to run back....) because I can't trust the AI to not start shooting makes me so mad. As another anon has said, there are a few rooms where you bring both characters to clear it but most of the time you run in solo because you can't trust the AI to not fuck up...fucking painful. The locations that you got to explore were fun though...

I am pretty sure this is true with REmake as well though.
