Resident WTF?

I confess I was never was much of a Resident Evil fan. I didn't score my first PS1 until late 1998 (Bushido Blade was my must have game--BTW, thanks bro). My first RE game was Resident Evil 3: Nemesis on the PlayStation, and I loved it. I was not a fan of the save system, but I found it less cumbersome than Dino Crisis, so I had my "in" to the premiere zombie game series.

Then I tried Resident Evil 2, and was like "wha... I already played this didn't I?" and I dropped it. In the PS2 era, I poked at Code Veronica a little--it scared the piss out of me, and I couldn't comprehend the controls before dying. I had other games I wanted to play by that time (thus began the backlog from hell). I have an unplayed RE:4 for the PS2--I keep promising myself to upgrade to the Wii version, but the dreaded backlog and parenting keep getting in the way.

Now, along comes the Jim Sterling and his less than favorable review of RE:6. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Sure, the reviews are all over the place if you check Metacritic. Which reviewers should you trust: the XBox 360 reviews or the PS3 reviews? Honestly, on Metacritic anything about a 70 is usually worth trying, but wow, Mr. Sterling is not a fan. Given that the series has never really clicked with me, I'm not surprised.
