Hey Capcom, where are my First Person Resident Evil games and remakes at?

Would you have liked for RE3 to be in First Person?

I don't understand. Resident Evil 7 was the franchise's long awaited return to form, and one of the most praised aspects of that game was the first person camera it pioneered into the franchise.

Or, did it? Because Capcom sure is acting as if this game didn't happen. With RE2, they went with a third person camera which... Eh, Capcom likes to change things up so it's fine. But with RE3, I really hoped they'd change it once again by making it first person and having each of the remakes follow Resident Evil's own history by having the first one have fixed cameras, the second an over-the-shoulder view and the third one by having a First Person camera.

The reveal was such a blue-baller, too. Showing first person footage after everyone figured this was RE3 was definitely a great troll, but they got me hyped for a second there. I hope there's a first person mode at the very least. What do you think?

Making RE3 in first person would not have been the right call at all. A potential RE8 sure!

I would have been really disappointed if RE3 was first person.

Then again, RE7 is probably my least favorite from the mainline Resident Evil games.

The original RE3 was third person so it would make absolutely no sense for the remake to be first person.

If this was RE8 it would be a different story, but keep it third person for remakes.

Absolutely not for REmake 3 or 4 or REmake anything
RE 8 sure, fine
But if I'm playing as Jill or any of the OG main protagonists I don't want FPS

Please no more first person Resident Evil games Capcom. Let RE7 be the only black sheep of the series.

I would love for RE8 to be first-person, as RE7 is probably my second favorite game in the entire series.

But they should keep the remakes and side-games as 3rd person.

I'm curious if there will be a toggle for RE3 given that the trailer had so much first person perspective. Similar to The Evil Within 2.

I'm not against first person for RE, since I loved RE7, but I think Re2Make was a really pitch perfect game control wise, so I don't want to get rid of 3rd person either.

I’d be down for RE8 first person, but I also think there’s a good chance that the degree to which RE2 outperformed RE7 means 3rd person is the future for the franchise.

The Resident Evil fanbase kinda gives me Sonic fanbase vibes in how fractured it seems to be.

You have some people wanting RE to be survival horror, you have some people wanting RE to be action focused, you have some people wanting it to be third person, others first person, etc

I don't like first person shooters and I see no good reason to remake third person shooters to be first person.

There was a nice 1st person camera mod for RE2 Remake. Worked pretty good. played parts of it that way. Could instantly switch back and forth as well.

Third person RE is best, especially when you're playing as the iconic heroes.

As much as I loved re7 and no problems if 8 were first person, I'd be annoyed if 3 switched perspectives that drastically.

First Person was a major complaint of RE7, I don't think they'll do it again. At the very least not for a mainline game.

No, I'm glad RE3 is third person. RE8 I want in first, but I feel doubtful that will happen too.

I'm of the mind that the remakes should adhere to third person camera angles. New games can and maybe should be in first person for the sake of variety. I imagine RE8 will be come along within the next 2 years.

Resident evil survivor did first person over a decade before 7.

Personally I can't stand first person games so I'm glad. Sucks for those that like them though.

Optional toggle wouldn't be a bad thing.

Though the PC version will that that first person mod ala RE2 in a few days anyway.
