So I was on vgchartz.com, and looked up the sales in Japan for this series. Neither Resident Evil, its remake, director's cut or prequel topped the charts in that country. The prequel didn't even succeed at breaking into the top ten, which is probably why the franchise ended up becoming an action oriented series soon thereafter. Yet according to that site, all the sequels did reach number one, except for the one everybody praises - Resident Evil 4. How baffling is it that the two best ones didn't reach the top spot, huh? Evil or Very Mad

The site hasn't been updated for a little while now, so I don't know about the remake of 2. Although I wouldn't be surprised if that was a chart-topper as well. But anyway, according to that site, Survivor and Operation Raccoon City ranked higher than the first remake - and they both did reach number one in Japan.

What... the... shit? monkey

Tell me that's a lie. pale

Mankind is doomed! Banhammer

I didn't even know about any of this stuff until I looked it up. But once seen... cannot not be known! affraid

P.S. I noticed that only Silent Hill and Silent Hill: Downpour charted high in Japan. Uh! silent

Vgchartz.com is considered extremely unreliable by practically everyone. Don't pay any attention to it.

Not that I know of. When I need sales numbers, such as when the subject of RE7's first week of sales came up a while back, I just rely on third party outlets like Kotaku or any sources cited in Wikipedia's Reception sections.

Rock, you really need to keep certain discussions in the right topics. This is another post that probably should be in the RE8 discussion topic.

Oh, right. Sorry. I take your point. Can I bump a thread if I'm the last user that posted in it? Wink

Yeah, that's fine. Right now, since you and I are the only posting members, you can consider the no double posting rule suspended for the time being. Just don't abuse the privilege too much. Wink

In fact, I'm going to be doing a rewrite of the rules to streamline, clarify, and amend them. So if you have any input, be sure to speak up in the rules thread about it.

In terms of the OT, I think there should be further horror-ish games, but also action ones for those that like that style. Maybe reserve this for spin offs, so that the main series stays true to its roots.

I'd also like Capcom to think about replacing the main characters, due to their age. It would add some realism, and if sales are what people are worrying about, well... I think it's a divided amount of fans that we have that either only like one styel, one camera perspective, or they don't mind anything. Spin offs won't be expected to sell loads of copies, but at least they'll keep "the action fans" happy.

As I said, though, vgchartz is an unreliable source, so don't pay attention to it.

Chris and Jill both would be in their mid-40s as of this year (Leon and Claire are both younger, then you have even younger characters like Sherry and Moira), so I don't think age is an issue. Military personnel will often serve into their 50s and neither Chris nor Jill have shown any signs of slowing down.

And that isn't taking into account Capcom possibly deciding in the future to "freeze" their ages like Ubisoft did with Sam Fisher due to his popularity.

For that reason, an episodic series may be ideal. I find I maintain interest better that way, as momentum can drop if they take years to bring out another game, that does its own thing again. I mean, I don't mind that Capcom does this, but they should finish one story in an acceptable way instead of constantly throwing around new plot points.

The original topic this thread was made for has been resolved (via my pointing out that VGChartz is unreliable), so I'm just going to lock this.
