I didn’t want a Resident Evil 2 remake.
I’ve had my fill of remasters/remakes/reimaginings. Maybe it was the fault of those hysterically dreadful Silent Hill “remasters” at the end of the last console-gen, but I’d become very jaded, very quickly, at the rabid appetite for reskinning decade-old games. Usually, I’m nonplussed about them. In Resident Evil 2’s case, I was apoplectic.
