Ugh! Resident Evil 5 Capcom's best-selling game ever

Boooooo!

Resident Evil 5 has overtaken Street Fighter II as Capcom's best-selling game of all time, CVG reports, having sold 6.5 million copies. Resident Evil 5, you'll remember, is a really dumb game that aped Resident Evil 4 wholesale while destroying everything that made Resident Evil 4 great. It even managed to break some fundamental gameplay systems, like the inventory.

Of course, a lot of people loved it because, let's face it, you could be playing Aliens: Colonial Marines with your mates and still have a giggle. Co-op is a great tool for masking creative bankruptcy.

Capcom's total sales are up 17 percent this year and net income is up 20 percent. Also, Resident Evil: Revelations and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies reportedly "basically achieved projected sales."

Review: The Evil Within

I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Game...more

Is classic Survival Horror considered old fashioned now?

I like to be scared. I'm not some kind of dark-obsessed weirdo, though. I just really enjoy the feeling of being tense or terrified, so much so that I used to think that there was something wrong with me. Maybe there is. A fe...more
