I agree with Jim's points on RE4 being a masterclass, and I'm not saying he's wrong about the confused mess that was RE6. But I have to strongly disagree with his thoughts that RE6 completely took itself seriously from beginning to end, regardless whether or not you liked it, the game was bombastic and over the top so often with cheesy one liners and bosses that just refuse to die to the point of absurdity. One of the characters has a fist fight with the Nemesis of that game, like RE4 this game has times where its serious and times where its campy and fun. I don't expect to change minds about RE6, just that I don't think Jim is totally in the right here, even if you think the one liners and levity is as good as RE4, they are still there and RE6 isn't that grim dark game some made it out to be.

There is something of Devil May Cry on Resident Evil 4 and vice versa that is almost adorable. You can see how much one game influenced the other, DMC comes from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 4 has a little bit of the DMC's humor. It's quite endearing, to be honest. And the "Your right hand comes off?" dialogue is just the funniest thing ever done on Resident Evil.

8:00 "What are you buying?" "What are you selling?" "What are you buying?" "What are you selling?" "What are you buying?" "What are you selling?" "What are you buying?" "What are you selling?" Always loved doing that to piss my cousin off.

Leon: "Lemme get this straight. You've got guns, ranging from a simple pistol, to an arm mounted laser-cannon..." Merchant: "Aye..." Leon: "But you can't sell me ammo for any of them." Merchant: "Bingo, stranger." Leon: "............ *B I N G O ?* "

This isn't a horror game (c'mon we all know it) but I don't want too much humor in my horror games. Example of appropriate humor is in RE7. One example is jack when he says things like "goddamn, who's gonna pay for this?!" When breaking shit to get to you. The entirew garage scene etc. I HATE RE4. I'm a traditional RE fan, always have been. So time for a super controversial statement: I think the evil within is better in every way. It's the lovechild of Re and silent hill. Please don't kill me.

Iliqn Monev (5 months ago)
Thats my favourite game of all time, i remmember when i first started playin it was so hard for me on PC keybinding seemed so fkin annoying to me esp the no mouse part,then when i get the hang of it i could only hope for the upcoming RE games to be with this style of gameplay

RE4 is only liked or memorable to shooter fans. Specifically, shooter fans who hate Survival Horror genre (or any other genres really). Dudebros, because of their low IQs need everything to be a dudebro shooter. Those of us that love Survival Horror hated how our flagship series changed it's genre. There was already a bazillion identical shooters only dudebros can tell apart, but now there are no Survival Horrors. Dino Crisis 2 and 3 were shooters, Silent Hill simply stopped being made (and then became terrible), Fatal Frame stopped being localised and then ended, Parasite Eve 3 was a shooter. Now nothing but shooters and sadism simulators are even made anymore. I really miss Survival Horror genre, they have so much well written story and characters in them. Shooters only have two characters (criminal or soldier), and either no story at all or boring criminal or soldier stories. And so I remember that rubbish RE4 game as the point where console video games began to only be made for dudebros.

I really like Resident Evil 5. Probably the 1 in a million that do.

This was the first game I bought with my own money, for my first system that I ever bought all by myself, good times.

To play this game on pc is an payne in the a$$ with mouse and keyboard!I will like to se an remake of this game and made like Resident Evil 7
T Timeler (6 months ago)
It's funny because I began being a super-fanatic because of RE2. But RE4 is the next generations fan-grabber. I love RE2 the most even to this day. I'm looking forward to the remake. They remade RE1 very properly, so I hope they do as well with the RE2 remake. Anyway, great video, Jim :)
T Timeler (6 months ago)
Btw I know I'm watching this much later. But for ME it is new. I don't know how I missed it lol. So yea, there you go.

In Resident Evil 4, you could suplex a monk. For that reason, it'll go down in history as one of the greatest games ever.
Kobus Janmaat (6 months ago)
I personally did not hate Resident Evil 5 the should have kept out the gun wielding zombies though the story was ok Sheva was awsome wel i really liked the game i saw it more as a spinoff. But Resident Evil 6 was the first RE i did not finish i was so insulted after the zombie who took someone in its ribcage........ And the multiplayer OMG why was it in there. But Resident Evil 4 is one of my favorite Resi games after Resident Evil 2 and 1 i loved the regenerating monster they where terrifying i used up most of my magnam bullets i saved because i found the goggles to late. :P Never could finish Code Veronica my PS2 died i think i have have bought RE4 3 times on the Gamecube, PS2 and again on the PS4. I think they should rerelease Outbreak that one would work great with the better internet connectivity and the option to play alone is great to. :D

Also this game is remembered in Spain for other reason. The "spanish" people living there had MEXICAN accent, and yes, for spaniards it is a big deal. Imagine travelling to New York and everybody is speaking Scottish. Or travelling to London and everyone is Russian, trying to speak english. U will remember that game for life, no doubt. Still a great game!

