Its unfortunate that actually interacting with Resident Evil 6 is an excruciating chore. This is a wannabe action film that resents your interference, and punishes you by forcing one horrible quick-time event after another upon you. - Gamespot
This people, is why you don’t leave Ninten…
There’s more content and variety here than in any other entry in the series, and its stories – while a little too goofy to really take seriously – are nonetheless fascinating, particularly for those of us who’ve watched these characters grow and develop over the years…RE6 is a strange experience, to be sure – but more importantly, it’s an unforgettable one. - Official Playstation Magazine
The heck was that?….oh, it’s just OPM.
Anyway, as I was saying; this is why you don’t leave Nintendo.
Some of you may be reading this and thinking “what the heck is this dude smoking?”, well I’ll tell you exactly what I’m smoking: the deadly toxic poison of truth.
And the truth is that the best Resident Evil games were on Nintendo systems! The best versions of the original PS1 games are on the ‘REmakes’ for the Nintendo Gamecube.
And the pinnacle of the series, the timed Nintendo Game exclusive Resident Evil 4 was at its best on both it’s original system and the Wii version. Yes, one of the few times the console version of a game was actually better than its PC counterpart, was on the Wii. Who would’a thunk it?
But of course, as soon as Capcom betrayed Nintendo, that’s when the series went straight downhill. Resident Evil 5 only achieved an 86.62% score on Gamerankings, a severe drop from the 95.83% score Resident Evil 4 achieved.
And then we have Resident Evil 6.
Resident Evil 6 is an incessant, monotonous slog from one room of shambling opponents to the next, providing cheap gun battles for people who truly have given up on enjoying something better. - Destructoid
Make no mistake about it, Resident Evil 6 is a bad game.
No, don’t give me excuses about how “5/10 is actually an average score and anything over that is good” and that “you’re a raving idiot that no one should take seriously”. When even IGN gives a game 7.9, you know either someone forgot to bribe the right people, or the game really is monumentally awful. In this case, it’s safe to say that Resident Evil 6 is a bad game and you should feel bad for considering to pay money for it.
So what does all this evidence point to?
That once you go Nintendo, you cannot go back, because you will become terrible. And that Bayonetta 3 will probably suck.
Take a look at the other companies that once swore allegiance to Nintendo, only to remove their connection and suddenly leave to their doom:
Rareware - The creators of arguably the greatest games of the second half of the 90’s, only to be purchased by Microsoft where they suffered a slow, cold demise into making Kinect games.
Factor 5 - The technical geniuses behind the Star Wars Rogue Squadron games, left Nintendo for Sony; where they created the disaster called LAIR and died.
Silicon Knights - Made great games on the Nintendo Gamecube, only to suffer working for Microsoft on Too Human, leading to an embarrassing legal defeat and the death of their prestige.
You abandoned your Capcom Five glory days, Capcom; and Resident Evil 6 is the latest example of your continual badly-misspelled downfall.
