    From everything I have seen it's basically the same type of game as usual, just in first-person. So if you didn't like 1 or 4, you likely wouldn't like this one. I'm in the same boat as you. I've always WANTED to like the series, but just never could get into any of the games.

    If you like Alien:Isolation or Dead Space - go with RE7. It's much different from the main entries in the series. I even consider you to buy the remake of RE2, just wait for discount.

    Yeah,RE2 is still expensive and I have no emotional ties to the originals to buy it at that price just for nostalgia's sake.Are the RE7 dlc worth the time and money ?

    Dead Space is basically RE4-6 with better controls, so I'm not sure how being like Dead Space makes RE7 different from the rest of the series? Genuinely asking because if it's different I might be interested as well.

    It's more survival horror than action game. I mean the pace is much slower and uneasiness and feel of isolation. 5-6 are shooters with upbeat music in comparison.

    Nostalgia? You don't buy games because they are good, you but them because of nostalgia?

    Like I said I generally don't and more specifically since I have limited experience with the RE games I don't have any emotional connection to the originals,but there are people who are interested in buying a remake because they loved the original.

    I'm just saying if he and I both dislike what RE is usually all about then RE7 would have to be very different to be appealing. It being roughly the same kind of survival horror game but in first-person doesn't really work, ya know? I watched a long gameplay clip last night and it definitely looks like the traditional RE experience but in first-person.

    Haven't played Vinland, but the other game they did (Dead in Bermuda) is sorta cool at least. Kind of a survival/management/RPG/strategy hybrid thing.

    Do you know why Indiegala is so scummy with their prices? They are located in Italy as me, when I go to buy a bundle the price is in USD but the conversion is not only wrong, but they also add an extra fee on top of it, so if a bundle is 5$ it becomes 5.40€ for me. I wanted to get Finding Paradise but I'll just pass and purchase it on Steam instead when it's discounted.

    That involves giving your Paypal mail to a total stranger, and also I think the Finding Paradise bundle doesn't apply.

    Anyone know what happened to the Spellforce online forums? They were fairly active for over a decade.