Resident Evil 4 had 2 names: Shinji Mikami and the crazy Hideki Kamiya, too bad that Capcom let them go away!!
TheKeithvidz (9 months ago)
it came out 2005 but i had to buy it 2017 - that good. I agree with the writing in many ways plus - even Leon's humor shows he's not afraid of the horrors.
Blue Booth Studios (6 months ago)
I don't think Leon *is* afraid of the horrors! He's been through the zombie apocalypse a few times now, it's almost old hat for him.

Snake isn't trying way too hard? Funny.
Carl L (11 months ago)
It's hardly surprising that the merchant has not appeared in subsequent games, because he was still on the island when it blew the fuck up. Also, have you seen the merchant spoof video? Solid impersonation.
Blue Booth Studios (6 months ago)
Reasonable argument. With that said, I'd like to throw in a caveat; we didn't see him die, so we have no iron-clad evidence that he could not have left the island before it detonated.

Resident Evil 4 was best on the Wii. That is all I want to say.
Kobus Janmaat (6 months ago)
It played fantastic thats for sure thats why i bought a gamecube and after RE4 never used it again. :P

Never Knows Best (1 year ago)
re4 wasn't an re to me, it was capcom's capitalization of the halo/gears esque obsession that took over videogames and wouldn't be removed till the the dark souls esque era came in. it's not a bad game, it's just not resident evil.
Super Milkbox (1 year ago)
Wouldn't ''You're right hand comes off?'' be a grammatical mistake? Oh well, it's still a fun game.

Shame the merchant isn't in 7, having him lounge in the caravan would have been genius instead of the bird cages.

I never understood the apreciation for RE4, I've always thought it was the blandest in theseries (RE5 and 6 are shit but not bland) the only resident evil games I came to enjoy the most were resident evil 0 and 1(the remake), and the other entries before 4 were ok, I just find re4 an average game good enough to kill time with, the bosses became weaker and weaker, the zombies became less and less challenging as you progressed in the story and the only boss that actually got me stressed out and felt like a boss was one of salazar's guards that follows you around the sewers, and he's an optional boss, I went out of my way to kill the bastard without any explosive weapons (also explosive weapons are seriosly overpowered in this game, specialy the rpg). The only way to enjoy the game is to play it on professinal mode.
Kobus Janmaat (6 months ago)
You say Resident Evil 6 is not bland are you fucking joking me.

RE4 was the last true RE game imo. It's so sad it's been more almost 10 years now since we moved away from it.

I'm not interesting in RE7 at all. First-person horror games where you spend all your time running around pitch-black asylums with an inadequate flashlight as your only tool bores me to tears.

It's funny. I've never actually played RE4 but I know all about the merchant. My bro was obsessed with him back in the day while playing it, and still quotes him to this day.
Andyoats (1 year ago)
Y'know that thing you were saying about how Saddler is a cool villain? 6:35 right there is probably my favourite part of him. He just takes that insult in stride and, judging from that little laugh, seems to have a genuine sense of humour. ...The hell am I saying? You already know all of this, why am I telling you about it?

dalhar20 (1 year ago)
comparing RE4 and RE5 is like comparing apples and oranges. The gameplay of both have similarities, but there are certain nuances in both that radically differentiate the two.
MamoMark (1 year ago)
well Leon did have some funny one liners in re6 although not as obvious or frequent as 4.
aBDKstan (1 year ago)
RE5 and RE6 are great. fuck what anyone says

Do you know why the majority of people play games? To have fun, of course! I feel that many companies have forgotten this simple fact.
Kerfumptledor (1 year ago)
Ever since 2011, I've come to taking Saddler's name and call him Evil Ralof instead for obvious reasons. I mean, just listen to his voice and tell me you don't hear it. I do believe Saddler and Ralof ( Or other generic Nord male NPCs ) have the same voice actor. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Leon may have been lame in Degeneration, but he was a lot better in the sequel, Damnation. There are several extremely entertaining scenes of him trading quips with insurgents.
TheBrazilRules (1 year ago)
Actually RE7 seems more like the older games, with all the key items.

Leon being a completely different character in resident evil degeneration is no exaggeration. Especially since they made him look more Japanese despite the fact there's been no hint at all to him being from Japan or being from a Japanese family, other than his hair cut maybe?
