Here's my opinion on the issue; Resident Evil 2 happens to be my first and most favorite game of the Resident Evil series, and I really love it. So a remake? Absolutely! If they remade the original game on the Gamecube, later released on the Wii and then remastered in HD for the PS4, then why can it be remade?
It would be really awesome to feel that kind of scare that we all had back in the days when Resident Evil was REALLY, REALLY scary before all that action, fast paced gameplay we have nowadays. I sincerely hope that the remake captures the same feel even with advanced graphics like in the RE1 Remake, hopefully some voice actors like Alyson Court, Sally Cahill, Paul Haddad and so on. But we shall see what will happen if this remake is made and done.
If a remake is done, let's just hope that the gameplay is not too fast paced like the previous games such as Resident Evil 5, 6 and Operation Raccoon City. Don't get me wrong. I liked Resident Evil 5, but I hated Resident Evil 6 and Operation Raccoon City, although not so much as the former. What I liked about ORC is the "What if?" type of story it had taking place during the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3.
So, if Final Fantasy VII has a remake and if Resident Evil 1 had a remake, why not RE2? Heck, I sincerely hope that RE3 is remade as well. So, if you guys want to talk about it, comment and go for it.
God Bless and Play Hard Gamers!
