When ever a game comes out, did you wish that it turned out differently than what was released? Of course you do, look at Aliens: Colonel Marines. How would you make it if you had the chance to change it? My first game would be Resident Evil 5. Now, Resident Evil 5 isn't a BAD game, but it could have been better. Doing so would make it that Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 never happened. So here is what I would do if I got the chance to change Resident Evil 5. Please keep in mind that this is NOT a complaining post, this is just me getting something off my chest that has been there for a good long while.
The whole game is you gathering evidence. There will be puzzles, conspiracies to uncover, and the need to survive. The 8 hours you are given is in real time. Ammo will be scarce, but you are given the option to use blunt objects like crowbars and baseball bats. Typewriters will be back, and depending on the difficulty, you will be given ink ribbons.
Much like Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2, you can play as either Leon or Barry. Leon's and Barry's sections will be different from one another. Once you play both characters, the full story is unveiled to you. It's not going to be open world, but the town will be vast enough that it will feel open world. There can be full sections of the world that you can completely ignore. After the game, you are given a rank. The more evidence you find the better the rank. The highest rank will also count your herbs used, and saves you have taken. The information you provided will help form the B.S.A.A.
This has the right idea
There will be two types of gameplay to choose from; the classic Resident Evil with its fixed camera angles, or the Resident Evil 4 over the shoulder camera. Shooting and moving at the same time will not be present, but the dodge move will have its own button. Another thing that will be back will the merchant from Resident Evil 4. Because the lack of ammo, most of the upgrades will go to how powerful the weapons becomes.
Once you finish the game, there will be unlockable costumes, characters, a new game mode called Mercenaries, and a new main game mode called Re-Arrange mode. In Re-Arrange mode, all the items in the game will be in new places. Every time you start a new game in this mode, the items will be moved again. The unlockable characters you can play in both main and mercenaries are; Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker, Ada Wong, and HUNK. Most of the enemies you like in the series will be in the game, except spiders.
So that is my Resident Evil 5 treatment. After playing Resident Evil 4, I thought I knew that Wesker would mix those viruses with the Las Plaga. This is what I thought was going happen in Resident Evil 5. Take threads that sprung up in Resident Evil 4, and expand upon them. What we got instead was an average game that could have been so much more.

Hey. If you are reading this then that means you have found my blog. It's not hard to miss though, but it's nice to see that someone is reading it. Not much to go on than what I've written over there.
I also try not to spoil any game. No matter if it's old or new.
